Capsule Wardrobe List: Black Jeans
Back to Basics is a personal style series centered around the capsule wardrobe list. It is focused on how to wear and where to buy the most important items you need in your closet.
CAPSULE WARDROBE LIST
In each post I style one item from the capsule wardrobe list in various ways and provide recommendations on where to buy it, what to look for (especially fit, fabrication, and color), and how to care for it. In this post I discuss black jeans.

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.
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.
