The "Groutfit" Is Fashion's New Term For A Very Specific Look

What is a groutfit, you ask? It's a simple equation, combining the word "gray" plus the word "outfit." As portmanteaus go, "groutfit" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, nor does it sound especially desirable. We know what you're thinking — the gray sweatsuit from gym classes past, what one might don to tile the bathroom, or the airport outfit you wear when you feel sick but must. board. flight.

But the groutfit doesn't have to be all schlub and games. Turns out, we're in a perfect time to redefine the term. Head-to-toe monochrome looks fresh, not sterile, and 2014's athleisure trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon. In sum, with the right bit of styling, you can OWN these looks.
