Fried shrimp. A perfectly toasted bagel. A sandy beach. That camel from the Geico commercials. They all teach us that beige is beautiful. And at the Mexico City premiere of Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood, Brad Pitt delivered that same lesson in style.

The actor has had his ups and downs on this particular press tour, but his fashion has always been up—and this outing is no different. You have to love the commitment to color. With that khaki suit, he could have added a white shirt, or a navy shirt, or a black shirt. He could have worn some black penny loafers, or white sneakers, or chocolate brown lace-ups. He could have not worn a hat. But no—Mr. Pitt went Whole Beige with a straw hat, tan suede chukkas, and a polo shirt that teeters on the hinge of Grey Poupon and camel.

"But Ben," you might be saying aloud right now, "how can I, a mere mortal, accomplish such a golden-brown feat in my everyday life?" Fear not, my friend. You don't need a red carpet to deploy the coolest end-of-summer monochrome fit. All-white-everything be damned—a khaki suit is one every one of us should have in our arsenal. Wear it in full to a summer wedding, or separately for a less-severe look. For more-casual occasions, grab an off-white tee, throw on your favorite tan chinos, and add a sneaker that's not-quite-white. 

Looking like a toasted coconut is cool now. It's an approachable, laid-back alternative to white-on-white. The sartorial embodiment of this emoji: ????. And I strongly encourage you give it a shot before the end of September.
