How to Wear Grey to Suit Your Colouring

Grey is one of those really useful neutrals to have in your wardrobe – and everyone can wear it. Don’t just reserve it for winter or business wear though. It looks great in linen for hot summer days as well as a shimmering dress for party wear.

For Light colouring choose a Silver or mid Storm Grey. Although this dress has black in the print by wearing a light Pastel Pink jacket you can make it work. Other great options for Light colouring to mix with grey are Apricot, Pastel Blue and Mint.

For Deep colouring choose Charcoal and mix your with black (although I am itching to add some colour to this look) if you are too, try True Red, Purple or Forest Green.

Of all the dominants the Warm has the most trouble with grey. So make sure you wear it with a colour that really “warms” it up. As an alternative to a Buttercup Yellow try Aqua, Amber or Camel.

As a complete opposite to Warm, the Cool dominant does grey well and can choose from a light Silver through to Charcoal. Use all of your blues and pinks including Hot Pink, Rose Pink and Purples or Violet.

Softs need that expensive blended look so choose a Storm or Charcoal Grey and add Duck Egg, Blush or Soft Aqua or choose one of your pinks like Cassis.

The Bright dominant needs contrast and can wear a Charcoal Grey with a bright Cobalt or an Icy colour. Alternatively with a Silver Grey choose Scarlet, Apple Green or Light Aqua.
