The color nude has always been a fashion favorite, and is now set to become a worldwide staple to rival the little black dress. Its minimalist look and clean character leaves room for the imagination to grow, making it one of the most versatile color foundations around to create an individualistic look. From deep camel to a light hint of beige, nude can be worn in a wide spectrum of tones that bring to mind nature’s softest influences.
Whether you wear it from head to toe, or broken up with your favorite black statement piece, nude never fails to go a long way, and can be just as statement-making as the season’s most color saturated pieces. To get some tips on styling pieces in this au natural color, follow these tips.
Wearing nude from head to toe: If you are going to go nude all over, wear separates in slightly different textures and complementary tones of nude so as not to look too monochromatic or washed out. Lighter and medium tones of nude together create an interesting color progression that keeps a look fresh and exciting.
Or if you decide to go with a plain fabric, wear a loose silhouette because a tight one will show off too much. Your best option for a nude dress is one which features textured ruffles or an interesting print to give you a fashionable allure.
Break up nude with black or gray: Black and gray are two basic colors that are capable of adding contrast to any outfit, and are especially important when working with a color palate of nudes. For example, you can make a nude colored skirt edgier by pairing it with black tights and a black top, to break up a light wash of color.
Pairing nudes with leopard print: Because leopard print is brown, it complements any nude color with ease. You can show a peek of leopard print amongst a sea of nudes with striking tights, flashy ankle socks, sunglasses, or a lightweight scarf in the exotic and fun print. The unexpected burst of pattern is eye-catching and fashion-forward.
Denim with nudes: Denim is a summer staple, and adds a subtle flash of color to the season’s beloved nude-colored pieces, and it does so without being too outrageously colorful. Just one denim piece is all you need: a pair of high-waisted jeans, distressed denim boyfriend shorts, or a blue denim blouse. Denim and nude can look so amazingly good combined.
Accessories: The colour nude can be very girly and to balance it out, you have to don accessories with a tough edge; a few good choices are gladiator sandals, chunky gold accessories, brown leather belts or silvery textured necklaces. To up the ante on your style, select a bright colored accessory that adds just the right pop of color to your dress.
