Maybe 2020 really hit you in the style department like it did me.  Can I confess I spent most of the year in sweatshirts and leggings? And I’m not just saying that. So in 2021, even if I won’t be going out I have a goal to up my fashion game and refine my style. Today we’re going to talk about how to wear black coated jeans.

Before we get into that though let’s clear up what black coated jeans are.

Coated jeans are pants make of tradition denim materials such as cotton, elastane, and polyester coated in a waxy substrate that allows them to look and feel like leather. This is a great option for vegans, those on a budget, or those looking for an alternative to pleather leggings. Plus they’re super comfortable. 

Because black coated jeans look like traditional leather pants they can be dressed up or down for many occasions. For instance, looking to have a casual yet classic look, just throw on a T-shirt with your coated jeans.  Need to dress up? Elevate your top and add some accessories.

Before I get too ahead of myself I’ve picked out 4 stylings of black coated jeans for different occasions.

If that’s not a look you’re going for consider simply pairing a casual top with your jeans, adding simple accessories and somewhat formal jacket- or maybe opt for a cute sweater. This pairing can give you the “I just dress effortlessly” vibe while looking appropriate for the event you’re attending.
