50 Shades of Grey: runway trend

by Hannah Ikin -

This winter, the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon isn't limited to movie theaters... in fact, the staple shade is one of the most popular tones of the moment. The proof? The Autumn/Winter runways from fashion houses such as Acne Studios, Céline and Michael Kors were awash with the shade, from deep charcoal to soft dove grey.

Gorgeous in grey

If you don't have anything grey in your winter wardrobe yet, don't panic. We've got the low-down on the trend so be sure to take notes before embarking on your next shopping spree!

The sweatshirt: Invest in a simple grey sweatshirt and you won't regret it - it'll help you look cosy and chic all winter long!

The overcoat: if you're buying a coat, then why not opt for one in charcoal grey? It'll go with everything and is so classic that it will never go out of style!

The slip dress: Looking for a dress that's both sexy and on-trend? Opt for a satin slip dress in grey, as seen at H&M. Want to make the look a little more "daytime"? Just throw a leather jacket over the top for a lovely layered look.

Prints: To bring some visual interest to your look, choose a sweater or skirt with graphic or Baroque-esque print detail. Alternatively, copy the look seen at Acne Studios by pairing a pretty, printed jacket with a white dress.

100% grey: If you're feeling daring, then why not dress head to toe in grey? Have fun and play with contrasting textures and shades, like the models at Marc by Marc Jacobs!

The oversized coat: A real winter wardrobe staple, as well as a great way to wear the androgynous trend, the XXL coat will be even more on point if you wear it in grey! Personally, we'll be hunting for a speckled one like those seen at Stella McCartney.

So, are you ready to make some space for this It-shade in your wardrobe?
