Summer’s Denim Must-Have Isn’t What You Think


Come summertime, we live in our tried-and-true cutoffs. There’s just something about the season’s laissez-faire attitude that makes the denim mainstay feel ideal for any occasion. (Our inner monologue on the matter goes something like, “Beach? Yes. BBQ? Always. Out dancing on vacation? With a pair of heels, why not?”) But if you’re looking forward to giving your shorts a rest, enter the style’s long-lost sister. We’re of course referring to the jean skirt, which is back with a vengeance in a number of mini and pencil silhouettes that feel so very cool and of the moment. From luxe designer interpretations to wallet-friendly high-street buys, here are 10 takes on the trend to suit any budget.
