This month’s mini wardrobe plan is all about the color grey and tone on tone dressing. Grey, from charcoal to pearl, has enjoyed several seasons on the fashion trending list. And dressing in grey from head-to-toe was a prominent look on many runways. So for this fall season, think about adding the color grey to your closet.
|Wall Street Grey, Dark Grey /Metallic Silver Pinstripe, Salt and Pepper|
Metallic is another big trend for Fall 2014. This Dark Grey/Metallic Pinstripe is perfect for those that want just a touch of sparkle and not the full on shine. The metallic in this fabric is so subtle that it can work in an office environment. A vest would look chic worn with the Wall Street Grey suit or a pair of wide leg pants worn with the solid grey jacket. Consider making a dress and have fun playing with the lengthwise, crosswise and diagonal direction of the stripes for an edgy feel. And it would look great as part of a color blocked outfit. Add this Dark Grey/Metallic Silver Pinstripe to your wardrobe for just a touch of sparkle and an instant update. Pattern Suggestions: Vogue 9024, Capital Chic Cosmopolitan, New Look 6914
Our last fabric in this monochrome palette is an iridescent cotton and silk blend, Salt and Pepper. It is the perfect weight to transition from warm weather into the cooler months. For a corporate look a shirtdress could be just the ticket. And for days when a meeting is on the calendar, pair it the Dark Grey/Metallic Silver Pinstripe vest and/or the Wall Street Grey Jacket. Another option is a blouse to wear with the Wall Street Grey Suit or to be worn under a sheath dress. Sew a wrap top if that’s more your style and pair it with pants made from the Pinstripe and go out for a night on the town. And for weekend glam a pleated skirt worn with a t-shirt is perfect for shopping! Pattern Suggestions: Colette Patterns Zinnia, Burda Style 3/2020 #122, McCalls 6696
So whether your preference is to make a suit or separates, take a fresh look at the color grey and make it a head to toe color moment.
