Take a peek into any fashion girl's closet, and we're willing to bet she owns at least one pair of black jeans. They're the building blocks to some of the best street style outfits, and denim's versatility is what makes it timeless. Black jeans, especially, can be worn with sweaters, ruffled tops, red boots, and just about anything you can name. But like all basics, sometimes we get a little tired of our go-to pair. If you're stuck in a style rut with your black bottoms, we found some simple ways to rework the look. They don't require much effort, as the street style stars ahead can attest to. And if you're searching for new black denim styles, we have some options picked out just for you.
