Gradients of Grey


50 shades of grey? No, not just the steamy movie that is set to hit theatres soon… I mean the 50 shades of grey you can choose to wear this season. Is grey the new black? I think so. This winter, grey has been popping up all over the place. Colour combinations that you wouldn’t necessarily think of like grey and orange, grey and green, or grey on grey are on the backs of many people strutting their stuff in Tokyo.

Like past seasons, colour blocking is huge and I was thrilled to see the many different combinations of black on black, white on white, and grey on grey. Personally, I think the key to choosing the right pieces to colour block is to not have the shade be too drastic from each other and to mix it up with different textures. It is easy to get lost in the many different layers we tend to wear in the colder climates of the world. Just try and choose something that can easily break up the layers like a dress shirt under your sweater, tying a shirt around your hips (90’s fashion), or by using a thin belt to give your waist some definition. If you are a little apprehensive of wearing all black for reasons unbeknownst to me (love myself some slimming black), why not opt for trying out a grey gradient. You will be replicating the everyday winter sky into your wardrobe. A darker grey for more mysterious look or a lighter grey for a more luminescent feel.

Here are some of my go to casual looks for grey on grey. What are some of your go to grey pieces?
