10 Dad Jean Outfits to Try This Spring

As we pointed out earlier this year, dad jeans are the latest wave of “normal” dressing to sweep the fashion industry. So what exactly are dad jeans? Think light and loose denim with a very relaxed and ’90s vibe. Still unclear? Don’t sweat it. Today we’re sharing not only where to buy the latest denim trend but also how to style the laid-back jean style.

From lightweight dusters and ruffled blouses to an oversize blazer and a simple T-shirt, there’s really no wrong way to style dad jeans. We particularly are into the idea of wearing the style with statement heels and a basic tee for a balanced yet fresh day-to-night look. Ahead you’ll find 10 fresh denim outfit ideas and our favorite selection of dad jeans at the end.
