Girlfriend Flare Jeans Styling 101: The Original Black Jeans and T-Shirt Combo

Cool and Casual

Let’s begin with the classic: black denim flare pants with a classic cotton top in your color choice, timeless options; black or white. This fit sits above the waist, giving you a bit of smoothing in the midsection, which we all love. The flare of the jeans kicks out just below the knee, and makes you look extra tall and lean. Pair this look with some black heels or even with nude flats, you’ve got a monochromatic, everyday elevated look for running errands. Top this look with some statement earrings and a stunning purse!

Here’s an example from my own life: I wore this exact outfit last week for coffee and some light shopping, and it was a winner. I felt good and looked good, and the compliments rolled in. This look is casual enough for many casual occasions.

Strictly Official

Transitioning this look to the office is easy. The high waist and stretch of the jeans make it comfortable for long hours. Swap the casual cotton top for a long-sleeve button-down shirt. Tuck it into your jeans and belt it. Add office pumps or low heels and a handbag for a professional look.

I’ve worn this look to a Friday morning meeting and it’s my go-to for feeling good and put together, but still comfy and easy to transition into evening. Try it with this crisp non wrinkle white shirt for a clean easy look or go for a bold color for some flare.

Late Nights Out

Your black denim and white blouse can go from day to night. Here’s my trick: a half-tuck at the front or side of the blouse adds a bit of whimsy. Add gold layered necklaces, bracelets, and rings for glamour. The flare of the jeans is perfect for dancing. But wait, there’s more to see about how versatile these jeans are for all occasions.

I wore this outfit to a dinner recently and with a quick change of jewelry, I was ready for a night out. It’s versatile, pretty and so easy.

Denim on Denim on Denim

To mix things up, add another layer of denim or leather. A black denim jacket is balanced and great for playing with textures and colors. Think brown bag and shoes or a red accessory. For a stylish option, try wide-leg jeans to add a new shape to your look.

I wore this look for brunch one weekend and tied the jacket around my waist for a casual feel. It was a showstopper! Leather works too, especially with fringe for a cool, edgy or country look.

Hats Are Cool

Hats take your black denim and white top to the next level. Be a trendsetter with a fedora and chunky ankle boots or go urban with a baseball cap and sneakers. This look is effortless and fun for any age.

I wore a cowgirl hat and boots to a friend’s outdoor party and it was a winner. The right hat can change your whole outfit and your attitude.

Layer with Sweaters

For cooler evenings, layering a sweater over your outfit by either draping it, tying it, or wearing it classically is pretty and warm. Let a shirt collar peek out for a detail. This works with sweaters or V-neck vests and adds color or pattern. If you need a certain fit for your look, try sizing down or up to give you the desired end look.

Go French with Trench

Trenches are classic with black denim. Choose neutral colors and medium lengths to not overpower your jeans. Straight leg jeans are timeless and go with trench coats.

I wore my black silk trench and slingbacks for lunch recently. So sophisticated and easy, yet casual and stylish.


Black denim jeans are universal and work with any texture, style, material, or color. Add scarves, hats, a belt for extra fun. When it comes to jewelry, let your outfit be your guide.
