How To Wear Black Jeans For 5 Days, In 5 Different Ways (PHOTOS)

Black jeans are a staple in every girl's closet. Ever since Emmanuelle Alt in all her stylish glory took the reins at French Vogue, we've seen her out and about cutting a tres chic silhouette in her slim jeans. So for our five days challenge story we decided to give it a whirl, and it proved almost as tricky as styling a bold skirt.

The thing is, you can't really make black jeans look all that different. But that doesn't mean you can't style them to the hilt, which we did by layering, layering and more layering. We went for the obvious looks -- blazers and oxford blouses -- but we also played with the cuffs of the pants to take the looks from casual to evening. The most important tip when wearing such a basic piece is to add bold accents, whether in the form of a neon belt, a bright bag in a primary color or a touch of animal print. Chunky jewelry is the cherry on top, and we loved how our subject (our beloved intern Jada Wong) customized the pieces herself. Check out how we styled basic black denim, and tell us in the comments section below how you would wear them?
