When it comes to summer denim essentials, we immediately think of our favorite cut-off shorts. But even we have to admit, as tempting as it is to wear those babies daily, it’s better to mix up your style and throw some variation into the mix. One stop at Nasty Gal proved us right. 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.

When it comes to completing (or growing, if you never plan to “complete” it, as in our case!) a denim wardrobe, it’s best to think outside of the jean. Denim and chambray are two amazing fabrics that can create not only classic jean silhouettes, but must-have pieces like denim vests, dresses, and even shoes. Some of our favorite denim pieces on the market right now, aren’t jeans at all! Check out these 9 denim essentials below, and prepare to amp up your denim game this week.

We’re loving destroyed denim this year, and it seems our options are more broad than ever. No longer are only cut-off shorts and boyfriend jeans getting the scissor and razor treatment before they land in stores, but now denim skirts, vests, and other styles are seeing some deliberate on-trend damage too. Shop some of our favorite styles of destroyed denim below.

3.1 Phillip Lim took tailored denim to a whole new level with a new capsule collection of denim separates. The set includes cropped jackets, tailored blazers, ankle-length pants, and a smart-looking denim pencil skirt to name a few. The styles are 12 in total and range from $195 to $895. The style of the shoot lets the denim shine in full, with the model’s face obscured by shades, cropped out, or turned away from the lens. For us, this is a refreshing return to what matters: our favorite textile.
See the full collection below.

Ahh summer. The season of wild flowers, picnics and wearing explosions of botanical floral prints all over the place. Topshop has released a couple of super cute options for the flower-and-denim loving style maven this season: a button down chambray collared short-sleeved top and a matching flared denim mini-skirt. Pair each with contrasting separates or wear them together to make a bold statement. A statement that, without question, enforces your love of floral print and blue jeans.

We’re crushing hard on Moscow style blogger and personal shopper Alexandra Osina (of Styled By Alexandra) ‘s fall denim look right now. She mixes denim shorts, jackets, and skirts with unexpected pieces and to create quirky, flirty autumn ensembles that get awesome marks across the board. Check out her recent outfits below and get a quick lesson in her unique approach to denim styling.
The look: Sweater with medium-above-the-knee denim skirt
Where to wear it: Cute look for the office and a meeting over coffee with a client.
Tip: Hem lengths are key in pulling this off. The skirt should fall above the knees (but no shorter) and the sweater should fall just below the waistline (but not shorter). The fullness of the skirt keeps things casual and chic.
The Look: Denim sequined shorts with denim workshirt & tights
Where to wear it: A great look for shopping and hanging out with friends.
Tip: Switch the playful coat for a sharp blazer for a night-friendly look.
The Look: Denim workshirt over flirty lace dress and denim leggings
Where to wear it: Perfect for date night!
Tip: When the weather gets colder, mix in a faux-fur stole and metallic jewelry.

While resort season is generally known for clothing conducive to poolside lounging and exotic vacations, when denim is involved it tends to be in the form of super wear-able styles and a dominance of light wash. We also saw some trends pop up, like wide legs and printed boyfriend jeans. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite blue jean cameos in the resort 2013 collections.
