Is Grey the New Black Tux?
Since the beginning of formal wear, the black tux has been the standard go-to look for weddings and formalwear, but no longer. Like everything else, millennials have brought their own twist and new meaning of modernism to fashion. Lately, fashion forward celebrities have graced the red carpet with their own interpretation of the standard tux and are opting for various shades of grey. This new color looks incredibly cool and gives an edgy minimalistic touch to an otherwise predictable standard.
Grey and black complement each other. Grey is actually NOT a color, but is instead a shade. When you take black pigment and add white to it you will get every shade of grey from charcoal to light grey. So, grey is actually black and white mixed together to create shades of grey. This is why grey and black look great when combined together.
