3. Ripped jeans

Ripped jeans run the risk of looking too casual. Strike a balance by pairing your distressed pants with a dressy top and some fancy footwear.

4. Acid wash jeans

Acid wash jeans, because of their super light color, tend to look washed out. Ride on this color scheme and pick cool, refreshing colors for a cohesive look.

TRY: We Are Kindred Lulu Broderie Anglaise Cotton Trench, $355 (approximately P18,670), Modaoperandi.com; Bershka high waist acid wash mom jeans, P2,495, BERSHKA, SM Aura; H&M Ankle boots, P2,290, Glorietta 3

5. Colored jeans

Colored jeans are officially back on trend, and here's how you can wear them in your creative office this summer: Warm-hued pairs are perfect with a white, crisp button-down, a fun hat, and a pair of neutral-hued sneakers. If your office dress code does not permit sneakers, you can swap them out with a pair of sandals.

6. Flared jeans

Flared jeans help you accentuate your best assets and at the same time, elongate your figure. To utilize this jean cut, style it with a chunky sweater (for cool days) or a simple printed blouse, and complete your look with kitten-heeled mules.
