Summer Denim Looks..... From 30 Degrees to 5 Degrees


Living down under and having an international audience can be a wee bit baffling when it comes to seasons. As many of you lovely Europeans and American's are excitedly whipping out your swimwear, the southern regions of where I live are covered in snow. Confusing? Yes-sir-ree!

Although I'm currently a Southern Hemisphere-dweller, June will always equate to me with the start of Summer. I shall always be a Brit chic at heart! Plus: I live in the tropics, so, from a British point of view, it's always summer.

Whether in good old Blighty or here in Aus, the denim trend rules, with 70s shapes and ripped boyfriend jeans winning the stakes alike. So, wherever you may be, and whether it's snowy or sweaty, you can do denim and here's how....

This is how to wear denim at 30, 25, 20, 15, 10 and 5 degrees (Celsius that is!)


 30 Degrees
Woah... you live in a Scorcher? You're probably reading this thinking 'gosh... denim sounds super sweaty in this oven-like weather', but stop: chambray time! Chambray is such a breezier, lighter alternative to denim, but still has that 'denimy' sort of look. Boo-ya!

May I suggest a flowy, chambray dress paired with sandals?

Or perhaps a long-line chambray button-up vest used as a cute bikini coverup?

25 Degrees 
Mmmmm... this.. weather is bliss, paradise...ah! Embrace that beautiful sunshine and new found tan full-throttle, with the perfect pair of distressed denim shorts. 

Keep the look classy with a feminine off-the-shoulder blouse.

Or tuck in a wrap-around top.

 20 Degrees
Ok.. I'm not gonna lie, I'm actually freezing my butt off when it's 25 degrees; but, once again, I'm used to tropical climates. For most people, 20 degrees is temperate.

Is it just me or is there something so chic about a denim shirt tucked into a flared midi skirt? It's totally warm enough for that bit of bare leg too!

Or switch it around and tuck a mono-colour shirt into a denim skater skirt.

15 Degrees
Ok, so this is that bizarre temperature that some of us may be shivering in, but some may be like 'ah... it's so warm.' Ahhh the British! This midi temperature calls for a cover-up, and a full-sleeved all-over denim look is enough to keep off the chill!

Try simple denim separates to hit the double denim trend bang on the head.

Or if you're feeling experimental opt for an industrial-style all-in-one jumpsuit.

 10 Degrees
Brrrr, it's a bit chilly outside. Although it's not exactly snowing, you don't want to skimp down on layers. So, let's get snug!

Ripped slim-fit jeans and oversized roll-neck jumpers make a warmly refreshing combination. Hint: If it's extra chilly, layer on long-sleeved tees and leggings underneath.

Still chilly? Throw on a blanket coat. Oh so chic...

5 Degrees
Hello Southern Aussie sisters; hope you're not turning into ice cubes. How do you melt ice? By looking hot! **Cringe** Layering is the key to perfect cold weather style, and denim basics create the perfect canvas for throwing together something wonderful.

Keep it textured! Start with a basic long sleeve jumper, then layer on a denim jacket. Finally top it off with a faux fur jacket and you are winter ready!

  12. Haha I laughed out loud at "By looking hot" I'm so using it the first chance I get! Thanks for putting together such an informative post -- I'm in NZ so it's bloody freezing where I'm at (and raining too! Gah!). If all else fails there's always denim! Xx

  23. This is such a great post! I completely agree that when it's scorching hot wearing denim can be the last thing on your mind, but you really broke it down and shared some brilliant looks/ideas! I love the look you chose for 25 degrees, with the little denim shorts and a feminine off the shoulder blouse, that's my favourite look for summer & I can't enough of pretty blouses just like that one! This was a lovely little post & I did giggle a few time there too :-)

  27. I like denim tucked into a skirt too! I think I only wore it once though so I'll have to bring that look back out soon! I don't even want to think about those winter looks at all! I'm not ready for that but bring on the chambray!
