Is Gray the New Black for Spring 2010?

25 Feb

Eva Longoria in her shades of gray

Gray is a staple color in most professional wardrobes.  That’s why it’s quite refreshing to hear that gray is an “it” color for Spring 2010.  Finally, a runway trend that we can wear to the office without hesitation.

We are inspired by the way celebrity Eva Longoria Parker has incorporated two different shades of gray into her look (pictured above).  If her outfit were a wee bit roomier and had a bit more sleeve, we might be able to wear it to the office.  (While we want our clothes to be tailored and to fit properly, we do not want them so tight that they  scream “Look at me, I’m hot!”  “Hot” is not corner office appropriate – at all.  You want your boss and colleagues to be floored by your analytical skills, not by your curves.  Save your “hot” looks for nights and weekends.) 

For your viewing pleasure, here are a few items in gray that we’ve been eyeing for our Spring wardrobes.  😉
