Here’s how to nail the minimal color trend.
Perhaps inspired by the changing colors of nature, many of us find ourselves gravitating towards neutral shades rather than colorful palettes during the fall and winter seasons. Loved for its versatility and minimal look, the beige color in particular has been dominating our Instagram feeds. For those seeking cozy style inspiration, we’ve put together a quick guide to wearing the universally-loved color. From a casual weekend look to a date night-ready ensemble, continue reading for five beige outfit ideas featuring items by Acne Studios, Nanushka, Moncler and more.

For the Weekend
Weekends are all about comfort. To achieve that, it’s best if your shoes aren’t heels, and your pants come with an elastic waistband. Here, we’re pairing Acne Studios’ beige turtleneck sweater with Dries Van Noten’s checkered pants to keep things stylish and casual. Trousers with a wide-leg fit go well with chunky footwear, like Rombaut’s Boccaccio II sneaker mules that you can easily slide into. To complete the look, we’re accessorizing with a small crossbody bag and bold chain necklace.
Whether you’re attending an important meeting or just feeling like dressing up, a blazer like KIMHÉKIM’s beige design will tie everything together. To maintain a neutral and minimal color palette, go for a body-hugging cream tank top and a pair of matching trousers. To elevate the look, put on some comfortably-heeled mules like Wandler’s and carry a top handle bag accentuated with golden hardware. This corporate-chic ensemble will also work for at-home Zoom calls or virtual interviews.
As we continue to spend most of our time indoors, loungewear has become a daily wardrobe essential for many. However, just because you’re staying home, that doesn’t mean you can’t coordinate your outfits. These cozy Nanushka ribbed knit trousers will look great with a hoodie or sweatshirt, like this one from Daily Paper. Stay warm by throwing on some socks. If you’re heading out for a quick grocery run, round off your outfit with some casual shoes and headwear, like Nike’s Offline mules and Acne Studios’ beige beanie.
Although it may not be realistic in many parts of the world right now, a lot of us have been missing dressing up more than ever. For those looking to go out for a socially-distanced date night, we’ve styled RAT & BOA’s white velvet dress with a boxy wool blazer. You can play around with all kinds of accessories for this outfit, like this dressy necklace from Timeless Pearly. Finish off the look with some ankle boots, like Brother Vellies’ Brandy silhouette, and a statement purse like Coperni’s Swipe bag.
As we slowly reach the end of the year, it’s time for us to bring out all the warm pieces from our wardrobes. For peak coziness, we’ve selected Moncler’s fuzzy faux fur coat to wear on top of a casual outfit featuring Plan C’s knit sweater and a pair of jeans. For added comfort, consider wearing ankle boots like this chunky design from Eytys and a corduroy bucket hat to stay warm.
