Beige Abounds

sAs a trained Image Consultant, my job is to show you how to wear what you have bought in the past and advise on the best colours for the future.

Beige appeared on the catwalks for this season and the shops are full of it.

Beige, stone, taupe; they are all light neutrals and for some of us we will be able to wear them next to our face and look sensational. Others will need the addition of colour.

I’m not suggesting that you throw perfectly good clothes out of your wardrobe. Here’s a quick guide on a few fashion colours you can wear with your beiges:

Lights – you wear this colour beautifully. Keep everything light and delicate by teaming it with dusty pink.

Deeps – you may find this colour drains you so add some depth by way of a forest green scarf or chocolate brown faux fur wrap.

Warms – definitely a good neutral for you but add a medium tone such as olive for maximum impact.

Cools – you are going to need to add contrast to your beiges. Purple is a wonderful colour and will work well.

Clears – just like the other strong palettes, you need something dramatic for balance, so try a scarlet necklace or earrings.

Softs – Enjoy all the beige shades, add a similar tone such as pewter for a very luxe look.
