It's been hard to deny the appeal of natural colors in recent months, thanks to a flood of designers who refreshed them on spring/summer 2019's catwalks. Burberry led the charge with its traditional trench coats and checked shirt and coordinating camel trousers, but the palette was everywhere from Chanel to Dior, Fendi to Loewe. So, why beige, why now? If fashion is the constant push and pull of action and reaction, then we could call beige a backlash to the 'look at me' showboating that Instagram and the rise of street style have spawned. Maybe in a world of overstimulation, designers were issuing an official invitation to pare things back and start afresh. Whatever the reason, we're all aboard the beige train.

The color beige is so versatile that it should earn the white t-shirt status because it goes with everything. For an evening look, try pairing beige with black wide-leg pants. This pairing is a refreshed take on the classic black/white combination. 

It also seamlessly fits into a monochromatic color palette along with navy and khaki.  white-jeans-for-fall-social





Pair beige with white jeans, for a breezy summer look. This is a combination we love for the warmer months. The creamy color makes the white of the jeans appear crisp and bright. 



A camel coat is one of those items owned by people with capsule wardrobes.

1Look for texture

In French, the word beige originally translated to 'natural wool' so it will come as no surprise that the color looks best when styled in natural fabrics. When choosing pieces, look for texture and grain. Think linen and cotton, as these fabrics tend to have inherent differences within their weave.

Accent with gold  5

It’s not like we are short of reasons to wear our favorite gold jewelry, but beige and gold are a match made in heaven. They both sit within the same color family making it an obvious pairing. No outfit is complete without a touch of jewelry. There are really no hard and fast rules to this, simply adorn yourself with your favorite gold pieces.

Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian. Today, I’m a wedding-planner and my husband directs a famous fashion magazine. I don’t have to tell you that I have a front seat at all of the fashion shows and I’ve developed a good general culture about fashion. Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.
