In the 1990s, there was no more glamorous couple than Johnny Depp and Kate Moss. I’m mentioning this because, this season, one of Kate’s most memorable early red carpet looks, from her time with Depp, is a key style inspiration. The simple grey shift dress was elegant, chic and remains totally timeless, and this Autumn the grey shade that totally made the dress is going to be a new style crush (along with silver shades) when it comes to a little bit of evening glamour.
Grey is most definitely the new black. It has always had a place in the wardrobe as part of a workwear suit. Most of us do own a grey cardigan or jumper – and usually team it with black no doubt. But grey can also be a really slinky and glamorous evening choice. I have added a few gorgeous looks from style icons who have worn silvery shades of grey on the red carpet, and for other evening occasions, and they look just amazing. If you needed any further convincing that grey could work as evening wear, this is definitely it.
Dorothy Perkins has some brilliant pieces in their new in section that are just lovely if you decide to silver and grey gorgeousness to your Autumn wardrobe. Key pick must be the High Neck Silver Maxi dress – Marlene Dietrich 60s cabaret style combined with Rihanna’s 21st century magic.

Do you wear a lot of silver or grey? Will you be adding any pieces for next season?
