We have so much love for the all-gray outfit. Not of the sweatsuit variety (although we would never part with our Netflix-binge-watching uniform), but the head-to-toe monochromatic styling of gray separates for an overall tonal look.
There are so many reasons to love the monochrome gray outfit. Not because it’s a power move (but it totally is), or because it’s the easiest way to get dressed in the morning, or because someone invented a word for it (see groutfit). There’s something inherently comfortable about it. And it looks incredibly chic. Grays are easy to mix because the textures and shades work well together. Mixing mediums like wool, cotton and suede adds depth and dimension. Another great thing about an all-gray base: your color gemstone jewelry really stands out.
We couldn’t think of a trendier way to accessorize this single hue style than with two cotton candy colors that are inspiring designers in every discipline. Morganite and aquamarine are the gemstone equivalent of the year’s top colors, a pastel duo that has set the tone for fashion and interior design in 2016. We love the softness of this pillow-mint pink and blue. And these colors were made for warmer weather. It’s a great way to get a little more wear out of a traditionally cool weather color scheme like gray tonal.
If your grays aren’t working together, they should be. Adding morganite or aquamarine accessories will elevate the look to ultra-chic. We’ve picked out a few of our favorites here.
