Denim Jeans have been a staple in fashion since they were invented as durable workers clothes in the 1970’s. They were glamorized as a symbol of rebellion in the 50’s, but were easily reintroduced into society within the next 20 years. Now, people of all ages, sizes, ethnicity and backgrounds wear jeans. People wear skinny, bootleg, girlfriend, boyfriend, straight leg, flair, bell-bottom, ankle jeans, jeans shorts, relaxed, cuffed, high rise or low rise. The possibilities with good denim are nearly endless!
As of recently, a new trend in denim has been re-emerging. Last year it was all about bringing the 80’s look back, or sticking tight to your ripped jeans layered over fishnet tights, but it seems that this summer people are rocking a more relaxed look.
Light colors tend to be a recurring theme throughout the summer. Thinner material in lighter colors that doesn’t warm your body to dangerous temperatures are necessary during the warmer months.
Jeans For Men
Gap’s Wearlight Skinny Jeans with Gapflex are the perfect combination of pale, artfully worn and distressed. They’re multi-functional and can be worn with anything. Besides that, they do often tend to look better with lighter colors. This is a positive aspect, as it encourages the wearer to dress in materials and colors that are better for the heat. Look summery, feel summery.
If you want a little more edge to your summer pick, Gap also has Wearlight Destructed Slims. These have that same distressed, summery look, with the added style benefit of a few tears along the knees and thigh. In other words; they are fantastic for this season!
Jeans For Women
Boyfriend style is back. The idea of boyfriend jeans is that they’re worn a little loose, slouchy and relaxed. While they have a very chic vibe to them, they seem to be built completely for your comfort! Hence, you are 100x more likely to find your perfect fit.
The Boyfriend style is usually mid-rise and folded to reach ankle length. They therefore allow your best range of movement and a feeling of freedom. A perfect pair for this season is GAP’s Mid Rise Best Girlfriend Jeans. They are relaxed through hip and thigh but slightly tapered at the ankle for the perfect comfortable and effortlessly beautiful look that everyone aspires to when the sun is out.
