Grey is such a stylish alternative to black—if you feel like you might wear too much of that, which I definitely do. But it’s pretty tricky on me—it washes me out—so I take care to follow the advice a fashion editor once gave me, and wear another, more flattering color closest to my face. I realize that might be a tough trick to pull off with a turtleneck sweater like this one, but I still like it a lot: it’s nicely oversized, but has a good shape.
This pinstripe blazer from Cos is so very slouchily elegant.
A ribbed polo shirt that’d be great layered under a cardigan.
I’m still intrigued by all the sweater vests out there this season, and I really dig the collar on this one.
How cute are these Comme des Garcons PLAY sneakers in grey?
And here’s just a really perfect sweatshirt; I dig the side slits especially.
Certain colors pop really well against grey, and I’d argue that red is one of those colors, and therefore I’m a big fan of this easy flannel shirt.
This is the kind of turtleneck sweater we should all own one of: it’s comfy, soft cashmere, and thin enough to layer with.
I’ve caught flack from some quarters lately for showing clothes that are too boxy, and I’m trying to improve on that front, but this V-neck is appealing exactly because it’s boxy, and that is just going to have to be OK.
I like that these lace-up boots both look like suede and are water-resistant.
I think the jungle creatures on this sweater are just adorable, without being the least bit cutesy.
Here’s Madewell’s popular Whisper Tee, which is so soft and cheap, and will last you a while just so long as you keep it out of the dryer.
The breast pocket on this sweater from ATM is a nice polished touch.
I’ve never been a fan of long cardigans but this season they’re appealing to me; this one is especially good because it looks more tailored than most of them do.
This short-sleeved sweatshirt isn’t left in many sizes, but it’s so good and maybe you’ll get lucky.
Just a rather perfect recycled wool peacoat that looks pricier than it is (while still being not exactly cheap).
The contrast of grey fleece with brown details is so unexpected-but-cool on this jacket.
And here is Rag & Bone’s ever-popular Slade Blazer, which I still haven’t purchased but am forever tempted to.
I think this half-zip sweatshirt is very nearly perfect, and very of the moment.
And finally: a thick cashmere sweater that is splurgy, yes, but would probably kill it on the cost-per-wear.
