Premature Greys

The colour grey occupies a large portion of my wardrobe. There are dressy grey items in there as well as more casual and layering pieces and pieces that I consider to be staples, like the grey cardigan. Grey, could be perhaps the best colour to wear. Strong statement, I know, but think about it: grey seems to pull any look together and it is far from the dull, 'school uniform colour' it might appear in theory, as these catwalk looks would certainly prove. I still feel its a bit early to be talking about 'winter wardrobes' and 'winter wools' and all that jazz (hence the title) but a good slouchy grey jumper can be worn all year around and a good winter coat? Well, that, perhaps can be appreciated all year around.

(This post is pretty self - explanatory, therefore the blatant lack of text!)

I do have a fondness for grey although I must admit it doesn't feature that heavily in my wardrobe. I love the space age metallic grey (which I guess is silver!).

I can't tell with words how much I loved the latest Junya Watanabe show. Truly amazing.

Great collages.

I like grey clothing, especially AW's. He is amazing! But it is so hard to find affordable grey clothes! They are all in those yucky shades of grey :/

I love grey more than black or brown really. I need more in my wardrobe and now there's so many pieces that come in it.

I love grey. I wear it a lot more than black. It isn't as harsh.

OHHH thank you for this! I love grey because it's the ultimate combination for me.. I love black and white so it makes sense, right?

I find grey the easiest colour to wear.

I agree about the grey cardigan being a wardrobe staple but am still looking for the perfect grey jumper.

Glad to hear everyone likes grey and agrees that it is a really versatile colour. Everyone needs a grey area in their wardrobe!
I understand where Yiqin is coming from though about the yucky shades of grey!
Emily - I know what you mean about the perfect grey jumper! I think i have been imagining an overized, slouchy, slightly 80s, grey jumper (my idea of the perfect one) with almost two years and still haven't found one that matches that description!
And Annie? haha those masks are certainly bizarre alright!

Elisabeth said...

I am a long time fan of grey - well done you for getting it out there!

beccajanie said...
