Her Campus’s 20 Favorite Denim Pieces

Denim is everywhere this summer season: on the beach, by the pool, out to dinner, in a bar, in your closet. I have to admit that denim is my best friend, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels this way. That’s why we dedicated this trendy list to anything and everything denim. Here are our favorite denim pieces right now:

Relive The 60s
Reincarnated from the ‘60s and ‘70s, the denim shirt is back and better than ever. There are so many ways to wear the jean shirt whether it’s layered with tons of jewelry or with a simple pair of white shorts for summer. You can find jean shirts for an extremely affordable price at Forever 21, or even your local Salvation Army or Goodwill. 

Forever 21 ($17.80)

Smart Stripes
Finding a unique and extra special pair of jeans personally feels like an accomplishment. I absolutely adore these extraordinary blue and white-striped cigarette-cut jeans. Wear them with heels to go out or just with a simple pair of flats.

Urban Outfitters ($58)

Oh So Flared
Celebrities like Annalynne McCord and Whitney Port have been seen this summer wearing the ‘70s-style denim flare jeans. Wear them with this season’s trendy platform sandal and head to the disco!

Free People ($108)

The Jegging
Looking for comfy denim?
The classic jean legging (affectionately dubbed the jegging) is the perfect option. Dress it up with a funky top and black pumps or down with your plain white tee and Converse.

Madewell ($95)

The Not So Mom Jacket
I used to think that denim jackets were designated for moms. But this season there are some really cute denim jackets for the trendy! Just keep in mind when wearing this trend; the same color jean on jean is NOT acceptable. Alternatively wear your denim jacket with a dress, skirt, or leggings.

Anthropologie ($128)

Summery Denim Skirt
Sometimes, the normal denim skirt can be drab. There are stylish ways that you can wear a denim skirt, like in this J.Crew outfit with a laidback sailor-striped sweater for fall.

J.Crew ($187)

Romper With A Denim Twist
The romper is the summer’s most stylish trend. There are so many ways you can accessorize the denim romper whether it’s with a fedora or a bundle of costume jewelry.

Nordstrom ($28.90)

Trench It Up
Looking for a fall jacket already and have a love for denim? This Old Navy jacket is absolutely perfect for you!

Old Navy ($34.94)

Denim Pleated Shorts
Looking for a replacement for your boring old shorts? The pleated denim short is a great alternative!

Gap ($54.95) 

Classic Vest
There are many ways that you can wear a denim vest. Whether it’s with a floral frock, a tee shirt and skirt, or even a long tunic, you will look absolutely fabulous!

Levi’s ($79.50)

Blast From The Past
As a child, my favorite pair of denim overalls were lime green. I’m definitely not suggesting that you go out to your nearest store to look out for green overalls. Overalls can definitely be a fashion risk, but if the trend is worn the right way it’s definitely doable.

Forever 21 ($29.80)

Fancy Denim
Looking for really cute shoes to attend a summer party or outdoor bar? These denim Sam Edelman shoes are super cute and comfy!

Sam Edelman ($139.97)

The Essential Purse
Denim is definitely strong enough to hold all of your essentials, so why not use it as an adorable purse? If you want to make your purse a little funkier decorate it with patches or even jewels.

Lucky Brand ($55.30)

Jumping For The Jumper
If you’re willing to take a fashion risk, the denim jumper is the perfect trend. Wear it with pumps to go out or with sandals to go shopping.

Urban Outfitters ($118)

The High-Waisted Look
High-waisted shorts are a classic, laidback trend especially in style this season. Wear them with your favorite crop top or a relaxed tee shirt.

Topshop ($56)

Denim Ballet Flats
If you aren’t into wearing heels, flats are a great option. These Bloch ballet flats are extremely snug and perfect for interning.

Bloch ($69.99)

Color Blocked
I predict the color blocked jean to be the next jean for pre-fall and fall fashion. These J Brand jeans are so much fun and come in other colors like yellow, pink, green, and purple.

J Brand ($176)

The Cut-Off
Denim cut-off shorts with the pockets hanging out are everywhere now. If you like the short-shorts look, these shorts are perfect for you!

Pac Sun ($42)

The Essential Denim Accessory
The denim belt is definitely an exciting addition to your closet that will look amazing with a cute floral summer frock.

Zimmerman ($150)

Denim Sweetheart Dress
I end the list with a sweetheart dress that I am absolutely obsessed with! It’s perfect for going to my favorite bar or out to a birthday dinner with friends.
