Fashion TREND ALERT: Grey Suiting

If there is one trend I encourage everyone to try out this season, it would be the simplicity of grey suiting. This sleek and professional trend can be seen both on the runway as well as in local stores and boutiques, really solidifying the diversification of this trend.


For Her:

Who says suits are only for men?! Women are bringing back the powerful pant suit in classic grey tones. Both Phillip Lim and Tom Ford displayed complete pant suits on women. While Tom Ford kept the suits fitted and feminine, Phillip Lim played up oversized pieces and added femininity with floral patterned accessories, such as a scarf. Max Mara created my favorite take on grey suiting for women playing up the female femininity with a full-length skirt paired with a matching blazer. The silk hijab and black leather gloves, bring a modest yet edgy touch perfect for a crisp fall day.

For Him:

Reflect the gloomy fall sky with sharp grey suiting instantly bringing Chuck Bass’s style to your wardrobe. Whether you rock a full grey suit, as shown in OMAC’s fall collection, or you simply rock grey suit pants, as featured in Fendi’s fall collection, this timeless trend is guaranteed to bring an elevated touch to your everyday look.  For full Chuck Bass vibes, take a peek at Daks fall collection and notice the dapper layering with a sleek turtleneck.

For Inspiration:

Creative Director, Michaela Rae, partnered up with photographer, Ivy Christina to tell the story of a feminist in a man’s world.
