Do you normally gravitate towards blue, black or white for your denim or jeans choices? Those are great staples but grey jeans are a great alternative. If you are wondering what goes well with grey jeans, don’t worry. I’ve got you covered. Grey jeans have been one of my go to pieces for fall and winter for a couple of years now so I’ve rounded up as many of my grey jeans outfits as I could find.
I originally published this post in October 2020. Grey jeans outfits are still popular for fall and winter and with ultimate grey being one of the 2021 colors of the year, this post is worth revisiting.
Grey serves as great neutral and it’s softer and easier to work with than black. Grey doesn’t have to be boring either. It goes with an endless number of colors. Check out these color palettes at 40plustyle. You don’t have to resort to just black and white or more grey. However, black and white always work and accessories go a long way in making basic color palettes creative.
The majority of this post features grey skinny jeans outfits. Skinny jeans are still in style, regardless of what you read and hear. However, a whole new variety of leg styles are popular now so you have lots of choices. These outfits and tips for what to wear with grey jeans will work regardless of the leg style you choose. I have recently added a pair of kick crops jeans to my closet in grey and I’m searching for a straight leg pair. That’s how much I love grey jeans and just how versatitle they are- I want them in multiple leg styles.
My grey skinny jeans are by NYDJ. I love the fit and they are perfect for curvy figures because they have a generous back rise. I do typically size down in these jeans if indicated in the listing.

An easy way to start pairing any color bottom with a top is to look for a printed top with a little bit of that color in the top.
With a black statement top- This outfit is black and grey but the top is a statement piece with the ruffled sleeves and I’ve paired the jeans with taupe booties and added a pop of color with the necklace.
