HOW TO SPOT GREY
Grey is an intermediate color between the extremes of black and white. Grey is the perfect neutral color.
BEST GREYS COME IN
For the longest time, we’ve been able to see grey suits flashing everyone’s closet, right? From light grey suits to dark grey suits which are perfect for an office look that will leave you looking as professional.
And again, if you’re yet to see a grey outer wear, then you’re in the wrong planet! Grey coats, grey jumpers, grey blazers and grey jackets are just everywhere! These are the perfect antidote to your severe lack of variation in the outer wear department.
Many brands also have collections of tees and shirts in grey and for sue, grey is such a pick for such outfits especially if you’d love a look with no embellishments and no much detail.
As well, it is just inevitable to come across a grey pair of shoes or even a grey bag. What I mean is that grey is such an excellent color for your footwear as well as your accessories which will also include: scarfs, mavins, gloves, caps and belts.
HOW TO WEAR THE GREY ON GREY
Wondering how to pull off the grey on grey look and not look drab? Then ride through this grey-on-grey outfit guide. Since monochrome was men’s street style at the New York Fashion Week, 2018, variations of the monochromatic looks have been popping up lately for so much colors. This can also be embraced for this color grey, that is such a loved laid back color.
1. Learn to mix different textures in grey
It can be very tricky to wear grey on grey since if not worn too well, it might turn out into a really boring look. For dull colors such as grey, the fabric of your color will work to brighten it up making it look good on you.
Always let the material of your color grey to be sleek. I mean, avoid poor quality fabrics for your grey. Great denim jeans will always be everyone’s option but fabrics such as stretchy cotton and leather are also just fine.
For the grey-on-grey look, learn to mix textures like cotton, denim, wool, suede or even leather. This mix of fabrics and textures will eventually provide a suave contrast for your whole look.
2. Match shades of grey
For a grey-on-grey look, especially in casual, mix different shades of grey for your whole ensemble. Play around with the light greys and dark greys subtly like Prissy Savvy is with an ash grey top and a light grey pencil skirt. Just a perfect whole grey ensemble, right?
3.Get that grey suit!
I always and will forever advocate for perfectly tailored pieces for any other color and yes, a perfectly suited grey look will be the perfect monochrome. A grey suit will definitely capture a more relaxed and sophisticated vibe.
Very disappointing can grey be when it comes to accessorizing it.
To establish a classic and professional look, accessorize grey with black; from black shoes, black jewelry to that black hand bag .I mean, just go for neutral colors especially black or white.
And very importantly, learn to cherish metallic for you grey. Silvery or gold will do your outfit some killer elevation. It will always be the perfect option wherever you’re caught up in a style rut.
As well, when trying to go bold with grey, opt for red or yellow accessories which will definitely give a little pizzazz to the grey-on-grey look!
I went for a minimal look defined by wearing a dark grey pair of jeans with a grey cowl neck top then finished off with silvery grey pointed heels. At times, we can be a little creative with our wear. Instead of wearing tops normally, we can try tuck it in the sides for some swag.
This is such a relaxed casual look that can perfectly transition from a church wear to what you’ll wear to shopping to look you’ll have when visiting your parents over the weekend.
As much as it is decent, it is chic and easy in a sophisticated way. Let this look be your next go-to lovelies. What do you think about the whole grey-on-grey ensemble?
