Grey is a versatile color that complements many other colors and styles of clothing.  It also gives you a lot of freedom on how to style it, but it can also be overwhelming with the endless combinations and looks you can make.

A grey shirt can be worn for any occasion, from a casual day out on the town, to a business-smart look for the office, or even for a formal event.  A grey shirt can also work with your personal style, preferences, and desired look or statement.  It all depends on how you style it.

The nice thing about a grey shirt is that it is very hard to style it wrong or wear it wrong.  You can use your grey shirt for an easy, uncomplicated look, or you can use it to effortlessly create a bold and sophisticated outfit.  Either way, here are some ideas on what to wear it with.
