While blue jeans are a classic, they aren’t quite right for every situation. Sometimes, you need a chino. Other times, the occasion calls for an actual trouser, and sometimes it’s that you need a jean that’s not blue. Black jeans are great, but gray jeans? That’s a vibe.

Shop the jeans

To be clear, I’m not talking about those, bedazzled on the butt monstrosities that became popular in the age of Ed Hardy. It’s 2022. We’re past that.

Sophisticated, un-distressed gray jeans have an elevated quality that you just can’t get with blue jeans. Consider them to be a great replacement for chinos in a casual workplace. And pssst, they work just as well out for a night on the town.

Below, 5 outfit ideas for how to wear gray jeans:
