Summer Denim

Scout Sixteen - Nordstrom Men's Denim

I love spring and fall in the City… but you can’t beat the summer. All of my favorite restaurants open their outdoor seating, the rosé is flowing, and (best of all) everyone is just happy to soak up the sun! Typically, my summer uniform is a tank top and printed shorts but that isn’t always an appropriate look when I’m running around to meetings.

This is where “summer denim” comes into the picture. I’m talking light, breathable, and wear-em-all-season summer denim. My personal favorite pair is from A.P.C. – I recently picked up a few new pairs at Nordstrom and couldn’t pass up this fit. (If you didn’t know, Nordstrom has a pretty epic selection of men’s denim right now and you’d be a fool to miss out!) Anyway, this fit is just spectacular – slim but not too tight and, most importantly, the weave isn’t terribly taut so my legs can breathe a bit… an important factor when you’re fighting off the wicked New York City heat.

I’ve linked to a few of my favorite pairs and brands for summer denim below – you can also hop on over to to snag an even wider selection! Let me know which brands are your go-to’s for summer, I’m keen to check them out!
