    Which shades of jeans combine with which color tops

    im having a slight problem combining dark jeans with appropiate tops. for really dark jeans (like almost black), what colors look best? for really light jeans, what colors look best. and finally for medium shaded jeans, what colors look best.
    also, i bought a pair of diesel karrat jeans yesterday and im concerned if they are too dark. since these are the only diesel pants that im gonna get (i cant really afford to spend 150 bucks everytime), i want them to be a good shade that will combine with a lot of things.
    another question. are rips better than no rips? because the diesel pants that i bought do not have any rips. i suppose it does depend on the look that im trying to go for, but would a few rips be beneficiary?

    Maybe you can put some pictures of yourself wearing these types of jeans, with tops you usually wear, and we can properly critique from there.
    As for suggestions on what to wear with those type of jeans, here are some:
    Dark Jeans: For the casual look, you can wear light colored tops. I tend to do this often; I usually wear dark jeans with white, light blue, earth tone green, and they go very well. If you want to try dark colored tops with dark colored jeans, make sure the shirt has some sort of design so it's not too bold with the dark colors; BUT if you're trying to go for the "professional" look, dark jeans, dark top, and dark shoes all compliment eachother to give you that "professional" edge. Depends on the situation.
    Light Jeans: I would suggest wearing dark tops. This is where you can wear dark tops, with little or no design on em. You can wear light jeans with light tops, it may look really good on some people, but I found that with my "dark" skin tone, it looks weird.
    Medium Jeans: I can almost wear anything and it will look fashionable. Dark shirts are fine with/without design; light shirts seem to go well with light shoes.
    If you can provide a picture, we can find stuff that suits you.

    the color that goes best with a pair of jeans depends on the wash. jeans go best with just about everything, but every diff wash has a color that it goes best with. generally, try to match the color of the wash to your clothes if you can. for example you'll see that some jeans have like almost a dirty(forgot what kind of wash this was. i think it had something to do with clay) wash. this would go best with brown b/c the dirt color matches the brown color. If your jeans have rips and holes in them, some jeans have differnet color rips. match that color to your clothes for another great effect.
    *edit*
    to give you an example, take a look at http://www.scoopnyc.com/jump.jsp?ite...ProductID=5482
    notice how the color of the jeans and the color of the holes compliments the shoes.

    Yeah I was thinking about this yesterday when I bought a pair white 7 For All Mankind jeans online yesterday. I know black and dark tops are going to go with them but I'm not sure what style shirt or shoes I'm gonna go with.
    All the high end clothing sites are showing white jeans for summer. I like em !
    Especially the "7 bootcut".
    Any thoughts ???

    i would personally avoid a black top with a white bottom. for a white pair of jeans in the spring/summer time, i'd go with a more colorful top. try it with a blue top(polo, tshirt, or a wrinkled casual button down) another thing you might want to try is a military-green colored top. I havent seen/tried this (i dont own a pair of white jeans, yet) but i think it would look good.
