Leather-Trim Funnel-Collar Coat
Burberry Brit
Sold by: Neiman Marcus

Fit Guide
Oh, Burberry, we just love a good coat from you. This one is a charcoal grey dream. You are not going to beat the quality, and the style is simply timeless, so it makes the investment very worthwhile. The asymmetrical closure has a hidden zip for extra warmth that zips all the way up for a gorgeous high collar (and also folds down effortlessly). It is soft and weighty, and long enough to work with oversized sweaters and blazers, looking beautiful with dress or casual bottoms. Don’t forget your cashmere-lined leather gloves.

How Many Shades of Grey?

We’re not talking about the book trilogy, we’re talking about the unsung hero of our wardrobes. Grey. We’ve always loved grey. And this season, it’s front and center, which couldn’t make us happier. Need a pair of conservative trousers for work? A sleek pair in charcoal works with your black blazers, as well as color. Ready for a cozy weekend, going to brunch and watching movies (or, at least imagining that’s what your weekend would be like)? Throw on your favorite heather grey tee or cashmere sweater with your favorite jeans. And we love a deep sleek grey or gunmetal for a sophisticated alternative to black for an evening out. No matter your hair or skin color, grey works. If you’re wearing it as a top, just make sure it’s the right kind of grey, if you’re hesitant. As a general rule of thumb, just don’t match your skin or hair. So, if you’re fair, a medium to dark grey is your best bet. And, if you are darker or have more of an olive complexion, any shade of grey will work on you, including the lighter ones. Do what’s comfortable for you. But just do it. You will love all the options and versatility that grey has in coordinating with the rest of your wardrobe. Is grey the new black? This week it is.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our favorites for work, after 5, and casual dressing.

Grey is important in accessories, too. Clare V. is known for it’s clean aesthetic and easy functionality, which is apparent in this classic yet modern style. It’s perfect for work or the weekend – it has an inset top zip, so you can close it, an interior zip pocket, and functionally stylish removable crossbody strap. The leather is soft and durable, and the shade of grey can be worn year round.

NYDJ - Jade Stretch Corduroy Skinny Pants
A couple of weeks ago, we talked about the importance of grey jeans this season. And, of course, that applies to grey corduroy jeans, too. These NYDJ skinny jeans are a modern fit - we recommend going down a size – that sucks you in and flatters. If you are looking for a contemporary fit, AG Jeans does a soft, super stretchy version that many of us just live in during the fall/winter months. We love a pair of corduroys with a great plaid shirt on the weekend, or a trim cashmere sweater for a casual workday.

As we always say, Vince is one of our favorite resources – especially wen it comes to knits. There’s not much to say about this easy tee, except that it’s one of those unassuming items that once you have it in your closet, you’ll always be happy you have it. It also comes in an ivory and pale grey combination that is soft and pretty.  Either way, the split hem and slightly longer length in the back is a perfect weekend piece. Tuck it into boyfriend jeans, leave it untucked with skinny jeans or corduroys with boots.

The asymmetrical cowl neck on this Helmut Lang top is so striking. While it comes in black, the charcoal grey in the heathered wool really stands out. It looks great with a black blazer for work or dinner out, too. But we love how great this top looks on its own because it’s so flattering. The gathers on the side camouflage while accentuating the waist and the tank style is cut in just a bit at the shoulder to elongate and slim the arms. This is a classic piece you will reach for in the morning before work, and again on your way out for the night.

When we’re talking about the beauty of grey this season, we have to talk about a yummy turtleneck sweater. This Joie style is one of the absolute best. One of our favorite traits about it is the tunic shape. We see a lot of oversized sweaters this season, but this one is long yet not oversized. It has a bit more tailored approach that really draws us in. Depending on your height, you can absolutely wear this sweater with leggings (from casual knit to dressier leather), and of course, jeans or ponte pants are sure things.

This is such an unexpected piece from Free People – and we mean that in the best possible way. We’ve always been drawn to Free People’s casual style, but this piece has a bit more structure that can work as effortlessly for a day at the office with slim black trousers or a pencil skirt, as it would for a Sunday brunch with skinny jeans. The fabric is what Free People describe as “scuba like”. It is a great wool blend that has a felted quality to it. Pair that with all the stylish details, like slit pockets, zipper cuffs, oversized fit that’s not too long…and we’ve got one great sweater.

This Soft Joie by Joie blazer is the best of both worlds in that it has both the polished look of a blazer and the soft comfort of a sweatshirt, in its jersey fabrication. It looks great with an easy plaid shirt and perfectly broken-in jeans.

The relaxed fit of this soft grey hooded wool cocoon coat from Vince just conveys cozy warmth. The asymmetrical closure has a double snap. The oversized hood is not only fashionable and functional (it won’t flatten your hair), but it looks great with a scarf wrapped around your neck - especially this luxurious pink and grey Gucci - to get just that little pop of color.
