In menswear: When it comes to men’s fashion, the neutral beige can be just the right colour for a dress shirt, a jumper or even a jacket. It suits most skin colours and it softens the look. It is a colour that is formal and can be worn at the office, in meetings and conferences.
In women's wear: Women, who are generally more fashion-conscious than men, rarely choose beige as a major colour in their outfits, but it doesn’t mean that it’s not a popular colour. Considered rather conservative and even dull, beige is favored for accessories like scarves, hats and bags. It is also a popular shoes colour. Beige pairs well with yellows, greens, browns and blues. For more vivid colour combinations beige can be combined with pink, orange or hot red.
