Winter loves Grey: )
Can you imagine your winter wardrobe without the colour Grey? I simply can’t!! It feels like a “Fashion Faux Pas” to miss this tint in my winter collection for sure!
Gone are the days when “Grey” was considered boring!! Grey is the new “White” or “Black” I would say. This hue makes me feel calmer, balanced and in control even when I am dressed up in the most casual attire. I love my entire collection of Greys – from tracks, hoods, shorts, jumpers, sweaters, cardigans, trousers, caps etc. This neutral colour is the coolest colour this season. This shade worn anytime looks elegant and classic. The Soft Grey Relaxed wear is rather stylish and my favourite this season.
Grey makes me feel dominant and powerful. Yes there is some seriousness attached to the look and that’s why Grey has been a popular colour for school uniforms and work wear. But now, clothes and fabrics with different shades of Grey have given a new dimension to the vibe of an outfit. Greys go well with all colours- blue, white , black, pink, orange, yellow, red etc . When combined with pastels and brighter colours it heightens the other shades and yet stands out independently – That’s the beauty of ” Grey ” !!
Do you know Grey was a highly fashionable colour in the 18th Century for both women’s dresses and men’ s waistcoats and coats. Grey also became “the colour of the military uniform” as men in dark grey could not become easy targets for their enemies. They were worn in “the American Civil War” and the German Army wore it both in the First and the Second World War.
In the 19th Century, different tones of grey were being used to make the most charismatic paintings by famous artists. Men in Grey Flannel suits looked intriguing at all times. From Fashion to Art, to business, industrialisation, architecture, interiors etc. Grey has been a ruling colour.
This is a perfect weather to snug up in my woollen over the knee sock and my soft, comfy, high neck jumper. These thigh hugging socks have become a rage of the season. They come in different colours and knit designs. They not only look sexy but keep you warm. This combination is perfect not only to laze in your abode, but also is a head turner when worn with tan brown boots and a brown or a colourful sling bag.
It is undeniable that there is something so alluring about the colour Grey. It is a unanimously loved shade and looks amazing on everyone.
I love my jumper and sock. They are available at brands like Zara, H&M, Marks & Spencer, Next, Wallis, Dorothy Perkins, etc.
Each shade of grey brings out a new you. A darker shade can make you look mysterious and a lighter one – sporty and fresh. The grey relaxed looks are here to stay as they bring out the softness in your personality. It has a hint of simplicity, far away from complexity. It adds a clean vibe to your persona.
The speciality of all shades of grey is that it can be worn with any colour and it will hold it’s ground like a ruler!! From Elephant Greys to Charcoal, from Dull to Metallic, From Ice Grey to Soft Silver – we love to play with shades of grey 🙂 !!!
