Styling Jeans in Spring & Summer

With spring/summer just around the corner, Ariat takes a look at how to style your favourite denim for the season. Find our guide to the best jeans in spring.

With spring upon us and summer just around the corner, it’s time to swap out your winter clothes and switch in your warm-weather clothing. But there are a few key pieces that can stay put all year round, and that includes denim; an all-weather wardrobe staple. One thing is for sure, how you style your denim is about to change. We’ve put together a guide to choosing the best jeans for spring and summer and how we’d style them for the ultimate sunny-weather outfit.

Our Top Picks: Best Jeans for Spring & Summer

The classic skinny fit

If you’re after a masterpiece in denim, the premium high rise skinny jeans are your next favourite pair. Made from luxurious 10oz premium Italian denim, we’re sure they will keep you comfortable even on warmer days. We recommend the darker Asmu ocean blue wash on days the wind brings a little chill, and the lighter Asmu Cameroon wash when the sun is shining brightly for the perfect summery look. We love these jeans with a pair of western ankle boots; for a classic look the Darlin western boot in burnt sugar is perfect; but for something a little extra on a balmy summer’s day, the Florence western boot, fit with floral patterns and fringing, is one of our favourites. Add a lightweight, flowy blouse in plain white cotton or light pastel for a refreshing finish.

The trending straight-leg

With a rise in popularity, straight leg jeans are arguably some of the best jeans for spring and summer. For a casual spring/summer look, the R.E.A.L mid-rise icon stackable straight leg jean is a winner. With a distressed finish for a relaxed look, they’re thoughtfully designed from performance stretch denim to give comfort and support, but also to hold their shape whilst flattering yours. To complete your casual spring/summer look, pair these jeans with a boat shoe, a summer classic, or our new super-lightweight Hilos. Watch out for these in the new spring/summer denim trends.

The iconic bootcut leg

Add an iconic style to your wardrobe with the bootcut jean, a trusted favourite. Not only are they timeless, but they elongate the leg elegantly. Our R.E.A.L high rise Daniela bootcut jeans are a summer must-have. The bold Tennessee blue wash make them vibrant and summery. We recommend pairing them with a brightly coloured tee and, of course, a pair of boots, for a simple but stylish look. We think the whiskey barrel colour of these Hazen western boots perfectly compliments the vibrant colour of the jeans. If you wanted to lean further into the western style, switch out the tee for a plaid shirt in a summer pink colour. The elegant silhouette of the boot cut jean means that they can be worn casually, as well as being dressed up for a summer evening with a lightweight blazer and a Chelsea boot in a light shade of suede.

The fun flared fit

Sometimes, summer denim should be a little more fun. So why not try a flared fit. The fashion-forward R.E.A.L high rise Doba flare jean, with statement reverse denim detailed pockets, paired with an equally fun, detailed leather belt, are perfect for warm weekends. If you’re after a lighter wash that pairs perfectly with summery frills and florals then we recommend the Perfect Rise Milli Trouser Jean. This comfortable denim jean will quickly become your everyday favourite – pair it with a lightweight blouse for a feminine summer outfit that you’ll reach for again and again. For the perfect summer festival outfit, pair some flared jeans with a fringed waistcoat for an outfit that’s as fun as the festival. Add some bold patterned or vibrant coloured western boots to your denim in summer to make even more of a statement – for example, the contrasting Futurity Colt Western Boot. 

At Ariat, we’re all about high-quality jeans that look stylish and elegant. But we’re also all about comfort. The clever stretch features of our denim jeans help keep you comfortable all day long. Make sure you find the perfect fit for you , so your jeans last you a lifetime.
