Black jeans outfit ideas for fall, winter, spring and summer

Emma Roberts and Selena Gomez both wear a black jeans outfit with a  tan top over a black t-shirt. Two key takeaways  from these outfits – the color combination of black with a neutral color and a long outer top. I’ve decided to use their outfits as inspiration and kick it up a bit by adding accessories for a touch of color.

I like the idea of wearing a long outer top because it is a great way to add interest to an all black jeans outfit. The length can add movement (depending on the fabric) and can look great – especially with some kinds of jeans and some shoe types. If you are petite, the long top would look best if it ended no lower than the knee to keep it from drowning your small frame. I’ll get into that more further down the page!

Black Jeans outfit Color Theme

Since I am using the black jeans outfits  worn by Emma Roberts and Selena Gomez for inspiration, I will pretty much stick with neutral colors that provide some contrast with the black jeans – that is tan, beige, gray etc.  But I thought it would be fun to play with fabric weights, colors of the outer top and discuss shoes that could be worn with the black jeans outfits as well.

 

Black Jeans and a Black Top – The  Outfit Foundation

Black jeans and tops cam have different levels of color saturation. You can stick with a matching saturation in your top and jeans or use the difference in  the saturation level of your top and jeans as a design element.

For the close-fitting silhouette of these outfit ideas, a straight-leg jean or skinny jean would work best. With that in consideration, close-fitting tops are worn with the jeans. That doesn’t mean the black top or black jeans have to be skin-tight – just more fitted.

Black Jeans Outfit Ideas for Spring and Summer

 

Spring/summer tops to wear with black jeans

The loose flowy fabric of a duster or loose smock worn with wedge or heeled sandals is a chic look for spring or summer. I like this look especially with skinny or slim-fitting jeans.

Of course what the temperature is in spring and summer depend on location and evenings may be cool enough for a light open topper or duster made from linen, chiffon, cotton gauze or an open crochet knit fabric.  Your vertical body type and your height can be a consideration in choosing the length of the topper worn with the black jeans outfit. Petite figures look best in toppers that end at the knee or above. If you have a short torso, any topper that ends below hip level will elongate your torso. (If you have a long torso you can either wear a topper that ends above hip level or wear a light color t-shirt with high waisted/high-rise black jeans ).

Shoes to wear with the spring/summer Black Jeans outfit

You can wear nude shoes or you can wear black shoes to match the color of your black jeans outfit . Bonus! – both of these shoe colors will make your legs look longer. To kick the elongation up a notch, wear heels. Try warm weather heels such as heeled sandals,  open-toed shoes or wedges.

Wear Cropped black jeans

Spring and summer you can vary your black jeans outfit by wearing cropped black jeans. Since cropped jeans shorten the leg, nude heels are a great way to elongate your legs in cropped jeans.

Colorful bangles are a great way to add color accents to a neutrals themed black jeans outfit. I also like silver statement pieces like wide cuff bracelets. The gleam of the silver jewelry will be showcased against the neutral and black colors.

Black Jeans Outfit Ideas for Fall

There’s nothing like having a long cardigan or sweater as part of your cool weather wardrobe. Stylistically and practically – this should be a staple. A deep camel or rich tan will contrast nicely with the black color of the jeans and top.  In contrast, a gray color outerwear is more muted but will show off the accessories that add color that much better.

Handbags have always been more than a means to carry belongings. A handbag can add that extra something an outfit may need. A colorful handbag can do just that for a black jeans outfit with neutral colors.

Black Jeans Outfit Ideas for Winter

A great thing about winter – from a fashion standpoint – is the opportunity to layer.  Consequently, when the weather really turns cold, all you have to do is add an overcoat to the fall look.

You can simply add an overcoat to the fall outfit. Go for basic black or a  neutral color or a coat in a rich color such as burgundy.

A black ankle boot will not only look nice with this black jeans outfit but in effect add height and lengthen the appearance of your legs. There is an unbroken line of color from the jeans to your shoe and as a result this will give you a chic and leggy look.
