How To Wear Gray And Black And Feel Serene This Week

There was a strong theme in this week’s Visible Monday link-up: mixing gray and black, keeping it neutral and looking serene. Could it be the January effect? So much gray sky, snowy yards, and damp chill? Nah, we all look pretty happy. It’s soothing some days to stick to easy, foolproof dressing formulas. And this combination is always chic, no matter the winds of fashion.

Gracey looks relaxed and happy, and I love those over-the-knee boots (similar).



Olga added a statement pendant and textured tights. Love those shoes too.

For Vis Monday I wore a faux-leather vest (similar) and calf-high boots (sim). So wanna-be fierce. : >



Alicia from Between The Pearls does distressed denim (sim) and fabulous sunglasses (sim).



Nancy of Food And Fashion And Other Stuff (love that blog name) rocks a chunky sweater/tunic (sim) and statement bangles (sim).


Any one of us could add a vibrant scarf (sim) or colorful shoes (sim) or jewelry (sim). All those options are fun too, and it’s always OK to stay with cool neutrals. Do you get the urge to keep it simple some days? xo

Stay fabulous,

  1. I’m actually moving towards wearing a palette of somewhat neutral colors and – like you said – spicing it up with accessories. Love me some color, but I found I’m quite happier when I use it as well placed accents instead.

    Have a great weekend!

    P.S. I really like your biker vest.

  2. I am not usually a fan of grey and black but I have been reaching for it this month too!
    It looks so stylish and chic.
    Chunky knits and plenty of texture.
    It should be dull and depressing but you are right!
    Serenity all the way.

  3. It is a rare day when you will find me in just grey and black, but it has happened, in fact just last week. I think you are right, it is the month of January.

    Thinking of you and sending healing positive thoughts for the family…
