'Greige' Is the New Black. Here's How to Wear It

The official Pantone shade of 2017 may be a bright yellow-green, but neutrals continue to reign as some of the trendiest colors across all mediums of style.

One in particular that has been cropping up as of late is "greige"—a combination of grey and beige. The result is a unique, cool-toned shade that is neutral enough to wear any time of year but different enough to stand out from the crowd.

Here are the best ways to get some greige in your life, from home to makeup to fashion.

The granny-hair trend was one thing, but this kicks it up a knotch. Is it purple? Is it grey? We're not sure, but we can't stop looking.

The effect of a good greige accent lends itself well to both those of us who love a classic look, and those who enjoy modern twists on an oldie.
