How to wear head-to-toe beige
Whether its inspiration is a safari, landed gentry or mother nature herself, beige is everywhere this season. It’s found its way into our shoe designs from flat sandals to sneakers, as it seems set on taking over the fashion world. Whether monochrome or in harmonious shades, these organic tones are cropping up in powerful feminine silhouettes that, the color aside, are anything but neutral. Without further ado, let’s whizz through the wealth of beige shades and embark together on a soothing exercise in style.
A timeless, urban look
Beige and other neutral shades are elegant colors of choice no matter what the occasion. Thanks to their universal quality, they’re firm favorites of some of the world’s biggest fashion houses: first and foremost, we have Chanel with their famous beige slingbacks; next up is Saint Laurent and their quintessential safari jacket; and who could forget the sophisticated and forever fashionable Burberry trench!
Having earned its timeless status, beige has become a staple in every closet and shoe rack, showing up just as naturally in statement pieces like your favorite pair of heeled Mary Jane sandals as in head-to-toe ensembles.
We couldn’t resist going for a mix of beige shades in a chic minimalist look composed of a sleeveless blazer and Bermuda shorts, which are bound to be a key item in your classy summer closet. Slip on a pair of Vanessa Wu mules to complete the look. Combining elegance with a casual edge thanks to the cream tweed effect, the round heeled sandals really pull together this bold and trendy ensemble. Fans of brighter tones will love mixing things up with a pop of color.
An uncomplicated, urban look
Beige isn’t just for the bougie! It’s even made a bold entry into streetwear style, getting picked up in utilitarian pieces at Fendi as well as Acne Studio. Vanessa Wu sneakers are ripping up the rulebook with white fishnet panels adorned with beige suede-effect panels. By mixing and matching textures and neutral tones, they subtly spotlight the foot for a calculated sensuality, offset by a stylish sole. Beige has finally been given the chance to show off its urban side in a look that is self-assured, bold and sexy.
Round out the outfit with a pair of cargo pants, a white t-shirt and a sand-colored bra. We couldn’t resist wearing it on the outside for a layered effect that combines two major spring trends. Altogether, this look is subversive and chic, showcasing a cool and casual femininity.
Let beige attest to your fashion credentials: the trendy authenticity it exudes can’t (and won’t) be overlooked!
