Are Baggy Jeans the Best Beach Cover Up? Emily Ratajkowski, Bella Hadid, and Kaia Gerber Say Yes

  • 8649

Choosing a cover up for the beach? You don’t need a wrap skirt or crochet dress if you own a pair of baggy jeans. Celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow to Emily Ratajkowski have made the case for a pair of denim at the beach– and we don’t mean cut off shorts.

While a pair of denim pants might be an unexpected item for oceanside style, (who wants to wear wet jeans?) but they are actually just the right amount of casual for a day in the sand and makes a nice pairing with a two piece suit– so long as you don’t wear them right after you go for a swim. You could also take a page out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s playbook and throw on a pair with rolled up cuffs for chilly summer nights or afternoon strolls along the sand.

Ahead, find 4 stylish ways to wear your jeans to the beach, and how to shop the look.
