Fall Color Trend to Try: Soybean

Greetings and hello Monday! Cyndi Spivey and I are continuing with our fall fashion series styling color trends of the season, and today we are styling Soybean.

This beige-blonde neutral shade has a way of looking luxurious even at lower price points, and I’m liking the subtle shift from taupe and the other cool neutrals that have been trending the past few seasons.

My favorite way to work this color into my fall wardrobe is with accessories — namely shoes and handbags. I picked up this gorgeous slouchy AllSaints shoulder bag during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I love the supple pebbled leather, the matte silver buckle detail, and the chic, slouchy silhouette.

And these Vince Camuto booties in the tortilla suede pair so well with light wash denim, which is also trending right now.

Here’s the complete look. This sweater sold out, but the jeans are the Mother Insiders, also from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I recommend sizing up in these jeans, and also in the booties.

I also love how this bag in the soybean color complements this cheetah print sweater from Talbots.

It has a some shades of beige and brown, which pick up on the color of the bag.

I paired this sweater with a pair of black ankle skinny pants and flats that are almost the exact same yellow-beige shade as the bag. This outfit is a great option for work or church during this transition season.

I’ll add a black jacket on top when the weather cools down. For this look, I swapped the flats for black suede mules. The loafers would be okay, but I like the way the black mules balance out the dark jacket.

I kept the light bag, though. I think the contrast is nice, and it helps break up the look.

This jacket is a new addition to my wardrobe, and I think it’s going to come in very handy this fall. I should have steamed out those wrinkles on the arm though. Oooops!

But I love the shape of this jacket, and it’s soft and stretchy and comfortable. It’s a nice alternative to leather, which can sometimes be too tough for the look I’m going for.

These pants are by Spanx, and they’re a really nice pair of classic pants to have in your wardrobe. I don’t wear them a ton, but they come in handy from time to time.

They have a nice high waist, and they hold in all the fluff. I also love the slits at the back of the hem.

These pointy toe mules are sleek and minimal, and they’re remarkably comfortable. The price is great too.

I also styled a faux leather jacket in this soybean color earlier this season. Unfortunately, it’s sold out at the moment, but Cyndi is styling a blazer today in this color, so be sure to check that out.

  1. Hi Jo-Lynne!
    Great post today! I love all the options for wearing soybean other than blouses because I cannot wear that color next to my face! 😉
    Question-would you mind sharing the link for your black jacket that you mentioned was a new addition to your wardrobe and also has some stretch?
    Thank you!
    PS-Still praying for Paul’s complete and speedy recovery!

  2. I think the only way I can wear this color is from the waist down. I wish the Vince Camuto shoe wasn’t sold out. I waited too long on it. Can you let us know if it has been restocked?
    I hope you have a good week. I know you will be out of town, so praying for safe travels, and for Paul.

  3. You did great job of adding this color in without too much. Hard color to wear. I’m too fair skinned and don’t care for it by my face. Glad to see you style the spank black pants. I bought them awhile back per your recommendation but haven’t worn them yet. I too think they will come in handy though. 🙂

  4. I like the way you and Cyndi have both styled this color… didn’t know it was actually called soyabean as it’s pretty close to taupe 🤷‍♀️. Safe travels today

  5. Hi Jo-Lynne! I really like this color. I see a lot of people feel like it doesn’t look good on them. I’m wondering what skin types it does work with. Also, I feel like I’ve just been calling this color nude or light beige or tan. Is there something different about it that makes it more ” soybean” vs. nude etc? Thanks!

  6. I bought the Zappos light color Moto jacket when you had styled it. Totally a new look for me. Cannot wait for cooler weather to wear it.
    Hope your week goes well.

  7. I also like the soybean color. After reading why you have the lighter colored handbag with the black shoes, etc., is making me rethink the color handbag I’m carrying tomorrow. Thank you!!

  8. The Vince sweater.. did you size down? It is sold out but I placed my order before it did.
    Wondering if I should have sized down.

  9. I liked the top from Talbot’s that you styled in this post. I’m from Texas. Yesterday it was 102, today it’s going to be in the 80’s with a low in the 60’s. This i our first taste of cooler weather. Thank goodness!

    I laughed at you saying in an earlier post that you had a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. Boy was that me! I’ve done a major “Marie Kondo clean out.” It feels great. Now new fresh looks.

    1. That works, but if you have very light skin, they can make you look nekkid on the bottom at first glance. 🙂 Personally I’m not a huge fan of that. I try not to wear tan or khaki pants in a shade that matches my skin tone.
