Denim Styles We're Loving For Summer 2018
While it may be very hot out — denim's a year-round kind of thing. No matter how sweaty you may be — these denim styles will have you wanting to wear jeans 24/7, especially if you can pair them with a barely there crop top. It's still summertime, after all.
Every summer brings about a new way of wearing denim styles, and summer 2018's all about combining your favorite types of pants — cargo pants, jogger pants, carpenter pants, track pants — with denim fabrics. The end result is a cool new way to wear classic blue jeans.
These are some of the biggest denim trends we're loving for summer 2018. If you haven't already tried these out — we highly recommend that you do. Because this type of utilitarian fashion statement likely won't go out of style anytime soon.
1. Carpenter Jean
Contrast Stitch Carpenter Jean, $69, Urban Outfitters
A hallmark of carpenter jeans are these oversized pockets and really, the bigger the pockets, the better — in our opinions. This pair also comes in a great neutral color and wide leg style that can easily be dressed up or down. No complaints here.
2. Flare Jean
Super Flare Jeans, $78, Free People
The '70s-inspired silhouette is still alive and well in 2018. There's no better way to dress up classic jeans than by adding a flare at the bottom to show off your chunky heels. So, get some super cute heeled sandals and rock this look all summer long!
3. Track-Inspired Jean
Chambray Suspender Jean, $38, Forever 21
These are a little more fancy than a pair of track pants, but just because you're "getting dressed up" doesn't mean you have to ditch your comfy pants-wear style completely. Especially not when jeans like these exist!
4. Wide Leg Jeans
Pleated Belted Crop Jeans, $89.50, Levi's
You're sure to stay cool — even in the summer heat — when you're wearing breezy, laid-back pants like these. This style is easy to dress up or down and will become a go-to this season.
5. Cargo Jean
High-Rise Wide Leg Pants, $24.90, Forever 21
Darby recently bought these pants and calls them her "Kimpossible" pants — which they definitely are. Consider these the chic upgrade to cargo shorts that you never knew you needed.
6. Jogger Jean
Cargo Jogger Jean, $69, Urban Outfitters
