Groutfit | 9 Monochrome Grey Outfit Ideas That Are Too Hot to Handle
Monochrome Grey Outfit Ideas
The monochrome look is anything but boring. It is a very wearable look if you’re up for a classic style.
Try an all-grey outfit with these outfit ideas. Here are 9 inspos to keep close at hand as you go grey this season.
1. The Two-Piece Set
Look super put-together with this two-piece set. Two-piece sets are great because they’re practically a no-brainer outfit!
2. With an Overcoat
If you want to add polish to an all-gray-everything look, then go for a long overcoat. The great thing about using a grey overcoat is that it gives the illusion of wearing an all grey outfit without really going all grey!
So if you’re a newbie at the whole monochrome look, this is a great way to ease into it. You can pair your grey overcoat with a classic pair of grey jeans and a simple button-down shirt.
3. Grey Culottes
What are culottes? Culottes or split skirts are knee-length trousers. The trousers are cut with full legs, so it also looks like a skirt.
Try one with a grey crop top to add a little extra flair. Voilà!
A fitted crop top helps balance out the silhouette of the culotte. If you’re going for a daring look, sticking to simple, solid colors is a great way to keep it a little low-key
4. The Midi Skirt
When it comes to groutfits, take the monochrome look to a slightly more formal place via a midi-skirt. Midi skirts are skirts that end halfway between your ankle and your knee.
So depending on the fabric and color, you can actually dress it up pretty easily! Try pairing your grey midi skirt with a fitted grey top or sweater.
Tip: When you’re going for monochrome looks, you can add a pop of color with some accessories. Pick out a bag with a distinctive color that’ll pop against the backdrop of your outfit.
5. With a Camel Trench Coat
Strictly speaking, you don’t have to stick to just one color to pull off a great monochrome look. You can add splashes of contrasting colors to make your look more interesting.
Layering your groutfit with a camel trench coat is a contemporary contrast. And if you want to go back to your all grey outfit, you can simply slip out of your coat!
6. White Midi Skirt
Try breaking up your groutfit with a crisp white midi skirt! Monochrome looks also work well when you combine similar shades in one look.
If you look at the different shades of grey, you’ll notice that the lightest shades are close to white and the darkest are close to black. So feel free to play with all the shades of grey to come up with your groutfit.
7. Turtle Neck Top
Love this all-grey casual chic style with layering and a pair of cool ripped jeans! If you really want to go all out on this groutfit inspo, make sure your jeans are in a shade of grey too!
Tip: Pair this outfit with over-the-knee boots, sneakers, or flats to go for a casual, everyday look. But you can take this look from day to night by changing into a pair of sleek heels.
8. Asymmetrical Top
Some people may find the monochrome look boring, but it doesn’t have to be! Go for the details—we love the asymmetrical grey top paired with an elegant pleated skirt.
Going monochrome is the perfect opportunity to experiment with different silhouettes and cuts because you don’t have to worry about mixing and matching colors. All you have to think about is rocking your interesting top!
9. Grey Poncho
We love how the grey poncho paired with ripped white jeans adds an effortless style to your look. Style-wise, ponchos can be tricky.
If you don’t choose the right color combination or pattern, it can look a bit messy. That’s why ponchos work great with monochrome looks!
Sticking to a single color makes you look more put-together—even if you’re wearing something fun like a poncho.
Tip: When you’re wearing a large or oversized top, pair it with tight pants or a skirt. Use your bottoms to add a contrast to the bigness of your top.
