The heat is rising, but if you think shorts are the easy, go-to bottom this season, think again!
We get it, destroyed skinny jeans rule. They’re pretty much a staple nowadays. But this spring and summer, change it up. We’re making the bold declaration that skin-tight jeans are out. Straight legs and slight flares are in. Opt for denim in a more relaxed fit while you laze beneath the sun or head for the nearest barbecue.
Not ready to fully divorce from skinny jeans? That’s OK! Try a steady cropped style. The frayed ends make for a casual, sharp outfit.
Ready to have some fun? A mid-rise cropped trouser is perfect for work and play. Wear it for a hot night out or even to the office for a versatile, classic look.
Are you still skeptical about going against the (skinny) grain? Allow Victoria Beckham to convince you. Her collection showcases looks that ooze freedom, fun and play. A light wash, as seen above, is great for brighter, warmer months. Take them to the pool or to an after party.

Give your ankles some air with patched, colorful denim. They’re a super fun—and pretty!—addition to any closet.
If you’re going with flare, be fearless and go all the way! A medium-wash flare hits a hip, fresh note. Go casual or high-style. Either way, you’ll rock it.
A straight cut deserves to have some fun, too. A center-seam elongates your legs and creates a great point-of-interest. If you feel really daring, go for an all-denim outfit.
