These Lightweight Jeans Are the Perfect Pants for Summer

Pair these with your favorite sandals and a T-shirt for a casual summer look!

One of my favorite things about fall is when the weather gets cool enough for me to wear my favorite jeans again. As someone who doesn’t feel very comfortable in shorts, I mostly spend the summer in long, loose dresses — but sometimes I wish I had a pair of lightweight jeans that I could pair with T-shirts and blouses on hot days.

That’s why I was excited to see that Everlane has a lightweight jeans option they call The Summer Jean ($68).” These ultra-soft, straight-legged jeans are designed to feel like they’ve already been broken in — loose and easy-to-wear, just like your favorite well-worn pair of jeans. Perfect for those muggy days when regular jeans are out of the question!

Available in a washed-out, vintage light blue, a distressed indigo wash, gray, or white, these jeans are made with loosely-woven organic denim and are just slouchy enough to look casual, not sloppy (the non-stretch fabric helps with that). Plus, they’re ankle-length, so they’ll look great with summer sandals or white sneakers.

“So comfortable!” raves one reviewer. “I’ve been looking for jeans that are not stretchy like leggings, and a little more relaxed. These fit the bill and already feel worn in, but also appear to be long-lasting denim. I reach for these to wear every day now.”

If you’ve been looking for a pair of lightweight jeans that you can wear all year long — even in summer — you can’t go wrong with these Everlane jeans!
