Black Jeans | Black on Black

Cheers to Friday, friends, and the weekend ahead! Today is the last day of school before a week-long Thanksgiving Break, and I’m so ready!! Now that the kids are in High School and Middle School, I feel like I barely get to see them anymore. We’ve got a few college campus tours scheduled for next week, so we’ll have some good road trip togetherness!

Today we’re wrapping up the latest Five Ways Series, all about Black Jeans. When creating outfits for a Five Ways series, my goal is to give you options for a little bit of everything…work, weekend, and date night. Today’s style is a no-brainer, and something you can likely throw together for tonight!

Black on black with a touch of leopard is a fail-safe combo, and flattering on everyone. Black boots would elongate the legs even further, but I opted for tan to further prove that black and brown do go together! (See my other example here.)

This sweater can be worn off-the-shoulder for a night out, or as a cowlneck for day. It has the cutest satin-covered buttons, and is warm and soft. And clearly I’m a fan of the black jeans, since I’ve worn them every day this week. 😉 They are mid-rise, and stretchy enough to hold their shape all day.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS, and 26 jeans…so both are true to size.

    This sweater drapes (hangs) so beautifully (on you!). Nice blend of fibers. Tempted.
    Looks like black is the new black.
    Ideas for another 5 ways? Footwear that looks good w/skinny jeans, perhaps? Five ways w/a white sweater or blouse? 5 ways w/accessories w/o “overkill” or too much. 5 ways with a large or small scarf?
    Have fun on the college tours. I found them to be entertaining.

    I love the black on black look with a pop of color. That is my favorite outfit. I love all your classic outfits and think they would look great on everyone.

  7. I love that you’ve shown just how versatile black denim can be- it’s truly a wardrobe staple! It’s also difficult to choose a favorite. I think the striped tee with denim jacket and the look with the moto jacket are two of my faves.
