Grey does not have to be impossible
“Who does grey look good on anyway?” my sister in law Shirim asked me this morning, echoing the sentiments of many, and possibly you. For years I too was convinced it was a color that made me look like death, but then I realized that all you need is a nice bold lip to counteract the washing-out effect it can have. Also, I follow the advice of former Sassy fashion editor, Mary Clarke, who once told me that if there’s a color you love that doesn’t exactly suit you, just make certain you’ve got another, more flattering hue closest to your face.
I still haven’t gotten myself a is velvet blazer—I’ve been coveting one for over a year now—and this one is very nearly perfect.
Light grey pants can be unflattering if you’ve got hips—or at least that is the fear—but these are not only excellently cut, they’re satisfyingly dark.
This fine-striped tee would be excellent for layering.
The dog chewed my perfect grey suede Vans (which were limited-edition and no longer available, of course) so I’m thinking of getting these as a substitute.
I love the faded-out look here, and I usually dislike when clothes are pre-faded or distressed.
I looked at a few V-neck sweaters for this post, and this is the one I liked best: nice and roomy and slouchy.
Just a super-cute star tee.
This cardigan has such a great live-in-it-always feel.
And from Kara: this streamlined backpack.
I love the idea of a grey suede boot, and these are pretty much exactly right.
