What Would Holley Wear: Bring on the Gray

In our humble, yet accurate opinion…gray doesn’t have to be that in-between shade that denotes “blah”.  So from cozy to glamorous….we say, “bring on the gray!”.

Gray skies…no problem.  Grab a cup of tea and cuddle up in something cozy and gray!  We are loving all the gray sweats and sweater combos on our Pinterest board.  If you plan to head outside, don’t forget a cute cap. An oversized gray cardigan is perfect for our southern winter weather. Think about topping off your comfy outfit with a gray blanket scarf….nothing “blah” about these cute outfits!

If you like to blend-in with the crowd in a classy way, you will love a monochromatic look.  If you don’t own a pair of gray jeans…you need to. They go with everything and are the perfect base for an all-gray ensemble. One of our Pinterest favs shows gray jeans paired with a gray turtleneck, grey coat, and snakeskin booties…so chic! To give your jean ensemble a posh vibe, think about accessorizing with a gray tote.   

Are you of the opinion that the color gray sometimes gets a bad rap?  Yep…me too. Let’s put a stop to this nonsense and “wrap” up in a gray winter coat.  Who doesn’t love an ultra-soft faux fur or teddy bear coat? We think Kenzie’s notched-collar gray teddy is ideal for a cloudy winter day.  And a faux fur collar gives a gray Anthropologie cardigan a luxurious touch of cozy.

For a business meeting, a gray pleated skirt coordinated with a sweater will definitely add polish to your professional style.  Wondering what to wear to a job interview? Nothing says, “I’m an executive” like a gray pantsuit. Be sure to take a look at our Pinterest board, and check out Macy’s, Nordstrom’s, and Banana Republic online for more pantsuit options.  

What’s your favorite color to coordinate with gray?  We are loving pink! Since every color goes with gray, just add an accessory in your favorite color to give your gray outfit a pop.  A great Pinterest board look features a gray coat, plaid scarf, and jeans paired with a pink Chloe’ handbag and pink sneakers. And a pair of gray plaid pants, pink blazer, and handbag topped with a gray overcoat was a show-stealer at Paris Fashion Week!

It’s easy to glam up a gray outfit by wearing a beautiful brooch on your coat or blazer.  We think a Chanel brooch pinned to a coat, complemented with a gray Hermes’ bag is the ultimate!  By adding a pair of Oscar de la Renta fringed earrings or a pair of Alexis Bittar teardrops, your look will instantly transform from professional to glamorous!  And think about topping off your luxe look with a metallic Dior evening bag. How glam does that sound?

With so many stylish and glamorous ways to wear gray….we are definitely saying goodbye to “blah” and hello to gray!
