Gray Is The New Black?

 - Feb 17, 2007   Updated: Aug 9 2011
Prepare to see a world of gray as the fashion world adopts 'gray', pushing 'black' and 'white' out of top place as base fashion colours. Experts also predict that this trend towards grey will move fashion away from favouring a casual look to a more conservative, refined, 'neat and tidy' sort of look.

Hand-in-hand with this movement towards shades of gray will be an adoption of more flattering silhouettes including cinched-waists, flared hemlines and pleats.

Implications - For a long time black and white were the essential colors in the fashion world but now gray is beginning to gain to popularity. Gray is a perfect replacement for black and white because it synthesizes the two by mixing them; gray draws the boldness of black and the purity of white.
