Grey embodies much of the winter dullness we try to avoid (for the sake of our mental states), but when layered just right in fashion terms it becomes a bastion of elegance and sophistication.
Take this cover and editorial spread of the legendary baby-faced Sasha Pivovarova for example. Photographed by Josh Olins for The Last Magazine‘s , Sasha looks super cozy and none the less chic.
There is one rule with wearing any colour head-to-toe, and that is to play with texture. Layer all sorts of knits, and you will look smashing for sure. The knitted Alexander Wang hood-like piece has been an editorial hit, as well as the Celine wrap (taken to the next level) slate coloured jacket that we just can’t get out of our minds.
Above are some runway looks from Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander Wang, Christian Dior & Celine.
Since we’re on the topic of grey, I (Natalie) recently went on a whim and purchased this gorgeous salt and pepper toned “Brussels Jacket” by Nique. It reminds me of European winter, and psychologically makes me feel like I’m truly in Brussels (as it’s name suggests).
