I wear a lot of black. As in, I wear black just about every single day. And on the days that I don’t wear black, I wear white. Black and white. White and black. This is my basic uniform. While some of you colour-loving readers might think I live a boring fashion life, I would completely disagree. I jazz things up with textures, layers, and accessories.
You know I’ve been working with L.L.Bean this year, and I was thrilled to try out their signature skinny jeans. After I received them, I wore them for three days straight, which basically sums up how I feel about them. I love them. They sit a little higher on the waist, they have plenty of stretch (but do not stretch out), they have a slim leg, and the back pockets are perfectly placed. They have washed well so far (I hang them to dry), and they keep their shape. Needless to say, I have no complaints at all. If you’re in between sizes according to the L.L.Bean sizing chart, I would go for the larger size as these are a skinny fit, and you don’t want them to be totally uncomfortably tight.
I’m wearing*: L.L.Bean signature skinny jeans c/o, ruffle trim sweater, boots (similar)
Considering how often I wear black jeans (and I imagine you might, too), I thought I’d share five ways to style a sharp pair of black jeans.
First: The Classics: black jeans paired with a classic white shirt
white shirt, belt, shoes, crossbody bag, necklace, earrings
Second: Casual Confidence: black jeans paired with classic Converse and a hoodie
Converse, hoodie, tote, tank top, watch, earrings, sunglasses, wallet
Third: Feminine Perfection: black jeans paired with lace and sparkle
top, shoes, clutch, cuff, earrings
Four: Getting Down to Business: black jeans paired with turtleneck, blazer, and Chelsea booties
purse, booties, turtleneck, blazer, earrings, scarf, bracelet
Five: Rock and Roll: black jeans paired with stripes and leather
shoes, leather jacket, ruffle back tee, clutch, earrings, bangle
What are your favourite pairings for your black jeans?
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Thanks again, L.L.Bean, for sending over the signature skinny jeans. Read my previous L.L.Bean posts.
