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
Joggers, a.ka. the socially acceptable sweatpants, have been reimagined to create a cool cinched denim look. These '90s-esque pants are sure to make you look like a total badass whenever you wear it. So really, what's not to love about 'em?
So, which of these denim trends will you be shopping for summer '18? We highly recommend all of them!
