A grey suit is a basic essential on most men’s wardrobe. They are the usual choice for formal affairs such as weddings, a power suit for a corporate business meeting and a suit to impress for an elegant evening affair. A grey suit on its own is elegant and very stylish. But grey as a color can be dull and boring, and grey suits need some “enhancement” to liven it up and give it a more interesting and exciting dimension. Here are some tips on how to liven-up a grey suit:

Combine it with colors
Since grey is a neutral color it gives you a lot of latitude in matching it up with the colors of your other outfit. Grey combined with colors is a fantastic way to test your ability to mix and match colors at the same time perk up your grey suit and enliven your looks. Grey will counterbalance any color you wear with it, making it the perfect background for colors.
Your grey suit can carry you from one season to the other just by the color of the dress shirt or t-shirt that you wear beneath it. For a summer wear, mix your grey suit with summery colors such as pink, green, turquoise or red. For the fall and winter season, your grey suit worn over a burgundy or purple dress shirt will surely call attention to your gear. Just make sure that the colors that you choose are flattering to your skin tone.
Wear them as separates
A gray jacket paired with chinos or even with denims worn with a button-down or t-shirt with boat shoes to complete the outfit is a great summer look. Your grey pants can also be worn with other tops such as a cardigan or even a tweed jacket for the Fall season. It will not only ward off the chill of autumn, it will give you a debonair look. Build your ensemble around a grey jacket or grey trousers; see if you can come up with interesting ensembles that will always be fresh.
