I hate beige as the colour is so dull and boring. it is a colour that ages me especially when I am turning fifty. But whilst in Venice, I noticed fifty ways of wearing beige at any age or in fact at fifty. It is a fabulous colour between seasons such as Spring to summer.

One of my favourite brands for wool beige coats is Max Mara. Their designs are not boring and very tailored. Like what Megan Markle in New York wore.

Boring beige can look fabulous like below even if you have just had a new baby and trying to cover up tummy bulge.

Beige Boots

Cowboy boots are ever so popular in this colour too. Team them with denim and a deep frill dress or top and it’s a fifty style winner at any age.

Beige Trench Coat

Trench coats are so a staple must-have. I am seeing women teaming them with Dr Martins and it is the vintage colour beige that is a timeless investment.

I love how she is trending chunk sole Dr Martins. With a black mask. You can wear beige with a floral bag and a green floral dress. A very easy way to incorporate floral into my spring wardrobe.

I am in Venice so the weather can change a massive 10 degrees. So I have opted for the following. My base beige is a denim skirt. It actually has two base colour beige at the front and blue. Love this as I know my added colours are as follows. A blue vintage Hermes silk scarf. It is held together with a gold plated 1980’s Yves Saint Laurent scarf holder. Not common to find but I would recommend you invest in pieces like this.

And when you gain weight accessories still fit. That is the beauty of investing in handbags, brooches let alone shoes.
