When we talk about jeans without mentioning the color, we are basically referring to blue jeans. In a way, blue is the standard color of jeans, with black and white being the distant second and third colors. What color goes with fourth place? The answer is not clear, but in my opinion it is 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 these gray jeans. Now let’s look at the list.

I start with an artistic gray and white outfit that perfectly captures the soul of gray jeans. For a feminine outfit, simply wear a comfy white knit sweater with skinny gray jeans. The details that really elevate the outfit are the brown suede ankle boots and the gray felt hat.

I often feel that the gray jean doesn’t get enough mention when it comes to business casual work outfits. Taking this professional looking outfit as an example, pairing a beige blazer with the gray cuffed skinny jeans and the ballet flats just gives 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.

This outfit idea aims 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 great with a collared shirt. Similar to the previous outfit idea, you can pair the jeans with a white button down shirt and a beige blazer. Black ballerinas go perfectly with all pieces.
Gray t-shirt and black leather jacket

Compared to some of the mentioned gray and white comfortable looking outfits, this outfit is gray and black and looks cold and classy. Power dressing, a general term describing how to dress like a powerful boss or manager, doesn’t always mean suits. As long as you know how to manipulate color, you can wear a shirt and still look like a powerful boss. This outfit is a perfect example. Simply wear a gray t-shirt and gray jeans with black ballet flats. The all gray top and bottom emphasizes the power of the black leather jacket you wear over the t-shirt.
Gray t-shirt with long cardigan

For a much friendlier look, you can wear a light gray t-shirt with the gray jeans. This time, instead of a black leather jacket, you can wear a beige or cream long cardigan to add a feminine touch to the outfit. Complete the outfit with a fedora and heeled sandals.
Gray sweater with gray jeans and high boots

After mentioning a few 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 black thigh high boots worn over gray jeans can make a great outfit. For the top, simply wear a gray sweater.
Black and white striped sweater with leather jacket

For an artistic and chic look, wear a top with more details and character. This black and white horizontal 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 amidst the “dark and cool” feel and the “bright and casual” feel. Mediocrity is only 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 while still being understated.

This outfit idea is perfect for winter work. An outfit that will keep you warm without looking bulky. 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 casual t-shirt and jeans combo with a black blazer. That’s it. The successful can really shine when wearing something so minimal. Think Steve Jobs.
Wear it with a gray long sleeve t-shirt and a statement necklace

This is a great example of how a statement necklace can elevate an outfit that is too simple. The light gray long sleeve t-shirt and gray jeans are probably a bit too boring. This is not the case when you spice up the look with a statement necklace.
Gray jeans with a camouflage jacket and yellow heels

Warm pants like the gray jeans are probably the best way to style a colorful jacket like the camo jacket. The combination of camouflage jacket, white printed t-shirt and gray jeans goes really well with this outfit. But what really makes this outfit stand out are the crazy contrasting yellow heels. It’s just fun when I see an outfit with contrasting pieces that actually works.
Yellow sleeveless blouse and gray skinny jeans

Remember that the combination of yellow and gray or orange and gray works. 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 awkward. This outfit consists of the yellow sleeveless blouse and gray skinny jeans. You can see in the picture it actually looks good. While I always recommend people try more things, outfits like this have to fit your character and you have to be your own judge.
