Finding a grey cardigan can sometimes feel like finding a needle in a haystack so to speak. The are not as common as you might think, but they can be so great with excellent options to pair them with a number of great colors besides your basic white. Grey is a great complement to pinks, purples, blacks, reds and even certain shades of blue and green. Having a versatile option like a grey cardigan in your closet is really a must because of the variety of pairing options. Of course, grey isn’t a color that can be worn with every skintone, but it can be a great color and comes in a number of great shades so depending on your individual style and preferences can be a great alternative to basic colors like blacks and whites. Consider a few great examples of different alternatives for grey cardigans.
First, consider the Ella Moss Victoria Cardigan. This versatile cardigan features a blend of great fabrics for added contrast including cotton voile around the shoulders that wraps from front to back. The balance of this cardigan is modal jersey fabric so super soft. The bottom half of the cardigan is a looser fit and has a light flare. It is not a fitted wrap. The neckline is also gathered as you can see in the photo of the back of this cardigan giving it another layer of individual style. We also love the light Haze grey color. It pairs so well with black, white, navy, purples and so much more. This cardigan is also dressy enough to wear to the office and casual enough to wear to run errands or out at night. It is also lightweight enough to work for warm weather and is the perfect piece for layering in spring, summer and even fall.
Alternatively, the Splendid Variegated Stripe Loose Jersey Wrap also features a great lightweight, breathable fabric which is great for warm weather. It is a little heavier than the Victoria Cardigan, but a great option with differing widths of stripes contrasted against a white background. Here the grey is a Heather grey option which is darker than the Haze grey in the Victoria Cardigan, but a completely distinctive piece with a draped cardigan style in front. The length in front cascades down to the waist with a higher more cropped fit in back.
As you can see, both of these cardigans are very distinctive and certainly not you’re basic styles or fabrics. Each of these cardigans have the versatility to work just about year round and particularly in the summer months are great pieces to throw over a tank or short sleeve top on a cool evening. Of course, grey cardigans are distinctive just as they are because of the unique colors and the versatility of the grey colors and you have certainly seen lots of grey elements in modern fashion trends in different styles and patterns. Grey truly is a great color that in a cardigan is a great complement to a number of colors which in the current economy is a great way to stretch your dollars and save your budget.
