We need to talk about beige



I’ve had a lot of negative feelings about beige, there is a whole society of people that like wearing it from head to toe. I used to think there is no mystery in the colour, no excitement and no skills required. Leaving black out from my outfit is a stretch but here we are, open to all ideas especially the ones that represent a new fresh season.

Beige shoes are always listed as the cliché wardrobe must-have because they go with everything. I on the other hand would like to think shoes deserve all the attention, which explains why I never felt like I needed a beige pair. But there was something about these strappy sandals that made me realize that banning beige for all this time has made it interesting. You always want what you can’t have.

I've never been a fan of beige colored clothes but maybe one day I'll give it a try! :)

"there was something about these strappy sandals"......You're damn right there is - they are amaaazing. Love that you are able to show them off with the style of the pants!

Everything changes as you get older and learn to appreciate the subtleties that you couldn't fathom when you were younger. Always a good thing.

Beige shoes I can do but more than that I never tried. I love the Cos shirt, it's on my wish list.

Heather Barnes said...

I think just like black it is a classy color!

Bri Wang said...

Great color pairing.
Personally, I don't like the way beige looks against my skin color, but you pull it off well!

Sandra,

This is my first time reading your blog and I love it! You have great style and those pants are amazing. I love the the slit up the front lets you show off your shoes, one of the reasons why I have always loved skinny jeans.

Beige totally scares me for some reason. I know it comes in a million colors but I fear I might look like an oversized, mangled band-aid!

I can be short about beige, it looks horrible on me. Shoes work a little but when I go higher all the color in my skin seems to disappear :( Love the sandals though and great trousers too! xx

Beige shoes marry the leg and foot in to one long leggy look! If you want to show off your legs, the beige shoe is a good idea! Kate Middleton does this all the time and it really works!!

Beige/nude shade is a funny thing. For me, it's all about finding the shade to suits the wearer - some I adore and others make me look like a corpse.
And yes, totally agree about the shoes - they are the fun element, the surprise one, so I don't own any skintone footwear, although admit, I did admire those KurtGeigers the other day, too. x

Nathan Moy said...

Stunning look, love the color way as well. Now I need to find me some trousers with front slits too! #FrontSlit lol Btw, I've just upload my new outfit post featuring MINT on MINT on MINT, so if you're into pastels I urge you to feast your eyes, and do tell me what you think and hope you're wholly PROVOKED! ;)
