When the weather gets cold, one of my favourite colors to wear is grey. There’s just something about the cool, modern, and even cosy feel that grey gives off. Not only does it make an ensemble look ultra-chic in a snap, but it’s also really versatile when it comes to pairing it with other hues.
I believe that sometimes fashion needs a little juxtaposition, something to shake it up, which is why I’m currently loving grey and gold together. The idea of a warm and cool colour side-by-side may not seem too out of the ordinary some, but I personally think this combo will push some people out of their comfort zones. Fortunately, this duo is quite simple to pull off, especially when using grey as the backdrop and gold to jazz it up.
I’ve picked out a few of my faves to demonstrate how great this look can be. Also, note how beautifully the gold warms up the coolness of the grey—soft like a fire on a cold winter’s night. Now take a quick peek below and see if you’re ready to rock this trend, too…


I am loving this gold and grey combo for the office, or for other occasions that call for a sharp outfit. What’s great is that these three pieces look like metallics that belong together without appearing too flashy. Style Motivation’s fashion-forward team knows exactly how to take an outfit from the office to dinner and drinks, just like the outfit I’ve put together above, and offers several more great examples. Because the weather is still chilly, consider pairing this outfit with a nice structured black blazer—and don’t forget your scarf!

Move over little black dress, the little grey dress is just as versatile and chic. Refinery29’s style experts highly recommend at least one day-to-night look in your arsenal, and this one is just right. With the help of some lovely gold accessories like a statement necklace, trendy stackable rings, and a clutch, transforming your look from corporate to cocktail is a breeze.

Lyst’s savvy fashion editors know how important it is to have a comfy top in your winter rotation, which is why I’ve chosen this beautiful and stylish long sleeve sweater. Pair this with a pair of skinnies and some cool wedge trainers, like the gold pair shown above, for a trendy outfit that would look great with layers. Throw a tank under this top, plus your coat, a scarf, and some jewelry for the perfect weekend outfit.

As you can see, this colour combination is not only trending when it comes to interiors, but also in the fashion realm. Grey is definitely one of my favourite winter weather colours, but the splash of sparkly gold really warms up the entire look of an ensemble. After witnessing the beauty that is grey and gold, I hope you’ll be ready to try some of these looks on for size. I have a feeling they will fit very, very well!
