I think one of the essentials to a good wardrobe is the perfect black skinny jean. And in order to find the one that fits you the best, you may have to invest in it. After going through pair after pair of black jeans over the years, I’ve found that paying a little extra for that perfect fit makes all the difference. So I’d like to share a few (hopefully) helpful tips on looking for that perfect pair.
First of all, why does a girl even need the “perfect pair” of black skinny jeans? My answer: you can dress it up or down, it goes with almost any kind of shoe from sneakers to boots, and they can flatter your legs. Many of the famous bloggers wear a pair or two (or ten), with a casual tee or, a flowy blouse, or a cool leather jacket. The combinations are endless.
When shopping for your new pair of black skinnies, make sure you have an idea of what kind of fit  or cut you want. If you tend to wear cropped tops, maybe a high-waisted fit is suited for you. Or if you like to wear heels, maybe a pair with a cropped hem. If you like wearing ankle boots, a longer hem might be better.
After you figure out which one is better suited for you in terms of fit, decide on a style. Do you think you’ll wear yours rough and casually? Or will you wear it in a more “formal” setting? Some styles may come with rips in the knees, so think back to the rest of your wardrobe and see what would match better with your clothing.
Lastly, choose a wash. You might think all black skinny jeans are just plain black, but some do come in lighter washes closer to a dark gray. Depending on the shade of black you choose, it can change the feeling of an entire outfit.

Did the tips help at all? Here are some of my favorite black skinny jeans from Shopbop to give you an idea:

The bad thing is that I have the perfect idea of what I want, but it's not available. =D I have no idea why are there so very few jeans with high waist . I had really nice jeans from Marks & Spencer with kind of subtle baroque "black on black" print, but they got torn (not on the right places) due to old age and biking. :/


Lovely post! Maybe we could follow each other on GFC and instagram @djonovic_milica? If yes, follow me and I follow back as soon as I see it.
