Summer is in full swing, which means you’re probably opting for cooler ensembles like t-shirts and shorts. We can bet that you’ve started to say goodbye to your trusty collection of denim, with your black jeans now collecting dust at the back of your wardrobe. Well, we’re here to tell you that denim might have a place in the summer season after all. When it comes to men’s denim, it can be very versatile and when worn properly, can be a cool and stylish answer to summer fashion. So, how do you pull off denim this summer? Here we take a look at some key pieces that will allow you to continue wearing your reliable denim styles.

Buy a decent pair of denim shorts

The best alternative to jeans if you’re out in the sunshine or even on holiday, denim shorts are easy to dress up or down depending n the occasion. For example, pair with a short sleeve shirt and loafers for smart evening attire, or keep it simple with a t-shirt and trainers for a casual look. Whether you’re heading to the bar or the beach, a pair of denim shorts can come in really handy.

To make sure they’re ideal for the summer season, consider buying a pair of men’s ripped denim shorts. Keeping you cool as well as stylish, ripped shorts instantly give that summer lift to your look. Opt for classic blue or look for light shades like white or sand.

Keep a pair of jeans handy

Jeans are a staple throughout the year and they’re a handy style to have around, even when the sun is shining. We recommend having a summer pair of jeans to hand; in other words, keep your black jeans in the drawer and pull out those blue or white ones!

The heat might put you off wearing jeans but if you’re heading to an evening event, or the weather is looking a little hit and miss, your faithful pair of jeans are ideal. Perfect for cooler evenings, consider details like distressed patches that can act as breathing room for your legs if needs be.

Take a back-up layer

Don’t forget that even in the summer it can still have cooler spells; if you’re in the UK, you will probably still see rain at some point! For this reason, keep a denim jacket or denim shirt to hand; they can act as a perfect second layer if necessary.

Wear the denim shirt open over your t-shirt or keep your denim jacket over your shoulder for when the weather takes a turn. If you do it right, you might even just pull off double denim!
