Denim will always be a perennial staple, with the classic fabrication effortlessly paired with just about anything in our wardrobes. But while many of us might usually reserve our favourite denim cuts for when the weather is a little more chill, that doesn’t mean we have to immediately store it away when the temperature begins to rise.

Instead, there are plenty of ways to incorporate denim into our summer season rotation. Below, shop our edit of the key trends to put on your radar ahead of the warm weather, including an array of reinvigorated silhouettes that take playful nods from vintage pieces, to seamless cut-offs and lighter hues.

Borrowed straight from the men’s go-to handbook, denim in longer cuts is making a major comeback this season. Whether slim fitted with rips or baggy and flared, the Boyfriend Cut short is here to stay, and it’s perfect paired back with your favourite summer singlet or dressed up with a sleek and sophisticated blazer.

Denim boiler suits seem to be the trend that’ll never fade, and this season’s fits are a far cry from the Britney and Justin era of double denim. Opt for elevated silhouettes that take effortless cues from the ‘70s, or go for a baggier fit that’s ideal from making your way from the beach to the bar.

The ‘90s are back and in a big way. Trends from days gone by have dominated just about every stratosphere of the fashion world recently, with designer labels and local favourites dipping into the archives to create reinvigorated staples—just like the classic denim dress, whether in signature stonewashed blue or on-trend chocolate hues.

While you can never go wrong with your trusty blue denim, summer definitely lends itself to experimenting with lighter shades, especially when it comes to our denim rotations. From crisp whites to beige two-tones, white denim is the perfect way to keep your warm weather wardrobe cool and casual.
