Fashion is truly unpredictable, isn't it? Just when we thought that minimalism will be completely overshadowed by the unapologetically loud and colourful aesthetic of maximalism, we're proven wrong. While it's true that bright colours and fancy prints are on the rise, the beauty of elegant styling is still not lost and remains in vogue. We guess opposing trends can actually co-exist! These days, beige is the colour of choice for minimalist dressing. And what's not to love? It's versatile and totally chic. Ahead, some fresh tips on how to wear beige without being boring.
Shades of beige
Beige comes in many shades: cream, nude, tawn and so on. To create depth and make your minimalist ensemble more interesting, play with the different shades of beige. A foolproof way to mix and match beige is to select outerwear that's in a light hue and a bottom piece in a darker colour. Then, wear a top that's in black or white for a clean, visual break.
Remember when we said that contrasting trends can co-exist? Well, here's the evidence. Basic beige can look really good with subtle pops of pastels or even brighter shades. The key is to not overpower the beige. Think of additional colours as the seasoning to your ensemble rather than the main dish. As a rule of thumb, choose only two hues to add. For example, you can wear a bright top and a shoe or bag in another eye-catching shade.
