Color Combo to Try: Peach + Gray


peach gray color combo

If you ever find yourself stuck in a style rut, playing with fun new color combinations is a great way to liven up your wardrobe. In this series, we feature unique and unexpected color combinations, then give you stylish outfit ideas so you can try out these color combos yourself. For more color-centric outfit ideas, be sure to check out our previous posts on combining Red + Pink and Mint + Mustard.

This time around, we’re going to be combining two colors that seem like total opposites — peach and gray. The pastel-hued peach gives off a soft and feminine vibe and when combined with the neutral, yet sturdy gray, creates outfits that are both super chic and perfectly balanced.

Need some outfit ideas before you try out this color combination? Scroll on down to check out four outfits featuring peach and gray:

Outfit #1: A Day at the Park

For a cute and casual outfit that combines these two colors, pair a basic gray striped shirt with a flouncy pale peach skirt. A pair of white sneakers add a sporty vibe, while a bold statement necklace adds a hint of glam. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a roomy graphic tote bag and a pair of pretty peach-colored sunglasses. This look would be perfect for spending the afternoon outdoors on a sunny day.

Outfit #2: Casual Get Together

If you’re looking for something a little fancier, try pairing a polka-dotted peach blouse with a sharp gray blazer. Tailored white shorts make this outfit practical for warmer weather, while oxfords add a quirky touch. Accessorize with an oversized black purse and silver leaf-shaped earrings for a stylish outfit that works perfectly for going out to dinner or grabbing drinks with friends.

Outfit #3: Grad Party Perfection

This lovely heather gray maxi dress from Forever 21 not only looks amazing, but is also quite the steal at under $17! Make this dress grad party-ready by adding  a gorgeous peach chain-strap purse and a pair of matching flat sandals for a simple, yet dressy vibe. Accessorize with an adorable floral print headband and an intricate gold cuff bracelet to make a stylish statement at a graduation party or any other similar occasion.

Outfit #4: Low-Key Night Out

Colored denim is super trendy this season and a great way to try out this color combination is by pairing peach-colored skinny jeans with a basic gray racerback tank top. A perforated leather belt adds interest, while cork and white leather wedges dress up the outfit. Accessorize with a long medallion necklace and a sleek white envelope clutch for a stylish and summer-appropriate nighttime look.

    This is one of the best color combinations ever. So delicate and adorable. THe 1st outfit is like a going-out-for-ice-cream-in-Paris outfit. I also love the polka dot shirt and blazer combo in outfit 2 and the colorful jeans.
    This combo is true feminine perfection.

    Wow! This is awesome! I just got done watching the 1960s version of The Parent Trap movie (hehe) and Vicki (not cool girl) was sporting these exact colors together in a veryyy cool way(: she was wearing a peach-hued blazer and pencil skirt with a grey tank underneath(: that movie has so many trends that are reappearing in ’12!!! This is great.
