Tan. It’s the color of harvested wheat, of dying Bermuda grass, and of the least interesting fall foliage. Visit a paint counter and you’ll see it goes by countless other names, like buff or oatmeal or sand. Clothing retailers describe it as ecru or khaki. Whatever you choose to call it, this light brownish-yellow color has burst onto the fashion scene this fall. No longer relegated to desert camouflage or your coworker’s casual Friday Dockers, classic tan is the new black. Runways from New York to Milan are featuring it on pants, skirts, knits, and even outerwear for fall. Surprised? Don’t be. It still goes with everything. Since beige is all the rage, we scoured Amarillo’s boutiques for examples of this versatile, timeless color.
