Pairing Khaki with Grey

Q. I have a wool and polyester pair of solid color medium grey pants from Sarah Jessica Parker’s Bitten clothing line and I wanted to know if I can wear a khaki blazer with the pants. The blazer is fitted and it’s short but not short like a bolero jacket and the material is cotton twill. And what other colors and materials can I wear with these grey pants? I have a pair of black pants and seem to have no trouble matching those with colors! I also should say that I will be wearing the pants while working in an office whose dress code is business casual.
– Grey Color Blind

A. Think of grey as a neutral that can be paired with almost any color. As long as the blazer is thicker cotton twill you should be fine wearing it with your grey pants to the office. Going forward pair your grey pants with lavender, purple, greens, a variety of blues from teal to turquoise, even red and pastels as well as hot pinks will work. It’s just a matter of deciding which of those colors look most flattering with your skin tone.
