Fashion month saw an unlikely explosion of beige. Here are the best pieces to wear now…
It was unexpected, unlikely and thoroughly refreshing to see beige back on the catwalk for s/s 2019. There were few shows during fashion month that didn’t feature this neutral shade.
Until this explosion of tonal shades, beige had a bad reputation; seen as bland and used only as a foil for bigger and brighter colours, beige was a by-word for dull and unexciting fashion.
This season though, beige has had a renaissance. Worn from head to toe at Acne, Balmain, Fendi, Burberry, Chloe, Chanel, Dior, Emilia Wickstead, Eudon Choi, Loewe, Max Mara, Salvatore Ferragamo… the list goes on. The chicest way to wear this trend is, as the catwalk suggests, in full force, but if that’s a little too much the beauty of beige is you can wear it with anything.
Here are our favourite beige pieces to wear now.
The ultimate palette cleanser, this season’s stone shades are cool, calm and collected. Warm up this shade by mixing it with rich browns and animal prints.
