It’s easy to style basic blue denim, whether you choose light wash or dark wash. However, sometimes you need to dress things up. That’s where black denim can come in handy. We’ve rounded up one amazing pair of black jeans that are worth the splurge and four easy ways to style your newest wardrobe addition, whether you’re running errands or heading to a holiday gathering.
You’ll be eager to try these four easy ways to style black jeans ASAP
The first step is to start with a great pair of black jeans that make you look and feel amazing. A good option is the 10” High Rise Skinny Jeans in Johnny Wash: Comfort Stretch Edition from Madewell. At $98, these are a bit of a splurge, but they’re so comfortable you’ll want to wear them all the time. The stretch in these jeans will make them fit like a glove, especially once you break them in. The denim is of the highest quality from Italy’s Candiani Mill. These jeans are available in regular, tall, and petite inseams so you’ll be able to find your perfect fit with ease.
50 Shades of Brown
Most people feel like mixing black and brown is a huge no-no, but when done right, the combo can actually be very stylish. Try a camel cardigan and a white t-shirt paired with sneakers for a more casual look. To feel a little more dressed up, try a striped camel colored blazer and white blouse paired with loafers.
Have An Off-White Out
Cream colored tops are a great option for pairing with black jeans. You can maintain a neutral palette without the starkness of a white t-shirt or blouse. This wrap top adds an interesting look while still maintaining the neutrality of a basic t-shirt.
Go For Bold Colors
Florals or stripes are good bets when choosing bold colors because the fun patterns also add interest to your outfit against the neutrality of black jeans. This off the shoulder floral top is a fun option for spring and summer. For cooler temperatures, go with this brightly striped turtleneck, which is available in three different colors and is affordably priced (so you can spring for all three!).
Mix Your Denims
Black jeans and a chambray shirt are another classic combo that will stand the test of time. When pairing chambray with black, you can either go with a light wash denim shirt like this Oxford shirt or a dark wash denim, as with this Western-style shirt.
No matter how you choose to style your black denim, these four options will provide you with plenty of ways to mix and match for the coolest looks around.
