Red and gray is the new red and black. When you're looking for a way to wear boring red clothing items, such as sweaters or T-shirts, update them with silvery gray details. The color combination looks just as elegant as red and black, but with a more casual, daytime-friendly touch.
Red Sweater and Gray Skirt
For a look that takes you everywhere from the office to a night on the town, slip into a fitted red sweater or cardigan and a figure-flattering gray pencil skirt. Add a bit of black, such as a thin leather belt and peep-toe pumps, to complement the color duo.
Red Dress and Gray Shoes
If you want to stand out at a cocktail party or other evening event, pair a little red dress with gray, rather than black, heels. Look for a pair of strappy gray heels or peep pumps featuring a bit of silvery sparkle for added glamour. Complete the look with shiny silver chandelier earrings and a silver cocktail ring.
Red Tunic Top and Gray Leggings
When you're craving a casual-cool weekend look, outfit yourself in a gray legging and red tunic top ensemble. The fitted pants show off toned legs, while the top covers the derriere. Wear a pair of heather gray, knee-high suede boots over the leggings as a finishing touch.
Red Blouse and Gray Pants
Brighten up your workday in a cherry red blouse and tailored gray pants. In a sea of black-and-white office wear, you'll stand out among your coworkers. Slip a black cardigan on if you get chilly and complement the ensemble with a pair of black boots or pumps.
