Beige is a grayish shade of brown. Its name derives from the French and the term mostly refers to clothes created on a woolen fabric left in the natural color.
It is often used to indicate a large number of light shades with neutral tones. However, beige is beige, it is wrong to call it light brown! It isn’t… and it never will be.
After the total purple style, the green look and the total black style specials, we finally give the right attention to a color that always returns in fashion and beyond. Here is our selection:
