I’ve always wanted to be one of those girls who look impeccably dressed no matter where they are—whether it’s the grocery store at 3 p.m. or the coffee shop at 7 a.m. Instead, I’m that girl who spends 40 minutes to achieve that dewy look and curls my hair so that it looks like I didn’t brush it. I think that the secret to those ladies is that they often know their color palette and they stick to it. Maybe Karl the Fog is influencing me or maybe it’s because I like it’s versatility, but I think grey might be my go-to color this season. Here are my favorite cool grey pieces to wear in this cool, grey city, clockwise from top left.
The Oh Wonderful picks for an all-grey wardrobe:
Rivington Sweater Coat by Madewell: Hurry up, this sweater is selling out fast! This jacket will be a long duster coat on my 5’1 frame, but I’m excited to pair it with my favorite jeans and mini dresses this season.
Cluse ‘La Boheme’ Watch: You can’t ever go wrong with a classic timepiece. Trends come and go, just like the time. Not sure what I was trying to do there.
Vans Pig Suede Court DX sneakers: I need to get lace-up low tops this season and you can bet that I’ll look for a suede pair. These grey ones by Vans will go with anything.
Eugenia Kim Fedora: I’ve been a fan of Eugenia Kim and her toppers for a while and each season she gets better and better. It’s a #goal to own one of her hats—so why not start with a grey fedora?
Sole Society ‘Selena’ Backpack: As the temperatures drop, I’ll probably want to keep my hands warm and cozy in my pockets. A backpack to store all of my essentials will keep me hands-free as I head to work.
Wool Coat by Mango: If it starts to get really cold, I’ll layer on a grey wool coat over one of my favorite moto jackets. It doesn’t hurt to double the warmth, right?
Pat McGrath Metalmorphosis 005 in Silver Metallic: The famed and headband wearing makeup-artist, Pat McGrath has unleashed her fabulous collection at Sephora. I’m crushing on the sliver metallic set, after all, I do have a cool skin tone.
Grey Turtleneck by J. Crew: Jeans, ankle boots and a grey turtleneck have been my outfit of choice as of late. I only expect to add a couple more grey turtlenecks by the end of the year.
‘Taye’ Boots by Sam Edelman: I’m all about versatility when it comes to getting dressed, from my hair to my boots. I like a boot that I can dress up with a shimmery mini dress or dress down with distressed jeans and a tee. These fit the bill perfectly.
