Fusing a dark with a light denim can get tricky, but the key to success is to break up the harsh contrast of denims with a strong solid color. Match your dark denim pant with a denim shirt of a lighter wash. Then, throw on a bold-toned jacket, dress boot and watch. Pretty easy, right? RIGHT!

For our final look, we put something together for the male who desires edge! For this gent, we chose the super popular skinny dark denim trouser.

If you are looking to enhance your edge factor, always remember that it isn’t about what you wear but, how you wear it! With that in mind, we opted for our edgy gent to dabble with dimension and pattern. Coupling your skinny dark denims with a fitted dress shirt and oversized beanie and boot is the way to go. For additional panache, we gave him an awesome Vivianne Westwood wrap skirt to place around his waist. Hey! If Jaden Smith can do it, so can you!

Now, go get a head start on Fall and snag those dark denims, early!
