Seasons may come and go but classic denim is evergreen! Whether you live on the East Coast, West Coast or no coast at all, figuring out what to wear between Summer and Fall can feel like a bit of a challenge. Never fear! Even in these in-between periods when it seems impossible to figure out what to wear, a pair of timeless jeans makes getting dressed for even the most unpredictable weather fun and easy. We know that expressing your style through fashion is personal, but it never hurts to get a little outside inspiration! Read on for chic trends that are perfect for seamlessly transitioning your wardrobe from Summer to Fall.
Add a Little Flare to Your Style
The seventies are back in fashion, so don’t be afraid to add a little flare to your style! Flare jeans give you legs for days and add a fun touch to any outfit. Pair these leg-lengthening jeans with your favorite crop top on hotter days and lean into the 70’s aesthetic with a colorful, lightweight sweater or long sleeve blouse for breezier nights. Looking for fashionable tops to pair with your flare? We love Kin by Kristine’s Black Tie Front Top ($38.95) and Diarrablu’s Aida Top in Zari Brown ($135).
Double Denim Dare You
Matching sets are always in! Want to look sophisticated without trying too hard? We double denim dare you to pair a classic denim jacket with ultra-comfortable and stylish jeans. Celebs from Bing Crosby, who infamously coined the term “Canadian Tuxedo” in 1951, to Britney Spears and Justin Timperlake, who famously wore matching denim sets to the 2001 AMA awards, prove the staying power of an iconic denim-on-denim moment. Keep the "Canadian Tuxedo" extra cool by styling it with Summersalt’s stylish and simple Long Sleeve Day to Night Bodysuit ($55) and Mejuri’s Bold Link Chain Necklace ($90).
All Buttoned Up
Button-down jackets are the epitome of casual style with an elevated touch! Whether you button it up or wear it open, for those cooler nights between Summer and Fall, cozy up in a fashionable denim jacket that will live in your closet forever. A good denim jacket will never go out of style! For an elevated, but minimalistic look pair your favorite jean jacket with Mien Studios’ Lakeside Wide Leg Jumpsuit in Dark Moss ($128). Want to keep it cozy and casual? Layer your jean jacket over And I Get Dressed’s Self Love Crew Sweatshirt ($49.90).
Less is More
Understated fashion should never be overlooked! There is nothing cleaner or sleeker than an elegant pair of your favorite skinny jeans paired with a simple tank top and accessories - maybe your favorite kitten heels and effortless gold hoops. Don’t underestimate the aesthetic impact of minimalism! We recommend styling these sleek skinnies with RE ONA’s Turtleneck Sleeveless Top in Ivory ($65) and ByChari’s Sade Baby Hoops in Gold ($50).
We’re loosening up! Loose fitting jeans are everywhere this Summer and will continue to be trendy going into Fall. While we’re always partial to a sleek skinny, looser fitting denim can give your look a laid-back edge. Pair them with a bodysuit for a sleek look or throw on your favorite cropped hoodie and lean into relaxed and fashion-forward street style. On the market for a great bodysuit? Girlfriend’s Copper Marlow High Neck Bodysuit ($58) perfectly pairs with our denim joggers. Keeping it cool and casual? We love Stuzo Clothing’s Classic Crown Hoodie Crop ($50) and Humans Before Handles’ Bawd Earrings ($45).
Time to Split!
Time to split -split hems that is! A split hem adds a fun twist to classic denim and works its magic to elongate your legs. Pair these jeans with your favorite heels and accessories for an instantly elevated look with a touch of casual cool. Need a little extra inspiration? We think these jeans would pair well with JW Pei’s Gabby Bag in Ivory ($89), Zou Xou’s Delfina Sandal in Black ($160) and Oma The Label’s Chi Earrings ($79).
