To be honest with you, I was not a fan of grey for a long time.., simply because I had never found this colour cheerful.
Someone I once went out with for eighteen months, was an alcoholic and was also battling depression. His favourite colour? Grey! After seeing about 500 shades of grey T-shirts; suits and so on for one and a half years, I was totally convinced that grey and dark mood went hand in hand.
My change of mind came from a female friend of mine; who once said to me, “Grey is such a feminine tone, you’d look amazing in it!”
‘Really?’ I had some doubt. But I have to admit that I love pearl grey, perhaps it’s close to silver.
If I go for a grey outfit, I’d choose the cooler shade of it, and I don’t mind the dramatic shades such as: stormy sky grey; dark sandy grey and deep charcoal.
With my very limited grey choices in my wardrobe, I put together the above grey+grey+grey ensemble.
Do you have any grey in your wardrobe? If not, don’t panic! There are plenty choices out there, some only a mouse click away!
As I’m learning to embrace the shades of the moment, seriously, grey is elegant; urban; cool and timeless… So, ‘It can’t be that bad, right?’ And, for you who has any doubt, here’s my answer:
‘YES! Grey IS the new black!!’
