Wearing Gray Jeans For the First Time

How to Wear Gray Skinny Jeans - Stylishlyme.com

My Perfect Pair of Gray Pants

The search for my perfect pair of gray pants started where almost all my searches start, online. Do you search online first? I always do. Since I was unsure if I would like or love the gray color I made sure to look for options that weren’t too expensive – you know what I mean, right? Liking an item versus LOVING an item.

I have a confession.

This is my first pair of gray jeans. Yes, a trendy piece. You and I have gotten close over these past years and you know that trends don’t often make it into my closet. But, I thought it was finally time to add this trendy and chic item to my wardrobe.

Finally, I came across the jeans I’m wearing in this post, from LOFT. They were originally $70, on sale for $35 but even at the discounted price I didn’t buy it online. When I’m unsure about a piece, especially my first pair of gray jeans, I must see it on. I went to my local LOFT to try them on and I was pleasantly surprised to find the price even further reduced. I ended up paying $15 – a total steal! Which brings me to a point I would like to emphasize, if you’re not sure about an item you want to buy – don’t buy it, go to the store and try it on and make sure you’re spending your money wisely, at least that’s what I do. Avoid impulse purchases.

Do you own a pair of gray jeans or are thinking of adding it to your wardrobe? If so, I suggest checking these out. The jeans linked are still on sale. Side note: I loved the way these grey jeans fit.

Tips on Wearing Gray Denim

Gray jeans are available in a variety of denim washes, from light washed-out gray to dark charcoal gray. As with most darker items in your wardrobe, darker shades tend to be more flattering and easier to wear because darker grays match a variety of colors, patterns and prints. But, gray is a neutral so it will most likely pair with a lot of the tops you already have in your closet.

Have fun mixing and matching different colors and patterns with your gray jeans. Consider wearing your gray jeans with a printed top and fun color coordinating heels. If you want to play it safe when wearing gray jeans, wear a solid top and brighten up your look with accessories. Bright summer scarves and fun embellished sandals will immediately add some fun color to your look.

I took a sophisticated approach with my first attempt at styling these gray pair of jeans. I paired it with a black cut-out top, black strappy heels, and silver accessories.

When it comes to cut, personally, I prefer skinny jeans which flatter my petite frame. I also like rolling up the bottom of my skinny jeans and making it appear “cropped.” But don’t think you are limited to skinny cropped denim, like any other jeans, it’s available in bootcut, straight leg, and ankle.

I would love to hear from you! How do you style gray jeans? Let me know in the comments!

    I completely agree with everything you said about buying pants! I don’t own gray jeans (yet) – I’ve never been totally sure how I feel about them, but those look fantastic on you (plus, what a steal)!

    The grey jeans are great, they look fab with the black shirt (the cut outs are sweet). I do not own a pair but have had my eye them for a little while. I can’t believe you only paid $15, that’s fantastic! I love a great deal!
