Though the New York Times bestselling series 50 Shades of Grey suggests a slightly more risque take on fashion, we’re going for a more literal approach. As a usual fall staple color, grey is integrated in our wardrobes by way of pea coats, pants, dresses and (of course) boots. However, during this fall the ever popular shade is super on trend and is one of the many “it” colors to wear. Other autumn must-haves are oxblood, purple, and black and white mixes. Neutrals with a twist are definitely huge staples for the season ahead and grey in particular may seem to be the bore out of the bunch, but that’s not so! Grey can actually be an ideal backdrop (or star) of an outfit if used creatively. It exudes sophistication and elegance without batting an eyelash. Get your mind going with ideas by checking out our all-in-on round-up of chic grey looks including celebrity style, F/W 2012 collections, and looks straight from the streets of New York City!
