Best Colors to Wear If You Opt To Go Gray

When it comes to curating your wardrobe with a striking gray shade, it's time to up the ante.

Can we just come out and say: cheers to our silver sisters.

While we believe how we present ourselves in the world is a deeply personal choice, the “silver revolution” of women embracing their natural hair color is a powerful statement about accepting ourselves as we are. And that is beautiful.

Living at a time where those of us who choose to no longer have to conceal the grays feels quite liberating.

However, one not-so-little consideration is that everything from your hair products to makeup to clothing colors may need a second take. Put simply, what looked good when you were a brunette may not be so flattering with a newly gray mane.

When it comes to curating your wardrobe with a striking gray shade, it's time to up the ante. We're not asking you to give up your coveted go-to pieces, but to expand your perspective. Thinking outside of the color box with shades that will perfectly compliment the now “on-trend gray hair.

Consider Non-Black Hues

It's easy to stick to the sleek and slimming effects of any black garment, but even more sophisticated for those gone gray are non-black dark colors—perfect timing for winter.

Charcoal gray is a trendy, dark hue that looks great, especially in the winter.

Try a Shade of the Season

During the chillier months, it’s best to opt out of lighter and bright tones. Instead, try embracing hues that pair well with the season.

Both emerald and forest greens are classic holiday essentials. The jewel-tone shades pair nicely with gray and help effortlessly frame the face.
