Autumn’s here. Cue the earth, tan, monotone, black and grey hues. However, dressing in such colour pallets does not mean we have to look dull. Here are a few pointers on how to rock grey tones without looking dowdy.
For starters, grey colour pallets often translate class and formal occasions. so if you are going to go for a grey dominated outfit make sure it’s looking as classy as can can be. Of course adding your personal touch is essential. Grey works best in three ways. You can either go grey all the way, mix several grey tones or mix grey with brighter tones. Visualize this.
1. Grey All The Way
If you are going to wear grey, go for everything grey. It might sound crazy and you might think it would appear dull but this works most of the time provided the right pieces are combined together. Bold make-up might also help in this case to kill the grey monotone.
grey looks better when you show off some skin like Zoe has done here. Covering up in full sleeves and a turtle neck in an all grey outfit kills the look instantly.
Kate Moss gives her all grey look a touch of glam with bold red lips.
Ciara and Rihanna go for laid back rocker chick grey.
Tyra Banks looks great in her skin tight grey dress and grey pumps.
2. Mix ‘N’ Match Grey Tones.
Another way to wear grey is to mix several grey tones. This works wonders especially if you’re trying to transform a dull look to a stunning one.
3. Grey Colour Blocking.
The 3rd way to update any grey look would be to colour block with other bright hues. Grey looks great with so many other colours because it is a neutral colour. So add some yellow, red, green, bright blue, orange . Whatever you feel like and make your grey look pop.
Good luck making your greys come together and stand out and share your success stories.
Thanks for indulging.
