Casual, comfortable, cool; we like to wear denim all over--not just limited to our jeans. For spring and summer, denim is taking even bigger risks showing up in dresses, vests, and all kinds of washes. Stepping away from the traditional jean shorts and skinny jeans that have always served as spring and summer staples for those hot days and breezy nights, denim is stitching itself into some of the most exciting and most fashionable fashion must-haves for the upcoming season. We can't wait to get our denim on.

For a fun and flirty look that is as conservative as it is daring, we love this Asos Cut Out Back Denim Dress
. It's perfect for a day at the park with friends or paired with cowboy boots for a long night of singing and dancing at your favorite summer music festival. We love this piece not only for it's versatility (we can wear it to work, too!) but also because it's budget friendly for the rest of us working girls!
Banana Republic Soft-Wash Denim Shirt

Whoever said dark denim wasn't in, clearly has never set their eyes on this Soft-Washed denim
beauty by Banana Republic. One of the reasons dark denim has become such a style staple is that it pairs so well with so many different pieces. Try it with a floral skirt, white jean shorts, or wear it over a maxi dress for a bohemian-chic look. Paired with colored jeans (like reds, tangerines, and greens that are huge this season) make this a go-to wardrobe staple for any occasion!

Confession: sometimes rompers can be totally intimidating but finding your style is all about taking risks and trying new things, right? Right. Try out this sweetheart style by Free People. Not only is this piece super cute, it's great to have on hand for whatever our crazy summers might call for! Like the picture shows, you can style this denim with a colored, patterned button-up underneath or take a simpler approach and just wear it with a cropped - or long - sweater that flatters your figure. Adorn with lots of jewels and get ready to show off your flawless fashion taste!
Levi's Trucker Vest in Natural

Just because it's denim doesn't mean it has to be blue. Even if you're used to thinking that way, stop now and explore a whole new world where indigo-dyed denim isn't the end all, be all. This natural Levi's vest
is the absolute best accessory to wear this summer. No sweaty sleeves. Woo hoo! We love it because you can still wear a white top underneath without feeling washed out, plus it pairs with other denim shades effortlessly. Dress down your sundress with a denim vest or add a bit of rugged style to your casual look. Grab it as you're walking out the door or tuck it in your bag at the beginning of a hot night. No matter what, ladies, you can't go wrong!

Finally, a classic denim jacket. Ah, the ultimate summer staple. You knew this one was coming, right? Good, because we aren't the kind to disappoint. Not enough can be said about a good denim jacket, like this 'Dream Catcher' style by Sanctuary
. So, instead of going on and on about how important it is to have one for the upcoming season, how versatile it is, or how with tons of options you can find the perfect jacket for your personal style...we've just got a few simple words for you: Go. Get. One. And be a happy girl!
