I’m finding tons of fun ways to style my new Lee black skinny jeans, from black boots (Elaine Turner) to black polka dots (top from Belk) with an accent of lavender (button-down top from Walmart) to bold colors like a mustard cardigan (Walmart), turquoise scarf (Five Below), and purple coat (Kenneth Cole). They’re dressy enough to wear to my office.
Lee Jeans recently sent me a pair of their Easy Fit black skinny jeans from the Platinum Label line. Not only are they super comfortable (they are made with 3% spandex which means they aren’t binding, but have lots of give), they also come in petite length which is great for shorties like me. Hurrah! It’s been a while since I’ve owned a pair of black jeans so I was excited to see how I could work them into my wardrobe. Turns out black skinny jeans are as versatile a blank palette as regular blue jeans and are suitable for my casual office or a night out!
Here are 10 ways to dress black skinny jeans up, or down. I’ve also created a Styling Black Skinny Jeans Pinterest board. I hope you’ll check it out!
1. Bold Color
I’m a big fan of black with pops of color. Check out these looks that are topped off with an amazing coat.
2. Animal Prints
From leopard to cheetah, animal prints never go out of style.
3. Top With Chambray
A simple classic chambray button down pairs well with a pair of black jeans.
4. Polka Dots
Polka dots are fun and whimsical in small doses.
5. Brown Or Camel Boots
Why had I never thought of wearing brown boots with black jeans before? They look great and I tried this look just this week along with a mustard cardigan over a gray t-shirt topped off with a teal infinity scarf.
A little edgier, casual street look is perfect for black jeans.
7. Classic Blazer
Blazers never go out of style and you can dress up your black skinny jeans with their clean lines.
8. With a Fun T-shirt
From unexpected sequins to a quirky saying, a fun t-shirt is great for pairing with black jeans.
9. With Stripes
Bold or subtle stripes are a great contrast to solid black.
10. Simple Elegant Blouse
A simple classic blouse is an elegant way to dress up your skinnies.
