We know you love your basic blue jeans—we love them too! Shake things up and add some variety to your wardrobe by giving gray denim a try. Like blue jeans, they’re easy to style and pair with everything.
Have we piqued your interest? Here’s how to style gray denim.
Pick Your Shade of Gray
Not only is gray denim trending, but it also comes in a variety of shades from dark charcoal to light heathered gray for maximum variety. You can’t go wrong with whatever wash you choose. Gray denim makes rich fall tones pop, and in the summer, gray denim complements light and airy hues. If neutrals are your go-to, you’re in luck; pair gray denim with black, white or taupe year-round.
Stylist Tip: Light gray complements pretty spring tones—wear your jeans with blush, sea-foam green or dusty blue for subtle contrast. Pairing these same colors with dark gray denim creates high color contrast.
Pair Gray with Shades of Blue
Sure, gray denim looks great with every color, but it also can be paired with just about anything you own, including other denim. Dive into a denim-on-denim look with classic chambrays or your trusty denim jacket.
- For your first foray into denim on denim, keep it simple by pairing gray jeans with a blue chambray. Add a pair of camel-colored mules, roll up your sleeves and front-tuck your top to play up a casual, cool vibe.
- Instead of a blue denim jacket, reach for one in gray to revamp and refresh your look. Pair it with white skinnies, a soft tee and a pair of casual sneakers.
- Go all in by layering: start with a chambray shirt, then layer a denim jacket on top and pair with gray jeans. Choose different hues to create dimension.
Go All Gray
Going monochromatic doesn’t mean having to wear all black. Layering shades of gray will update your solitary color effect. Give dark gray jeans a try with a heathered gray tee, and layer on a light gray chunky knit cardigan or wool jacket. Complete your look with a pair of gray suede booties.
