Black Denim

On days when you feel like something different or a little less casual, a pair of black denim makes for a cool, contemporary alternative to your faded and washed denim or workaday chinos. Look for slimmer, tapered styles with little to no embellishments. They're more versatile than you might think. It's a sleek, minimalist style that's still relaxed enough to wear with your go-to tees, denim shirts or hoodies. Of course, they can at times look a bit extreme, so make sure to pair yours with light-colored neutrals on top.
