Mellow into Fall with the season’s go-to hue.
My fave neutral – grey – has taken center stage this Fall. I call it the “ultimate neutral” and it’s exactly that. You can wear it in place of basic black and it does the most amazing thing for your look by adding instant cool factor, while being subtlely chic. What more could you ask for from a neutral?
During NYFW, designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Theysken’s Theory and Proenza Schouler presented greys – from ash to deep charcoal, from outerwear to accessory.

For a look that works for everyday (read: that won’t wash you out), try adding a fun pop of unexpected color to your head to toe grey ensemble. Heck, if you’re print happy like your’s truly, feel free to add a bit of that, too. Here’s how I wore my grey look recently.
Alexander Wang sweater / Uniqlo wool wrap skirt (similar here) / Khirma Eliazov clutch (similar here) / Zara heels (fab similar option here and here) / Mercura shades / silk turban by me! / Custom bangle by Castro NYC (similar here) / Vintage necklace / Forever 21 ring
Beauty: Maybelline lipstick in Very Cherry / Revlon ColorStay foundation in Cappacino for Combination/Oily skin (stays on literally all day!-my new fave : )
Go for monotone grey or mix light ash hues with dark charcoals
Play with proportions! Here, I did a roomy sweater with a short skirt for balance
Add one vibrant accessory as an accent color, fire engine red is a good choice
