How to Style Grey Denim

Outfit deets:
* Zara sweater (new and now super on sale; I'm wearing a medium)
* Urban Planet layered cami (similar & love this black one)
* Zara denim (similar & love these) which you've seen with a pair of my fave shoes last Summer
* Aldo boots (old) that used to have a huge platform and I had lowered (before & after pics) (similardifferent but love these)
* Accessories: Dynamite blanket scarf (similar) & Material Girl sunnies (similar & have these on my wish list)

I love grey denim but it never tends to be my default.  I find it more touchy to style than say, your regular blue denim.  That said, other than neutrals, I'm a big fan of pairing it with pastels as I am today with this blush knit sweater and in the past with my mint leather jacket.  

When pairing with light colours, since it's softer, I like to add some tougher elements like the chunky, dark scarf and the edgy wedge boots.  I find this breaks up the look and add some interest while maintaining a streamlined look.

A few other colours that would pair well with your grey denim are navy and a bright coral, like my  nail polish.

I also love the classic grey and pink combo. :)

I'm so glad you are using those remodelled boots, Amanda! They are stunning and I know how much trouble you went to to get them just right.
