Mixing Colors - Grey & Lilac

I have discovered grey color just a couple of years ago, to be exact, this day when I wore this almost total grey look. All my life I was sure it didn't look good on me, but I see now I just didn't know "the way to cook it". It's neutral color that looks good on everybody, independently of age, body type or style preferences. It combines easily with any other color and it is a great base, that can be transformed to anything, depending on what we add. I consider this combination with lilac, in spite of clearly sportive style of the outfit, very delicate and elegant. What is your opinion?
Descubrí el color gris hace tan solo un par de años, para ser exacta, este mismo día, cuando me puse este practicamente total grey look. Toda mi vida pensaba que no me favorecía este color, ahora entiendo, que simplemente no sabia "cocinarlo". Es un color neutral, que favorece a todo el mundo, independientemente de la edad o tipo de cuerpo. Combina de manera muy fácil con muchos colores, es un fondo excepcional, y dependiendo de lo que le aplicamos, se transforma en algo muy creativo o a contrario, muy sobrio y elegante. La combinación con lila me parece muy tierna y sofisticada, a pesar de que el estilismo es muy casual e incluso deportivo. Que opináis?
Я открыла для себя серый цвет всего лишь пaру лет назад, а если быть совсем точной, то вот с этого дня, когда я попробовала этот total grey look. Всю жизнь я считала, что он мне не идет, а как оказалось, я просто "не умела его готовить". На самом деле, oн идет почти всем, невзирая на возраст, фигуру и тип внешности. Более того, он отлично сочетается с большинством других цветов. Серый цвет – это отличный фон, a от того, что вы на него нанесете, зависит весь облик. Сочетание с сиреневым мне кажется очень нежным, и даже несмотря на явно спортивный уклон, комплект выглядит изысканно. Что думаете вы по этому поводу?
