All posts must be requesting or giving advice 3. P Anyway, I recently purchased some black boots for wearing in winter yes, I know it's summer right now. I'm wearing faded black skinnies and black boots right now. If I did get another pair of boots, it would be these in pavement In this mirror selfie outfit above, I paired my black jeans with a super light cream sweater and oversized grey cardigan.
It always looked just fine to me, and it can definitely look great. Here are a few examples. At the very least, I think it tends to look a lot better than black jeans and brown boots, a combination that seems generally accepted and recommended! I see there are many posts in the comments getting downvoted with no replies.
If you're going to downvote, at least explain your point of view and where you disagree! MFA's opinion on colours is very limiting and usually straight up just wrong, esp concerning the color black which MFA has this bizarre relationship with thanks to a couple of really shitty guides made in that are still on the sidebar.
Homeboy spent so much time writing that essay about how black isn't versatile. His girlfriend probably left him for some dude that goes completely murdered out 7 days of the week. My current girlfriend's first statement upon entering my bedroom was: Christ that comment on why black is bad is so wrong. Straight up so much crap spouted in the comment. It's true that MFA isn't great with colour. Well they're not bad with it in practise, it's just a lot of extremely untrue advice is given regarding colours that gets regurgitated around and called "common knowledge".
I do think black boots look good with blue jeans, but for some reason I hate all black sneakers with dark blue jeans. Probably because black boots with blue jeans has been a statement since the 50's and black sneaks and indigo jeans don't have that going for them. Agreed, black does go with everything. But I think while black will never be wrong per se there will frequently be better options.
If the choice is there I will almost always go for a brown shoe with dark blue jeans. But saying that a black shoe is wrong is just incorrect. I even like the contrast of a black dressy oxford with an otherwise casual outfit occasionally.
If you have one pair of shoes with an otherwise balanced wardrobe, color wise, then black is clearly the best option. Dark wash jeans and black Chelseas is what I'm wearing right now. Can't really go wrong with this.
If the Chelsea boots are more on the formal side and the jeans are lighter wash or quite distressed, then I can see it possibly not working, but on the basis of mismatched formality. Black and blue any shade, essentially look great to me! I think most people would look at something like this and say black doesn't look terrible but is not the best choice. I would believe that a lot of the users on this site simply feel that way about most outfits. Black is good in the fall when you want a darker tone to your look, I just think all the pros of black can be found in other colors and then some.
Actually, I'd say black boots can look great as well. But they won't age as well as brown boots. Same holds true for leather jackets, imho.
I'm glad this thread exists, I just ordered a pair of Doc Martens and was beginning to wonder what I'd wear with them. Agreed with most of the comments here. I agree with Shannon that black and brown together is a great combination. Go ahead and wear them. I never have developed an eye for black and brown together, so black on black is fine by me! Of course that may also be my goth tendencies You can achieve a really interesting effect of different textured layers if you keep things within the same color family.
Outfits Ensembles Trends Advice. I wear this formula all the time including today! Well, I figured contrast would be better, but if black on black works, that's good enough for me I will have to do a pic with the brown boots and see what you guys think.
Omg it will be so fab with the wite jacket! One continuous color lengthens the leg line. Also, it's a classic look. I like black and brown together. Totally works, you have everything you need, Yay!
