Every time i pull out black jeans is to pair it with a neutral colour. I love playing with the black and brown combo when putting outfits together, especially in the fall and winter months. In my opinion there is something classic about the two colours together – especially when paired with gold accessories!

Black looks great with with most other neutral colours. I’d say the biggest thing to keep in mind is that you don’t want too much contrast, you want to make sure your outfit is well-balanced from head to toe. I’ve found that a black jeans outfit with lighter colours, white, etc. needs to be styled appropriately in order to balance well and look put together.
For instance, if you’re going to wear black jeans with a lighter cream sweater, you might want to balance out the stark contrast of the sweater and pant with brown boots, a cardigan, hat or some other accessory.
Just like black pairs well with tans and brown-based neutrals, it also works well with taupe-tones hues. I paired my black skinny jeans with a taupe top and finished the look with suedelace-up flats. I tried the outfit on with black leather flats but it just looked incomplete for some reason – the suede taupe ones just looked so much better. I couldn’t put my finger on why though!
I actually considering doing a whole blog post on how to best wear the classic “all black” ensemble, but for now I’ll include it under wearing black jeans with neutrals since black is technically a neutral too!
Wearing black on black will always be a viable option. And if you live in NYC, I’ve found that it’s basically the only option – well, at least if you don’t want to stick out. You really can’t go wrong when wearing black on black and as long as you finish the look by incorporating differing textures or with some accessories, you’re golden. In my experience, you want to add some sort of interest to the outfit to make it look finished. I usually do this with jewelry, a scarf or a belt!
Grey is basically a neutral, but since I pair the specific combo of black + grey together SO often, I thought it was deserving of it’s own category. Grey with black, to me, is basically an updated version of a classic.
Chambray just looks best with black, it’s a fact. I’m not usually a huge fan of blue on denim, so the contrast of denim and black (if I’m not going for a white jeans look) is what I reach for.
Black jeans tend to make chambray look a little less casual and farm-ish (does that make sense?). It’s a way of making the chambray look a little more fashion-forward and chic, in my opinion.
I have no problem wearing white during winter, but I definitely tend to gravitate to a white top matched with black pants in colder weather. A white top & white jeans just looks very summery to me (unless done intentionally for a winter white look) but for the most part, a white top just looks better with black.
I especially love white on top, black jeans, and white sneakers – that contrast is just one of my favourites. I feel like it’s the winter version of jeans, sandals, and a white flowy top.
I was surprised I was able to make these colours in this outfit work because when you think about it, there’s actually A LOT going on in this outfit. I mean, grey shoes with a brown belt with black jeans AND an olive sweater? WOW. That’s a lot of colors – right? But something about this outfit really made me happy and I think just straight up WORKED. I think the gold hardware and the deep brown leather of the belt helped pull it all together. But for the most part, I LOVE wearing olive greens with black jeans and it’s a colour combo I frequent often.
I bought two pairs of your jeans New Orleans for $99.99 pair I washed them once I’m inside out in cold water and all the glitter came off I had one parent silver glitter and one pear and gold glitter now I just have two pairs of pants that are look like I painted in old houses I only got to wear them once
