Ways to Wear It – Gray Tee

We always talk about the importance of having a great white tee in your closet staples collection, however, we sometimes overlook the amazing versatility of the grey tee. First, it’s a neutral, which means it goes with everything. Plus, if you’re having a hard time finding a white tee, or perhaps white is just not your color, then a perfect alternative is a gray tee. It’s also super easy to style and comes in many different shades so you’re sure to find one that beautifully compliments your skin tone.

If you don’t have a gray tee, we highly recommend you add it to your closet arsenal. Also, it’s okay to have more than one of these. Between the different necklines and sleeve lengths, having a couple of styles will help you get through all the different seasons. But for now, let’s focus on summer with these three great ways to style a gray tee – perfect for the rising temps!

Option #1

Gray Tee + White Bottoms + Bright Shoes + Neutral Handbag

A gray tee is styled with white shorts or crop pants and red sandals.

For this first look, we styled the gray tee with white bottoms. The choice is yours as far as the option of shorts or pants but feel free to style with a skirt as well. And yes, brown and gray do go together in this classic outfit. Finally, the look is finished off with some red sandals but truly any color will complement this look perfectly.

Option #2

Denim Jacket + Gray Tee + Bright Bottoms + White Sneakers + Color Tote

A denim jacket is styled with a gray tee, Kelly green shorts and white sneakers.

For outfit number two we really had fun playing with color. First, we added a denim jacket because sometimes the mornings and evenings can still be a little cool. Then we paired the gray tee with some fun bright shorts and stayed casual with some white sneakers. Lastly, the look is finished off with some more color with a coordinating bright tote.

Option #3

Neutral Cardigan + Gray Tee + Medium Wash Bottoms + Snake Print Shoes + Color Tote

This outfit is styled with a beige cardigan, a gray tee and medium washed shorts finished off with snake print sandals.

Finally, for the last look, we stayed pretty simple with a neutral cardigan against the gray tee and some medium-wash shorts. Feel free to sub in jeans or again, a skirt would look fabulous too! We couldn’t stay away from a fun pop of color by adding a red handbag but we also added print in the form of snake print sandals, which don’t forget, are also a neutral.
