The Only Denim Trends You Should Spend Money on This Summer

Seeing as summer is pretty much in full swing at this point, it’s time to get serious about what you’re going to wear and, of course, buy. As such, you may have noticed a plethora of guides on the subject right here on Who What Wear, covering everything from swimwear to vacation style to the must-know prints to highly specific seasonal colors and more. And unless you plan on sticking with the basics (think plain jean jackets, skinny jeans, or classic cutoffs), there’s much to know about the season’s must-have denim trends as well.

So what’s worth buying in the denim world right now? If you ask me, the below five categories stand out from the pack—by a landslide. From on-the-rise trends our editors have a hunch about to established ones we know will be sticking around a while longer, just keep scrolling to see and shop them all.

Loose-Fit Jeans

One of those rare instances in which a trend is actually comfortable, so we're not asking questions here.

Denim Bermuda Shorts

I recently got into long denim shorts myself and have become pretty obsessed. My favorite way to style them is with strappy sandals and a blazer.

Pleated Jeans

Our editor Anna is a big fan of this on-the-rise trend, which tells me it has some staying power.

Tie-Dye Denim

Tie-dye's presence on the F/W 19 runways suggests that the trend is not going away any time soon—meaning it's not too late to invest.

Cargo-Style Jeans

All you need to know here is that the Attico girls are backing cargo jeans, so we're backing cargo jeans.
