The Perfect Summer Jeans Shopping Guide

New York rule #1: even on the hottest summer days, jeans are not only totally acceptable but actually a go-to wardrobe choice. I got to thinking about the perfect summer denim this past weekend and here's how I picture my perfect pair of denim for May-August: High-waisted, light-wash, and slightly distressed. I've personally been loving this pair from DL 1961 that perfectly encompass the ideal I just described. Seriously, I've worn them several days in a row. Once you have that perfect denim base, the outfits come easily. You can pair them with a crop top (like this one from Tobi), a plain white T-shirt, or even a long-sleeve mesh top for an edgier feel. I did the hard work for you and went to some of my favorite websites to round up the best jeans to take you through the summer months. I hope you find a pair that is perfect for you!
