Greige is the word…

4 Nov

Have you gone greige yet?

Chanel Spring / Summer 2010.

No, I didn’t just make up a word. Greige is in fact the whole new colour taking the fashion and beauty industry by storm this season. The term greige mixes the colours grey and beige for a chic neutral tone that has been seen everyone this season, from handbags to nail polish.

The recent nude trend has been overhauled and replaced with the greige phenomenon. First seen at the Marc Jacobs Autumn / Winter 2010 Runway show on the models fingernails, the trend for greige coloured nails has spread like a wild fire and has been seen on almost every fashion IT girl.

Lily Allen was spotted wearing the trend at the Chanel fashion show and R & B singer Rhianna soon followed by wearing greige polish at one of her concerts last month.

The look goes perfectly with this season’s taupe eyeshadow trend and will look fabulously chic when worn with the latest camel coat or military inspired outfits.
