Grey's Anatomy Meredith Grey

Meredith Grey is the daughter of legendary surgeon Ellis Grey and an Intern (and eventual attending) at Seattle Grace Hospital. Grey’s Anatomy chronicles the struggle of balancing Meredith’s career, love-life and general happiness, while she cares for her alzheimer's-stricken mother.

On the show she has a pretty, casual style (even in her work uniform), and a little black dress for “that special occasion.” Her natural beauty and playful nature are something to be admired.

You could say it was her style (along with her beauty), that won the heart of her long time boy-toy - Derek Shepherd.​

Jackets Worn by Ms. Grey

Grey's Anatomy Meredith Grey Black Jacket

Meredith appears mostly in her scrubs and lab jacket while on-duty at Seattle Grace Hospital. When she decides to go to Joe’s bar or just out for a night on the town, she has worn several other jackets.

It seems as though she favors black the most, it has been said that it is the most flattering color.

​The jacket that I found to be the closest match to the ones worn by Meredith Grey was this A. Byers jacket. It’s a 60% Polyester blend, with classic two button fastener and slit-style pockets.

The beauty of a jacket like this is that it can be worn several different ways. Pair it with a skirt and heels and you're ready to hit the dance club! You could also just wear it to work and slip into some jeans after to transition from day wear to night wear.

​We can’t forget the most important jacket Meredith wears, her all white, medical lab coat. Here is a Cherokee women’s scrubs 36 inch lab coat that I found to be very similar to the one worn by her. 

Meredith's Shirts

The shirts of Meredith Grey are really what defines her mood at times. They can range from bright happy colors like purple and orange to gray, rainy day, lounge wear. When all's said and done, Meredith appears to dress for comfort above all else.

​If you are looking for a beautiful purple shirt like the one Meredith wears, there is a Dickies junior cap-sleeve crew-neck tee that is identical to Meredith’s - and you have got to love that color! This shirt is 100% cotton and machine washable. It comes in a modern slim-fit to accentuate your figure!

Grey's Anatomy Meredith Grey Purple Shirt

There is also this ceil blue colored scrub shirt that is very close to the one she wears on the show, and it is this Cherokee women’s scrubs v-neck.

This Esteez long sleeve layering shirt is surprisingly very similar to the orange long sleeve t-shirt Meredith often times wears underneath her scrubs. 

The Pants of Miss Meredith Grey

When she isn’t working at Seattle Grace Hospital, miss Grey often wears slim-fit denim. As the majority of women might tell you, skinny jeans offer a maximum amount of comfort and highlight all of your best features.

​While performing her duties as a resident of Seattle Grace, Dr. Grey also wears her blue scrub pants, which are equally as comfortable as wearing no pants at all.

Meredith’s black skinny jeans are quite similar to these Lee women's skinny jeans. They consist of five-pocket styling and slim-fit through seat and thigh!​

​Her scrub pants are very similar to these Just Love women’s scrub pants.  They feature both side pockets plus an additional “cargo” pocket. They are available in both cargo and utility style. The only major difference is that the utility style features back pockets and a key ring.

​The Footwear of Meredith Grey

Meredith Grey wears comfy tennis shoes most of the time. Who could blame her? Tennis shoes combine style and comfort for one of the best footwear options available.

​What look like Meredith’s comfiest shoes are her white and gray tennis shoes. They are a very close match to these Nike women’s Vapor Court tennis shoes.

Grey’s most fashionable shoes (in my opinion) are her navy Converse. Which are the same as these Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers! These come in the low-top cut style and have been the shoe of choice for punks, hipsters and now even interns.​

Dresses/Accessories

Grey's Anatomy Meredith Grey Lab Coat and Scrubs

Meredith is known to wear a dress or two on Grey’s Anatomy. When she goes out with “McDreamy” - aka Dr. Shepherd - she dresses to impress. Many times wearing her hair in an up-do.

It might surprise you to learn that you can find an adorable dress like Ms. Grey would wear for an affordable price, but it’s true!

​Meredith’s black dress looks just like this L’alysse v-neck pleated dress.

​To complete the dress, we also have an accessory - which is a tan belt. This 1/2" brown belt matches the style of Meredith Grey without question.

Here is a stethoscope that looks like the one Meredith Grey uses. It comes in Caribbean blue and features a “tunable diaphragm.”​

Dr. Grey has some of the comfiest articles of clothing that I have found so far. I personally can’t wait to see just what is in store for us in the twelfth season of Grey’s Anatomy!​
