We all know that the secret to achieving a versatile and classic wardrobe is through the use of timeless silhouettes and colour schemes. However, the colour beige is often overlooked by parents for their children’s wardrobe.
The simplistic shade can often seem uninspiring and boring, but with just a few small style choices you’re bound to discover what beige has to offer. To counteract this, Chocolate Clothing has put together their guide to wearing beige in a youthful yet timeless way.
A great way to inject beige into your child’s closet in an interesting yet classic way is through the use of a check print. Simple items such as scarves, gloves or even a shirt can be refreshed with a wash of beige check. This is a design classic that never goes out of style. Pair the check with a warm winter coat and plain smart trousers for a fantastic seasonal look. The plain nature of the rest of your child’s outfit will allow the beige checks to be the main focus, resulting in a bold yet timeless aesthetic. For some inspiration, we’ve put together some of our favourite beige check pieces below from the brand Aquascutum.

A coat is the perfect item to have in this subdued colour. The durable and wearable nature of a coat means it needs to be versatile enough to go with a number of different outfits. Beige is nothing if not a versatile colour. Try a trench coat in beige for a classic look. The trench coat silhouette paired with a neutral hue creates a sophisticated look that is sure to turn heads. While a puffer jacket is a great option for those who want a little more warmth in their winter garments.

Fur is the Word
Another great way to inject beige into your child’s closet is through faux fur. The natural sandy beige tones in many forms of fur and faux fur lend themselves beautifully to adding beige to an outfit. Trims, pom-poms, and linings all work fantastically for those looking to add texture in a much more subtle way, whilst a full faux fur coat is a great way to make a statement this winter. To help you on your way why not try a gilet by Bandits or this beautiful Chloe beige hooded coat.
