For a classic neutral that wears well season in and season out, Grey always offers alot of options. Melange, speckled, marle, charcoal, silver, pewter, concrete... it's softer than blacks and warmer than whites and more forgiving than browns. Mix it with navy, camel or cream for a refreshing take on a luxe wintery outfit.
It could be a thick rib knit, a wool pant, a sumptuous leather bag (yes please!) or a silky dress... whatever the piece, let grey in; combine it with your 'already in the wardrobe' basics; embrace it's timelessness, and get ready to have a set of go to pieces for every season.
Don't forget a bright red lip like the one sported by Bette Franke below.
