The Only Denim Trends You Should Spend Money on This Summer

Summer is meant to be in full swing at this point, however the weather has other ideas. So there's only one thing for it: it’s time to get serious about which jeans you're going to wear until the sun arrives. We already have a plethora of guides on the best sandals, swimsuitsskirts and dresses to wear for the summer but there's lots to know about which denim trends are right for this season too. Unless you plan on sticking with the basics (think plain jean jackets, skinny jeans or classic cutoffs), you might be pleased to discover there are some super fun options around right now.

So what’s worth buying when it comes to denim? If you ask me, the below five categories stand out from the pack—by a landslide. From on-the-rise trends our editors have a hunch about to established ones we know will be sticking around a while longer, just keep scrolling to see and shop them all.

Loose-Fit Jeans

One of those rare instances in which a trend is actually comfortable, so we're not asking questions here.

Denim Bermuda Shorts

I recently got into long denim shorts myself and have become pretty obsessed. My favourite way to style them is with strappy sandals and a blazer.

Pleated Jeans

Our editor Anna is a big fan of this on-the-rise trend, which tells me it has some staying power.

Tie-Dye Denim

Tie-dye's presence on the A/W 19 runways suggests that the trend is not going away any time soon—meaning it's not too late to invest.

Cargo-Style Jeans

All you need to know here is that the Attico girls are backing cargo jeans, so we're backing cargo jeans.

Up next, trust Monikh—these are the only 3 new-in buys to see this week
