Outfits with Light Blue Jeans for Girls

Let there be light… wash jeans! Spring is all about lighter colors, looking forward to summer, and embracing the sunshine in new outfits you feel good in. Start your denim makeover with the jeans and joggers we’re obsessed with, then layer on allll the comfy tops.

Better Together

Some things just make sense together, like blue jeans and flannels, and denim joggers and hoodies. Choose a light wash jean with a layer-ready flannel shirt for a ‘fit that feels right, or try an oversized military hoodie with denim joggers for a new take on the utility trend.

Not sure where to start your new light jeans outfit? Try a must-have fit like the ‘90s Low-Rise Straight Jean or a high-waisted denim jogger in a light wash with deets like ripped knees, patched holes, and frayed hems.

Light Jeans Outfits for Guys

Get on the bright track with light washes in your fave men’s jeans, including all the best slim, skinny, straight leg jeans, and Athletic fit styles. Light wash jeans look good with pretty much everything you already have in your closet, making them an easy add this season.

Versatile Layering

Create your ultimate layered look by wearing your new blue jeans with light-colored graphic tees and flannels, or mix and match prints up top for a dynamic take on the light and bright trend. Double up on denim with a jean jacket in a light wash or go for the prep trend by pairing a polo with a button-up shirt or jacket.

Level up your throwback look by choosing a light wash ‘90s Baggy jean and wearing it with a vintage graphic tee, or keep with the classics in a light blue ripped skinny jean with a Super Soft fleece hoodie.
