Listen. We could wax poetic about denim trends for days. With the never-ending list of styles coming out season after season, how could we not? However, if there's one style we've had our eye on for a while now, it's dark-wash jeans. Don't get us wrong. Vintage-wash jeans and baby blues will always have a place in our hearts, but these darker hues make a case for a refreshing alternative.

Of all the different levels of denim washes these days, nothing feels more polished than a pair of dark-wash jeans. No matter what you style them with, whether it's minimalist, everyday basics or a chic blouse, you'll feel ready for anything, from daily errands to happy hour.

Ready to add this cool trend to your denim collection? Below, we've gathered the best dark-hued jeans to wear with everything you own.
