BEIGE BEST COMES IN
Since beige is such a cool color, it is mainly adopted for making of outer wear. Most designers will want the color to stand out; I mean, to make the bold statement in the whole look. Get beige coats or blazers or even sweaters and layer them over your whole ensemble for a bold look in beige.
As well, beige pants are also loved too much. They can easily transition from casual wear to the office depending on the design. For instance: beige palazzo pants will work too well for the office while pencil pants in beige will be perfect for street wear.
Neutral colored accessories will always be the best option for accessories. Why? Because the can easily pair with any other color in your outfit. Think of a leather handbag in beige? Or a beige pair of gloves and scarfs? Or even a mavin or hat? Every lady should be opting for beige for their accessories especially if black and white are too much in their closet.
HOW TO WEAR BEIGE
It can be so tough to wear the color beige depending on your skin color but if worn the right way, it will look absolutely chic and classic!
1. Mix shades within the same color family
The easiest yet classy way to wear beige is pair it with colors in the same family. For example: a beige and cream ensemble or a beige and camel pair will be just fine. This creates a cool, laid-back finish that will be perfect for the lover of cool shades.
As well, with beige being such a vital asset in any superwoman’s wardrobe, pairing it this way will attract more attention and emphasize on the expressive facial features, skin tone as well as the hair.
Eventually, this creates the perfect monochromatic look especially if you are aiming for a demure and classy finish. Also,monochromatic beige creates the perfect nude look. A beige suit is the best addition to anyone’s wardrobe.
2. Mix rich textures of beige
Cool colors stand out in polished fabrics. Talk about faux leather, talk about heavy cotton, talk about velvet, talk about chiffon, talk about knits…well, the list is endless providing you with a varied selection when it comes to picking out the color.
For that matter, learn to pair different fabrics of beige especially when going for a monochrome or cool look.
3. Neutral pairs and nudes will always work best!
Everyone has being going crazy for nude color palettes no doubt. Why? Nudes are very feminine as well as delicate thus providing a soft yet elegant touch to any look.
As well, neutrals will always be the best pick when caught up in a style rut. I mean, just get white or black and pair with your beige to look minimal and laid-back. At least that’s what I did!
Always learn to keep your accessories in the same color family for a clean and relaxed finish. Beige is one color that will not go without accessories thus it is important to wear accessories to liven up the color. As well, beige makes the face look pale. Therefore, if you choose a stylish look in shades of beige, you have to also create a makeup focusing on cheekbones and eyes.
