According to, Grey is back in a big way this season – making waves in both formal and casual menswear.  The color grey alone may not necessarily be what first comes to mind when thinking about fashion- forward style however the combination of different hues, patterns, and textures gives the classic color a modern twist.

Pair a lighter grey dress shirt with a darker tie, or go bold with a tie in a deep, rich shade of purple, red, or blue. There are even more choices when it comes to casual wear. You can opt for grey denim, checks, plaid, prints, or stripes and pair with another neutral monochrome color like black, beige, grey, or blue to give your outfit contrast and layers. Grey is such a versatile color, it can be worn either as an entire single color, tonal outfit, or as an anchor when paired with other bold colors. Update your style by adding some classic grey pieces to your wardrobe this season… like a great pair of Charcoal frames!
