When we talk about jeans without mentioning the color, we are basically referring to blue jeans. In a sense, blue is the standard color of jeans, with black and white being the removed second and third colors. Which color belongs to fourth place? The answer isn’t clear, but in my opinion it’s the gray jeans. Although the gray jeans are not the most popular product, they look surprisingly good in combination with outfits of different styles. For this blog post, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ways to style those gray jeans. Now let’s look at the list.
White knitted sweater with gray jeans and a felt hat
I start with an artistic gray and white outfit that perfectly captures the soul of the gray jeans. For a feminine outfit, just wear a comfortable white knitted sweater with thin gray jeans. The details that really enhance the outfit are the brown suede ankle boots and the gray felt hat.
Beige blazer with gray blazer and gray cuffed jeans
I often feel that the gray jeans are not mentioned enough when it comes to business casual work outfits. Taking this professional-looking outfit as an example, the combination of a beige blazer with the gray skinny jeans with cuffs and the ballerinas simply results in a look that looks so comfortable. It has to be the warmer hue in the gray jeans and other pieces that make this outfit look so cozy compared to wearing something more serious like black dress pants and pencil skirts.
Wear it with a white button-up shirt and beige blazer
This outfit idea is meant to show that not only can you wear gray jeans with a t-shirt and blazer for a work outfit, but you can also look good with a shirt with a collar. Similar to the previous outfit idea, you can combine the jeans with a white shirt with buttons and a beige blazer. Black ballerinas would go perfectly with all parts.
Gray t-shirt & black leather jacket
Compared to some of the gray and white comfy looking outfits mentioned, this outfit is gray and black and looks cold and stylish. Power dressing, a general term used to describe how to dress like a powerful boss or manager, doesn’t always mean suits. As long as you know how to manipulate colors, you can wear a shirt and still look like a powerful boss. This outfit is a perfect example. Just wear a gray t-shirt and gray jeans with black ballet flats. The completely gray upper and lower part underlines the power of the black leather jacket that you wear over the T-shirt.
Gray t-shirt with a long cardigan
For a much friendlier look, you can wear a light gray t-shirt with the gray jeans. Instead of a black leather jacket, this time you can also wear a beige or cream colored long cardigan to give the outfit a feminine touch. Complete the outfit with a felt hat and heeled sandals.
Gray sweater with gray jeans and high boots
Now that we’ve mentioned some outfit ideas that use ankle boots and heels, let’s talk about one that uses one of my favorite pieces: the over-the-knee boots. Since black and gray look good together, it’s no surprise that the black thigh-high boots over gray jeans can make a good outfit. For the top, just wear a gray sweater.
Black and white striped sweater with leather jacket
For an artsy and chic look, wear a top with more detail and character. This black and white horizontally striped sweater is a perfect example of that. Pair it with a black leather jacket, gray jeans and black heels. This outfit really captures how gray jeans are in the middle of the “dark and cool” feel and the “light and casual” feel. Mediocrity is just bad for business or personal life, but when it comes to color, sometimes it’s what you want to achieve if you want to look good and still be low key.
White wool coat with gray skinny jeans
This outfit idea is perfect for winter work. An outfit that will keep you warm but not look chunky. For the top, wear a white knit sweater and a white wool coat over it. Pair them with gray skinny jeans and black suede boots.
Wear it with a white scoop neckline and a black blazer
For people who are absolutely confident that you can actually see success and confidence just by looking at them, it’s usually the easiest outfit to express their character. As an example, you can wear a white scoop neck t-shirt with gray jeans, a black blazer, and ballet flats. Basically, it’s a combination of a casual T-shirt and jeans with a black blazer. That’s it. The successful ones can really shine when they wear something that is so minimal. Think Steve Jobs.
Wear with a gray long sleeve t-shirt and statement necklace
This is a great example of how a statement necklace can upgrade an outfit that is too simple. The light gray long-sleeved T-shirt and gray jeans are probably a little too boring. This is not the case if you spice up the look with a statement necklace.
Gray jeans with a camouflage jacket and yellow heels
Warm colored pants like the gray jeans are probably the best way to style a brightly colored jacket like the camo jacket. The combination of camouflage jacket, white printed t-shirt and gray jeans looks really good for this outfit. But what really sets this outfit apart are the crazy, contrasting yellow heels. It’s just fun when I see an outfit with contrasting pieces that actually works.
Yellow sleeveless blouse & gray skinny jeans
Remember, the combination of yellow and gray or orange and gray will work. Most graphic designers will tell you that too. It’s just that you have to have the confident character when it comes to outfits in order not to look uncomfortable. This outfit consists of the yellow sleeveless blouse and the gray skinny jeans. You can see from the picture that it actually looks good. While I always recommend people try more things, outfits like this have to suit your character and you have to be your own judge.
