Can I Wear a White T-Shirt with a Gray Cardigan?


It can be tough to figure out what shades work well together all the time. If you've got a gray cardigan, you're in luck. The two colors do in fact match, so feel free to pair them together. Of course, white isn't the only color that works with gray, but if you want to keep your look sleek and simple, it's a fantastic option.

Why It Works

If you're still a little wary, think about it logically. Gray is a neutral color, which means it matches everything. White is also a neutral color. So, since both gray and white are neutral colors, your gray cardigan will definitely work with your white T-shirt.

How to Wear It

Since you're sporting a T-shirt, which is inherently casual, the most obvious pairing would be with a simple bottom like jeans. Skinnies work just as well as wide-legs. Make your look a little bit edgy by throwing on a pair of baggy boyfriend jeans or switch it up with distressed denim. If you want to get a little dressier, try tucking your tee into a skirt or harem pants. Add a heel to glam it up and keep your gray cardigan on for a cool casual/dressy combo.

Who Loves It

Looking to stylish celebs sometimes helps to ease anyone into a clothing decision. So, if you need a little more inspiration, you'll be happy to know that tons of your favorite famous folk pair their gray cardigans with white tees. Jennifer Aniston likes hers with jeans and a leather jacket. Charlize Theron has been spotted wearing the same look too, adding a few bangles and oversized glasses to finish off her look.

Other Ideas

Your white T-shirt isn't the only thing that will work with your gray cardigan. So, if you don't have a tee, but like the look, don't fret. Try a white tank, or a white long-sleeved top. They'll both look just as fab. Other colors work too, so keep it neutral in black or gray or add a little color by throwing on a brightly hued top.
