The Key Piece You Should Never Underestimate

An ever-chic grey coat is one of those undercelebrated key pieces in a woman’s fashion armory. It’s one of the monochromatic tones that blend with every single colour in the style palette. No matter how adventurous you want to be, this hue will hold its own against Marni prints and Marques'Almeida frays galore. It’s not like a red coat that cries out for attention, nor is it another black coat that you end up detesting come February (how easily we attach seasonal sentiment–good and bad–to our poor threads).

A Love Is Blind

If you don’t already have an understatedly cool grey cover-up in your wardrobe, then you’re missing this urban staple. Wear it at weekends with classic blue denim, to bring out the steely undertones of cool shades, or wear with spring-fresh peaches and pastel tones to bring the new season to the final throws of winter. For weekdays, wear with a backdrop of classic black to really mean business.
