Looking at this fall’s hottest trends, it is easy to see that shades of gray are going to be popular. With even designers like Marc Jacobs turning to this sophisticated neutral, it’s clearly a big trend, as many of these must-have pieces from Shopbop.com show.
But first, boot cut jeans are a wardrobe staple for everyone from college students to executives to grandmothers, and that’s because they have a flattering shape and go with almost everything. The Hudson Signature Boot Cut Jeans have timeless 5-pocket styling and button flap pockets on the back. Made with 98% cotton and 2% elastane, they will hug your figure flawlessly.
The bomber jacket is back for another season, and why not? It’s sexy, edgy, and 80s-in-a-good-way. The Plastic Island Cropped Faux Leather Moto Jacket has an asymmetrical zipper, with zip pockets, attached belt, snap-tab epaulets, and a removable faux-fur vest overlay. Over jeans and heels, or with a bright mini dress, this jacket goes everywhere.
If you want a sweet gray skirt that you can wear with any bright color of the rainbow, try this Yama Bis Skirt by Diane Von Furstenberg. It has pleats, a rounded hem, and slanted hip pockets. At 19 inches long it hits below mid-thigh on most people.
The oversized dress / tunic is a hot look this year, and we’re seeing several of them in this season’s popular gray. The Atlantis Long-sleeved Draped Tunic features gathering at the front, long dolman sleeves, and rounded hem. Perfect as a minidress, or paired with leggings.
Finally, if you’re not comfortable wearing gray next to your face (though it works with a wide range of skin tones), but want some trendy gray in your wardrobe, you’ll love the L.A.M.B. Poppy Suede Wedge Boots. With seam detail at the shaft and ankle, there is a hidden inside half-zipper and hidden platform with 4.5 inch stacked wedge heel. They’re available in black, too, if you find yourself too smitten with this lovely style to settle for one pair.
