In case you haven’t noticed, the color gray has been very present in the Fall-Winter 2023 fashion trends—from sweaters to classic tailored suits to, yes, gray jeans.
Instead of betting on navy blue or black denim designs, expect to see the fashion girls in gray denim this autumn. After all, fall is a season of change and transformation—and what better way to embrace that vibe than by updating your jean collection or revisiting it with new combinations?
The good news: Gray jeans are so easy to style. The modern, versatile wash looks elegant and sophisticated with neutral colors; it’s equally charming as a blank palette to play with bold accessories and colorful tops.
Whether you’re going out for a night with friends, have a romantic date in a cozy cafe planned, or simply want to look great during the week, gray jeans will revolutionize your wardrobe this fall. So here’s some style inspo to get you started.
How to wear gray jeans, according to street style
Gray jeans + trench coat + boots
Jeans with a loose-fitting, hip-length silhouette—bonus points if they’re in lead gray—are super trendy for fall. As the weather gets colder, this more sober shade of denim will be taking over instead of the usual navy blue or even black. We get why: They look great with everything and stand out from the crowd in a way that’s not overbearing. You can also have fun with them by creating a contrasting look through your shoes, top, bag, or coat.
Case in point: This look pairs gray jeans with a tan trench coat and neutral top as well as a tailored blazer underneath that can be the star once the coat comes off. Finish with a pair of booties and a bright bag and you’re ready to go.
