1. Black Trousers
This is a great choice if you want to wear grey shoes with something a little more traditional. The pants are black, and the rest of your ensemble is going to be the same shade of grey. Add some bling to this look with the best cufflinks in silver! Don’t forget a pocket square
2. Blue Shirt
Wearing red trousers with a blue shirt can be very safe and sophisticated. Perhaps the most popular color for a crisp, professional look is navy. Pair it with black, brown, or khaki shoes for something simple yet elegant.
3. White Pants
The above article is all about the perfect pants to wear with white shoes. This is the kind of outfit that is easy to pull off, yet still compliments a gray shoe color nicely. It’s also very polished and sophisticated looking.
Denim is a timeless look with an edge. It’s easy to dress up or down, and it always looks really cool with a leather jacket. Check out the jeans look on Pinterest for inspiration.
5. Yellow Pants
Just because you’re sporting a gray shirt doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate some color! A yellow shirt, for instance, can brighten up your complexion and add a little spice to your wardrobe.
6. Gray Pants
Energetic looks for gray days: Generally, you’re going to want to wear your gray outfit on a nice, sunny day. But there are some outfits that work well on a cloudy day if you feel like dressing up! You can definitely look sharp in black pants and a white shirt with a blue blazer.
7. Black Skirt
It’s important to wear clean clothes, and with a black skirt, you’ll be sure to always stay in style. Consider matching it with a black blazer and white shirt as well.
8. Brown Dress
This dress matches so well with the color of gray! It’s very classy and goes great with brown accessories. The points: Even though you’re wearing feminine colors, don’t forget to add a little edge to your look with your brown belt and black shoes.
9. White Dress
I think black pants and a white shirt are a classic look. The outfit ends up being very sophisticated, like a man in a suit. But you can play around with it! You can have some fun with bright accessories and make the whole look less formal and more casual! The interesting part about this outfit is that you’re wearing two shades of gray! If you’re going to wear gray, choose one that’s brighter than another, perhaps even white or silver.
10. Gray Dress
You will look fantastic wearing this gorgeous gray and white dress from Modcloth! The colors are very trendy, and the style is perfect for both warm or cool weather. If you’re not comfortable with your legs, be sure to wear opaque black tights! This dress is a little short in the front, so if you want to wear it on a date, I suggest pairing it with nude pumps and a cardigan. If you won’t be sitting down, feel free to leave those items at home.
11. Gray Jacket
You could easily match the pants with the jacket you already have laying around the house! Or if you’re ready to take things to the next level, consider getting a pair of gray slacks in your size.
12. Brown Jacket
Brown, evening, or beige jacket. This is a nice neutral color that will look good with both light and dark-colored shirts. You’ll have to accessorize the look a little bit by adding a pair of eyeglasses or reading glasses, a watch, and/or necklace with your clothes.
13. Gray Shirt
Gray shirt that’s button-down in style. Make sure the neckline is not too low; it’s more casual than a bow tie or turtleneck (with the exception of some jeans).
14. Black Vest
The look is kind of punk rock with the black suit and the blue-green shirt. (from David Gandy). The look is classy. With a grey suit and shoes, this outfit will have your date chatting about how you’re so stylish! (from Emily Henderson) A nice pair of gray trousers or jeans would make this an even more comfortable outfit for your date.
15. Blue Vest
The “right” don’t-call-it-neatness is definitely a poppin’ v and it’s been around for quite some time; it just is, after all. But the thing about this look is that it’s timeless. In order to make sure you look like you’re in good company at the dinner table, pair this piece of outerwear with a white button-down shirt, a red tie, and loafers.
16. White Vest
Your white vest will go great with a brown belt and black suit jacket. This classic look is sure to help you look your best when meeting friends for lunch or saying hello as you arrive for work.
17. Yellow Shirt
You can’t go wrong with a classic yellow shirt. It looks great with gray pants, ties, and even shoes!
18. Pink Shirt
Pink shirt? Light gray pants? This outfit combination is quite a stunner! Any pants in this color would look wonderful with a blue shirt and brown belt, but for an extra pop of style, consider adding a pocket square to the left breast of your shirt.
A tailored blazer is a great way to pair gray pants and a gray shirt together. There are many ways to wear this combination, with the only rule being that everything should be polished and fit well!
20. Red Shirt
Red shirt, brown belt and black pants. Mixing the three colors together creates a unique look. Though this combination creates a powerful and distinguished impression, it’s important to remember that your wardrobe should be flexible enough to allow you to accessorize with different color schemes.
21. Red Skirt
Fashionista tip: Sometimes a bolder, more intricate pattern is best. Choose a skirt that has multiple patterns and prints, rather than one solid color. It’ll give off interest without looking like you’re overdressed for the occasion!
22. Brown Shirt
Whether you’re staying with the brown theme by wearing a pair of brown shoes like these or pairing it with a grey belt and accessories, you’ll be sure to get lots of compliments on your simple but polished outfit!
23. Yellow Dress
See all of the latest fashion trends at: How do you wear shoes with a color like gray? I’ve asked around but haven’t gotten many creative answers. The only thing I was able to find is that you should wear underwear (and perhaps a dress too) for men and women. When it comes to choosing shoes, it’s more about I’ve seen lots and lots of boots, oxfords, and sneakers on the street lately.
24. Casual Blazer

25. Camouflage Pants
Camouflage pants are a quintessential piece of clothing for many men. For example, the Soldier Boy Camo Pants are a very popular item in the ZAFUL store, and for good reason. This particular pair of camo pants are made from cotton, wool, and polyester blend material. These pants have five pockets in total, two of which side pockets and one of which is a back pocket (for your wallet or phone).
26. Denim Blazer
Wearing clothes that are different shades of the same color is a great way to show off your personal sense of style. Whether you go with blue jeans or khakis, a mustard yellow tie will look amazing! If this isn’t working for you or your date, try a dark green henley shirt underneath.
27. Camouflage Jacket
Wear a camouflage jacket. It’s very important to keep your jacket and shoes in the same color palette. For example, if you’re wearing a light-colored pair of bluish jeans, you could wear a tan leather jacket. If you’re wearing a black or dark pair of jeans then maybe choose a black leather jacket instead (but do so if it works with the color of your belt and shoes).
28. Denim Shirt & Vest
The shirt pictured above is a classic, elegant choice to wear in the office! The gentleness of this outfit is enhanced with the addition of a brown vest. This outfit is especially great for those who aren’t ready to rock blue jeans or a black business suit to work. It’s a classic, casual yet professional look.
29. Lilac Shirt
A great style choice on a rainy day is a long-sleeved grey sweater worn under a black coat or poncho. Pairing this with black jeans for men and women is another dapper option that really works well for contemporary city fashion. A black belt completes the look. Wearing gray with a bold color is not only stylish, but it also can create a pop of contrast that will create more interest in your outfit.
30. Light Green Jacket
A light green jacket that works great with gray pants. Since the color of the jacket is neutral, your outfit won’t stand out in a bad way if you decide to wear it at night. A brown belt complemented by white trousers and a black leather belt buckle gives the outfit some added flair without being too flashy. Some people like to follow the classics, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t too! In this case, a suit is a fantastic way to showcase your grace and elegance!
