Pret Reporteur: Necessary Shades Of Grey

July 22, 2013 • Magazine, Pret Reporteur


This time of year is always a complicated time to go shopping. The scorching heat entices a craving for flirty sundresses, strappy sandals and other summer staples. However, your more logical side tells you that such purchases can only allow you to enjoy about 10 weeks of wear before the cool fall breezes set in. It’s such a paradoxical time segment. Instead of being fun and creative, shopping trips become a problem-solving equation.

Luckily, prior research through the many presentations of New York Fashion Week has helped us forecast trends for the upcoming new season. One of the biggest themes evident on the catwalk: Grey. Designers like Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler, Oscar de la Renta, and Rag & Bone were displaying every shade between charcoal and ash. With this little tip in mind, you can now shop with confidence knowing that your new purchases won’t become obsolete in a few weeks. To jump-start your transitional wardrobe, here are a few pieces to get you started.

1. BOSS Black Dallasa 8 Suiting Dress, $445

2. Jeffrey Campbell Booties – Everly Cutout, $220

3. Zac Zac Posen Crossbody Bag – Shirley Dome, $150

4. Alexander Wang Pleated Silk-Trim Jogging Pants, $595

5. Alexander McQueen Degrade Skull Silk Scarf, $795
