The quintessential colour of Autumn/winter

The light in Autumn and Winter and the crispness of the days make grey truly a colour of the Autumn/Winter season.

Far from being boring the colour spectrum of grey from silver to charcoal makes it a versatile and stylish colour in your wardrobe.

Grey need not be boring and here are tips for creating stylish looks wearing the quniessential colour of the Autumn/Winter season.


Tailored double-breasted grey woollen coats make a statement. A tailored full length grey coat will work over dark business style suits, white and coloured knits. If worried about the grey draining you of colour, opt for a bright colour with a turtleneck to wear underneath it.

Colour combinations

Light greys – dove grey or silver look beautiful with white. Try also navy blue and black.

Darker greys work well with taupe colours and are good for people who look better in warmer toned colours.


Dark greys such as charcoal are perfect if you have shorter legs as they will help create the illusion of length. Similarly, avoid light grey pants as they will tend to make you look shorter.

Alternatively try a three-quarter length dress and add light grey knee length boots to create contrast and to lengthen your torso.

Team with florals

A very cute look for Autumn is to wear a light grey oversized jumper over a floral summer style dress.

An alternative is to add a rich colour and fabric to grey such as red velvet to create a luxe winter look.


Grey on grey can be a very stylish look when layered. Use checks and different textures to add interest to this kind of look.
