Ecru, beige and the other off-white are trending this fall in fashion capitals around the world.

Named one of Edited’s top trends to watch for Spring ’19, fashion tastemakers are already adopting a neutral color palette, bridging the gap between their summer and fall wardrobes.

The colors invite a luxurious, bohemian feel with autumnal knits, gold jewelry, patchwork and Western-inspired leather accessories and natural snake print footwear—which looks particularly fresh as cowboy boots.

The light palette also allows designers new opportunities to play with denim. Ecru elevates denim staples like work shirts, front slit jean skirts and kimono jackets, while diversifies the season’s assortment of boiler and flight suits for men and women.

How to get the look

Acne Studios taps into a classic workwear look with its 100 percent cotton Unre denim chore jacket for men. Large front pockets with contrasting tan stitching emphasizes the jacket’s boxy fit.

Rickrack trim and floral embroidery add a touch of sweetness to Lucky Brand’s Tomboy jumpsuit. Pair it with another key trend for fall—the turtle neck—or opt for a ’70s style corduroy Trucker jacket for a nostalgic look.
