I'm not one to shy away from color. You'll sooner find me wearing a turquoise trench coat, magenta dress, or even a screaming neon orange frock before wearing a neutral. When I think of the color gray, the words “dull” and “gloomy” come to mind. But, when I saw it all over the fall '13 runways — everywhere from Alexander Wang to Proenza Schouler to Oscar de la Renta — it made me think twice about the color I would normally relegate to the "boring" section of my closet.
I wanted to find a few great gray pieces that would complement my already colorful wardrobe, so I headed to T.J.Maxx with an open mind and one mission: make gray look Chic (with a capital C). And, I'd like to think I succeeded. See how I did, ahead!
