Move over blue, move over black there’s a denim alternative taking center stage this fall. You’ve seen grey before and maybe you’ve thought about it but stayed in your comfort zone. It’s easy to think blue or black work best. But today I’m sharing easy ways of styling charcoal grey denim.
Styling Charcoal Grey Denim
First things first, don’t let the color throw you. It’s easy to get caught up in feeling that charcoal grey is so different from your standard blue or black. To be completely honest you can wear charcoal grey with anything you’d normally wear blue or black jeans with!
These jeans are from Avara, they are called the Chloe jeans. I am wearing a size 27 and I’d say they run TTS. They are very comfortable and I love the wash. The price is great too and you’ll save an extra 15% with my code THISBLONDE15.
Outfit Ideas to Try
This is what I wore out on Friday night for dinner with friends. My black satin shirt from Banana Republic Factory added the perfect amount of ‘dressy’ to these jeans. This shirt is a great wardrobe staple for me. In fact, I like it so much I ordered it in cream! I kept my accessories very simple with my standard gold toned pieces.
Easy pairing with a sweater and chelsea boots, charcoal grey just adds a little extra something to a casual look. If I had to recommend one sweater this year it would be one with stripes, they are classic and go with everything.
You’ve seen this bomber jacket before. I think the black accents really stand out with the white tee and charcoal grey denim. Pro tip: when you are using your white tee for layering, try a baby tee like this one. It fits snug to the body and doesn’t ride up nor does it need tucking, great alternative to a bodysuit.
Cropped blazers are a big trend this year and you know how much I love a blazer! This liquid leather version from Clara Sunwoo really dresses up the denim. I added my cap toe pumps (similar) but a simple black heel would work. P.S. don’t forget to use my code KELLYANN10 to save on your Clara Sunwoo purchase!
Bonus look you saw here. Let’s face it, any pretty blouse is going to look great with these jeans!
Try Charcoal Grey Yourself
So, are you ready to try charcoal grey yourself? If you’re a denim lover this is a fun way to update your existing wardrobe. Think of how great these jeans would look with brighter colored tops and sweaters. With the upcoming holidays, these jeans would be a nice way to dress for parties. I don’t know about you but we don’t get invited to too many parties anymore and the invites we do get are generally house parties.
If you aren’t a denim lover, then I urge you to give these a try! These are a nice option – they almost seem a little dressier than standard jeans.
