Expect an abundance of gray this fall season among the fashion forward. The color gray/charcoal/slate, what ever hue catches your fancy, has been appropriated as the ‘new neutral’ for the season and was seen all over the fall 2013 runways. I’m not one to always follow trends, but I’m a big fan of the color and embracing it for the fall season.
What to expect from the color and why it’s so fabulous:
1.) It goes with EVERYTHING – what better way to mix and match what you already have with a few pieces of gray?
Gray and plums (notice the plum in my scarf above) would be beautiful for fall and so would ochre yellow or a cobalt blue. These three bold colors are stunning and perfect shades for the cooler season. The dress I have on below was the perfect summer maxi dress. For fall I plan on combining my fun motorcycle leather jacket (leather jacket in picture above) or a chunky cardigan with it.
Gray dress from the Gypsy Mobile Boutique – it’s fashion on wheels and completely affordable. The dress was under $40. Check her out: https://www.facebook.com/#!/gypsymobileboutique
2.) It’s sexy for the cooler months. Warm color that invites seductive sparkles like this gray tank. I’m not very ‘seductive,’ but try or at least make fun of myself with a wink (Express tank, Thrift Town, $7.99)
A charcoal and black striped sweater (Rachel Roy, Thrift Town, ($9.99 minus 30%) or dress would be striking as well. Don’t forget a rad pair of sunnies. I LOVE the reflective ones below that I got at SPCA thrift for $6!
If you have any questions on how to wear gray or style the pieces you already have, please don’t hesitate to ask me!
