10 Ways to Style Black Skinny Jeans

Styling Black Jeans

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.

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.
