If you don’t feel like peeling off skinny jeans after a sweaty day in 80 degree summer weather, Lucy Hale found your denim alternative. Photographed in Los Angeles, Hale wore Free People Wide-Leg Crop Jeans ($78) with a simple tank top and flat sandals, and we couldn’t think of an easier or chicer way to beat the heat.
Of course, the $78 price tag is definitely appealing, but our love for the jeans doesn’t end there. The high waist and wide-leg silhouette is supremely flattering, while the cropped length is perfect for showing off your new summer sandals. Scroll down to see how Hale styled the Free People jeans and shop them for yourself. Who knows: You might not need your skinny jeans for the rest of the summer.
