This week, we’ve been looking back over some of my winter outfits, in hopes of finding some new inspiration for winter while we wait for spring. First we looked at five ways to wear a long cardigan, then yesterday we looked at four ways to style a beanie.
Today, we’re tackling the greys. We’ve all got a little grey in our wardrobe and, while neutrals are amazing on their own, sometimes you just want to shake ’em up with a bit of color.
So, let’s look at my favorite grey sweater and how I used color around it to create three different looks.
Let’s jump in:
GREY + RUST + DENIM BLUE
Hello warm, festive vibes! This was my Thanksgiving Day outfit and while the palette is simple, it’s a great mix of cozy (rust) and modern (grey).
Start with a pair of basic skinnies. Then add a rust colored tee and top it with a grey sweater. If you’ve got side vents, unzip ’em so your rust tee peeks out a bit more. Finally, echo the rust color with your tote and booties.
DENIM BLUE + MULBERRY + DEEP BROWN + GREY
Talk about a surprising color palette! I don’t know why, but I always felt weird about putting brown and grey together — until this outfit! Now I do it all the time (and my closet has more possibilities because of it).
Try it for yourself. Start with a grey sweater and put a mulberry flannel button-down underneath. Or you could use any ol’ top in a similar color. Make sure your mulberry top peeks out at the bottom. Then “bookend” the look with a brown purse and booties. (Don’t forget cozy socks!)
SOFT BLACK + CREAM + GREY
Okay, admittedly this color palette isn’t much of a “color” palette. It’s neutral as can be. But I wanted to include it because the styling is so different from the last two outfits.
If you’re traveling somewhere soon, try this as a template for your travel day outfit — it’s simple, chic, and easy.
And there you have it!
So tell me: Find any color palettes you want to try? Grey is so versatile — do you have any favorite color palettes to share? And I’m curious, do you pair brown and grey together or do you stay away from it?
