5 Non-Boring Ways To Wear Gray This Season

Look to our editor’s guide for effortlessly stylish ways to dress up the color.

In addition to black, gray is perhaps one of the most versatile colors one can wear throughout the entire year. Although it may seem like a safe and uninteresting option, you can create effortlessly stylish outfits with a variety of garments from your wardrobe. In the latest installment of our style guides, we’re highlighting all the different ways to wear gray pieces ranging from cardigans and suits, to handbags and sneakers. As we ease into spring and summer days, make sure to look to our list of outfit ideas to get you motivated this season.

While you’re here, check out more from our HYPEBAE Editors’ Guide series including different ways to wear tracksuits and styling baggy jeans.

Grocery Run

Grocery runs and quick walks are some of the very few things that we can dress up for with the ongoing pandemic. Keeping comfort in mind, we’re styling Nanushka’s heathery gray cardigan with AGOLDE’s asymmetrical denim shorts along with a simple canvas tote bag to store all of your essentials. Rounding out this effortless style are a pair of crew-length socks by Homme Girls and New Balance’s 990v5 sneakers.

Post-Pandemic Chic

Despite strict social distancing measures across the world, we’re looking forward to post-pandemic dressing more than ever with dream accessories and garments. We’re pairing MM6 Maison Margiela’s pinstriped suit with a standout turtleneck top by Dion Lee, along with square-toed mules by Martine Rose. To add a pop of color, put on your favorite pair of sunglasses (we’re eyeing Paloma Wool’s translucent design this season).

Colorful Spring

Spring is all about incorporating a variety of hues into your wardrobe. Take a loose-fitted top with an accent color (we’ve opted for Acne Studios’ sky blue striped pullover) to use as a central theme throughout your outfit. Balance everything out with a pair of gray shorts and a logo cap, while brightening up your look with white derby shoes and colored socks.

All-White With a Touch of Gray

Gray may seem like an uninteresting color, but it can serve as an accent depending on how you style your outfits. Put together an all-white look with Coperni’s asymmetrical shirt and Proenza Schouler’s extra-comfy ribbed knit pants. Round out the ensemble with Converse’s Run Star Hike and keep the entire fit balanced with Maison Margiela’s gray Glam Slam Bag.

Comfy-Cool

Playing around with different fabrics and textures is a great way to diversify your wardrobe. Here, we’re pairing Helmut Lang’s Folded Pant with a vegan leather top from Nanushka. Keep things comfy and casual with a pair of sneakers like this Maison Margiela x Reebok Project 0 CC TL pair, and elevate the overall look with statement jewelry such as AERI GO’s Spirit Earrings.
