How To Make A Beige Outfit Interesting: Think, Sassy!
One of my favorite ways to brighten a beige or tan top or bottom is to pair it with solid white. White makes anything pop; and with beige, it also creates a softly transitioning column of color that gives a flattering, elongating effect.
These relaxed-fit white jeans and t-shirt also serve as a non-competing, plain backdrop so that the subtle texture of the beige sweater is highlighted.
Of course, from afar, you can’t see that texture. So it’s nice to have a statement bag, which gives additional interest to the outfit. This Louis Vuitton Damier Azur pattern is larger than that of the sweater’s weave, so it stands out, but the pattern’s size and color are also subtle enough that the bag doesn’t compete or overshadow the sweater. That’s one reason why I love the Louis Vuitton Damier line of bags. They go with almost anything.
My favorite part of this outfit is the blingy tortoise earrings. They’re light brown, so they’re in the beige family. But with the large crystals, I think they turn what would otherwise be a nice outfit into something fun and sassy. I love sassy!
