It’s scorching heat outside, and you’re in no mood to wear a dress (probably it’s a bit too windy) or shorts either. All you want is to slip into your favorite pair of jeans because it’s hard not to love them! But you ask yourself what if it gets too hot and how do I pull off an effortless look? JCPenney is here to help you with that. We bring you all the tricks on how to beat the heat and still look great. Check out our vast collection of jeans for both men and women that will have you look perfect even during the hottest days. On that note, at the end of the blog, we have a few bonus hacks on how to save your jeans.
Brave the Heat
There are a few things to keep in mind while you pick jeans for summer. Selecting loose silhouette jeans over skinny and lighter material is the key. Go for mom or boyfriend jeans. They may not be as flattering as skinny jeans but are ideal during summer as it’s not super tight. The trick with these jeans is to team with an elegant top. For instance, combine the jeans with an off-shoulder top for a relaxed-yet-romantic vibe, or go for a vibrant printed top for a sleek fashion statement. Need a foolproof summer outfit idea? Combine your jeans with a crisp white shirt and add a jacket if needed. It’s both office and errand-friendly.
Keeping it Light and Breezy
Similar rules apply to men as well. Ditch the skinny-fitted jeans. Go for relaxed jeans for a sweat-free summer. Throw in a little vintage vibe with a quirky printed shirt. For a laid-back classic look, fold up the shirt halfway through your arms and complete the look with white sneakers. Other than the obvious choice of relaxed jeans, you could go for distressed jeans. You either pick a pair and wear them until they’re dotted with patches or pick a new distressed pair. They are on-trend and will exude a super-cool vibe. For those who want to make a statement, go off-color with white jeans. They don’t attract much heat and can go well with both casual shirts and tees.
You love your jeans so much that you wear them all the time. All that wearing, however, causes them to wear out, and now you’re worried you’ve got to say goodbye. The good news is that the right denim hacks will keep you wearing those jeans for much longer.
- It may sound strange, but denim does not need to be washed as frequently as your other clothes. You can wash your jeans as little as twice a year. Leaving more time between washings will preserve the shape and integrity of the fabric.
- Turn them inside out to keep the dye from fading and wash them on the cold cycle. You can buy special detergents for cold washes. Once they’re clean, hang them to dry. The dryer can be rough on clothes and wear them out faster.
- Because you don’t want to wash your jeans as often, you might need other ways to remove stains. That’s where stain stick comes in. Stain pens can take care of small issues without requiring a wash. If the stain is stubborn, try using a stain gel with a brush before washing the jeans on cold.
If you treat your jeans right when they’re new and use a few of these denim hacks, you can keep wearing them for many years to come. Show us your unique summer look by tagging us at #AllAtJCP. Then, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see if you are featured.
