Fashion Confession: I’m Gray, Queen of the Closet

What excites us about this gray trend is how it has become the ultimate wardrobe warmer this Spring. Not only is it softer than white, subtler than black. Haven’t you noticed that gray is such a classic tint that even in the ancient times, women always look so futuristic with it?

Whether ancient or futuristic, gray has this unexplained power to make women walk with a much straighter back and an unidentifiable fierceness. Take it from Kimberly Ovitz where one girl is dressed in a dead-on shimmer of gray, ready to party and walk high. Ohne Titel  goes sporty in a short one-piece tracksuit with vertical orange stripes, a great contrast to its pale gray background. Prabal Gurung hustles with ruffles in high waistlines and sheer fabrics. For romantic notions, Naeem Khan, eyelet rose prints are a hit at Naeem Khan.

Jenny Packham sends her girls in lighter shades of gray, each look not missing any dab of metallics.

Hermes opts for a clean slate, remaining true to the minimalist look. Christopher Kane highlights what gray can do to a halter dress- gives it power. Clerical fashion is always in at Christian Dior, having a darker shade of ash on a double-breasted peplum suit. Florals appliques on a button down top matched with white is Chanel’s perk for the season.

Acne goes light on stripes.  Vivienne Westwood twists up a suit, puts nervy stripes on the garb and twists the longer hemline with a leg peek. Corporate and streetstyle becomes a successful attempt at Loewe. And finally, for some graphic art, Oscar de la enta brings the metropolis into the runways on a partly see-through getup, embellished with glitz that reminds one of technology and modernized cities around the world.
