Beige Boots

I had an ‘aha’ moment when I saw the hashtag #beigeisthenewblack on Vogue Paris editor Suzanne Koller’s Instagram feed—I couldn’t agree more. This may be the first of many posts extolling one of my favorite neutrals, consider yourself forewarned…

  • The lower look is especially beautiful and luxurious. The sand/beige/stone palette is gorgeous, and I agree that it is an elegant neutral option and wearable year round. But I can’t imagine any color could replace black. Black will always have it’s place in the closet – I just don’t think a beige cocktail dress could ever rise to the level of a fabulous black one. For me, black patent pumps are a must, and beige patent would be optional.

  • Wow! Those boots in the second photo, I had pair of Sergio Rossi boots very much like that 30 years ago… they were sooo beautiful, just as these ones are.

  • Love these boots. Treat them like an accessory , wear them with a great black skirt or dress

  • I love them. Not instead of black, but a great addition. I just bought a pair of beige boots (way more casual than the photos) and I know I’ll wear them year round.

  • I think beige is very luxurious looking. It does always look more fragile than black though, which is part of its appeal to me. Black will always be the “work horse”, I think.

  • Whenever my husband complains that I wear too much black I immediately gravitate toward the beige section of my closet. Aside from the potential of red wine spillage, it is my favorite–light and elegant.

  • I love beige and tan. My only concern about the boots is keeping them clean in London where it’s normally rainy. Easier to go with the color in knits and bags.

  • I wholeheartedly agree, Preston! The other end of the color spectrum is universally faltering and often more flattering than black.
