If you’re looking for a hot new color to try out this upcoming fall season, think inside the box and try beige. This ain’t your grandma’s color anymore and it certainly doesn’t have to be boring. Although there are many colors in the rainbow, wearing them can sometimes make you look cheap. Meanwhile beige can make you look classic and like you put effort into your look, even if you secretly didn’t. If you need more convincing on why beige should be incorporated into your everyday style then check out the reasons below.
Feel like a royal
I’m fully aware that Kate Middleton probably doesn’t pick out her own outfits, but whoever does has great style and knows that beige is a staple color that can make anyone look classy and well put together. Fun fact about the royal’s style, they’re only allowed to wear beige or nude-colored nail polish. Now, Meghan Markle has pretty much thrown this rule out the window, but you don’t have to. Sticking to the tradition like Kate does can make you feel as stylish as her, even if you don’t have such a royal budget. Try out wearing beige or nude nail polish today and feel a little bit more like a princess.
Makes Other Colors Pop
That new red blazer you bought looks gorgeous on you, but you have no idea what to wear it with because you’re afraid it’ll clash with everything you own so it never gets to see the light of day, enter beige. Because beige is such a basic color it will make your other pieces pop! Try wearing beige with red, pink, blue or even green and notice how they stand out against the nude color. Wearing beige is a really great way to show off those expensive accent pieces that are oh so colorful.
Not only will beige make your other colour’s pop, but it also already matches everything you own. Black is another great color that does this, but it’s so dark and can make you feel drabby and depressed. Meanwhile, beige is a bright color that matches everything and you can wear anywhere you go. Wear beige pants with a white shirt, or a beige shirt with white pants, the combinations you can make with beige are endless. So next time you’re about to buy something beige and start to wonder if you have anything to wear it with, remember that you can literally wear beige with anything.
People have been wearing beige for years, and although it has a reputation of being bland, it is actually very stylish. Everyone from movie stars at award shows to Rachel Green in the final season of Friends. The color and look is timeless and will always be in style. You wear this color to work and feel professional or out on the town and feel glamorous. Beige is a classic color that will make you feel classy by association.
Try out beige this season if you’re looking to spice up wardrobe without adding a spicy color. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to wear an all beige jumpsuit with a matching bag and coat but mix it in with your regular wardrobe. Try just wearing beige shoes, or carrying a beige tote bag. By adding in these subtle touches of beige you will make your other wardrobe piece pop and that is where the real fun begins. Not to mention wearing beige makes people focus on what’s really important, your killer personality.
