Shades of grey: your winter essentials this season

We don't believe in winter wardrobe gloom. Time to cast off black as the unofficial cold-weather colour. We know better. This winter we're giving grey the attention it deserves.

Outfitting in grey gives you all the versatility that neutrals have to offer, perfect for creating an on-trend base for your outfit. From there, you can build your own style - layer up, combine shades and then inject colour with confidence.

When you're layering with grey, you have a huge range of shades at your fingertips.

Monotone grey shades pair beautifully with each other, particularly when you incorporate the gorgeous textures available this season. Tactile knits and fabrics add depth to all-over grey outfitting.

Remember - winter dressing is all about layers so you can strip down as needed. If you're still building your grey layering confidence, you may like to start with darker grey basics and outfit with lighter shades-think a cosy knit or a chunky scarf.

To make a statement, create interest with a cleverly placed pop of colour. How about a playful beanie or a colourful scarf? It's the perfect way to ease into this new base palette, so you can get comfortable in the grey areas this winter.
