Revamp Your Wardrobe Staples with Black Jeans

I love my new black jeans that I found for $10 at Forever 21 (yep...$10!), I've been wearing them a ton and I feel like they are such a classic staple yet make a bold impact. Like the other day I didn't know what to wear for a day-trip home so I threw them on with neutral flats and a classic pinstripe oxford button down and voila! Cute outfit in under 5 minutes. 

If you're a regular reader of this blog then you'll know that I've been wanting a pair of black jeans for some time (and have blogged about how much I love these), and I'm so happy to have a pair to add to my wardrobe. I've been loving finding new ways to wear them and I definitely feel like they're a great and understated way to spice up my outfits that I'd normally wear regular denim with.

how black denim can revamp your wardrobe

Shirt: Old \\ Jeans: Forever 21 \\ Shoes: Steve Madden (similar) \\ Necklace: Gift \\ Bracelets: Ralph Lauren Outlet & J.Crew Factory (similar) \\ Sunglasses: Ray-Bans

For me, black denim has been a great way to get more use and more outfit possibilities out of my current wardrobe. If you are looking for a way to revamp your current wardrobe without spending a ton of money I'd highly recommend investing in a pair of black jeans. (Forever 21 and Express has some great options! :D)

For another way I styled them check out this post! :)

What are your go-to pieces when you're in a wardrobe slump?


  1. i love how the black jeans added a touch of edginess to the look, so cute! also, what a gorgeous spot for photos! that sunshine looks wonderful :)

    1. Thanks! I definitely feel cool when i wear them ;) It's a sandbar on the river in my hometown. In the summer it was all green, I'd never been there in the winter before though.

  2. Black denim are the best and forever always have good deals. One of my favorite stores to shop at.

    Love the outfit! I can definitely wear that to work just not in todays weather without a nice sweater here in Nyc.

    My go to pieces are my white tops.


    1. Thanks! Oooh, I bet it's cold up there. It's a nice 70 here :) I'm really enjoying it. Yeah Forever 21 has had some good deals lately...but you have to really search to find them so I rarely shop there. So glad I decided to the other day though :)

  3. Black denim, seriously make any outfit more "formal" looking in my opinion. Loved the striped shirt as well :)


  4. I had a pair of black jeans from F21 that I loved and they shrunk (the worst!). I need to buy a new pair, I really love how you styled yours!

    1. Aw that sucks. Yeah, I'm scared mine will fade because of the quality (I'm guessing for $10 it's not the best) so I try to avoid putting them in the dryer...

  5. I got a pair of black jeans from there for 10 bucks once too and they were my favorite pair of pants for a while! I just came across your blog and I look forward to following along!
