Beige Is My Favourite Colour—20 Pieces That Prove It’s in No Way Boring
Not so long ago, beige was considered boring in fashion circles, but let this be a lesson in how things can drastically change on a turn. Now, beige is the colour trend tethered to the minimalistic aesthetic, which is only growing more prevalent on social media and the runways. Take Celine, for example, which continues to play with a muted colour palettes in its S/S 23 collection. Serving as the antidote to bright paint-box colours and the bold designs we see in some designer edits, beige provides a sleek solace for quiet dressers.
Still, that doesn’t mean that beige can’t be impactful. Of late, I’ve seen more and more fashion types wearing the shade top-to-toe, which is somewhat maximalist in its own way. However, unlike the intricacies that come with styling bold pieces with one another, there’s an ease that comes with dressing in neutrals, which is undoubtedly a significant part of their appeal. After all, it’s significantly less daunting to pair shades of beige and brown with one another (the outcome will inevitably look somewhat chic) than it is to throw open your wardrobe doors to be met with a plethora of prints and colours to match up.
You could argue that the best wardrobes are made up of a combination of the two, but should you find yourself lacking in the former, I’ve curated an edit of the best beige clothing to encapsulate the—for lack of a better word—trend. Scroll to see my picks.
