So you've got on your light blue skinny jeans and light gray shirt and you're looking hip, but you want to add a splash of fashionista with your shoe color choice. What colors make this happen, you ask? Lots of them! Luckily, your ensemble is totally neutral, so the challenge here will be narrowing down your myriad color options. Don't be afraid of having fun with your shoes, as they can be the keystone to a rockin' day when you're sportin' gray.

Neutrals: Black, Gray, Navy Blue, Cream

Any neutral color shoes will look super cute with your blue jeans/gray shirt ensemble. If you choose to go with gray shoes, you don't need to totally match your shirt; in fact, it will look more stylish not to do so. Try cute gray cowboy boots, suede ankle booties or dark gray ballet flats as some options. Go with these styles in any other neutral tone like navy blue, black, tan or cream.


Pink will look to-die-for adorable with this outfit. Even if you're not into this seemingly girly color, you can make it more masculine by wearing pink sneakers. Or, embrace your inner girl and go fancier by donning a tall pair of magenta pink heels, for example, which will be quite the statement.

Navy Green

The military-inspired trend is huge and ladies, and it's time to get on this train. With masculine undertones, navy green can be feminine and oh-so-chic. This hue will look great added to your sea of light blue and light gray, and will anchor the whole outfit. Play up the military look and go with lace-up boots, or wear a hot pair of navy green stilettos.

Leopard Print

So, it's not a solid color, but the neutral pattern acts like one, so get a little funky and wear a pair of leopard-print booties, flats or another style with your gray and blue outfit. "Marie Claire" magazine says, "If fashion had a national flag, it would be black, brown and spotted all over. Leopard print, made famous by designer Norman Norell in the 1940s, has been a symbol of luxury and glamor for decades." You will automatically be adding some flair, fun and luxury. Who doesn't want that?
