Your lifestyle, your quirk
Denim jeans of all kinds are still going strong in the world of fashion. Several styles of blue jeans have gotten extra attention and a little more time in the limelight, but the rule of thumb is if it’s denim, it’s in style. For spring/summer 2012, we are seeing saw an explosion of color in the denim world, and now things are fading to black.
Bright, pastel, and neon colors are still in and so are all kinds of prints, but if you still want more variety in your jeans, consider adding a pair of your favorite jean in black to your warm weather wardrobe. Black jeans are not exactly new to fashion scene; they pop in and out over the years, and this year’s timing works well with several of the other trends we are seeing, especially the retro ones.
No matter what is going on as far as trends, you can never go wrong with black as far as most garments, shoes, and accessories go. Like most fashionistas, I have quite a bit of black in my wardrobe, but I am a purist about some things. I usually stick to basic blue for denim, but I agree the color black is a nice alternative or addition to the mix.
The choices for styles and cuts can be a bit overwhelming, so to narrow things down you may want to simply choose a pair of your favorite jeans in black or with a black over-dyed effect. All of the basic and the latest jean styles are represented in black denim, like skirts, shirts, and shorts. There are also several shoe sources working this trend. Nike has a very cool sneaker and I am sure a little shopping will turn up lots more options for you to check out.
I will probably sit this trend out, but my choice would be easy, a basic cut like boot leg, boyfriend or straight leg. But trust me you won’t have to look far, because if your favorite is an existing blue jean style you can find it in black, just take your pick; Capri, low-rise, cropped, high waist and flares are all available this season. Black denim is available for fashionistas of all shapes and sizes, male and female, including mommies to be.
You can also get all of the same cool denim textile and fabrication effects in black denim. There is a whole “rainbow” of black. You can go from ink or true black to faded colors that look almost gray. Distressed, dark wash and tie-dyed are also options. What’s best about this trend is you don’t have to change a thing as far as what to wear with it; all of the same tops, shoes, and accessories that work with your blue jeans look great with all of the jean styles done in black.
