How to Wear Black Jeans

You Don't Need More Than Black and White to Look Really Good

We're currently in outfit-planning mode for Fashion Week, and while we can promise some more daring looks to make an appearance, there's nothing like a classic styling approach to keep things polished, effortless, and, most importantly, really easy — as in, crisp white pointed-collar blouse and black skinny jeans easy. Plus, it's one of those no-fail color combos that happens to be universally flattering and always in season. Thus, we're taking cues from some of our favorite street-style fixtures (think Emmanuelle Alt and Kate Moss), and sticking to the refined basics — all with a punchy shoe twist, of course. You can tuck in your blouse (or do the half-tuck thing), and if it's really cold, then layer up with a gray wool sweater and your Winter coat. Leave it to the accessories to make a little splash, and let the rest of the outfit be proof of your understatedly chic style.
