I love color. I’m not a beige kind of girl- Christina Aguilera
Beige is the color of indecision- Paula Scher
I came across the above quotes while doing some research around the color beige for this post. The objective was to delve a little deeper into the psychology behind the color, but I happened to stumble upon these quotes which forced me to sit down and introspect.
And while I love color too, I think I’m more of a ‘beige kind of girl’. I like simpler things in life. I may be old school too at times. But the focus is always on un-complicating (if that is even a word) things, as much as I can.
Every color comes with a characteristic personality with it. Reds are mostly associated with seduction, pinks with innocent girly charm, greens with peace and blues with calm. But beige is neutral and calm, somewhere between the earthy brown and pristine whites. Like the best of both worlds. Most people associate beige with being boring and dull, for lack of life. But I beg to differ. The color goes well with just about everything, be it in fashion or decor or art. It also induces a sense of stillness and calm. A beige lover is also said to be decisive in his/ her actions, and is known to be practical, reliable and loyal all at the same time.
Beige in fashion is a very versatile color. It looks stunning on it’s own, and goes well with almost any color that you pair it with. An all seasons, all occassions kinda color!
This chikan jumpsuit with wooden buttons, pearl detailing on the neckline and side flaps waist-down makes for the perfect outfit for a sunday brunch with the girls!
For an evening date or event, pair a beige a-line dress with high heels, put on some red lipstick, and you’re ready to go! How cute are the tie-up shoulder straps?!
I recently got the chance to go through the summer collection of designer Sakshi K Relan, and I loved the omnipresence of beiges and whites in her collection. Sakshi Relan, an MBA turned designer, chose to follow her passion of designing and creating garments with a twist. With a knack to create high fashion in a chic avatar, she marries Haute Couture, rich fabrics with vivacious cuts and drapes, in a fun, edgy and one-of-a-kind manner. Her outfits exude a global sensibility that enhances their appeal and have a dramatic appeal. Her collection has an interesting mix of western and indo western clothes.
