One 2 Three: The Grey Pencil Skirt

Screen shot 2013-11-03 at 5.38.58 PM



In this edition of One 2 Three, I will provide 3 looks that will work with a grey pencil skirt. In the past few years, grey has become an increasingly popular color, often referred to as the new black. And how can it not? It is the perfect blank canvas which compliments a variety of color combinations. In the spring and summer it pairs extremely well with bright yellow, mints and peaches. In cooler weather maroon, navy, purple, and other rich jewel tones shine against the grey.


It is a versatile color that can be dressed up or down. In my inspiration board above, I selected pieces that would be appropriate for the office or a luncheon. I picked tops that would pop against the skirt and simple classic accessories. In the mint aqua outfit, I decided to select jewelry that had a touch of whimsy to compliment the 50’s peplum silhouette of the top.

These are just 3 possible looks that compliment the grey skirt. I think that there are far more variations that would go well with the skirt, and you are only limited by your imagination.
