Pantone calls Neutral Gray a colour of the Fall but when it comes to suiting it is an essential in your wardrobe. We will only dive into a few looks you can wear with the neutral gray but it is just that, a neutral colour so you can put it with so many colours.
Let's look at it with a colour our clients love, the tawny port (maroon) in the solid tie and patterned shirt. It is paired with a white & black patterned pocket square that is again a neutral colour that allows the tie and shirt to pop.
A side note, the light gray vest is something we consider an essential.
I love the look of dark and light colours paired together, they just pop. This outfit has a darker blue shirt with the essential dark blue patterned tie and a white pocket square with the piped blue along the edge. Overall a very classy look with the colours chosen.
Any colours go with the gray suit, from light to dark. The lighter it is the more professional, the darker the more stylish. Jeremy Piven puts this look together perfectly. Light purple shirt, dark purple tie and the essential white pocket square to keep the look clean.
This is the extreme example of wearing all dark colours with your neutral gray suit, it pops. You most likely wouldn't wear this to the office but look at it wearing this outfit at a time you are wanting to make a style statement. Don't be afraid to wear patterns with it as well, it doesn't have to be all solid black.
