Are you a summer person? I’m really not. I concede that sunshine feels amazing on your skin, and long, warm evenings with friends and chilled wine are pure magic. But I spend most of the season living in fear of the inevitable and seemingly neverending heat waves, struggling to dress comfortably and avoid sunburn. And the best days are the unseasonally rainy ones, bringing the temperature back down to bearable and inviting you to cozy up with hot chocolate instead of watermelon for a change.
That’s the comfort factor that grey brings – a release from too much stimulation; a coziness. As beautifully described in this long read on grey’s significance in art and fashion.
