As summer draws to an end we begin to turn to oversized clothing and knitwear for warmth. With the cooler months approaching we come across new trends, one of them being the colour grey. It’s time to throw away the books and get the real deal by adding 50 shades of grey to your wardrobe this Autumn!
A neutral colour that falls somewhere between black and white, grey is a great colour for your cardigans, sweaters and dresses.
Featured in the collections and runways ahead of winter, grey is a must have for your style. New York Fashion Week showed us what grey has to offer with a range of designers stepping into the shade. Sophie Theallet showed off a fabulous pair of grey pants in her show, while Altuzarra paraded an elegant grey dress in his collection.
Despite the dull term for the colour, grey is a wonderful way of lightening up your wardrobe by trading black for something a bit different. Oversized sweaters are a good starting point for experimenting with the colour, giving the wearer a comfortable and stylish casual option.
Looking simple and elegant in knitwear, grey has come a long way from it’s “grandma knit” days. As a great neutral colour it can be worn casually or formally depending on the item. Australian chain store Witchery are showing off their collection of grey items with a suggested cool white ensemble for “the new season’s ultimate pairing”. Their emphasis on grey makes it appear stylish with a touch of casual all in one.
