Vietnamese celebrities favor shades of beige

Nude colors, from beige, tan, cream and everything in between have been a mainstay among Vietnamese celebrities.

According to Vn Express, the trend of beige outfits has proved to be a hit since the spring/summer 2019 fashion season. According to many fashion lovers, the neutral tones of beige will never go out of style and would remain a wardrobe staple for seasons to come.

No one anticipated the beige wave! Fashionistas of all levels of fame are opting for a more neutral look, and the monochromatic trend is surprisingly versatile, encompassing a range of hues from sandy and pale to a deeper tan, Star Insider reported.

Unsurprisingly, a neutral wardrobe has often felt unimaginative in the face of the supercharged sequins beloved by everyone from designers and celebrities to some of the most photographed street style stars, so why the return of ‘boring’ beige? And why is it so alluring now?

“I think this is a natural shift from what has become a heavily logo- and streetwear-driven market, as well as well as an homage to Phoebe Philo at ‘Old Celine’,” says Holly Tenser, who heads up womenswear buying at Browns Fashion.

“Women are now looking for a more chic and refined alternative, forcing a move towards a more pared-back and sophisticated aesthetic.” Milan-based influencer Linda Tol echoes this sentiment: “To me, beige is effortless and incredibly chic. Women are really thinking about what they want to invest in and its allure is that it’s not only versatile but timeless, too.”

One thing’s for sure, it’s a hell of a lot easier to get dressed in the morning when faced with a wardrobe comprised of camel and khaki over a rail filled with brocades and beads, (although such fun-loving favourites still have a time and place, so don’t go throwing those away). For those already well versed in the top-to-toe tan arena? Well then the world of beige is your oyster, Harpers Bazaar reported.
