A lot went down at New York Fashion Week. Calvin Klein brought back denim with denim, Marc Jacobs revived our love for retro outerwear; show goers celebrated the rebirth of the beloved logo tee.
But the trend we’re most excited for? The return of fashion’s favourite neutral: grey.
Known for its versatility, grey took prominence at NYFW this year, a staple amongst collections from Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Designers worked the hue across the spectrum, and in a range of styles and silhouettes – from sleek two-piece suits to figure-hugging knitted dresses and chunky cable knits.
Keep reading for novel ways to work grey into your wardrobe this season.
For an effortless look that’s comfortably chic, opt for soft layers in shades of silvery grey. Knitwear offerings this season will include a number of relaxed silhouettes – perfect pieces to team with cropped, loose-fit trousers or your favourite denim. Complement shades of grey with crisp whites such as a basic tee, or a pair of low-cut sneakers.
This winter the little black dress will be rivalled by its little grey counterpart. Featuring hyper-feminine, slim silhouettes with high collars and modest hemlines, the season staple will be offered in shades of silver, platinum and grey marle. To anchor the look, step into a pair of sleek, knee-high leather boots, as seen on the runway at Victoria Beckham’s NYFW show.
The grey overcoat will be everywhere this season, and for good reason – it’s timeless. The flawless finishing touch for any ensemble, this will be your perfect blank canvas for all winter accessories – chunky scarves, chic leather gloves or knitted beanies. For a little grey coat inspiration, look to collections by Bianca Spender, Lee Mathews and Viktoria + Woods.
