If you have grey jeans, what colours do you wear them with?

Just bought my first pair...I'm rubbish at putting colours together (have to ask DH if stuff goes!) so looking for inspiration smile

Anything goes with grey.

Current;y wearing grey jeans and agree with Flo - most things will go with them.

I mostly wear blues, black, white and purples with it. Very occasionally pink.

SPsYoniTheOneAndOnly Mon 15-Apr-13 14:57:12

Anything. I'm in grey now and have a red top with them.

I have light grey jeans and light pink looks nice with them

Hmm, maybe it's the tones I'm getting wrong then, because I feel a bit drab in them. Or maybe I just don't like grey jeans! They look really cool on other people...

I wear mine with "cool" toned colours: white, pink, red, black and cobalt, so not creams, browns etc. But that's just how I like to wear them. Maybe get on Pinterest and do a search on grey jeans and see the outfits that others have put together with grey jeans.

Great idea bunnymother, I haven't been on Pinterest for ages and had kind of forgotten about it!

Polyvore is a great site for inspiration clothes wise too.

If you have found a pair of grey straight-leg or slim jeans, can you let me know where from. I have been looking for eternity and the seams are giving out on my old pair (and I've already sewn them up once).

I wear them with white, silver, dusky pink, a white blouse I have with purple and green flowers on, a cream silk t'shirt.

SPsYoniTheOneAndOnly Mon 15-Apr-13 15:37:37

La Primark do them. I have a pair that's 2 year old yet you wouldn't think it. Try haven't changed shape or faded

LaTrucha Mon 15-Apr-13 15:39:22

Thanks but I have to buy online, which they don't seem to do [LaT lusts after urban conurbations with lovely things with shops in...]

LaTrucha mine are ultra skinny ones from Uniqlo.

LaTrucha Mon 15-Apr-13 18:01:45

Can't do skinny, but thanks.

White top, coloured sandals and scarf/accessories, and a tan. Grey jeans are not the feature piece of an outfit, but a sort of background to something stronger.

Mominatrix Mon 15-Apr-13 18:35:54

I think grey jeans are very versatile - I am constantly in grey and wear it with most colours bar brown.

MarshaBrady Mon 15-Apr-13 18:37:40

They do go with lots. I had very pale ones and like them with yellow.

AlwaysSleepingBeauty Mon 15-Apr-13 19:45:24

How much are Primark skinny jeans please? Sorry to hijack, I just have to get a pair for a work event at the weekend, and I never wear jeans but don't want to spend much money.

I love grey with red or pink especially.

SPsYoniTheOneAndOnly Mon 15-Apr-13 19:49:10

Between £7 and £11 i think

Puddlelane Mon 15-Apr-13 22:08:58

Careful you don't get the really light weight ones, my black super skinny's have faded and grown sad

Puddlelane Mon 15-Apr-13 22:09:18

Grown...stretched? Both?
