These 33 Gray Pieces Will Help You Construct the Perfect Groutfit

Few things encapsulate the spirit of fall quite like the groutfit. The “groutfit”—a portmanteau of the words gray and outfit—speaks to a kind of style that’s simultaneously lackadaisical and delightful.

Where all-black-everything reeks of effortless sophistication, the groutfit communicates something much chiller—a day spent cozied up in the lowest-key outfit possible. Groutfits tend to be so laid-back, in fact, that the gr seems less the result of the ensemble’s all-gray palette and more of an homage to the “grunge” or “grouchiness” inherent to the look.

The groutfit first stumbled onto the sartorial scene in 2009, when an enterprising internet user added the term to Urban Dictionary. But it took a while for the innovative look to gain steam. The ensemble didn’t enter the mainstream until somewhat recently—with the Kardashian-Jenners stepping out in surprisingly sleek groutfits in 2016 and Gigi Hadid opting for a more comfy-cute approach to the look a year later, in 2017.

Now, the groutfit has been reiterated so many times, its styling options are seemingly endless. Dressy groutfits are on the menu—so are office-appropriate groutfits, and classically chill ones. It’s pretty hard to go wrong when it comes to styling a groutfit, but the key is knowing where to start—which gray clothes are worth shopping, which building blocks you need to enter groutfit paradise.
