New season, new trend in denim – isn’t that always the way? Now that summer 2023 is here, we’ve curated a list of the top trends in designer blue denim and jeans outfits, including pants, jackets, shorts, skirts, and more.
what’s trending in designer denim and blue jeans for Summer 2023?
The blue jean. An item of clothing so ubiquitous, so beloved, that it seems to transcend time and trend. On the one hand, jeans are reliable and unchanging; but on the other, they are somehow more versatile than anything else in our closet.
Denim can be made short or long, high-waisted or low. Skinny or wide. Bootcut or boyfriend. Jackets, overshirts, skirts, and every other piece of apparel imaginable. And yet, in spite of all this, it can sometimes seem impossible to find the perfect pair of jeans.
And that’s why we are here to make a few suggestions. If you’ve lost the thread of what’s in style right now, here are ten items you should consider adding to your summer wardrobe. Themes you’ll notice? Straight legs. Wide-leg flairs. Plenty of nods to the nineties. And above all else, sustainable fashion.
We have pants, shorts, skirts and more, so look below for all of your designer denim and blue jean needs for summer 2023.
10 designer blue denim and jeans outfits trending in Summer 2023
1. DL1961: the Hepburn Wide Leg High Rise Vintage
We have good news and bad news. The bad news is that traditionally, denim has been one of the least sustainable fabrics in fashion. But don’t worry, because that’s where the good news comes in – there are plenty of brands that have arrived to change all that. And one of those brands is DL1961.
They have been making waves this season with their super sustainable jeans, which so far seem to be one of a kind. Not only do they use consume a fraction of the water used by other denim production, but they also include a QR code with every single pair of pants – scan, and you’ll be able to view and understand each step in the process of production. And you’ll be able to see every ounce of water and energy that went into your outfit of the day.
But it’s not just that DL1961 is going to change the way we think about what we put on our bodies – they also happen to make great clothing. There are flattering, fashionable jeans in every style, but we happen to be fans of the Hepburn Wide Leg High Rise Vintage.

2. Abercrombie: the Ultra High Rise 90’s Straight Jean
It wouldn’t be a list of fashion recommendations unless it included at least one suggestion from… Tik Tok. Because as you know, Tik Tok is 2023’s trendsetter. And whether we like it or not, we have to admit that sometimes the App knows what it’s talking about. Because these “it” Tik Tok jeans from Abercrombie do seem to have it all. The straight leg. The high waist. Fifteen washes to choose from, and five lengths – short, extra-short, regular, long, or extra-long. Pair with sandals and any kind of shirt, and you’ll be all set for summer.

3. Tu Es Mon Tresor: The Amber Jean
In the height of the pandemic, Tokyo designer Aimi Sahara relaunched her nostalgic denim brand Tu Es Mon Tresor – or “you are my treasure.” The brand comes with the tagline “the feminine denim,” and though 2020 was two years ago, these are still some of our favorite jeans.
Every style is named after a different gem – browse between the Emerald, the Diamond, the Amethyst, and others – and each does feel as special as a precious stone. We wanted to highlight The Amber Jean, which is high-waisted with wide-flair legs, gold buttons, and amber stitching around the buttonhole.

4. Candiani Denim: the Sant’Amrogio Regular Indigo
These jeans are part of Candiani Denim’s exciting new Candiani Coreva Collection, and they are one of a kind – they are made with COREVA technology, and are the world’s first jeans to boast that they are 100% biodegradable and compostable. A huge step up for denim’s sustainability game. Constructed with a combination of plant-based yarn and organic cotton, they are 100% microplastic-free. For guilt-free jeans, these could be the perfect purchase.

5. Glenn Liburd: the Relaxed Wide Leg for Men
We did not forget about men’s jeans. Glenn Liburd has worked behind the scenes in denim for over thirty years, and in 2019 – at the age of 62 – launched his small New York business, Glenn’s Denim. And that these are some of the best men’s jeans we’ve ever seen. They check all the boxes for 2022’s trends, with their medium high-rise, and their wide, straight legs. They also come unwashed, allowing for you to break them in over time – which is as it should be.
BUY NOW – $295.00.
6. Dodo Bar Or: Relaxed Boyfriend Two-Tone Jeans
Two-tones – another big trend for 2023. The color blocking on these Dodo Bar Or jeans not only adds some subtle dimension – it also acts like a contour for your legs. And will make them appear longer than they are. Look for a pair with a slight flair to really play into the optical illusion. That’s fire.
BUY NOW – $355.00.
7. Triarchy: the light Jacket
Triarchy is another sustainable denim brand, and we are in love with all their garments. And while you should absolutely check out their pants, we wanted to make sure you knew about their denim jacket. This is perfect for those breezier summer moments where you want something light to throw over your shoulders. It walks a line between a loose and tailored fit, and just looking at it has us excited for those magical summer memories.
BUY NOW – $178.00.
8. Gucci: the Embroidered Denim Shorts
Of course, we have to suggest some shorts – here in New York, we’ve already had some days over 90 degrees. And we can’t get over these shorts from Gucci, which come embroidered with some serious bling and sequin flowers. For some extra seasonal pizzazz, these might be the winning shorts.
BUY NOW – $5,500.
9. Good American: Good 90’s Shorts
And a second shorts option, because you know you’ll need it. With their high-waist and frayed edges, these are a fabulous tribute to the nineties. And with their gap-proof, waist-hugging construction, we know that they’re what we want to have on our bodies all summer long. Stay comfortable, cute, and on-trend.
BUY NOW: $129.00.
10. Still Here: the Panama Skirt
This A-line maxi skirt from Still Here is inspired by what else? The 1990’s. But just looking at it, we feel like we’re about to enjoy a day in Central Park with our friends. The front slit makes it nice and comfortable for even the hottest days. You need to have it.
