How I Wear My Gray.
Gray may be the season's hottest hue, but that doesn't necessarily make it easy to carry off. And, it is not my best color. So, here's how I wear gray and some pointers that may help you wear it as well.
Add shine to gray.
Either choose gray pieces with hints of metallic thread or sequins, or layer with a sequin or satin piece. My suit has a sheen that adds interest and keeps it from being a boring old gray suit.
I like to wear a black shell with suits because I can accessorize it anyway I want to. But, for the most sophisticated and professional look, pair gray with black or white. Or wear various shades of gray, layering dove gray and charcoal together. The lighter the gray, the darker the complementary color should be, and vice versa.
Match gray with colors that work.
If you are like me and gray is not your best color, then add interest to gray with color. Jewel tones -- ruby, purple, cobalt, and violet -- all look rich with gray.
Many women find the best way to wear gray is as a jacket or bottom, using color (in the form of a blouse or shell) up close to the face for flattery. Scarves and jewelry add a great option too. These kinds of color combinations give the impression of a balanced outfit, with just enough contrast to keep it interesting.
Have fun with gray!
There are so many possibilities for changing up what otherwise could be a very boring and bleaching color. For ideas, find a piece of art that you really like. This will give you color combination suggestions.
Do any of the following paintings speak to you and inspire you to shop in your closet for new combinations and outfits?
So how do you wear your gray?
