Well, the ladies love grey sweatpants season. We know this. But if you’re into men’s fashion, then it can be difficult to figure out what to wear with grey sweatpants while maintaining a stylish look. We looked at hundreds of options to determine what are the best grey sweatpants outfits.

You don’t want to be rocking oxford button-downs with your grey sweatpants, it just doesn’t work. So what do you wear?

White chunky sneakers are a great option to wear with grey sweatpants. They’re comfortable and stylish and go with just about anything.

The nice thing about grey sweatpants is that you can rock a variety of different multi-colored sneakers and get away with them. So if you have some super red sneakers or orange sneakers and can’t find a way to wear them, this is your chance.

Black sneakers go extremely well with the grey sweatpants outfits simply because grey, black, and white go really well together in general.

White, black, and grey sweaters and shirts are definitely a great pairing for your grey sweatpants as well. You can layer them or match them with your shoes in order to add a little bit of extra flair, but this is the go-to pairing for grey sweats for sure.

You also want to make sure your grey sweatpants look expensive and are a high-quality material. The cheap grey sweatpants look just look sloppy to me. So make sure the bagginess has several breaks in your sweatpants. They will need to be tapered down to the ankle for sure, but the key is in the breaks and the folds of your sweatpants. Take a look at some of the options below to get an idea of what these breaks look like.

1. Multi-Colored Basketball Shoes


When it comes to sneakers and sweatpants, there is one ultimate combination that will always look good: colorful basketball shoes with grey sweatpants. This is a look that never goes out of style, and it’s perfect for both men and women.

2. Layering Different Lengths


Layering lengths of shirts and sweaters can work extremely well with grey sweatpants because of the breaks you will want to have the sweatpants anyways. If you’re wearing a white sweater with your sweatpants, consider rocking a slightly off-white shirt underneath that has a longer cut and curved hem or a different material. This is a sick way to combine the sweatpants and look stylish, and definitely put a bit more money into the sneakers for sure. Black and white sneakers work extremely well, but you can flash them up.

3. Black Zip-Up Hoodie & White High-Tops


Sweatpants are a great way to relax at home, and with the right combination of clothing, you can wear them out in public too. For example, if you have a pair of high-top white sneakers, you can wear them with grey sweatpants, a white t-shirt, and a black zip-up hoodie. This will create a stylish and comfortable look that is perfect for running errands or just hanging out with friends.

4. Black & White Shell Pattern Sweater


High-top white sneakers paired with grey sweatpants, and a padded sweater pattern. This shell-like sweater pattern adds quite a bit of style to this otherwise minimal look.

5. Black Hoodies


This is a great chance to rock your black hoodies. Of course, make sure you have good breaks in your grey sweats, and also make sure they are tapered around the ankle and nice and tight. But make sure the sweatpants don’t droop down and hang over your taper. That looks silly.

6. All Grey Sweats


The grey on grey on grey look has never really been my favorite when it comes to fashion. But grey sweatpants are probably one of the only exceptions for this. You can rock the same color sweater as the sweatpants and get away with a grey jumpsuit essentially.

7. Simple White Graphic Tee


A simple graphic white tee is an easy option to pair with your look. Again, black and white pairings are the strongest color pairings for your grey sweatpants.

8. Blue Wool Crew Neck Sweater


This blue textured wool style crew neck sweater works well with grey sweatpants as well. Notice the bottoms around the ankle can be blue or you can wear blue socks, and also attempt to match the drawstrings with the blue as well which can help. I wanted to showcase a bit of color that isn’t red to give some options here as well.

9. Pale Yellow Zip-Up Sweater


This is an interesting option as well. This shows a black undershirt with a very very pale yellow graphic zip-up hoodie. I thought this was a cool look that you could rock as a casual outfit.

10. Red Sneakers


When it comes to fashion, there are no hard and fast rules. Sometimes you can mix and match different items in ways that might seem unconventional, but can actually look really good. For example, red sneakers with grey sweatpants.

At first glance, this might not seem like the most obvious pairing, but trust us, it works! The red sneakers add a pop of color to an otherwise monochromatic outfit, while the grey sweatpants provide a relaxed and comfortable feel.
