It’s been a minute since Jessica Biel has been spotted out and about wearing a denim outfit (this early January look was the last time). That changed over the weekend, and now she’s back to her usual outfit ways: skinny jeans and sneakers or ankle boots. (This time it’s the former.) Biel stepped out in NYC wearing the perfect casual-cool spring outfit: skinny jeans, Nike Air Jordan sneakers, a white T-shirt, and an oversize denim jacket. But instead of a classic Canadian tuxedo look, Biel went with a denim wash for her skinny jeans that we’ve noticed has been trending as of late: washed black. Instead of a rich, inky black-hue pair, a lighter faded pair that almost looks vintage is the perfect option to switch into your rotation for spring.
Denim brands are right in step with this growing skinny-jean trend, too. Favorites like Agolde, Re/Done, and Levi’s have been selling out of faded black skinny jeans recently, and thanks to its versatility across the seasons, we think the trend will continue to rise.
