Grey and yellow are a surprisingly fabulous color combination that works beautifully to add friendly sophistication to your look, whether you're meeting someone new for a coffee, or going out to dinner with your long-time love. Make your date smile when you show up in this confident outfit that matches grey skinny jeans with a soft yellow shirt and loose, unfussy hair. Wear it on your next outing with fabulous shoes —you can even roll up your jeans cuffs, if you like, to show off your footwear. 

Tip: Play with your accessories to create a look that’s sunny or sexy, depending on your fashion vibe. For instance, the orange purse pictured here adds a note of fun that works for daytime. For a sleeker look, skip the wristwatch, keep the gold bracelet, and carry a clutch purse in shiny black patent leather, or exotic leopard print.

Here’s an easy, stylish grey jeans outfit for wearing to work, on days when jeans are allowed. You can dress up your usual casual Friday look by creating an outfit around chic, cropped grey jeans in a slim (but not tight) fit. Pair your pants with a tailored, boyfriend-style blazer in white, navy or black, layered over a simple tank or shell. (When the weather is warm, try a jacket in a lighter textured fabric, such as cotton, linen or seersucker.) Add a statement necklace and a structured handbag, to dress up this outfit for presentations and meetings.

Tip: Take advantage of a shorter pant leg and show off your favorite shoes. A classic high heel pump in a neutral shade works well with this look for the office.
