The newest TikTok trend taking over our FYP is the concept of a “beige flag.” Not a green flag or a red flag, but that grey area in between. Our beige flag? We like to dress in beige. Neutrals never go out of style! Just look at some of the biggest fashion icons of our time — Kim Kardashian swears by neutral tones (even her home is reportedly all-ivory), Rihanna’s Instagram feed is basically all muted shades and Hailey Bieber is the queen of elevated basics in a classic color palette.

Embrace the quiet luxury trend by rocking coastal-cool neutrals that look luxe. We gathered 21 summer styles that are surprisingly affordable so you can achieve this aesthetic without breaking the bank!

1. This strapless knit top looks like an expensive designer piece! Available in a variety of neutral colors, including beige, white, black and brown — just $21!

2. Coastal cowgirl! This cutout crochet vest is totally on trend this season — just $23!

3. Shoppers say that this slouchy short-sleeve sweater top feels high quality — just $24!

10. My best friend Gaby has impeccable taste and a special knack for finding low-cost items that look high-end.
