With the dawn of the festive season among us, brightly-coloured ensembles seem to be the staple choice each time. However, if you prefer to remain understated and yet fashionable, go for grey, a happy balance between black and white. And it’s chic, too. And if you didn’t know this, grey also symbolises glanced emotions.

Ethnic outfits in grey will help you make an impact on the upcoming festive season. Read on to take a look at how B-town celebs are already embracing this cool hue:

Although grey isn’t extensively used for ethnic wear, it’s flattering and urban. Take cues from actor Sonali Bendre who paired her grey kurta with  dangling earrings, paving the way for looking exquisite in this neutral colour.
