50 Shades of Grey isn’t just the biggest thing to hit the best seller’s list, it’s the best thing to happen to travel fashion, too. Find out why grey clothing makes the perfect neutral in your wardrobe!


50 Shades of Grey Clothing



One of my good friends and color analyst Ximena de la Serna assessed me and determined that I am a deep winter season. As it turns out, black clothing is perfect for deep winters like me. This is a double bonus for me. I love wearing black plus it’s a super easy color to wear for travel.

But as Nina Rina recently wrote in Are You Tired of Wearing All Black Outfits for Travel, yes I am bored and you seem to agree. If you feel the same way let me introduce you to my new travel fashion must have: grey clothing. It’s my new favorite color to wear!



Cowl Neck Dress 


Last month I fell in love with several clothing items from Urban Outfitters and found myself with an entirely new color palette of choice. From soft heather to washed and worn and deep almost plum hues, I just can’t get enough of my new favorite neutral.

I’m currently grey obsessed with my All Saints jeans, asymmetrical dress from Urban Outfitters, and aztec printed pashmina.




If you like monochrome colors like me, ultra-pale grey clothing makes the perfect alternative to white when you’re afraid to walk around with dirty or dusty clothing.

It’s also much more heat friendly for hot summer travel than the color black which can absorb heat. Although, I think a soft heather grey it would look equally as lovely in a snowy winter white destination, too.




Not a fan of grey clothes? Another good alternative to black is navy. For now, however, I’ll be sticking to my 50 shades of grey!
