Subtle greys for warmer days
Grey is an incredibly popular shade in the world of fashion, beauty and interiors. One that has proven the test of time through all the seasons and considered a staple tone that other colours easily pair with. It’s certainly a shade that will never go out of fashion, so here’s our top picks from our favourite grey items…
Soft Suede and Sheepskin
The greys we offer through our clothing, outerwear, footwear and accessories, range from dark charcoals right through to silvers, and for this summer, we’ve focused especially on the lighter tones. First up is our Suede Bomber Jacket, the perfect companion for this time of year when something light is needed to throw on over lightweight jumpers, t-shirts and even dresses. In a classic bomber shape and in THE softest suede, wearing it is just dreamy!
In the same shade of light grey, our Coloured Shortie Boots are a great length to be a firm year-round favourite. Every pair is handmade in our workshop here in Cornwall from the finest British sheepskin, with soft nubuck suede on the outside and a lightweight rubber sole – rugged enough for marching around town or on the beach.
The great British summertime can be a mixed bag of weather, even more so for us here by the coast in Cornwall, where we can get all four seasons in one day! So we never stop producing our favourite styles in our reliable yarns such as the Supersoft Slouch Dress in 100% Geelong lambswool, which can be worn with bare legs in the day or layered up for chilly nights. We love this one in particular as the contrasting tones do wonders for body confidence with the darker shade slimming the lower half of your body.
Along similar lines, our stand out Horizontal Stripe Coatigan is made from felted lambswool and is so soft to the touch. By adding the line of black across the midriff, this style magically pulls in the waist line, giving a great slimming effect. Extremely versatile, this coatigan is perfect for dressing up a relaxed lightweight outfit for work or play.
Moving onto a lighter knit, our Deep V Neck Sweater is a mix of pure cotton and wool, and in a relaxed boxy shape which, layered up with a crisp white shirt underneath, makes for the perfect chic yet cosy look.
If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off on a hot holiday this year or if indeed our sun finally makes an appearance in Britain, be ready with a classic t-shirt dress and get those legs out! Our Organic Cotton Dress is clean-lined, soft and cool in 100% organic cotton. Ideal to throw over your swimwear when on the beach or out exploring the city, or even paired with leggings for those cooler evenings dining out.
So it’s clear to see that grey is a clear winner when it comes to choosing tones to put into each collection here at Celtic & Co. It’s also obvious that grey is a clear winner with our customers too, who snap up styles as soon as we launch a new season.
We’ve only mentioned our summer favourites above, but rest assured this key shade is available in many other designs too, just have a browse through our website and you’ll see. Enjoy!
