YES WAY, GETAWAY: TIPS & TRICKS FROM OUR JET-SETTING FRIENDS

How To: Style Denim for Spring & Summer

You don’t need us to tell you that denim is a 365 thing and maybe even a 24/7 thing because we have actually been known to fall asleep in it (though we probably don’t recommend it). But despite its perennial appeal, there are some things that can peg a pair of jeans to a specific season, and when it comes to summer, that’s where a lot of the fun lies. Contrasting panels, exaggerated silhouettes, exposed hardware…the pieces that have been catching our eyes incorporate a sense of whimsy and F-U-N because, well, summer.
