So you probably got told that denim was a go-to autumn selection, and also perfect for the cold winter weather. It’s ideal for spring, they say, and summer’s no different. So who’s lying? Is it really possible that denim is the winner of the all-year-round essential prize? In short, yes. But what does change with the seasons are the cuts. With the help of Urban Outfitters’ in-house denim label, BDG, we’ve rounded up the perfect denim fits for the coming season.

Of course, we’re looking at trends to inform our decisions, but we’ve also considered the more functional aspects of denim for spring and summer. After long, drawn-out consideration, we’ve narrowed our essential BDG denim fits down to just four. From normcore greatness in the form of the Vintage cut to 90s-infused bagginess with the Skate fits as well as deconstructed Bow Fits, and timeless Dad silhouettes, it's all here.

Straight jeans are always on the cards. They’re essentially trend-proof, except for that weird year where everything was skin-tight, and they’re extremely versatile when it comes to styling, too.

Vintage Slim Jean

We’re keeping things vintage with the light stone washes, but this pair features a slightly tighter cut for those who like a sharper silhouette. The slim leg doesn’t take away from the time-proven style though.

Relaxed & Skate Fit

Big Jack really is big, and as we see the things we thought we’d left in the ‘90s and ‘00s reappear on our radar, Big Jack is looking like a serious contender for spring and summer 2021.

If you thought the light wash was as much ‘90s energy as you could take, buckle up. This dark indigo pair kicks things up to the next level of nostalgia. We’re styling this pair with a baggy white tee all summer.

Bow Fit

BDGBow Fit Jean
$69
Buy at Urban Outfitters

BDG jeans in bow fit offer a more intriguing silhouette thanks to an almost imperceptibly bowed leg. This pair features beaten details like rips to the legs and raw hems for a laid-back vibe this season. The light wash pairs well with everything, too.

Bow Fit Jean Acid Overdye

BDGBow Fit Jean
$69
Buy at Urban Outfitters

Turning the clock back further than even the ‘90s, this pair boasts an acid overdye that’s straight out of the ‘80s. Unfairly abandoned, this denim wash actually adds a lot of texture to understated fits.

Dad Fit

Dad Fit Blue Patchwork

A slim, cropped fit with a light wash will never not work. It’s a simple formula but it always gets us. This pair of patchwork BDG jeans has serious wabi-sabi energy.

Dad Fit Paint Splatter

Paint splatters are a go-to for labels ranging from Margiela through to BDG. It’s a quick way to give an item worn-in character and a visual lift that doesn’t dominate the aesthetic. White paint on a stonewash backdrop has a natural, authentically vintage feel here.
