Call us lazy, but we’re firm believers in the jeans-with-everything approach to getting dressed, and black denim is the easy closet classic we fall back on season after season. 

Far from boring, we love that you can make the darkest wash work for you no matter were you’re headed—on a date, out to brunch…heck, we’ll rock a pair in the office if you give us half a chance. There’s no wrong way to wear them, and you can never have too many pairs.  

To help us with our desire to wear denim every day of the week and get away with it, we’re looking to the experts of denim - Nobody Denim (and we’ve taken some sartorial cues from our favourite fashion muses) to bring you seven powerful black denim looks from their new Power Blk range for every day, and every occasion. Thanks to Nobody, you’ll never have 7am-wardrobe-freak-out again.
