Fashion is like alphabet soup. A hodgepodge of letters spill into a bowl, they’re swirled around, rubbing elbows with their fellow Ps and Qs. Somewhere during this song and dance, a literate word magically spits out out of the chaos, and is quickly slurped up by the hungry crowd. From left: Missoni Ruffle Knit Scarf, Essie’s new fall polish, Merino Cool, is greige with a hint of lavender, Alice + Olivia Party Dress. Last winter, the fashion set was starved for jeggings. This season, expect to have an appetite for “greige.” The grey/beige hybrid is the newest term to be added to the fashion lexicon, and it’s not just for the Lady Gagas of the world. Neutral to the bone, the color fares well on all skin tones and goes with everything from neons to nudes and ranges from putty to muddy. Whether worn on nails (as shown below at the Marc Jacobs runway show), lids or limbs, greige is the latest fashion grrrrreat!
