The Silver and Gray Fashion Fox!

Silver and gray, although subdued, sensitive colors, create explosion and combustion when together on the style scene. Silver and gray clothing can come across as elegant and alluring, even though the colors alone can sometimes appear drab and dull.

Awaken your senses and your great sense of fashion foxiness dressed in the glorious colors of silver and gray.

The color gray is an intermediate color between black and white, a neutral or achromatic color, meaning literally a color “without color.” Silver, a chemical element that has long been valued as a precious metal, as a clothing color, emits vibrations of sparkling richness and royalty.



Gray or Grey Fun Fact: The spelling of the color gray depends on your roots of origin. Gray is used primarily in the United States, and other areas that use US English. Grey is used in Great Britain and areas that use UK English. Proper nouns, such as last names, are generally spelled Grey and of course, grey with an “e” in the word greyhound. Woof!

Make your way down the runway in splendid colors of silver and gray!



Silver Fun Fact: Most silver is produced as a byproduct of copper, gold, lead and zinc refining. Silver jewelry is both beautiful and revered. Silver itself appears rich, dainty and elegant.


Ok, I have to place this last silver jewelry picture in here, as a silver jewelry exclamation mark! I couldn’t resist!


The color silver has a feminine energy, and it is related to the moon and the ebb and flow of the tides. Silver is fluid, sensitive and mysterious.

Much like your clothing, the color silver and the type of garments selected can be used to display your moods, your personality and of course, your fabulous fashion sense!

The color gray on its own is an unemotional color. Gray is detached, neutral, impartial and indecisive. However, when worn in splendid style, the color gray can wash a sad or a depressed mood completely away.

Be the silver and gray fashion fox that lurks inside of you, itching to run free!


Gray Fun Fact: Some people are indifferent to the color gray, as it relates to the corporate worker in the gray suit – conservative, reliable, formal and independent, and maybe, gasp, boring!

I don’t agree with gray being a boring, dull color for clothes. I, with my fair skin and blonde hair, adore wearing grays, silvers and black tones. However, if you do dress in gray and feel that you need to add some zig and some zag to punch your outfit up to the tenth degree, why not add these haughty, hot high heels, and these luscious shades of lipsticks!



Like I’ve stated many times, fashion should be fun! Fashion is creative, artistic and a great way to display snippets of the unique person that you are. Fashion is truly an art!

Dress smart in the art of fashion, and use silvers and grays to ignite your passion!



When it comes to handbags, and it is near impossible when discussing outfits to emit handbags, a sliver or gray bag not only is a must, but generally matches most anything that you are wearing. I have a metallic silver purse that I simply adore! I don’t carry the handbag everyday, but when I want a purse that shimmers and shines and radiates “divine” I carry my purse of magnetic, silver sunshine!
