The season’s must-have denim from head to toe.

“Crops—no matter what fit—define the silhouette of the season. As inseams have moved up, so have the rises. We’ve had a lot of fun playing around with a few homemade concepts including irregular inseams from front to back as well as undone hems that show contrasting wash tones.” —Tim Kaeding, Mother co‑founder and designer

In Stitches

“Embroidery is a big trend. I love how it can update a denim jacket and make it personalized.”—Paige Adams-Geller, Paige co‑founder and creative director

“White denim for summer is an absolute must-have, but can be tricky to wear… It should be flattering and lived-in. We couldn’t find a white denim fabric that we liked so we worked closely with a mill in Italy to create our own—exclusive to AMO.” —Kelly Urban and Misty Zollars, AMO Denim founders and designers

Unfinished Business

“The raw-edge denim trend brings what is generally a more structured fabric into the street style we are all obsessing over right now. The grittiness of the relaxed ’90s style, transcending into the fabric most of us can’t live without, gives our feel-good staple an edge.” —Candice Fragis, Farfetch’s buying and merchandising director

“The flight suit is the ultimate no-fuss summer must-have. It is a sophisticated style with a casual, cool look.” —Catherine Ryu, Citizens of Humanity creative director

Artistic Flare

“I love flared jeans because they elongate the legs. Wear them with a pair of wedges and a bohemian blouse or a simple T-shirt and you’re set for summer.” —Elyse Walker, fashion director of FORWARD by Elyse Walker
