Summer Denim: Our 5 Favorite Pairs and How to Wear Them

There’s an art to pairing the right jeans with the right occasion — and to pairing them with the right sandal or heel. It all depends on the weight, wash, and cut of the denim, and making counterintuitive choices, such as pairing a casual cut and faded wash with a bright-red stiletto. That’s why we took our top five favorite jeans to wear this summer and made outfits to serve as a cheat sheet for packing and dressing with weekends or evenings in mind. Jeans start at a cool $69.95 and sandals at $59.90, so there’s something here for everybody. Click through our slideshow to see how we’ll be wearing each pair this season.
