Take advantage of a classic, neutral grey skirt and mix in your personal style to liven it up to your taste. Grey, like other neutral colors, can be used as a starting board for a fabulous outfit. All you have to do is mix in a coordinating top, add some accessories and voila -- instant chic. "Glamour" magazine hails the grey skirt as "all-occasion," which means it can take you from the office to a night on the town with just a few changes along the way.
Grey Mini Skirt
Show off your legs with a grey mini skirt. The mini, which hits at the center of your thigh, can be paired with bare legs or tights depending on the weather. Freshen up the skirt with a fuchsia pink top or deep purple shirt and a wide belt that glitters. The skirt can be paired with flip-flops for a casual look or wedge sandals. Throw a cardigan over your shoulders for colder weather and switch out the sandals for thigh-high boots or ankle booties.
The Long Grey Skirt
Go bohemian with a long grey skirt and dress casually to bring out your inner flower child. The long grey skirt can be paired with a white tank top and bold, patterned scarf to tie around your neck. Add layers of necklaces and coordinating earrings for a classy spin on hippie chic. Finish off the feet with gladiator sandals or flip-flops. Dress the longer skirt up for a day of errand running by pairing a loose-fitting blouse that shows your shoulders off and a wide belt. Add sparkle to your ears and around your wrists for added texture to the outfit. Depending on the length of the skirt, pair it with wedge heels or ankle boots.
The Grey Pencil Skirt
The grey pencil skirt in an office standard; however, it does not have to be paired with a coordinating suit jacket. Liven up the office by wearing a brightly colored top in lime green or a pattern geometric shape or flowers under a white cropped jacket. Other shirt options to try include a cream-colored blouse with a stand-out necklace and earrings, or a standard black tank with heels in a color that pops, such as red or yellow.
The Grey Knee-Length Skirt
A knee-length grey skirt can come in a variety of shapes, such as the bubble cut, flare, pleated and straight. Update the skirt by wearing a tank in your favorite color and throwing a jean jacket over the tank. Pair the outfit with coordinating jewelry such as layered necklaces, chandelier earrings and bangle bracelets. Other options for the knee-length skirt include tall boots, patterned tights and a sheer, off-the-shoulder sweater with a camisole underneath.
