No lie, we love clean cut skinny jeans and crisp, tailored raw denim… but when it comes to summer living in NYC, we’re always down for a little extra AC in the jeans department. Distressed denim adds edge to any look, whether in light wash boyfriend style or in a punk-inspired black skinny cut. Here are some our favorite pairs of distressed jeans this summer.
What to wear, what to wear? Whether we’re dressing up for a day at work or a weekend of relaxing, we love seeing what A-list denim lovers are wearing, like the ever-stylish Jessica Alba and the effortlessly beautiful Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. We’re turning to our favorite celebrities for summer styling trends. Check out these celebrity denim trends and get inspired!

There are endless ways to stay cool and look hot in denim this summer, and we took the liberty of picking a few out for ya.

Update your denim look this summer with a cuffing technique you may not have tried yet: the single fold cuff. Honestly WTF spotted this trend everywhere around the world, but it’s making waves in NYC as women become more adventurous and stray from the skinny jean trend. This cuff works best on wider leg pants, whether stovepipe style or boyfriend. Will you be trying it?

Rihanna is featured on the March issue of Vogue—the same one that has a very innovative new kind of ad placed in it by Gap. She’s looking carefree and spirited in Louis Vuitton boyfriend jeans (click for a similar pair) and a sheer black beaded top, along with neutral-hued makeup and a choppy short hairstyle. We’re digging it in comparison to her usual less jovial appearance. What do you think?
