This season’s fashion trends, so far, have showed us that the world is not just black and white. Style enthusiasts can discover all the gray colors that exist in between by viewing the designs of this year’s latest fashion. The color has quickly become a target, as fall’s “it” color, appearing in designer collections all across the runways. Balenciaga, Valentino, Hermès and Bvlgari are a couple high-end brands that have been debuting gray shades throughout their ensembles, especially during NYC Fashion Week. Ladies and gentlemen can incorporate just about every gray hue there is – blues, tans, greens, pinks and purples – into their outfit.
As it is said, “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,” which means the color of gray is only as bleak as you make it. How you opt to wear gray in your outfit can transform its typical connotation of being a bland color into an attractive tone. As you style up cashmere, wool and leather throughout the cool weather months, accessorize with striking gray luxury jewelry and watches to complete your look. If you’re still not too excited about integrating gray into your wardrobe, consider embracing it with other colorful, corresponding tones. Like a gloomy cloud that delivers rain to blooming flowers, its manifestation in upscale fashion can enhance the vibe you want to express.
We’ve turned to Bvlgari as one of our main influencers for styling with gray tones, using high-end accessories. Here we feature some of their models from our selection that make ideal accents for creating a classy, sophisticated presence.
The extreme contrast of black against white and gray in the design of the Platinum Limited Edition AC 38P by Bvlgari for $11,995 provides a sleek, masculine look for the polished gentleman. This timepiece is one of only 99 in existence worldwide, featuring a silver dial, platinum case, black bezel and black rubber bracelet. Three chronograph subdials are displayed, along with the indication of the date, hours, minutes and seconds.
Stainless steel and ceramic elements produce a light dove gray tone to express a mellow, exotic vibe in the Serpenti Spiga One Twirl Wristwatch by Bvlgari for $4,410. A jewelry bracelet and luxury timepiece mixed into one, the design is exquisitely one-of-a-kind. The white dial indicates the hours and minutes, taking the shape of a snake slowly coiling.
The chalcedony gemstone boasts a blue-gray hue within the Tronchetto 18K White Gold Chalcedony Ring by Bvlgari for $950, showcasing a bulky appearance. A gold outline travels around the stone surrounded by thick 18K white gold.
Gray makes an appealing background for incorporating patterns, as demonstrated in the Parentesi 18K White Gold Partial Pave Necklace by Bvlgari for $10,815. A glimmering partial diamond pave travels amongst a unique pattern made of 18K white gold.
For a simple, gray hue that dominates, the B.ZERO1 18K White Gold Hoop Earrings by Bvlgari for $1,925 would pair well. The 18K white gold earrings display a smooth, shiny surface that reflects the light, while letters of the label’s name are imprinted along the sides.
