6 Denim Trends That Celebs Can’t Stop Wearing This Summer

If you asked any editor on the PureWow team what item of clothing they wear most often, the general consensus would be something denim-related. We constantly wear jeans to work, we reach for a denim jacket on the weekends and love a jean skirt for a night out. Luckily, there are plenty of different washes and cuts of each style to keep us interested. And thanks to our favorite A-listers, the inspo is never-ending. Here are six seen-on-celeb styles we’re loving for summer.

6 Summer Outfit Formulas We’re Stealing from Amal Clooney

Oversize Denim Jacket

This is possibly the easiest trend to pull off, ever. Just pop an almost-too-big denim jacket over literally anything (including your workout gear) for instant cool-girl appeal, just like Lucy Hale.

Why wear one wash when you can wear two? Cat Deeley rocks the colorblock trend in slimming vertical lines.

Big & Baggy

Finally, a trend for those of you who are anti-skinny jeans. It’s like wide-leg and straight-leg jeans had a baby (but in the best way possible).

Bermuda Shorts

Who wears short shorts? Not Olivia Culpo (or half of Hollywood, TBH). Save your Daisy Dukes for the beach and slip into a pair of long denim shorts for everything else, from work to brunch.

Still can’t bear to give up your skinnies? Consider the straight-leg look (à la Yara Shahidi), which is the gateway to a whole new world of denim. Not only is it slimming, but you’ll also love the slightly more relaxed feel—especially on scorching hot summer days.

Get the look: Levi’s ($70); Topshop ($75); MSGM ($175)

Cropped Kick-flare

More subtle than the retro ‘70s throwback, this baby flare is every short girl’s dream (no dragging hems!). Kate Bosworth wears hers with ankle boots, but they’re equally flattering with lace-up sandals and mules.

Get the look: Wit & Wisdom ($68); J Brand ($228); AG ($235)
