B is for beige, but definitely not boring. Labels including Burberry, The Row and Max Mara (the granddaddy of tonal dressing) have created super-sophisticated but also surprisingly cool options from this pale palette for SS19, reminding us why simple is so stylish.
The nuances? Shades of caramel, oatmeal, muted browns and off-white, preferably layered and worn head to toe, as demonstrated by the likes of Milanese fashion blogger Erika Boldrin. You can go with perfect pairings – beige is the best color to buy when it comes to suits right now – or mix your textures: corduroy with a cotton drill trench; a silk cami under wool blazer skirt. When it comes to accessories the options are endless, from snake-print shoes to mock-croc bags and pale tan boots. In short, beige plays very well independently and as part of a team. What’s not to love?
