More subtle than black, and available in a variety of shades, grey is the perfect colour for dresses, allowing the wearer to ramp up the look or tone it down according to their chosen accessories.
According to Live About, accessories are a vital part of creating any outfit. You can easily ring the changes simply by altering your jewellery, shoes, handbag and make-up, making one outfit look completely different every single time it’s worn.
So with that in mind, here are top accessory suggestions for adding extra value to your grey dress.
Black and grey always look great together, and choosing black shoes, belt and bag will give your outfit a classy and sophisticated edge that can take you from office to dinner with the minimum of fuss.
Shades of green work seamlessly with grey. Bright neon greens give standout appeal, while muted shades give a more demure feeling to your look. You can also turn this style on its head by swopping the colours around – why not pair a green maxi dress with grey accessories?

Everyone takes notice of red accessories. Red is the colour of danger and is reputed to quicken our heart rate, so set pulses racing with a red scarf, red shoes and a red belt and discover the power of wearing a standout outfit that turns heads.
Grey and silver is a match made in heaven. Silver sequins and jewellery will jazz up even the plainest of grey dresses, giving you an edge but without requiring you to go crazy on the dance floor to draw admiring glances. Keep it cool and elegant with minimal accessories for a pared-down look.
Because grey is such a neutral colour, it really allows your accessories to take centre stage. Gold can be shimmery and lustrous, catching the light and adding a touch of sparkle to your outfit.
Yellow can set off grey beautifully, but it’s really important not to overdo it. Keep your shoes and bag in toning shades of grey and silver, and then catch the eye with one stunning statement yellow bag or piece of jewellery
