Ladies, the magical wonders of the color black are certainly not lost on you at this point, as women are often informed quite early in life that "a little black goes a long way." Not only is it incredibly slimming and flattering, but black also is one of the few colors that successfully complements practically all hues. With jeans now available in so many different colors and washes, you might be curious to know which ones look best with a black shirt.
Ladies, before you are transported back to the denim horrors of acid wash (which are currently back in style), take a deep breath, because light wash denim doesn't only include acid wash, but other light denim hues as well. There are colors that are so light they look almost white, washes that fall in the medium-light category and those that have distinct designs/patterns like marble, mineral and the aforementioned acid wash. The great thing about all of these light denim washes is that they all look fabulous with a black top in your chosen style.
Colors on the darker spectrum of this denim wash often mimic pants or trousers because of the deep, intense hue that is commonly found in traditional pants. But, jeans with a dark blue tone are not the only ones that complement a black top. Medium wash jeans also look quite fabulous as well. A medium blue denim wash is a fashionable happy medium between dark and light, and it's arguably the best representation of the color of true denim. In spite of its considerably modest tone, it doesn't fade into the background when paired with a black top, which makes it an essential jean color to have in your closet.
For all the ladies with big personalities who love a fashion challenge, a pair of bright-colored jeans are just the item to have in your closet when you want to amp up the drama and have a little fun with fashion. All colors of the rainbow are represented in denim, with shades like red, yellow, hot pink, orange, cobalt blue and Kelly green largely dominating runways, red carpets and editorial spreads. Due to the overpowering nature of jeans in vivid shades, it's important that you keep the rest of your outfit subtle so you don't run the risk of appearing overdone. This is where a fierce black top comes into play very nicely because it balances out the extreme shade of your lower half.
Ah yes, the classic shade of black denim is chic and edgy, and when paired with a matching black top you have a look that instantly screams rock star. Black on black is not only an incredibly slimming look, but it also creates a nice silhouette that flatters many varying body types. If you think the combination of black jeans and a black top is a little too boring, break things up by choosing black denim with a distressed element that usually incorporates an accompanying shade of gray. Quick tip: for an additional burst of color, slip on a fierce pair of red heels.
