Nothing gives me more satisfaction than slipping into a pair of black high-rise skinnies. I love them because they give me an immediate confidence boost, go with everything, and are foolproof chic.

I have a few rules when picking out denim: 1) They must be high-rise. This is my #1 requirement because high-rise denim is insanely flattering. Plus, high-rise styles go with every top length, cropped or not. 2) They must have ample stretch, but not stretch out by the end of the day. I’m still trying to look cute for happy hour after wearing them for eight hours. 3) They must have some level of distressing because it’s laid back, adds interest, and just looks cool.

Enter the pair that meets all my requirements: PacSun High Rise Ankle Jeggings

I paired them with a crop tee (refer to rule #1), star earrings, and the cutest mini backpack. I’ve been using the backpack as my purse ever since it arrived. I can’t stop pointing out its cuteness to all of my friends that see me with it! Seriously, how cute?

I like to think of this look as my back-to-school outfit, the adult version. Cheers to my new favorite pair of black denim. I’ll likely wear them again tomorrow because that’s how I roll.
