Beige doesn’t have to be a bore! Tips for making the color work

<p>Head-to-toe beige can look perfectly chic in a 1970s kind of way. The key to pulling the full-on tan trend off is the silhouette. Go for a slightly golden version of the color in a loose, easy silhouette like the Chloe look pictured. Let your bag and shoes give the outfit a pop of color.</p>

It’s a color that brings to mind rayon dresses found in thrift stores, and your mom’s old power suits. Increase the youth factor by working in other neutral tones like cream and blush (another key color of the season) the way Stella McCartney did for her Spring/Summer 2010 line. It gives the beige trend a hint of the unexpected. Just be very careful in your choice of colors — pick the wrong palette for your skin tone, and you’ll look washed out.
