There are so many gorgeous variations of your traditional blue or indigo washed jeans out there, but my favorite shade lately has been a washed, or faded, black. Dark denim, especially black, is normally seen as a Fall shade, but I honestly love it year round. When it comes to black jeans, most people don’t think much in terms of variation…black is black, right? This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Last Fall, I published a post featuring my favorite dark grey and faded black jeans out there, and since this last month I found myself drooling over this shade again I decided I’d pay the topic a revisit.
I love perusing Ebay for a new pair of jeans, since it opens the doors to denim from years past as well as offers the opportunity to find a pair with that coveted well-worn, broken in feel and look. I snatched up a pair of washed black Frame ‘Le Skinny de Jeanne’ Jeans in a black that I’m pretty sure is washed out from being worn and loved, and they are perfect! Of course, if you aren’t partial to pre-owned jeans, the market is full of super cute black jeans with the same, or similar, washed-out looks. Many of these come with new unique detailing, such as the lace-up and eyelet details of the Hudson Stevie Lace Up Skinny Jean in Black Coated and 7 For All Mankind Bair Ankle Skinny Jeans in Black, or eye-catching cuts like the Nili Lotan Ena Jeans in Smoke Wash or 3×1 W2 Split Seam Bell Jeans in Black Stone, all shown below.
