The beauty of beige is being rediscovered this year.
Beige has been ruling the ramp walks all of 2019. Having been declared the "IT" color of this year, we have seen it on trenches, sailor pants, shirts, wide leg trousers, sun dresses, you name it.
It is not as though this classic neutral with universal appeal had ever disappeared. Beige has long been the go-to neutral for the uber sophisticated fashionista not quite at ease with the stark monotony of black, or the pristine simplicity of white.
In fact as far as accessories go, beige has been the perpetual choice to balance the brash vibrance of intense jewel hues like purple, orange, scarlet and magenta.
And who can 'do' Beige better than Woody Allen? You certainly cannot remember a Woody Allen film which did not clothe its cast in the shades of creamy beige, earthy browns and forest greens - somehow he has always managed to preserve the 1970's aesthetic of the ecologically and environmentally conscious commune dwellers dealing with their own intellectual and existential predicament.
If anything, his preference for the beige clothed characters has strayed well past the 2000's into his film making, creating a 'Woodyland' where beige still rules the roost.
Remember Rachel Mac-Adams in that teasing Beige shirt dress in Midnight in Paris ? or Cate Blanchett's all beige Hermes bag, Chanel jacket and beige top and pencil skirt from Blue Jasmine.
Ah! Those iconic looks from his well loved films. What wouldn't you give to recreate those this year when Beige has finally exploded everywhere, painting the wardrobes of the world with its muted elegance ?
But then you are also too classy to ape a western attire just to match a season trend.
Alrighty Aphrodite !!
Here is an even better idea, why copy when you can create ?
Yes ! Create a classic, sophisticated all beige look for yourself with rich Indian ethnic fabrics and silhouettes. What is more is that beige is the perfect color for all seasons; spring, summer or winter and Indian ethnic wear offers you more choice of materials, fabrics, shades, cuts, silhouettes, embellishments and workmanship than you can keep up with.
