Fall / Winter 2020-2021 Colour Trends: Grays

On the Fall 2020 runways, several brands showcased gray ensembles, highlighting the versatility of this timeless color.

Far from being a simple neutral shade, next autumn-winter gray lends itself to sophisticated, but also sensual and versatile garments and is suitable to create tone-on-tone outfits or to be combined with accessories and garments in other colors from the season.

Refined when combined with pastel colors, gray is perfect to wear with black, navy blue and white.

Must-have shades of gray for autumn-winter 2020/2021

Sleet grey

Pantone Institute defines Sleet as “a timeless gray that is dependable, solid and everlasting. Highlighting our desire for longevity”.

This light shade of gray looks fresh and classic at the same time. Perfect for creating refined looks, the “sleet grey” gives a chic look to anyone who wears it.
In the autumn-winter 2020/2021 collections this shade has been used for extremely feminine and elegant trench coats, coats, dresses and suits.

Asphalt Gray

This declination of gray is perfect for those who love dark gray, almost black.
On the autumn/winter 2020-2021 runways dark gray was used for modern suits: Prada proposes an asphalt gray blazer to wear with a fancy shirt, long skirt and black belt at the waist; Michael Kors presents a youthful and very feminine suit with pleated skirt.

Autumn/Winter fashion is full of dark gray garments, from wool dresses, to overalls, to coats all with one common denominator: “timeless elegance”.

We saw asphalt gray looks at: Altuzarra, Prada, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, Kenzo.
