Everyone’s being going crazy for nude colour pallettes lately. The winter whites phenomena is catching on for many good reasons. First off, nudes are very delicate and feminine, adding that soft and ethereal quality to any look. It’s very subtle yet elegant and classy.
Secondly, it is a a new and refreshing option to the expected all black everything look.
It also also looks great on all skin tones when done perfectly. Flesh tone outfits in nudes, beige and pastels have looked good one everyone from Emma Stone to Lupita Nyongo’o. I have been obsessed with pastel colours and it’s tricky to pull them off without looking washed out. So execution counts big time when wearing flesh tone colours and nude on dark skin tones especially.
Here are four outfit ideas if you’re in the mood for some nude!
Go business class by mixing rich textures of lace and wool cashmere. This look is an all round winner. especially if you are aiming for a demure and classy finish. Layer a rich camel coat on this Stella McCartney lace dress paired with a pair of nude Jimmy Choo Anouk pumps. Add a pair of mirrored sunnies for extra sass 🙂
I’d wear this look in a heart beat. Follow the trend and pair a cropped white top with a pair of expertly tailored beige nude trousers. Paired with Kurt Geiger Elliott Metal Stiletto Nude Patent Court heels and add a pop of lip colour for effect.
This can be worn two ways. Either as crop top and pencil skirt or as a faux dress. This £30 Jane Norman animal necklace embellished crop top unbelievably matched this Alexander McQueen jacquard pencil skirt on sale at Harvey Nichols, I couldn’t help but pair them up. I would probably wear this a dress though. But the crop top is trending (thanks to the Kardashians) so I’m sure the majority would sway that way.
This £220 Forever Unique nude jumpsuit is to die for! Match these with a pair of £45 Helsinki heeled sandals from ASOS. A £95 Fuschia Cross body Michael Kors bag and Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Luminous lip colour should do the finishing trick.
If you are into nude and pastels like myself, which look would you wear?
