It's hard to remember a time where I wasn't a fan of jeans in a lighter wash. I've always found them easy to mix with either bright colors or neutrals, giving a variety of outfit options fitting to the look I was going for, something I never quite got from darker wash denim. While jeans are a classic item and different shades are constantly being worn, it's no secret that more fashion folk have been bringing out their lighter styles with a majority of their outfits, and I'm 100% on board with it. It gives a cool and laid-back twist to any ensemble, and who doesn't want that?
To showcase the vibe further, I'm showcasing 10 fashion girls wearing light jeans that have already given me even more ways to re-wear the pair sitting in my closet right now. There are never too many options, right? Keep scrolling for more, and shop a few pairs while you're at it.

Style Tip: If you want to make your T-shirt, jeans, and sneakers a little more forward-looking, a leather jacket will do the job.
