Flattering grey for everyday
Grey makes an excellent addition to your wardrobe neutrals. Many of the colours this season are deep and muted, think brown, deep burgundy, rust and of course the usual blacks and navies. Grey is a versatile and easy to wear alternative. If you have grey hair, as I do, it can be especially flattering.
Now there is grey and there is grey. Tones of grey can range from bright silver to the deep warmer tones. Make sure that you choose a shade that throws a flattering light onto your face.
The gorgeous light grey tunic sweater I am wearing above is from WinserLondon. The style is very flattering as it is long enough to cover the hips. It has a deep V neckline and the soft flared finish at the sleeve is a nice touch.
Quality clothes that last
WinserLondon is definitely one of my favourite brands. This is because I believe in investing in good quality clothes that will stand the test of time. I started buying from WinserLondon over five years ago when the brand was first created by Kim Winser. The older WinserLondon pieces in my wardrobe still rank among my favourites and I wear them on repeat.
I have teamed my light grey sweater with a pair of WinserLondon Straight leg jeans. They are a more relaxed fit than their original jeans which you can see me wearing here. Both are flattering and comfortable however I find the new straight leg jeans suit my wider hip to waist ratio better.
If the weather turns chilly you can add a hat and a pea coat. Again one of my wardrobe staples. It is by Gerard Darel, I bought it in France a few years ago. Similar by Whistles at JohnLewis & Partners or Nordstrom have a few here.
Photos were taken by Laura Hines on Richmond Hill Surrey, near where I live. It was a beautiful afternoon and the background views of the River Thames were stunning.
