Summer time, and the living's easy. That is, until temperatures soar so unbearably high that getting dressed becomes a total chore. It's on those days that foolproof outfit formulas come in handy — and as it happens one major summer 2019 denim trend happens to be just that. Head-to toe-denim is the trend du jour, and thankfully Zara's new arrivals are packed with plenty of denim pieces to help you create the look with ease. Say so long to mornings spent staring sweatily into your closet, because this trend will help you keep your cool.
If teeny-tiny cutoff shorts are the only type of denim that comes to mind when you think of summer style, you're in for a surprise. While super-short denim shorts certainly have their place (at backyard parties and beachside picnics), this season there's so much more to choose from — just take one look at Zara's latest arrivals for proof.
And as if to answer your summer style prayers, the popular high-street store (along with many others) is making a case for denim-on-denim ensembles to make summer dressing easier than ever. The simple wardrobe staples turn statement-making when worn together with thoughtful accessories, and take a fraction of the time to put together. Save flowery mini-dresses or fussy blouses for another day, this is what you'll want to wear all season.
Pair distressed frayed-hem jeans, like Zara's $69.90 straight leg style, with a polished chambray denim shirt with feminine features like balloon sleeves and a petite collar. The $69.99 shirt gives sweet structure to the relaxed-fit denim, for a look that reads cool (even if the day is hot). Add summer's naked shoe trend to the mix to finish off the outfit with a modern feel.
Prefer breezy skirts on warm days? Pick Zara's tiered ruffle denim skirt, also $69.90, that's prairie-chic in all the right ways. Pair it with a long denim shirt worn unbuttoned over a simple white tank or tied at the waist to add some definition to the voluminous skirt.
When the hottest days of summer really hit, turn to truncated styles like this flirty denim mini dress, $49.90, to pair with sandals and golden stacked jewelry. Or, opt for head-to-toe white denim by pairing a bright white trucker jacket with skinny jeans in the same shade — it's a look that feels just as elevated as a dress for date nights this season.
