Highsnobiety

There’s no discussion around the fact that denim is one of the most beloved fabrics when it comes to comfortable everyday wear. Initially worn by miners and laborers in the 17th century, the sturdy material has carved its way up into the luxury field— and we aren’t mad about it. While brands such as Levis and Wrangler offer classic denim fits, other luxury labels are upping up their denim game with some elevated and eye-catching denim pieces.

Our love for denim relies on the styling versatility it provides, from a trusty pair of jeans to a classic denim jacket. However, don’t forget, not all your denim pieces have to feature that typical plain, light blue colorway. Here’s how you can get experimental and switch up your classic denim rotation with help from MATCHES. From Bottega’s white summer jeans to Carhartt WIP’s carpenter-looking pants, we’ve rounded up the best pieces for you to live your denim dream to the fullest this summer.

Breaking away from its goth aesthetic, Rick Owens is opting for a bit of a cleaner silhouette. Even though these pants are quite sinched at the waist, the slouchier bottom creates a loose, comfy shape, but it’s the chocolatey-brown colorway that makes this piece unique for us.
