I have to be honest with you, I haven’t been very good at paring my closet down to my Minimal Closet standards. Part of the problem is that we are still mid closet remodel and I don’t have a good way to keep track of my clothes, but I think if I take it one item at a time, I can make it work. I’ve had a big response to my first minimal closet post, so I’m going to take you along on my journey.
The first item I’m sharing is the black jean, or black denim, or whatever you’d like to call them. I wear black jeans 99% of the time. They seem to go with anything effortlessly, and are very flattering for me.
The Acne Studios Flex Black Jeans I purchased while shopping during our trip to Copenhagen in July of 2013. I wear them regularly and they are still in almost perfect condition. The mid-rise cut and black color is very forgiving. I should probably have them hemmed because the inseam is a little long for me, but I honestly don’t want to give them up for the couple of days it would take. The J.Crew Reid Jean in Black is similar in that it is a mid-rise and straight leg. I’ve paired my black denim with everything from a blazer and loafers to an oversized sweater and boots.
How would you style your black jeans? Would you wear them often?
