SHINE BRIGHT IN CLASSIC GREY

Grey is not the new black. It's more like its refined older sibling - a soft alternative to black that exudes balance, maturity and wisdom. From Haze and Granite to Silver and Cygnet, elegant grey hues are the perfect neutral backdrop from which a bright personality can shine. Here’s how to wear this timeless classic shade without feeling like a wallflower.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SKIN TONE

Selecting the appropriate shade of grey is all about your natural colouring - much like choosing between gold and silver jewellery. Cooler skin tones can look excessively pale wearing lighter shades of grey but will dazzle in a rich charcoal hue. Warmer skin tones will look stunning next to light grey and silver. If you've found a shade of grey you love, but you don't feel it makes you glow, try wearing it further away from your face. Team grey bottoms with a patterned or brightly coloured top - perhaps emerald, red or yellow.

FLATTER YOUR SHAPE

Grey can be every bit as forgiving as black if you pay attention to detail. Swathes of a solid colour won't accentuate your silhouette, so go for structured tailored pieces or accentuate your waist with a belt.

Our Silver Cashmere Dress is incredibly flattering, due in part to the absence of seams. We use Japanese Wholegarment Technology to deliver smooth contours along with unmatched comfort and style.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT PARTNER

Gorgeous grey provides a relatively blank canvass on which to paint bright, playful shades. Try pastels with light grey and bolder options with slate grey and granite. Grey and white is a fresh and youthful combination, while teaming grey with other neutrals such as camel and navy will offer a timeless look.

ADD INTEREST WITH TEXTURE

If you’re still concerned that wearing grey might feel a little dreary, add interest by playing with textures. Our Silver Cashmere Dress has a whisper-soft ribbed design, while our Cashmere Engineered Cable Roll Neck has a tactile, pillowy feel.

Our men's Exploded Check Jumper, and our Intarsia Checked Cardigan each have a chunky knit finish without losing any of the softness for which our Cashmere is famous. Grey might traditionally remind us of cloudy skies, but with a bit of planning, it can be the ray of sunshine your wardrobe has been waiting for.
