The dark gray suit, that stalwart of your winter wardrobe, doesn’t have to be dull. When the gray days of winter start stacking up, and you wonder if the sun will ever return, it can be difficult to get inspired to bring some color into your wardrobe. But wearing dark suits in the winter doesn’t have to sap the color out of your wardrobe.

Below we’ll start with a dark gray canvas (our body-slimming Charcoal Herringbone, winter weight Highbridge Charcoal Houndstooth and luxurious Solid Gray suits) and show you how to trick them out with color and panache.
