Beige Is My Favourite Colour—20 Pieces That Prove It’s In No Way Boring

Not so long ago, beige was considered boring in fashion circles, but let this be a lesson in how things can drastically change on a turn. Now, beige is the colour trend tethered to the minimalist aesthetic, which is only growing more prevalent on social media and the runways. Take Celine, for example, which continues to play with a muted colour palette in its spring/summer 2023 collection. Serving as the antidote to bright paintbox colours or the bold designs we see in some designer edits, beige provides a sleek solace for quiet dressers.

Still, that doesn’t mean that beige can’t be impactful. Of late, I’ve seen more and more fashion types wearing the shade top-to-toe, which is somewhat maximalist in its own way. However, unlike the intricacies that come with styling hero pieces with one another, there’s an ease that comes with dressing in neutrals, which is undoubtedly a significant part of its appeal. After all, it’s significantly less daunting to pair shades of beige and brown with one another, knowing the outcome will look somewhat chic, that it is throwing open your wardrobe doors to be met with a plethora of prints and colours to match up.

You could argue that the best wardrobes are made up of a combination of the two, but should you find yourself lacking in the former, I’ve curated an edit of the best beige clothing to encapsulate the, for the lack of a better word, trend. Scroll to see my editor picks.
