Whether you’re someone who keeps to black, white and beige, but would like to trial grey into your closet or if you’re a man of colour, grey isn’t as dull as you may think. Here’s a round-up on how to have a grey day and how to work it into your wardrobe for winter.
The dark nights and not-so-bright mornings means that grey needs to be on your radar to brighten up your outfits. With an off-duty feel, try a light dose of grey in the form of joggers, sweatshirts and t-shirts to achieve a stylish yet comfortable look. It’s the minimalist shade that will refresh any outfit for the new season.
Sweat It Out
Oversized sweatshirts give an element of ‘I’m not leaving the couch today’ and also ‘I’m ready to hit the gym’. They’re what you make them.
Made with extra comfy loopback fabric, an oversized fit will see you through autumn and beyond. Adaptable for styling, a grey marl sweater needs to be your investment piece if you want to focus on quality and durability. You’ve got a range of dropped shoulder styles and extreme oversized fits to make each sweater stand out. Team with skinny or slim fit jeans and trainers for out and about, or team with loungewear gear for the ultimate comfort factor.
If you’re after a light layer, grey marl t-shirts are another alternative to work with. Try the dropped shoulder styles, oversized fits and crew neck features. Ideal for layering with jackets and oversized sweatshirts. Check out our layering guide here.
Joggers have steadily edged into mainstream fashion and sweatpants are now considered a staple piece in any man’s wardrobe. Don’t get stuck in a rut on how to style them – no longer reserved for the house, joggers can reinvent your off-duty style when you head outside.
Team with trainers and a sweatshirt to go for a dress down day. Looking to upgrade your outfit? A tracksuit top or knitted jumper can take away the sporty element of your joggers – layering with a t-shirt and slim-fitted coat can also give an smarter impression.
You don’t have to do all the legwork. Look to Mennace’s premium joggers with quality ultra-snug loopback fabric, elasticated waistband, fitted cuffs and relaxed tapered style. Fit to last, joggers will combat whatever the weather throws at you. Whether you’ve reserved your night for Netflix only or need them for a throw-on-and-go alternative to your street style, they’re a solid option.
If there’s a colour that will refresh autumn / winter or even transitional dressing due to its versatility, grey is your answer. Consider it the new black.
