This Is the Colour I'm Most Excited About This Summer

Greige isn't the prettiest of portmanteaus, but it's the colour I'm most excited about this summer. Not quite beige and not quite grey, this is a hue that meets somewhere in the middle. No, it doesn't sound that desirable, so I'll see if I can convince you. Imagine, if you will, that this is the sort of colour Olivia Pope would wear. It denotes polish and being a grown-up and not spilling red wine down yourself. It implies that you have your act together; you always remain calm even when you're stressed out. It is the opposite of Mercury in retrograde. Yes, I did get all of that from a colour. 

Right now, we need soothing, chill hues for our wardrobes, so I'm backing greige. I've already spotted quite a few people on Instagram wearing it (because, of course), and brands such as Frankie Shop have already got chic greige-coloured suits ready to buy now. Thankfully, for those of us tightening the purse strings, there are also high-street options. Keep scrolling to see my edit of the chicest greige pieces. I've got it handled.

Style Notes: A greige blazer is perfect for the summer and gives white jeans polish.
