Basics Series: Black Jeans

blackonblack3 copy.jpg

Back to Basics is a regular series focused on how to wear and where to buy the 50 most important – and perhaps only – items you need in your wardrobe.  

I pull pieces from my Capsule Wardrobe – my preferred tactic for streamlining your personal style. 

What

Black denim jeans 

Why 

The color goes with anything you can possibly think to pair with them. Also while blue denim has a workwear association,  black jeans have artsy roots that make them the creative's uniform. 

When 

I live in black jeans in fall and winter (and even in the cool spring months in Berlin, New York, and Chicago where I spend most of my time). 

I only need one pair at a time and wear them for years – usually keep them until they fade out to a lovely ashen gray.
