Curious to know how to wear your favorite black jeans this fall? I’m sharing three fail-safe ideas so you can get major wear of your black denim.
This time of year, I like wearing my black denim with neutral tops, sweaters and jackets. Because some areas of the country are still fairly warm, you’ll want to stick to light fabrics like cotton.
For a casual look, you could pair your favorite black jeans with a white tee or rocker tee and a denim jacket and sneakers. If you want to dress up the look, a tailored blazer with heels will make the trend office-ready.
I think it’s also a great time to play around with prints — a pair of leopard flats looks great with skinny black jeans and a chunky sweater. Or pair a plaid button-down with your ripped black jeans and booties for an autumn feel.
3 Ways to Style Black Jeans for Fall
The best advice I can give you is to make sure you are comfortable in your outfit choice. Also, take into consideration the style of you jeans. If you have skinny jeans, you may try pairing with an oversized pullover, cardigan or boyfriend blazer.
Alternately, if you are wearing wide-leg jeans or flares, you may try pairing your jeans with a structured jacket or fitted button down blouse. I like the juxtaposition and it also creates a balanced look.
How To Style Black Jeans – Chunky Sweater
As mentioned above, the oversized look up top will look great with a skinny or straight leg jean. Chunky sweaters are in for 2020 and are also cozy for chilly fall nights. Also, makes sure you stock up on cardigans for fall. I love how a long cardigan pairs with skinny jeans and will be a great addition to your outfit for nights out.
How To Style Black Jeans – Chambray Shirt
Chambray looks so chic against black denim. The most popular style is a long-sleeved button-down shirt. You can also play around with having the shirt tucked, half-tucked, or knotted upfront, or layered on top of a white tee as I did here. There is an array of chambray styles available and many will pair so great with black denim.
This is also a very casual look and will look great with your favorite pair of white sneakers.
How To Style Black Jeans — Trench Duster
One of the chicest ways to style black jeans? I truly believe you can do no wrong with a classic trench. This timeless piece has survived generations of changing trends and is still in style. While a classic, tan trench coat will look amazing with black jeans, I paired mine with a dusty rose trench duster. This duster is lightweight while maintaining the fall feel.
How to Keep Black Jeans From Fading
Unfortunately, it is very easy to damage black denim without proper garment care. Want to know how to keep your black jeans from fading? Be sure to wash in cold water with like colors.
Also, wash your jeans inside out to keep from fading, and use a detergent specifically made for dark colors.
I also recommend hanging them to dry instead of sticking in the dryer. The more wear and tear your jeans endure (from the spin cycle) the more likely they are to fade.
I hope this post inspired you to try out some new looks this fall when rocking your favorite pair of black denim.
