Although we love getting gussied up as much as the next gal, our best ensembles are often the ones that don't take much thought—a.k.a. jeans and a tee. And while we've got our denim dresses, shorts, and rompers all set for the season, sometimes it's so satisfying to have a plain-and-simple pair of jeans be our main squeeze. Thankfully, designers have made our lives extra easy by upgrading the wardrobe essential from basic to ballsy, and we're pretty stoked on the results.
Honestly, with so many amazing denim offerings for summer, it's hard to pick a fave. Think about it: We'll never ditch our steadfast staples like the bootcut and the boyfriend because, let's face it, what else is there to wear to Whole Foods? But, obviously, we're also always game to pepper in some pizzazz. Florals, neons, and unexpected patterns — bring 'em on! As any L.A. resident knows, a girl's got to have options. And that's where we come in. We've done the work for you and rounded up a solid 20 must-have jean styles that will keep you looking cool this season…even if it's approaching 90 degrees and the A/C is going haywire. Just pick a fave (or five), add a T-shirt, and you'll be good to go.
