Here’s How to Rock Denim Like a Champion All Summer Long

Indigo should not be a synonym for jeans. The dark blue colour, which has been popular for so long thanks to thick selvedge denim, is the last thing you want to wear on a scorching hot summer day.

Luckily, a wave of washed denim is on the way — whether patchworked together like Levi’s new limited-edition Celebration trucker jacket, or in a uniform wash like this pair of jeans by Bugatti. We’re not saying to get rid of your broken-in, well-loved dark jeans; just add something lighter into your rotation. If nothing else, your sweat glands will thank us.
