If you know me, you know that I am not going to be the first person lining up to wear the hot colour of Fall Winter 2015 – Grey. Strangely enough, when I wear all black I get people asking me why I am not wearing colour. Am I really always in colour? All I know is that no matter what you wear, you need to make it work, and in the fashion world, this means, elegance, surprise, proportion and can I add to this – charm?
So this brings me to the colour people are surprised to see me in – grey. Yes dolls, grey matters! Although is is tagged as this season’s colour trend, I don’t recall a FW season where we don’t spot grey on the runways. It seems to make a come back very year. I think this is due to the earthy nature of this colour, and the fact that – yes, good news, it’s kind of like black in that you can add a POC (pop of colour), and it make it fun and interesting. Pastels tend to always work well with grey, but you don’t need to stop there. No pastels in your closet? Not to worry doll face. You can add red, black, turquoise, purple, you name it.
If you want to just stick with grey, then be sure to add some fun accessories, such as a fringed stiletto heel and an on trend motto jacket. The easy thing about wearing grey is that you can add any different layers and shades and with very little ease, you will look like you are coming straight from the catwalk.
As I always advocate, when wearing black, I keep yelling at you to be sure to have texture. same thing with a neutral cooler such as grey. Look at how fabulous grey looks when it’s actually got texture!
Grey is so hot this year, Prada even made a version of a grey bag in a bag. It is spectacular when paired with yellow. So the moral of this post is, wear grey to your heart’s content but if you do it right, your heart will be singing a tune you will love.
Go on and Grey things up my sweets. If I can inspire myself to wear grey, I am sure you can all start pulling out fab finds in your closet today!
