However, I hate beige needs a caveat. I really hate phoning it in, wearing clothes that are so bland, they should be a uniform. Beige, brown, black, grey -- everyone's staple neutrals -- serve a purpose in my wardrobe: they let me play safely. The weirder an item of clothing is, the more likely I am to buy it in a neutral. My ankle length beige tutu is the perfect example. Starting in neutral allows me to gear up and go for it on mixing prints and textures.
