How to wear this summer's hottest denim looks

Denim style: How to wear the straight-leg jean

"I’ve always loved how denim looks on other people, but I’ve never loved the way it looks on me. I’d try on jeans and find that the rise was too short, the waist too large, the leg too tight. Then I tried these Paige Denim High Rise Straight Leg and fell in love. I love the dark wash (so elegant & versatile!), and how high the jeans sit on my waist. They’re perfect for Monday morning, Friday evening, Sunday afternoon—a true denim dream." —Laura deCarufel, fashion features director MUST-READ: Meet the ELLE Canada editors

Denim look: How to wear the boot cut jean

"Goodbye skinny jeans, hello boot cut! I love how boot cut jeans narrow down the waist and elongate the leg. Talk about figure-flattering denim. Try balancing out the flare in boot cut jeans with a peplum blazer and blouse. Pointy-toe heels work best because they won't hide beneath your hemline."—Sarah Thompson, web producer MUST-READ: 10 things to know about denim

Denim style: How to wear the high-waisted jean

"I’ve been a devoted fan of the skinny jean for years, but what I’ve only recently learned is how much more versatile and flattering the high-waisted variety is (especially for us gals with extralong torsos). This dark-washed Hudson pair made me fall back in love with denim — they look so perfectly summery with a nautical striped cotton tee and sandals (#justaddwater), and I’m looking forward to trying them with a chic crop top (enter Balenciaga) and booties for an evening out." —Charlotte Herrold, associate fashion editor GALLERY: How to wear the Canadian tuxedo

Denim style: How to wear the boyfriend jean

"I'm convinced that the boyfriend jean is the perfect style of denim: it sits comfortably low on the hips and pairs effortlessly, interchangeably with both heels and flats. And then I decided to wear it underneath a summer dress and figured that this is the only type of denim I may ever wear again. Happily."—Ava Baccari GALLERY: What the ELLE Canada editors are wearing to work this week
