This season grey is going to be huge. And not just one shade of grey–all shades! I saw this picture of icicles and felt a surge of inspiration. While we won’t be seeing icicles for another month (fingers crossed), it is just another example of how nature can be a source of inspiration.

So how would I style an outfit around these colors? I love this monochromatic look.

You could also pair it with another neutral such as ivory. How fantastic is this outfit?! Use this one as inspiration for a holiday look.

To spice up a dull shade of grey, add a touch of sparkle with your accessories such as shoes or jewelry and you’ll have the perfect outfit. Simple, stunning, but still striking.

For the guys:

Most guys have a tendency to pair their grays with black.  How about a subtle change…try wearing your grey sweater with your navy pants.  Make sure they are either narrow or at least straight…and FLAT front!  This is a perfect example of a causal Friday outfit for a day at the office. Adding the button down underneath the sweater also adds another layer of warmth for these colder months.
