Oh, yes, that book is finally released as a film this weekend. Might be a bit awkward in the cinema with your loved one, what with the subject matter and all, but 50 Shades of Grey is coming, in full technicolour, big screen glory, this weekend. So, we’re using that as a very tenuous link to have a look at 50 Shades of Grey Style.
And by that we don’t mean bondage gear and lingerie. (We’ll explore lingerie tomorrow!). No, we mean 50 Shades of Grey style as in, actual shades of grey. Grey is a much underrated colour. Technically, it’s a shade, not a colour, but you know what we mean.
Grey is a great alternative to black or navy for the office, and although it has a bit of a reputation as being, well, a little bit boring, it really doesn’t have to be. Sharp, tailored grey trousers, with a quirky patterned shirt, in different shades of grey works brilliantly. Crop top, high waisted pencil skirt, and a soft cardigan in grey tones looks smart.

Grey looks great in dresses too – plain grey body con or wrap styles, with killer heels in grey shades, or a grey pattern all work brilliantly in grey. Accessorise with silver for evenings.
