Grey (via dictionary.com)
of a neutral tone, intermediate between black and white…dismal or dark, gloomy…neutral or dull.
All ways I would also describe the month of January. Without the Christmas lights and decorations everything starts to look a little gloomy… however grey does not have to be dull! Grey is an all-flattering colour as it comes in so many shades and is less stark on the skintone than jet black! It’s an effortlessly chic colour appropriate for day and night and especially for the working girl. It can be worked as shown above in a number of different ways from office wear e.g. the Zara overcoat or long pleated skirt, for the pretty/boho in the ASOS grey sheer pleated dress or the rock chic in the horse print mini-dress paired with a leather jacket and heels. It’s such an accessible shade and can be accented with colour. Turquoise blues and coral pinks work particularly well for a pop of colour!
Don’t know where to start adding grey to your closet? You can’t go wrong with a grey cashmere jumper! Effortless and easy.

Being an absolute scarf and snood fiend I thought it was only right that I showed a few of my fave pics of the season available online and on the high street. Scarfs, snoods and shawls are one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe they can dress up any old t-shirt, coat or act as an alternative to wearing one at all (shawls!). I like to have huge black scarf/shawl with me while travelling on trains or planes for when it gets cold which it usually does! River Island have actually come up with the goods this season where you’ll see many of choices are from including this galaxy print scarf which I’m already in love with and will be bought very very soon!Miss Selfridge have a great grey and white skull print scarf a nod to Alexander McQueen no doubt. I also adore this red snood from Topshop it looks so warm and cozy. However as it’s only August there are jersey alternatives which are lightweight but still handy on cold evenings to throw in your bag!
I know many people still are yet to get on board with the snoods but they’re unbelievably comfortable and save you struggling with the right way to tie your scarf…I couldn’t recommend them more!
