Autumn/Winter 2014 Trend Outlook: Grey is the New Black

It's August. The sun is out, people are out in their coral playsuits and Havaiana flip flops without a care in the world. Summer has actually held up pretty well in the UK which calls for Venti Starbucks orders and crazed maxidress hauls. That's for most of the public. I say most because the rest of us slightly misunderstood fashion lovers are already taking a look at A/W 2014 catalogues and deciding what the trends are going to be. 

Now, I love sunshine like everybody else even though my body hates to absorb Vitamin D for some reason (I hope Twilight casting agents aren't reading this). It's just something about the rich red, tan and navy hues of winter that get me excited. Especially coats with faux fur collars, I am all about those! Anyway, there is one trend that is set-in-stone for this winter and that is grey, grey, grey. Grey can be dull, boring, lifeless and just bland but it can also be sports luxe, monochrome, minimalist or elegant ice queen. Do you see where I'm going with this? Grey is no longer restricted to the staple Nike joggers, we're talking evening dresses, boots and handbags. 

For now, I've compiled a list of some picks I found that I am obsessed with although I'm pretty sure I could have had about 50 items.
