This year I made it a goal of mine to figure out my style, find clothes that can be worn with many different pieces. Pieces that will last me years and years.
One style that I am still a bit apprehensive about styling is black items paired with denim jeans. Whether it be a black top, a black jacket or black shoes. I’ve just never been able to wear them with denim jeans. I can’t even wear black bags with a denim outfit.
I think it all comes from when I was younger. On a Friday night after school I’d sometimes stay at my grandparents house and if we’d forgotten to pack shoes for Saturday I’d have to walk about all day wearing my school shoes. Which were black. Which lead to me hating the pairing.
Don’t get me wrong I think the style looks great on everyone else. You see some girls styling it so well and it looks great. But on me I’m just not to sure.
With that said I did want to try and style it and share it on the blog. As lets face it, it looks okay and it’s fun to share new outfits.
I’ve went easy to begin with and styled my trusty Madewell Jeans with my Sezane black knitted jumper and my River Island Ankle boots. For once I actually like this pairing. I think because the denim of the jeans is a little on the darker side, which makes the pairing work. Its not to contrasting which I like. This is enough to start easing into the style. I will defiantly be trying to style more looks with black and denim.. but just don’t expect it to be all the time. I’m still not 100% convinced.
