8 Gray Outfits to Wear Instead of All Black

One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is analyzing trends. And when a new season arrives, I love delving back into our catalog of fashion shows to refresh myself on some of the chicest styles that ruled on the runways six months ago.

One of the most prominent trends I spotted on practically every fall 2020 runway show had one “boring” color scheme in common: gray. Yep, the neutral hue appeared in full force giving us a clear indication of what we can expect to see at all our favorite retailers (and all over our feeds) this upcoming season.

The key to wearing the easy and universally flattering hue this fall is to go full head-to-toe gray—50 shades of gray, if you will (sorry, I had to)—mixing tones, textures, and volume to keep the corporate color interesting. The effect is a cozy and sophisticated look that’s pretty difficult to screw up. Ready to instantly elevate your look? Scroll below for plenty of “groutfit” inspiration for the season ahead.
