Yes, you CAN wear denim in summer and stay cool!

Summer denim

By Andrea

It’s hard-wearing, classic, and has an irreplaceable relaxed vibe, so it’s not wonder denim is our go-to fabric when we’re mucking around with our kids. Yet in the summer months it’s easy to reach for fabrics like cotton or linen to ensure we keep cool while we’re keeping our cool through the inevitable heat-wave induced kiddie meltdowns.

But there’s no need to eschew denim altogether when the temps start to rise.



Here’s 3 hot denim looks that’ll keep you cool:


Cool summer denim



Coolmax jeans

Love this innovation in denim made with special fibres that draw moisture away from your body to keep you cool and dry. Available at Jeanswest in their best-selling styles: Super Skinny, Slim Straight, Slim Bootcut, Curve Embracer and a slim straight leg for the guys, for around $90. I’m loving the Super Skinny Coolmax jean, which are cut exactly like favourite black coated denims featured in this post.
