Grey: Is It The New Black?

“New year equals new black.”

After all, if there’s anything the fashion world is guilty of, it’s that it grows tired of trends easily. Even the color black simply isn’t good enough anymore – at least, for now. Grey is unofficially the new black, becoming a favorite hue of designers for 2010.

3.1 Phillip Lim’s Resort line for 2010 was dominated by a palette of grey. Draping and shirring added particular areas of interest to the rather shy shade of grey Lim used:

To keep an all-grey outfit ineresting, Lim accessorized with brown bags or belts and ornate grey chokers.

Do you feel that grey is too timid for you to consider it the new black? Add panache to grey items in your wardrobe by pairing them with metallics! 3.1 Phillip Lim’s 2010 Resort wear used shimmery gold pants to keep a blousy grey shirt urban and hip:

Pair different shades of grey together, like in this relaxed 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort ensemble:

Is grey is too dull for you? There are many ways to cheer it up! Wear your grey suit over ruffled tops with pastel or bright colors.

Add feminine chic to grey by wearing it with pink! DKNY’s 2010 Spring collection have grey shirts, skirts, dresses, and suits that are drool-worthy. New Year’s resolution: will buy DKNY before January ends!

I love how DKNY’s 2010 Spring collection features loose, flab-hiding cuts. Wearing their great greys will help hide holiday weight!

Hey, even my font color is grey. Haha!
