Beige is currently very popular. We’ll show you which colors go well with beige and how you can combine the trend tone correctly. For a long time beige was considered pretty boring and mostly only appeared on the fashion radar when it came to trench coats. But that is definitely over now. Beige is currently one of the absolute favorite colors of fashion professionals. And rightly so. After all, the subtle earth tone is extremely versatile, looks super classy and is perfect on warm spring and summer days. We will therefore show you how to properly combine beige clothes, which colors the tone goes well with and why everyone should have a beige item in their wardrobe.
Who suits the color beige?
The color beige is one of the warm earth tones as well as brown, champagne, taupe or cream and is particularly valued for its natural appearance. Beige looks particularly good on spring and autumn types . Both the spring and autumn types have a warm, slightly olive-yellow skin tone and brown or blonde hair that shimmer golden and thus harmonize perfectly with the earthy color. Cold color types (summer and winter type) can also wear the color beige. So that the complexion doesn’t look pale, you should avoid a very warm beige and prefer beige clothing with a cool, grayish undertone.
Not sure if you are a warm or a cool color type? Then you should do a simple test: first hold gold jewelry and then silver jewelry on your face. If gold jewelry lets your complexion shine, silver jewelry makes it look pale, you belong to the warm color types, i.e. to the spring or autumn type. If silver jewelry harmonizes better with your skin and hair, then you belong to the cold summer or winter type .
Which colors go well with beige?
You don’t really know how to best style your beige sweater and which colors the beige summer shorts go with? Don’t worry: you can’t really go wrong with beige, because there are only a few colors that do not harmonize with the neutral earth tone.
We’ll show you how versatile you can style beige.
Classic beige with black and white
Beige to black or white is always possible. The color combinations are super simple, but anything but boring. Black-beige or white-beige looks look crazyelegantand at the same time super stylish. In summer in particular, a radiant white and the earth tone look elegant and fresh. Our favorite combination on warm days: beige linen shorts with a white shirt with shoulder pads and sneakers.
In winter, for example, you can combine a beige wool sweater with black faux leather pants and create an exciting break in style. For the elegant business look, on the other hand, beige culottes plus a white blouse are suitable . And beige also goes perfectly with white or black for clean Scandi styles. Clean accessories go well with this, for example a filigree chain in gold. Also read: Scandi-Style: This is what makes the look of Scandinavian women so special
Combine beige with bright colors
It becomes a little more conspicuous when you combine beige with bright colors such as pink, orange, blue or red. The strong colors harmonize perfectly with the subtle earth tone and leave the wholeLook look super fresh and youthful immediately. Beige looks particularly great in combination with bright pink. A mix that works particularly well in spring and summer. Also great: beige and blue. Above all, a strong royal blue lets beige really come into its own, but a pastel light blue also goes well.
Tip: A beige with a rather bluish undertone goes well with a cool blue, whereas a beige with a golden, orange undertone goes better with a bright red or orange.
Style beige to pastel
Beige not only goes well with gaudy tones, it also harmonizes wonderfully with soft pastel tones. The combination of beige with a pale mint tone is particularly great. A beige blouse, for example, looks nice with mint-colored trousers, as influencer Negin Mirsalehi shows. Good to know: Generally, beige goes very well with various shades of green – for example a warm olive green – as both colors are natural colors.
Also great: beige in combination with a pale pink. So that the look doesn’t seem too “girlish”, you should go for sporty styling partners such as cool sneakers or a denim jacket and avoid girly accessories.
In trend: beige from head to toe
Beige clothing does not necessarily have to be combined with other colored items. The fashion bloggers are now showing how stylish the complete look in beige can now look. So-called “power suits” in beige are particularly popular, but a beige sweater also goes with trousers or a skirt in beige. The tone-on-tone look is particularly harmonious if you choose different nuances and shades. A very light hoodie in cool beige, for example, looks great with a midi skirt in a slightly darker beige.
So that the look doesn’t look too monotonous or boring, you can also play with different materials, styles and lengths. You can really put your foot down with make-up too. Because beige-colored outfits come into their own with red lips, smokey eyes and bright nails. A strong blush also gives your face structure and creates a nice contrast to the subtle natural tone.
THE trend combination: beige + animal print
Animal prints have been extremely popular again for a long time and are worn up and down by fashion professionals. Wrapped midi skirts with leopard print in brown are particularly trendy . They are now best styled with beige tops. The colors come from one color family anyway and are therefore made for each other.
Of course, you can also style leopard pants with a beige top or a leopard print shirt with a beige bottom. Other (animal) prints also work. It is only important that the pattern is kept in brown or other shades of brown.
