Dressing monochromatically is perfect for guys who want quick, effortless style. To make this look work, wear a black crew-neck T-shirt with black skinny jeans, and accessorize with a black fedora and combat boots. You’ll look tough yet on-trend.

2. At the office

Dress like a power player by mixing an all-black color palette with a pattern. Team black jeans with a black patterned dress shirt, choosing a small, muted pattern such as stripes, dots, or checks. Add a black sports jacket and black Chelsea boots for a smart-casual look that takes just a few seconds to put together.

3. Off-duty style

Styling black jeans with a chambray shirt helps create an easy-to-wear, everyday look. It’s a great go-to outfit for weekend activities such as going to brunch, seeing a movie, or visiting the park. Pull this look off by wearing your black jeans with a denim shirt, and then layer a gray sweatshirt on top. Add brown leather chukka boots, and finish with simple accessories like a hat, watch, and glass to add interest to the otherwise simple look.

4. Date night

Dress with confidence by wearing your black jeans with a white, crisp shirt and a sweater or cardigan layered on top. The dress shirt and sweater have to fit you perfectly to get this look right. Team this up with white canvas sneakers and a gray cotton jacket for a casual outing. If your occasion is more formal, exchange the sneakers for black penny loafers and add a tie to the dress shirt.

5. Lazy Sunday
