If you’re ever stuck for what to wear, then a pair of black jeans is a failsafe option. But what to wear with black jeans? Well, in short, pretty much anything goes. Below, you’ll find outfit ideas that revolve around your classic pair of black jeans.
Why black jeans are a go-to for everything
Black jeans really are one of the easiest items to style in your closet. You can wear them for pretty much any occasion – whether work, a casual day out or for dinner.
Try with a blazer and silk blouse when you need to look professional, with sneakers and a ruched t-shirt for daytime, or add some heels and a dressier top for an evening out.
However, even those anything goes, a little inspiration always helps…
The best black jeans to choose
First, just in case you don’t have a perfectly fitting pair of black of jeans in your closet, or if you want a different style, let’s take a look at what you could choose.
A slim fitting pair of jeans will always be on-trend. The NYDJ jeans (below) feature tummy-tuck technology to keep everything tucked in.
A pair of skinny jeans are a style staple for any season. For summer, you could wear with loafers or ballet flats and, for winter, wear with a pair of knee-high boots. Fonda @savvysouthernchic above wears her skinny jeans with black loafers.
A pair of ankle pants is perfect for summer and winter. In warmer weather, pair with sandals and wear with ankle boots during cooler weather.
Pull on jeans
A pair of pull on jeans is always an easy, stylish option. Simply pop on a tunic top and you’re good to go.
Bootcut and wider legs were off-trend for a little while. But now they’re definitely back in style, as showcased by Marie-Louise @mrsmlmode (above).
You can’t go wrong with a pair of straight jeans. The Lee jeans (below) have thousands of good reviews from women who say they have just the right amount of stretch and hold the tummy in place.
A pair of coated jeans can add an edge to your outfit. Abi @stealmystyle40 (above) wears hers with a pair of red sneakers.

Wear sneakers or flats for a casual look, or opt for ankle boots or longer boots for winter and fall. Claudia @glamupyourlifestyle above (read her style interview here) wears her black jeans with sneakers.

Finish off your outfit with a pop of color. I like the idea of wearing my black jeans with neutrals and a pop of red. Annette @theladyofstyle (read her style interview here) chooses different textures to add interest to her look.
