How to Wear Grey and Look Fabulous – Top Tips.
1. Wear grey with colour. If you are the sort of person who loves to wear a real pop of colour in your outfits then grey is the perfect base colour to team them with. From hot fuschia pink to soft sorbet shades, all colours will work with grey.
As a rule the lighter the shade of grey the darker the colour should be so if you are going to select a deep cobalt blue then wear with a light grey shade, but if you are going to wear a soft pink then opt for a darker shade of grey.
2. Wear grey with black or white. If you want to wear grey in a working environment then it is a good colour to style with black or white. Sometimes an all black look is too stark and colour sometimes is not right for a working environment but styling with grey can give a really Professional look.
Style a grey suit with a bright white shirt, or a grey dress with a black jacket. If you do want to introduce a splash of colour into your look then add a bright coloured scarf.
3. Wear head to toe grey. If you are the type of person that likes to go head to toe in one colour then grey is a great colour to choose. The trick to this type of styling is to create interest in your outfit by mixing different textures together and styling with different shades of grey.
Try mixing heavy tweed fabrics with soft silks, or heavy linen with soft cotton. This is a look that can be really dramatic if you get the fabrics right.
4. Pick the right accessories. The colour grey works well with silver accessories, so if you prefer jewellery as your accessory of choice then go for necklace, bracelets and earrings that have a silver tone to them.
If you prefer scarves or fabrics as your choice of accessory then you will have a wide selection of colours to choose from as grey works with so much. Think the lighter the shade of grey the darker the colour accessory and you won’t go wrong.
