Chic, clean, minimal, sophisticated. Those are the words I'd use to describe the color grey. And I very much appreciate looks that are chic, clean, minimal, and sophisticated. Consequently, I very much appreciate grey.
Head-to-toe grey made its debut on the Fall 2015 runways. Grey power suits, grey turtlenecks paired with cigarette pants, and grey double-breasted jackets paired with midi skirts were featured by designers like Armani, Theory, and Vivienne Westwood.
Now, although I'm all about a full-on (grey) monochromatic look, I know some of you are not. Not all about monochromatic looks. Which is why, aside from supplying you with some head-to-toe grey looks (suits, sets, dresses), I've also showcased some grey separates.
And if you do love monochromatic outfits, but you just don't like any of the monochromatic outfits above, another way to achieve the same result is by pairing two separate grey pieces together. Like that comfy grey turtleneck with the maxi pleated grey skirt. Or that grey crewneck sweater with one of those grey trousers.
But again, if grey on grey is too overwhelming for you, pair one grey item with a totally different colored article of clothing. You'll still be right on trend. Because you're still wearing grey. Just not ALL OVER. But like I said, there's nothing wrong with "all-over" grey in my book. That's where a monochromatic grey look would come in.
Um, why do I get this feeling we're going in circles here? Hmmm...
On a completely unrelated note, always a risk:
