Do you remember that ages ago, way back in January, I wrote a piece about how grey was going to be big this Spring. Well now Spring is now here and grey is everywhere in the shops. I have had people tell me that they would love to wear grey but they feel that it makes them look washed out. Whilst I can understand this fear I still think grey is a great colour that anyone can wear. For example you can warm a grey outfit up with splashes of blush pink. Or perhaps if you fancy a edgier look a bright pop of colour is more up your street.
Grey doesn’t need to be drab. Actually reasearch has suggested that wearing grey signals to people that you are,
However, it has also been suggested that you should avoid wearing grey if you are feeling lonely and stressed – eeeks! As a mum to two little ones I need an outfit that is practical for the school run but also if I am dashing out in the evening for drinks. Spring also marks the arrival of the slightly warmer (we live in hope) weather. I have been rocking a lot of grey this month so here is my favourite grey outfit.
April’s all grey outfit
My beloved diesel jeans were finally relegated to the bin this month and I still haven’t been able to find the perfect replacement. However, these jeans from Autograph at Marks and Spencers are the perfect stop-gap at £39.50. Grey skinny jeans that are comfortable to wear and can be dressed down with trainers or dressed up with some heels.
Classic linen vest top at £17.50 from Autograph at Marks and Spencers is perfect for the school run and great for this changeable Spring weather as I can layer easily. Leave it plain for a daytime look or add a necklace to give it more oomph for the evening.
I have a long grey cardigan which I purchased in the ASOS sales for a fiver a couple of years ago but that is no longer available. The above cardigan from ASOS costs £45.00 and is perfect for layering up. It is also gives the outfit a lovely slouchy and comfortable feel.
This little beauty is from Joules and I love wearing it as it gives any outfit a lovely pop of zesty colour. It is also the perfect way to dress up your outfit. It is called the Mika necklace and costs £29.95.
What is your favourite outfit for this month? Can I tempt you with a bit of grey?
