Grey is the new neutral and looks chic on anyone. It’s a colour that is androgynous, urban and very restrained. It goes with any personality type and since it’s so unusual, a great conversation starter too. We suggest going for warm tone greys for warm skintones and cool-toned greys for those of us with lighter skin.
