Gray is a beautiful color, or rather a beautiful chroma. Technically speaking, gray is a non-color—an achromatic color, meaning “without color” says Wikipedia. But technicalities or not, gray is held in high regard in my wardrobe. I love it’s ambiguity in the white-black spectrum, and I am pleased to say that I will be debuting a long-term theme that I’ll call “Shades of Gray.”
Continuing my BR shopping spree from week ago, I acquired these unbelievably comfortable pair of faux-suede pants after my doubtful self randomly decided to try them on for size. I didn’t want to take them off! These riding-style pants are soft to the touch, and add a little bit of diversity to my otherwise black legging and jean-dominated bottoms wardrobe.
Embracing the innate equestrian look of the suede pant, I threw on some over-the-knee riding boots and a gray and black patterned button-up long sleeve to complete the outfit. Belted or unbelted, it makes for a classic and comfortable combination that is perfect for everyday wear.
I’m looking forward to flaunting these pants with a pair of heels and a sleeveless flowy top when the weather warms up! It’s a versatile pant that can be dressed up or down, and worn across seasons.
