From classic timeless looks to sleek Olsen-inspired outfits, beige remains one of the only colours in the spectrum to define class and elegance in a sheer instant. Whether a lighter beige or a darker tone in the more yellow-ish family, a beige piece of item makes you look sophisticated without even trying.
Call us boring for continually reaching back to neural tones, but the truth is that there are so many ways to look expensive without actIf thually spending a good fortune on your look. And one of those is dressing in a full monochrome look, or alternatively wearing one piece in beige which will pave the way for the rest of your outfit.
Ranging from a variety of shades, from off-white beige to a more blush and pink tone, and ultimately ending in a more dusty and mustard toned beige, we love to include always at least one item due to its versatility when paired with bolder tones and louder fabrics. What’s more, it is neither a trendy color nor does it go out of style – it fits all shapes and sizes, as well as age demographics. Whether you’re a toddler or a chic lady in her mid 60’s, beige has a way of slipping into your outfit and make you look cool, calm and collected in the split of a second.
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the course of not only shopping for fashion, but also browsing through the glossy pages of magazine editorials and old fashion archives from the early 20’s is that less is always more. And for that reason and a gazillion more – it doesn’t come as a surprise that every designer showcasing their seasonal collections and essentials include beige as a main character for Spring/Summer 2019. No need anymore to save up week after week to be able to afford a fabulous beige coat or knit – that’s a thing of the past. Head to our favorite high-street brands to in-the-moment emerging designers, and you’ll find your treasure no matter where you go.
The key though is to find pieces that look and feel upscale – so when you’re on the hunt for that defining beige piece, let us give you a few things to look out for. To start, an expensive looking cashmere knit at a high street brand is luckily for us now available – so instead of getting 2-3 sweaters in similar tones and all made of a mix of polyester, cotton and wool, opt for the higher priced cashmere style that fits well and will last you a few more months than those made from a blend of materials. The same applies to outerwear – in order to avoid looking a tad on the sloppy side invest in good fabrics that will stand the test of time. Double-check the cut and fit, and if all looks smooth then hit purchase before it sells out. In the meantime though, we hand-picked a few of TWC favorites…
Ahead, you’ll find a plethora of beige pieces we’ll be adding to our shopping carts in the next weeks
