From makeup trends to fashion styles, the latte brown shade has officially become the “representative face” of the fall season for fashion enthusiasts.
For today’s fashionistas, the “latte makeup” trend has perhaps flooded every corner of the trend universe, especially on platforms like TikTok. The makeup look, dominated by brown tones – from copper eyeshadow, cinnamon-colored eyeliner, chocolate-toned contouring powder to coffee-hued lip pencils – has stirred up a frenzy on fashion runways like Ferragamo, Hermès, Loewe, Tom Ford, and has been embraced by the fashion-savvy on the streets.
Latte makeup doesn’t instantly draw attention like the vibrant blush of “Strawberry-girl makeup,” nor does it exude the sophistication or coldness of a smoky eye look. Instead, it radiates refinement, gentleness, sophistication, and soulfulness. Moreover, the brown color is not selective about any skin tone; its versatility and applicability rival those of black and white.
Autumn is the season of neutral tones, especially the brown hue. From dry leaves in fields to the evening sunsets, even to the morning coffee, brown appears everywhere during the autumn days. Hence, “brown is the new black,” as brown gradually becomes the dominant color in every fashionista’s wardrobe for the fall season. This trend has given rise to latte outfits. On every street corner during the Fall/Winter fashion weeks, fashion enthusiasts have transformed brown into various looks suitable for parties or office settings.
Autumn is still waiting for the ladies to shine. Here are four ways to become a “fashionable latte” and steal the spotlight during the falling leaves season:
Getting Acquainted with Monochrome Looks
If you think that dressing in a single color or following the monochrome trend is boring and hard to impress, then brown will prove otherwise. In fact, brown is often worn by fashion enthusiasts as a “complementary” color, blending seamlessly with other shades like black, white, gray, beige, and more. However, many fashion enthusiasts have been surprised by the attention-grabbing ability of brown when it becomes the “main character” and the dominant color for an entire look.
While an “all-black” ensemble brings a cool and edgy vibe, and “all-white” creates the beauty of elegance and gentleness, an outfit dyed entirely in brown from head to toe generates a unique fashion spirit. It combines all the nuances – sophisticated, feminine, attractive, and never dull. For this kind of “monochrome” dressing, it’s crucial for ladies to pay attention to material choices. Mixing various materials will make latte outfits in a monochrome style much more deeply impressive. On the contrary, a harmonious brown color palette from the hue to the material will allow ladies to shine brightly without much thought.
Playful Exploration with Different Styles
Elevating latte outfits for fall depends on how you coordinate different clothing styles. If mixing and matching lengths or sizes of clothing no longer excites fashion enthusiasts, don’t hesitate to “switch things up” by combining contrasting clothing styles. A long trench coat paired with a short miniskirt is a highly ideal suggestion. Instead of pairing an oversized blazer with wide-legged trousers, try “playing around” with a fitted bodycon dress or a long, body-hugging skirt. Combining bold accessories, made of either precious stones or brown plastic, with a short bodycon dress will undoubtedly elevate your latte outfit to perfection.
A Cup of Strong Latte
Beyond the beige-brown blend, the latte color palette also offers richer shades to satisfy every fashion enthusiast. While light-toned latte outfits suit those who love a gentle and feminine style, latte outfits with deeper brown tones are a perfect match for a strong and assertive fashion spirit. Dark brown suits, impeccably tailored and paired with a stylish scarf, not only keep you warm but also make you shine everywhere you go. Dark brown, combined with glossy leather or smooth satin, becomes a formidable weapon to conquer the fall fashion scene.
Experimenting with Various Shades
If a monochrome fashion palette isn’t the ideal choice for those who seek to break out of their style comfort zone, then combining different shades of brown might be the answer you’ve been looking for. A light latte-colored knit dress becomes more remarkable when paired with a long, sturdy, golden-brown coat. To add extra interest, complement the ensemble with knee-high coffee-brown leather boots and a chocolate brown handbag. This combination of multiple brown shades creates a captivating ombre effect. Besides playing with different color tones, women should also experiment with various fabric types. For example, a voluminous faux fur coat can add a striking touch to a sheer, coffee-colored chiffon dress.
