Beige Doesn't Have to Be Boring

Let me tell you, there are a gazillion ways to spice up a beige article of clothing!

Beige is not a very exciting colour and can sometimes blend in with your skin colour and cause you to look a bit washed out.  However, if styled correctly, this colour can look ravishing. The easiest way to accomplish this is add a vibrant colour. See red blouse.  If that's not enough pizazz for you, add a dash of animal print and a bold statement necklace!

Although boring, its a good idea to have a few beige items in your work wardrobe. Add a beige blouse to tone down a bold coloured skirt or vise versa.  

As a side note, I purchased this skirt at Winners in their 'Runway' section which was very impressive, I must say! Unfortunately, this was in Vancouver and not the city I live in. I was pleasantly surprised to find the racks packed with higher end brands such as Valentino, Rachel Zoe and Equipment, for more than half the price! Does anyone know if any of the Edmonton stores have this section??
