Don’t know what to wear with black jeans? This look book gives you a variety of different styles to easily recreate with clothes you already have!
I’m so happy to be writing this article about what to wear with black jeans. I seriously love black jeans. They’re my favorite color of denim and my favorite type of casual pants.
My love affair with black jeans began back in high school after receiving a gorgeous pair of GUESS black denim flares, and also a matching denim jacket from the same brand. If you can’t guess, this was in the early 2000s. I wore the life out of those pieces, both together and separately. I eventually outgrew the black flares, but the black denim jacket remained in my life decades later (and many pairs of black jeans later as well).
There are so many ways to style black jeans and I’m sharing a few of my favorites with you today. These styles for what to wear with black jeans include smart casual, dressy, casual, and streetwear because black jeans are the most versatile pants in your wardrobe. Ready to get dressed?

Bootcut / Flare Black Jeans
I personally recommend a pair of very dark, all black jeans in your closet. This way you can create dressy outfits in-place of black trousers, and the jeans look pretty much like black pants, but with the flattering fit of denim. Add The Really Really from AYR to your wardrobe staples or my personal favorite, The Le High Flare in Film Noir from Frame. If you’re going for a cropped look try the 9″ Demi-Boot Crop Jean in Stay Black Wash by J. Crew.
For a vintage 2000’s style, try the Faded Bootcut Jeans from Micas. Or try the Pull On Flare by Jessica Simpson for a sleek style without any front pockets or belt loops–a definite replacement for those black pants.
Straight-Leg Black Jeans
Wide-Leg / Relaxed Black Jeans
The California LAX Barrel Jeans from 1 People are a fun twist on mom jeans with pleating and sustainably-sourced upcycled denim. The Mid-Rise Black Ripped Baggy Tapered Jeans from Express will give you a chic street style look that you can also dress up with a blazer and a set of heels.
The Luxury High-Waisted Wide Leg Jeans from Autograph are a chic style at under $100. Or try the top-rated Mia from Joe’s Jeans in vintage stretch denim. The Paige Frankie High-Rise Wide Leg Crop Jeans give a bit of a culotte look and look pretty chic with slim ankle boots.
Slim / Skinny Black Jeans
For a laidback vibe, try the The Mid-Rise Perfect Vintage Jeans from Madewell. The Mid-Rise Skinny Jean in Black Wash from Banana Republic will always be a classic in my book…what else can you tuck into your tall boots in the cold weather?
