What to Wear With: Grey Jeans

Continuing from yesterday’s denim discussion, back today with one more color conundrum. Grey jeans are another one that used to stump me! Sure, they’re easy to wear with neutrals – white, black, more grey, navy blue, burgundy, and even dark green. And they’re easy to dress down with a pair of sneakers. But how to keep them feeling fresh and feminine and prevent them from looking drab, especially when it’s still August?! Soft hues like blush pink, slate blue, and hints of purple are the answer!

As much as it pains me to admit it, I feel like summer is slipping right through our fingertips. The sun is setting noticeably earlier (a rude awakening when I got back from Italy!) and the calendar is a glaring reminder that fall is on the horizon. I saw this breezy tank in the prettiest pattern at Old Navy and knew it would be perfect for transitioning my outfits from summer to fall. It’s so feminine with the florals, but since the print is rooted in grey, it will last in your wardrobe longer than alfresco happy hours and backyard barbeques. In fact, how cute would it be under a jacket with a pair of slim navy pants at work?!

Old Navy jeans (that I’ve been wearing for years) have been updated again this fall and there’s a whole new slew of colors, cuts, and slimming fits! The grey jeans I’m wearing have built-in ‘Sculpt’ that helps to shape and define your curves and hold you in in all the right places. Sometimes sculpting jeans can feel so tough and rigid, but that’s not the case here – I was impressed to find that the jeans are just as soft and cozy as I expected them to be!

    Thanks for the tips. Grey jeans are difficult to style, especially for a summer look. I am bummed too that the sun is setting earlier; however, I am looking forward to a break from this heatwave.
