The idea that white, cream or any other color is off limits after a certain time of year is old fashioned indeed. Antiquated and forever banished by modern fashionistas, the light neutral colors are considered very chic during fall and winter as well as summer and spring. Not really sure how to wear your beige shoes? No worries, take a gander at some ideas for inspiration.
When spring starts to bloom, so should your wardrobe. That's why it's a good idea to have a pair of beige flats or heels in your closet. Let your colors shine on your body and keep your shoes neutral. A long maxi skirt with plenty of movement and beige flats will elongate your frame. Pair it with a blazer or denim jacket for the perfect spring topper.
The height of summer is hot, and the last thing you want to do is wear layers or dark clothing that attracts the rays of the sun. What should you do? Keep those legs bare in a breezy mini dress. Wear a pair of beige platform heels for a night out on the town. Light fabrics that don't cling too closely to your skin are the best for heat. Think breathable cotton jersey knits or woven, structured styles.
Fall is a perfect time for beige. A light, neutral color palette goes perfectly with the changing color of the leaves and all those earth tones. Try a monochromatic look that has a pop of color. White skinny jeans and beige wedges or platform booties work for day and night. A cream-colored blouse or sweater completes the ensemble. If it's chilly, wrap an earth-toned scarf around your neck. Next, pick a cobalt blue or hot pink clutch bag and you're ready to head out the door.
If there's any reason not to wear beige in winter, it's because of the weather, not some arbitrary fashion rule. Mud, snow and rain can wreak havoc on a pair of pristine, beige shoes. Just so, if you have a mind to wear them, go for it. Find some beige boots to pair with tights and dresses or over skinny jeans at any point in the fall and winter. Just try to wear a pair with a heel; the light color could end up making your legs look shorter if they're worn with dark pants.
