Fashion Forward: Gray
If you're debating what to wear this weekend, there is one color you can't live without. For this fall -- experts agree -- gray is the new black. Seven's Diana Diaz shows us what to wear it with in tonight's Fashion Forward.
WSVN -- Outside, nobody likes a gray day.
But on the runways, gray is all the rage.
Audra Cherry: "Gray is definitely fashion forward for fall."
At Ios Boutique in Coconut Grove, you'll find hints of gray in all kinds of clothing.
Whether it's a kimono-style dress or a wool jacket, this is the must-have color for fall.
Just don't wear it from head to toe unless it's satin or silk.
Audra Cherry: "I think that people are wearing gray 'cause it looks edgy, it's soft, it's not as hard as black. You need to wear it with accent colors, so it would be gray with red, gray with green and gray with purple, you know. You mix it up like that."
Or mix it up with different shades of gray.
Move over Crayola.
Whether you pick a mint gray silk top or a charcoal gray short poet jacket, there's a hue for every skin type.
Audra Cherry: "Light gray looks great on blondes and the darker colors look better when you're a little darker."
Go for gray at Shop 603 on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.
This season it's just as popular as black, and easy to mix and match with any color.
Susie Scarincio: "This season you can wear gray with every color, brown, tan, beige, green. I mean it can go either way and it's year round."
Steely grays, slates and charcoals are the most popular shades to chose from.
But if your budget is tight and you can afford just one item, then go for gray denim, especially the popular skinny jean.
Susie Scarincio: "We carry skinny jeans to jackets with silver to stones embellishment. Our denim, our twill, our track suits, everything has some kind of silver or gray embellishment on it or design."
The perfect color for any occasion.
Susie Scarincio: "It goes with everything. It's a season-less color and it's perfect with everything you have in your office, so you don't have to worry about buying that particular piece to match that gray jean that you bought cause I can guarantee you will have something in your closet that will look fabulous."
When it comes to accessories, there are no rules -- you can wear either gold or silver jewelry with gray.
