Confident Twosday: Styling Grey Jeans for Spring

grey jeans 3 ways
This weekend the weather was amazing. Temperatures in the 70s and the sun was out! It made me start thinking about finally putting away some of my pants and sweaters. Then I realized, I could definitely make some items work for spring! These grey jeans are the perfect example. They are a light shade which makes it even easier to transition into spring. I came up with three ways to wear your grey jeans this season!
1. Try pairing them with light neutrals.

With my whole outfit in light neutral colors I feel ready for warmer weather! Bright colored accessories also help bring the outfit into spring.

2. Add a pastel.

Pastels are quintessentially spring so adding a top in a pastel hue makes it seem much more spring-like. And the grey jeans will help break up the pastel so you don't look like an Easter egg!

3. Wear them with a bright color.

I chose to pair mine with cobalt, but neon or any bright color would do! Spring and summer is all about pulling out the bright colors and fun prints!

And if you are looking for a pair of grey jeans to add to your closet, I love these from Max Jeans! They are fitted, but not too tight and have the perfect amount of stretch to them. I love the soft grey color. It makes them perfect for any season!

    This is great, I just got a pair of grey skinnies near the end of winter and I haven't worn them since it started warming up. Going to pin this for some inspiration! I love the idea of adding a pastel.

  30. I absolutely love how different all three of these outfits are. The first one is my favourite because of the embellished collar on that blouse, but the second outfit is also awesome! That teal bag is a beauty.

  39. Ok, you convinced me. Moving the gray jeans back into the closet with the spring and summer clothes. They had been cast-off to the guest bedroom closet. All of your looks are so lovely. I have those great teal/turquoise/aqua DSWs. Yay! Going to pair them with my gray jeans and hope to look as great as you.
