WIW : One Grey

Not shoes, but a sweater :)  

I have found the discussions on wearing greys together really interesting and will be playing with tonal mixes in the coming weeks. I am also keen to get more wear of my pewter (greyish tones) boots but that's another story.   But for today I kept it simple.  Also wearing a pair of higher shaft ankle boots which I bought early in our winter - they finish about an inch and a half above the ankle bone.

Worn today to have lunch with a friend and to try on my the new Motto Skirted Leggings which look great and have been put on layby.  Should have them next week :)  Can't wait to show you.

Jacket : Motto Coated Jersey 
Grey Metallic Sweater: Suzanne Grae
Ponte Leggings : Target
Ankle Boots : Serra

Thanks for looking and suggestions for improvement appreciated.

xxx Deborah

    I love it.  My favorite color combination is becoming black, grey, and white.  It looks so sophisticated.

    Thanks Sterling.  I am finding grey is a lovely addition to my wardrobe and like you black, grey and white is fast becoming a fave.

    Beautiful Deb. Very classy. I love the layering going on and the silvery grey suits you so well.

  • Karie replied 8 years ago

    The coolness of the gray really brightens up your outfit, and the color looks good on you.

    Great look! I love that sweater. And I think the little peek of white against the black and grey really makes this outfit. :)

  • Elizabeth P replied 8 years ago

    Once again, masterful layering!

  • dakotacheryl replied 8 years ago

    Perfect combo. Effortless casual chic!

  • Jaime replied 8 years ago

    I think I will copy this when I go to NY with the NAS jacket I have yet to wear below. Thanks for the great inspiration as always!

    Fabulous outfit on you, Deborah. The sweater has a bit of elegance. 

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    One grey looks best to my eye. Killer. 

  • Elle replied 8 years ago

    Great combination!  I love grey, white, and black together. You've done it amazingly well.  While I like both pictures, I actually like the outfit better without the jacket so that you can really see the sweater.

    Striking! Looking forward to your playing with greys and the motto leggings.

  • Sal replied 8 years ago

    As usual you look lovely.

    I slightly prefer the sweater without the jacket, it looks very elegant. With the jacket I think I would prefer just one layer underneath. Just an idea, I think it might be cleaner. However it is very good as is too.

    I do adore both that jacket and the sweater, you do pick up some great pieces at very reasonable stores!!

    I like it both with and without the jacket.

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Lovely as always Deborah! My first thought was "woah so much light!" even though it's still mostly black and gray isn't light light ;) Really looking forward to seeing how you play with tonal mixes featuring more gray.

  • Stephanie replied 8 years ago

    This is beautiful. As others have said - classy, elegant, effortless all come to mind. I prefer this without the jacket for daytime but love the extra edge the jacket gives - perhaps appropriate for a night on the town. 

  • Caro in Oz replied 8 years ago

    Looking good Deborah as Angie would say - Rock On :) I like the way you have the white piece in the photo with the knit - there is less of it showing & it's all at the front of your body. 

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    So elegant -- the white base layer is lovely under the grey and against the black.

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    Oh the jacket! This is quite light and bright, as Aida said. Your hair helps with that too - with darker hair it might feel too goth. Love it.

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    Great look, I must copy this!

  • Kiwichik replied 8 years ago

    I have to admit that I personally have at least 5 grey/silver tops so clearly I'm a thumbs up for this color . This lovely silver color is a great tea seasonal colour.

  • lyn67 replied 8 years ago

    One grey-with a peak of white- and all looks so fresh and fab!!:-)

  • Roxanna replied 8 years ago

    I have to tell you how much i love your WIWs. You have such a dramatic signature style that i love - but you somehow still manage to keep it comfortable! Love this - the drape of the sweater particularly.
