You can go gray in patterns. We love this gray jacket with laser cut-outs and white embellishments by Byron Lars.

It’s a pattern party with Byron Lars — he shows us how stripes can be sporty and feminine at the same time.
Tracy Reese played with vertical stripes and lace at her Spring/Summer 2017 collection for an ultra feminine look.
Talk about a shirt that you can close deals in. This black and white collared stripe shirt is perfect for the runway. The all-white pocket is smart (and useful!).

Tracy Reese played with stripes in a beautiful way for her SS17 collection. This long dress is the perfect statement for a spring formal or wedding.
