Sexy Denim Pieces Perfect for Hot Vax Summer

From new denim constructions, weights and washes to the steps global mills are taking to reduce impact, Rivet's SS23 In Season Look Book: Denim & Trims has everything you need to know for a successful denim season.

The pandemic unlocked a series of fashion trends mostly centered around comfort. Matching loungewear sets, elevated basics and loose-fitting denim became the Covid uniform for many who were stuck indoors for more than a year.

But now, as restrictions drop and temperatures rise, consumers are choosing to slip into something a little less comfortable. “Hot vax summer,” according to retail analytics firm Edited, is a post-pandemic celebration of freedom defined by sexy silhouettes, bold colors and touchable textures. The trend complements the maximalism movement of extravagant apparel, also birthed from the year much of the world spent inside.

Rivet compiled a list of some of the hottest denim items to stock up on for hot vax summer, inspired by the sexiest designer items that are currently catching headlines.
