What to Wear with Black Jeans: Size Up

Black Jeans With shades of Brown

What to Wear with Black Jeans, first thought that comes to mind of many youngsters. My first reaction when pulling out black jeans is to pair it with a neutral color. It’s such a classic pairing and the colors just always…work. I love playing with the black and brown combo when putting outfits together, especially in the fall and winter months. There’s something so classic (in my opinion) about the two colors together – especially when paired with gold accessories!

Wear Black Jeans With creams and off-white.

In the same way black looks great with tan and camel-colored hues, it also pairs well with most other neutral colors. I’d say the biggest thing to keep in mind here though is that you don’t want there to be too much contrast or bulky-ness; you want to make sure your outfit is well-balanced from head-to-toe.

For this look, some people might be totally fine pairing the sweater and jeans combo with black booties but I felt like the outfit would have been too top heavy. This is an instance where the sweater and jean (light and dark) contrast sort of needed to be a balanced out with a leather cognac bootie.

Wear Black Jeans with Taupe-

Just like black pairs well with tans and brown-based neutrals, it also works well with “mushroom”-toned colors or more taupe-tones hues.

Wear Black Jeans with Black for an ALL Black Look

I’m actually considering doing a whole blog post on how to best wear the classic “all black” ensemble, but for now I’ll include it under wearing black jeans with neutrals (since black is technically a neutral too.

Wear black jeans with shades of grey

Grey is basically a neutral, but since I pair the specific combo of black + grey together SO often, I thought it was deserving of it’s own category. Grey with black, to me, is basically an updated version of a classic look.

When to Wear Black Jeans

Black jeans can be worn for numerous occasions. Thanks to their versatility and neutral colour, they are ideal not only for casual outfits but also for smart casual and semi-formal styles. As such, you can don your black jeans for events ranging from Sunday brunch to more formal dinners and evening cocktails. All you need to do is ensure that the rest of your look is suited to the type of dress code you are aiming for.

Pair black jeans With Denim or Chambray

I personally love to use chambray/denim and black jeans mixed in with stripes or another print to break it up. Chambray/denim and black are always a good starting point when you want to layer – since so many things match with both materials – and they are a great base for an outfit.

Wear Black Jeans With White

I especially love white on top, black jeans, and white sneakers – that contrast is just one of my favorites. I feel like it’s the winter version of jeans, sandals, and a white flow top, right.

What I love about this brand is that we're creating pieces that are worn over and over. It's not about seasons and we don't work to trends.
