Surprise! Not one of them is jeans.
Perhaps the one biggest bummer about summertime is that your favorite pair of jeans, which you’ve likely lived in for the last, oh, eight months straight, aren’t comfortable anymore. Suddenly they’re too hot, too tight, and just completely wrong. Maybe you’re happy to fling them aside for the season, but if denim is a core part of your wardrobe (as it is for me), you might feel less like yourself than usual for your glaring lack of jean-clad-legs (and also your glaringly pale skin covering said legs, but that’s an issue for another time).
So, while you can obviously wear denim skirts, dresses, or jackets, denim accessories shouldn’t go unnoticed or unworn either. Denim skirts and dresses can feel precious, and jean jackets too literally ’90s; a hint of the indigo stuff on a cross-body bag or minimalist pair of sandals might just be the touch you need to stay grounded while your favorite pair of cropped flares are hibernating.
I love the embroidery on this bag and would wear it with a trench dress or slim chinos to keep it from going too boho.
