When we talk about jeans without mentioning the color, we basically are referring to blue jeans. In a sense, blue is the standard color of jeans, with black and white being the distant second and third. What color belongs to the fourth place? The answer is not a clear cut one, but in my opinion, it is the grey jeans. Although not being the most popular item, the grey jeans actually look surprising good when put together with outfits of different styles. For this blog post, I have gathered some of my favorite ways to style the grey jeans. Let’s check out the list now.
White Knit Sweater with Grey Jeans & Felt Hat
I am starting off with an artistic grey-and-white outfit that perfectly captures the soul of the grey jeans. As a feminine outfit, simply wear a white knit comfy sweater with skinny grey jeans. The details that really upgrade the outfit is the brown suede ankle boots and the grey felt hat.
Beige Blazer with Grey Blazer & Cuffed Grey Jeans
I often feel that the grey jeans are not mentioned enough when it comes to business casual work outfits. Using this professional looking outfit as an example, pairing a beige blazer with the cuffed grey skinny jeans and ballet heels simply creates a look that is so comfortable looking. It must be the warmer color tone in the grey jeans and other pieces that make this outfit look so cozy compared to wearing something more serious such as black dress pants and pencil skirts.
Wear with White Button Up Shirt & Beige Blazer
This outfit idea is here to show that not only you can wear grey jeans with t shirt and blazer for a work outfit, they can look good with a collar shirt too. Similar to the previous outfit idea, you can pair the jeans with a white button up shirt and a beige blazer. Black ballet heels would match all the pieces perfectly.
Grey Tee & Black Leather Jacket
Compared to some of the grey-and-white comfortable looking outfits mentioned, this outfit is a grey-and-black one that looks cold and stylish. Power dressing, a common express to describe the way to dress like a powerful boss or manager, doesn’t always mean suits. Indeed, as long as you know how to manipulate colors, you can wear a t shirt and still looks like a powerful boss. This outfit is a perfect example. Simply wear a grey t shirt and grey jeans with black ballet heels. The all-grey top and bottom are for emphasizing the power in the black leather jacket you wear over the t shirt.
Grey Tee with Long Cardigan
For a much more friendly look, you can wear a light grey tee with the grey jeans. But instead of a black leather jacket, this time you can wear a beige or cream long cardigan for to add a feminine touch to the outfit. For more uniqueness, complete the outfit with a felt hat and heeled sandals.
Grey Sweater with Grey Jeans & Thigh High Boots
Having mentioned quite a few outfit ideas that uses the ankle boots and heels, let’s talk about one that uses one of my favorite items: the thigh high boots. Since black and grey do look good together, it is not a surprise that the black thigh high boots over grey jeans can be a good outfit. For the top, simply wear a grey sweater.
Black and White Striped Sweater with Leather Jacket
For an artistic and chic look, try wear a top with more detail and character. This black and white horizontal striped sweater is a perfect example of that. Pair it with a black leather jacket, grey jeans and black heels. This outfit really captures how grey jeans lie at the middle of the “dark and cool” feel and the “light and casual” feel. Mediocrity simply sucks in terms of business or life, but when comes to colors, it sometimes is what you want to achieve when you want to look good yet remain low key.
White Wool Coat with Grey Skinny Jeans
This outfit idea is one that is perfect to wear to work in the winter, an outfit that keeps you warm but don’t look clunky. For the top, wear a white knit sweater and a white wool coat over it. Pair them with grey skinny jeans and black suede ankle boots.
Wear with White U Neck Tee & Black Blazer
For people that are absolutely confident to an extend that you can actually see success and confidence by just looking at them, it usually takes them the simplest outfit to express their character. As a example, you can wear a white u neck t shirt with grey jeans, a black blazer and ballet flats. We are basically looking about a casual t shirt and jeans combination with the addition of a black blazer. That’s it. The successful ones can really shine wearing something that minimal. Think Steve Jobs.
Wear with Long Sleeve Grey Tee & Statement Necklace
This is a good example of how a statement necklace can upgrade an overly simple outfit. The light grey long sleeve t shirt and grey jeans are probably just a little too boring. That is not the case when you spice up the look with a statement necklace.
Grey Jeans with Camo Jacket & Yellow Heels
Pants with warm color like the grey jeans are probably the best way to style a colorful jacket like the camo jacket. For this outfit, the camo jacket, white print tee and grey jeans combination really looks good. But what make this outfit really stand out is the crazy contrasting yellow heels. It is just fun when I see outfit with contrasting pieces put together that actually works.
Yellow Sleeveless Blouse & Grey Skinny Jeans
Remember, the yellow-and-grey or the orange-and-grey combination does work. Most graphic designers will tell you that too. It’s just that when it comes to outfits, you need to have the confident character in you to not look awkward. This outfit consists of the yellow sleeveless blouse and the grey skinny jeans. You can see from the picture that it actually looks nice. Although I always recommend people to try more things, outfits like this needs to match with your character and you have to be your own judge.
