Gear up for Fall, And It Need not be Gray

Gray is a beautiful, sophisticated colour and is flattering for any skin tone. But one need not be decked head to toe in gray, which I am seeing too much this fall winter on runways and the real life. Smart gray coats and jackets can be livened up with bright reddish brown fox fur, unique shapes and cuttings such as my favourite boxy menswear inspired Shogun sleeve style. At the Gaetano Navarra Fall Winter 2009-10 collection, waxy and shiny textured windbreaker coats, oversized knits and braids sweaters with grape-like detailing, beautiful Victorian shirts that resembled folds of huge flower petals, glittery dandelion print skirts which look like dancing fireworks from afar and skinny tailored pants ruled the runway.

  1. I so agree with you. I love gray and monotone colours and therefore most of my outfits are black, gray and white. Just simple and always working!

  2. Hello Jyun,

    I agree....I agree...with U! Great post! I like the gray, but superb idea with a berry colour to pair. It will not be monotonous... by the way love the huge/oversized knitted think on catwalk photos.

    Have a great weekend!

    XoXo

  18. I also love grey, but of course not from head to toe !(but with one excepton - light cotton grey from head-to-toe, its so pastell and beautiful)I am always wondering why people are wearing dark colors when the weather is getting colder and colder, nad shame on me but i'm one of them... so the mystery is more difficult to find out ;)
    I love these outfit, think they are just so timeless with the fur and victorian details!
