We Found Stylish *New* Ways To Style Your Black Jeans!

According to me, there's no such thing as too many pairs of jeans. It's that one fashion item that can be worn anywhere and anytime. You don't have to worry about replacing it with something trendier because they never go out of style. They're super chic, and if you get bored of a pair (which is highly unlikely), there's a new denim style available!

Combine the most versatile garment in your wardrobe with the most versatile colour ever, and voila, you have yourself the ultimate go-to piece of clothing! It is a basic staple stashed in everyone's wardrobe.

Since we all own a pair, we decided it was time to experiment with the perfect OOTDs for it. Read on to rediscover this good ol' wonder from your closet.

Types Of Black Jeans

Not only do black denim have a ton of uses, but they also come in multiple types. Just pick one according to your body type and you're all set.

Skinny High Rise Jeans


High-waisted jeans are all the rage and have numerous advantages - the most important out of all? It accentuates your waist. Not to forget, they also exude a very Audrey Hepburn vibe. They are best worn with a crop top, but you may even style them with a tucked-in t-shirt.

Boyfriend Jeans


Why are they called 'boyfriend' jeans, you ask? Because they look as if you've borrowed the pair from your boyfriend's closet. If you're among the ones who keep comfort over everything, then these denims are a no-brainer for you. They fit perfectly around the hips and subsequently broaden from the waist down. As they already have a loose fit, make sure you wear a fitted tee/top with them.

Straight-cut Jeans


If you're not a fan of super-skinny jeans, then a pair of straight denim is your best bet. They're a cross between skinny and boyfriend, as they're not too loose but also don't cling to your legs. They have a snug fit and make your legs look longer!

Bootcut Jeans


Bootcut is a popular style from the '90s and looks perfect with heeled boots. Also called 'mom' jeans, these jeans are fitted from the hips and thighs and open up below the knee. Wondering how to style a pair? They look great with puff-sleeve blouses!

Low Rise Jeans

A low rise pair of denim starts a little below your belly button and fits low on your midriff. They look super cute with short t-shirts or tucked-in tops.

Flared Jeans


These jeans are a flared up version of the bootcut jeans and make a strong fashion statement. Flares, in my opinion, are the most exciting thing to happen to denim since skinny jeans. Pair them up with a pretty blouse for a contemporary chic look.

Distressed/Ripped Jeans


The ripped fashion statement created quite a stir. It was loved by the teenagers and held in disregard by the adults. But they are here to stay. We've all been obsessed with a pair at one point of time, right?

What Prints To Wear With Black Jeans

Prints are not just meant for decorative drapes, but can also be incorporated with your good old black denim jeans.

Plaid With Black Jeans


Black denim with a plaid shirt is a classic pairing. A button-down shirt can be styled in so many different ways. Leave it open and wear a tank top inside, or button it up and tie a knot. I usually prefer pastel-coloured plaids with my black jeans. Just mix up these two basics to nail that breezy casual look.

Polka Dots With Black Jeans


There is never a wrong time (or outfit) for polka dots. Polka dot print is very cute and makes you look chic in any form. To get a spiffy look, pair up a polka dot crop top or a black-and-white polka dot blouse with high-waist black jeans.

Tees with stripes in literally all colours would pair up perfectly with black jeans. Just make sure that the stripes are horizontal and not vertical. I can wear a black and white striped tee with my black jeans ALL THE TIME. And trust me, this casual combination would never fail you.

Outfit Ideas For Black Jeans

There's a whole lot of experiments that you can do with a pair of black jeans in your closet. I will try to break it down for you - shoes, accessories, scarves and colours that work!

If you do get bored of the plain jackets, add a little dazzling vibe to your look. If you feel like experimenting, throw on a printed jacket. The solid black colour of your jeans will help bring out the quirkiness of the jacket.

Knotted Top

This look has a very cosmopolitan chic vibe to it. Either go for a blazer with a block colour or a vibrant pattern to complement your black jeans. You can wear a basic inner, as your blazer would be stealing the show!

Just get everything black from your wardrobe - heels, shades, a long coat - and put it together with your black jeans. And there, you have a failproof look for the evening. Just put on a bright red lipstick (Ruby Woo FTW) to add a little pop to your outfit.
