Style File: Shades of Gray

The fashionistas over at have highlighted the gray dress as as hot trend for Fall 2009:

If you follow celebrity trends, you will have spotted Cameron Diaz attending the 2009Teen Choice Awards in a fabulous pencil dress by Alexander McQueen. And Rene Zellweger appeared on Good Morning America wearing her designer of choice, Carolina Herrera. It's pretty obvious what these two celebs (and dresses!) have in common.. they're both elegant, sophisticated & gray in color.

This a trend brought on by the return of retro glam - a throwback to those stylish women spotted on Mad Men, a time when pencil skirts & little white gloves were au courant. The modern 2009 version is elegant, sure, but also a little more edgy.
There are plenty of options for plus size fashionistas looking to step out in style! Because gray is such a neutral color, we love the idea of pairing gray dresses with a bold pop of color--say some hot ankle booties with a bright colored tight? We've highlighted a few of our favorite dresses and look options, courtesy of!
