Going grey

Posted by Sally McLaren on

A grey marl t-shirt might not be something that excites you, but why not?! I think a great quality, classic grey marl t is something that doesn't get as much love as it should and I think it needs a shout out and a bit of appreciation.

Grey marl t's are wardrobe essentials in my opinion - equally as much as our classic white or black t-shirts. Our's are ethically made, ultra soft, ultra comfy, ultra flattering, ultra versatile and they wash amazingly!

Despite being traditionally thought of as the original colour of sportswear, grey marl is a shade that deserves to be in your wardrobe, for every and any occasion.

Universally flattering, marls are created by twisting together different coloured yarns. The result is a soft, muted shade that is sure to suit every skin tone and go with everything.


All you need to do is decide whether to keep your outfit tonal and neutral from head to toe, or add a splash of colour - all of which will look amazing with our mid grey or charcoal grey marl's.


Widely thought of as the most casual of casual colour for t-shirts, it still looks great when styled up with a blazer, jeans and boots....


...and equally great with a long line cardigan, jeans and biker boots.

One of grey's greatest partners is denim - it makes the perfect canvas to add all shades of denim, and even better when finished with a bright pop of colour like this yellow belt to bring the whole look to life.

Sleeveless tops might not be on your radar yet, but spring and summer will be here before we know it. How effortless and simple are these 5 looks with our grey marl Peggy & Emma vests, when worn in completely different ways. You don't even have to wait until summer to think about vests, they're also perfect when layered underneath at this time of the year. 


When we do eventually start getting dressed up again, our grey marls work equally well when smartened up. Grey looks great with brights as I've mentioned, but also with muted pastels like this jacket, and then finished off with a leather skirt or trousers for an added edge.

Or, you can keep your look completely classic by tucking your grey marl t-shirt into your favourite pair of trousers.

So, whether you suit a crew neck, v neck or even a low crew neck, we are sure to have a grey marl that will work for you and your wardrobe.
