Hello there 🙂
The spring 2020 runways showed a number of fantastic color trends at almost every point on the color wheel, and yet the hue that we predict to be the most important for this season falls into a more practical, timeless, and rather boring category – and no, it's not beige , Ironically, from charcoal to slate to smoke, we saw so many shades of gray appearing that this non-color became one of the biggest color trends.
Moda Operandi noted in their runway report that these cool grays recorded a 36% increase in sales. Since the color has a timeless sophistication, it is not difficult to understand why customers are attracted to its long-lasting appeal. On the runways, designers imagined this unique color in sleek, modern silhouettes. The new gray is underlined by a cool edge from the nineties, which manifested itself in sharp suits at Givenchy, elegant usage styles at Max Mara and luxurious gray knitwear like we saw at Prada.
The key to keeping the look fresh and modern is to wear the color palette from head to toe and mix several shades of gray in your outfit. But if a full "Groutift" isn't your thing, try mixing gray pieces with other neutral colors like "yes", "beige", "black" and "white". Also play with textures such as a gray tweed blazer, an anthracite pleated skirt or a soft, dusty gray wool coat.
