With thousands of types of jeans out there, there’s always pressure to make sure you’re up on the newest denim trends. But forget all the bells and whistles, and focus on the minimal for now. I’m talking, of course, about black denim. It can feel hard to find a good pair of black denim with just the right super-dark color—or alternatively, perfectly faded wash. But it’s worth the hunt, because black denim is easy to pair with just about anything, and can even be dressed up thanks to the fact that its dark shade lends an extra level of sophistication to basic denim.
To help you in your search for this versatile style, we’ve rounded up our favorite black denim for fall in the gallery, below.
