In my world, gray goes unnoticed. As a lover of all things color I often gravitate towards bright hues and blacks when I’m toning things down. Apparently I’ve been missing out because not only is the color gray simply chic, but it is also a great neutral. Here is how to wear an all gray outfit without looking washed out.
Monochromatic looks are very easy to style. Simply pick a color and accessorize in the same or slightly different tone of the chosen hue. When dressing in a bright color, it’s safe to stick with the same tone (as seen here). With gray, however, it is wise to switch between light and dark. I accomplished this with a stone top, a slate bottom, and dual-tone shoes. I just so happened to have a gray manicure (and need a fresh one tomorrow), but nail polish and lip color is a nice way to offset the uniform color scheme.
Now let’s talk outfit details… the Velvet Bud Skirt is full of personality. The fabric is luxurious, and the tassel trim is extraordinary! Speaking of “basics with a twist,” this ribbed sweater qualifies as one. Score! I found the Mary Jane shoes for about $30 on Amazon and I really like how they pulled together the contrasting gray tones. Earlier I mentioned accenting your look with your makeup. If you dare to be bare, a fashionable cellphone case can have the same effect. I found this rustic floral one at Incipio – they always have the best iPhone covers. P.S. If you are wondering how my hair grew inches overnight, stay tuned for a post devoted to Irresistible Me clip-in extensions!
