I don't really do smart, so thought I might buy a grey suit, as there seems to be a lot of grey around this autumn and I could always wear it if when I get a job again. however, I'm not sure about footwear or colours to go with it. I was thinking long black boots and bag with possibly something teal/blue? Please can someone advise me? I'm about 2 stone overweight so trying to use the idea of same colour jacket and skirt/trousers to elongate my figure. Any advice and links most welcome. Thanks!

Pink looks nice with grey.

what colour hair do you have?

Gap have lots of things in really, really bright pink at the moment, which I think would look great with grey.

Teal would be good too.

This shirt in Red would look lovely with a grey suit and avoid the suit looking officey

Thanks all - leoness liek the shirt, but have large norks so probably not the best choice. I do have a pink top from per una that would be okay - hadn't thought of pink, but as you all say it would go quite well. thanks.
