"Groutfits" Are the Chic Casual Trend You Never Saw Coming

The term groutfit comes from a fusion of the words gray and outfit. A groutfit is simply two or more articles of clothing in varying shades of gray, worn together. Groutfits have earned themselves a bad rap due to their slouchy nature and dull appearance. Among millennials, showing up to a party or even leaving the house in a groutfit has been considered one of the most lethal forms of social suicide – until now.

The average groutfit may have previously consisted of a baggy tee and sweats, but not anymore. We're turning to the most fashion-forward women on Instagram to give the word groutfit a whole new meaning. From chunky turtlenecks to sleek skinny jeans, this monochromatic look is about to be your go-to style.
