Move over Barbie pink, because there’s a new sheriff in town, and it goes by the name of grey. Yes, you heard it right; this unassuming shade is stepping into the spotlight and giving us all a lesson in fashion sophistication. But before you scoff at the idea of grey outfits, hear us out. Grey is having its moment in the sun, and we’re here to tell you why you should embrace the ‘quiet-luxury’ adjacent ‘groutfit’ trend—just like several fashion-forward celebrities have—ranging from Zendaya to Jennifer Lawrence as well as Alia Bhatt and Ishan Khatter, closer to home.
The shade grey may seem subdued and discreet, but when styled right, it can pack a serious sartorial punch. Think back to the days of ‘80s power suiting and pandemic sweatpants; now, imagine their stylish lovechild, and you’ve got the essence of grey fashion. It’s formal, it’s chic and it’s ready to slay at any occasion.
Now, let’s talk celebrity inspiration. Zendaya, miss fashion extraordinaire, was recently spotted in Rome in a grey minidress that oozed practicality and understated edge. A Louis Vuitton pumpkin tote, chunky loafers and a nonchalant bun completed the look, making it a must-have for anyone looking to effortlessly exude style.
But Zendaya isn’t alone in embracing the power of grey. Jennifer Lawrence showed us that grey can be avant-garde and architectural, as she donned an impeccable matching set by The Row. It’s the kind of outfit that demands attention with its asymmetrical draping and perfectly placed hems.
And it’s not just Hollywood’s A-listers getting in on the grey action. Closer to home, Bollywood stars like Alia Bhatt, Ishan Khatter, and Ayushmann Khurrana have been spotted rocking grey power suits and co-ord sets. These celebrities are showing us that this muted shade can be versatile, elegant and oh-so-cool.
