Beige is usually not a go-to colour for designers and fashionistas, but this year, brands like Burberry, Christian Dior, Balmain and Loewe showcased their work using the beige trend for their 2019 spring collections. These collections also showcased monochromatic looks in variations of beige, such as tan, camel, flax and cream. If you want to experiment with this colour this year, check out these four different ways to wear this hue.

Ways to rock the beige trend
Here are some street style inspirations that will make you consider adding beige to your wardrobe.
In order to achieve this clean smart-casual look, add a plain colour like white to your beige outfit and pair that with ankle boots.
Adding a belt and a small bag gives some edge to the whole outfit.
Pop of colour:
Whether your beige item is leather or any other material, adding a pop of colour will still give emphasis to your beige item. Red is a good colour to add, as it makes the whole outfit look more vibrant and elegant at that the same time.
Wearing shorts or a skirt gives a more casual look to an outfit. Add a long blazer and a neutral coloured heel, to give this outfit an elegant touch.
