The power and possibility that lies in a pair of jeans is endless. They are, point blank, the backbone of a wardrobe. If you think I'm being dramatic, just think of all the outfits you can make with fantastic fitting jeans. A good pair can take you from running errands in sneakers and a tee to a night out in heels and a stylish top. The styles may change, but jeans are forever. 

Currently, light-wash denim is everywhere. And if you haven't snagged a pair yet, this upcoming spring is the time to do so, because light jeans and warm weather just make sense. From classic button-downs to corsets to tees, all the hottest styles for spring 2022 pair perfectly with light-wash jeans. Think bright colors and playful patterns, casual crops, and structured tops. Live a little and try denim on denim—with light-wash jeans as your base, you can't go wrong. For some inspiration on how to wear light-wash jeans this spring, I rounded up the best styles and options to nail the casual-cool look.
