Words that come to my mind when I think of the color gray are gloomy, bleak and somber. I would have never thought that this color would be one of my favorites for this season. Between different accessories and colors, gray is extremely versatile.
This Fashionista used the color to make her wardrobe a little dressier. She started out with a simple, clean-cut gray dress as the base of her outfit. She then added a few accessories like a bright red belt and a gold watch. These accessories really added the perfect touch to her outfit, since she also had a gray toned bag and black flats. She added just enough color to her basic, gray dress.
Oscar de la Renta is an example of a designer that incorporated many shades of gray into his spring 2013 collection. Here is one look he created that used different tones.

On a more ready-to-wear perspective, these Madewell Thunder Floral Printed Skinny Jeans show a lot of versatility. They can be paired with almost any color top and shoes to pull off a complete look. Be careful to not wear too many different patterns in one outfit. Although these pants are gray and monotone, they can make a pretty big statement!
