Every year the Pantone Institute announces the color of the year, which will reign in fashion, interior design and design. The famous institute has named gray and lemon yellow as the color of the year 2021. However, trends and street styles suggest that another color may lead the way this year. Greige is the color that stands out the most in the fashion world. See if it suits you too!
Every season there is a strong hue that is often seen in fashionistas’ outfits. Greige is a subtle, elegant and timeless color which gives autumn and winter outfits a new lease of life. The color is also popular among interior decorators. Who likes this color best and in which combinations will it work best?
Greige reigns supreme among stylings
Greige is a fantastic, well-balanced combination of gray and beige. This mix is perfect for winter outfits, which is why this color is so popular among trend lovers. This warm color is associated with minimalism and simplicity. Woolen sweaters and cardigans in this shade are perfect for this trend. Greige brings the atmosphere of spending time in a small cottage in the mountains during a snowstorm with a cup of warm cocoa in hand, preferably by a fireplace with a fire. Knitted dresses and coats in this color look great. The color perfectly suits casual outfits and interesting accessories. A scarf, gloves or a scarf in greige color can be a beautiful complement to the look
Who was inspired by the greige color?
A delightful styling in the greige color was presented by Alex Fráňova. Despite the fact that her outfit was simple and intended rather for an informal meeting, the blogger received many compliments on her photo. The Reserved brand also started a discussion about the greige color on its social media, publishing a post asking: “Sorry, do you have a moment to talk about the color greige?” Along with that remark, the post included a photo of Alex Fráňová wearing an interesting jacket in the aforementioned color. The Czech blogger has a great sense of style and aesthetics, so her styles are full of inspiration. Celebrities like Katie Holmes and Hailey Bieber are also photographed wearing clothes in the colour grey-beige
Greige in the Trend Colours
Greige also finds its fans in the world of hair colouring and styling. Hair stylists consider blonde to be one of the trend colors this season. Greige is the perfect combination of the trendy cold colors platinum and the silver-grey shades of grey. This type of hair colouring works well for people who like unconventional solutions and experiments. The grey hair colour contrasts beautifully with fair complexions and emphasises their features perfectly. The base color may be either platinum-cold blonde or ice-silver grey
Greige in interior design
Greige is perfect not only as a part of clothing or as a color shade. Many interior designers choose it when arranging modern and minimalist spaces as well as those in glamour style. The combination of grey and beige is a timeless choice that makes the interior elegant and cosy at the same time. Greige works well as a wall color in the living room and in the bedroom, especially when they have good sunlight. Furniture and accessories in this color are also a good choice. Sofas, pillows, lampshades and curtains in greige look beautiful. For people who like contrasts, a fantastic option is to combine gray with bold, juicy colors that will give the interior an original look
