We always say “pair this with nude heels” or “let the bold eyes do the talking by wearing a nude lippy”, but nobody ever shows you exactly what “nude” is. Nude, neutral, beige.. whatever you want to call it! It looks equally fabulous on everyone, and can be worn with anything. This shade is an absolute staple in fashion and beauty. If you don’t already own some neutral colored items, you MUST pick some up ASAP! I promise it’s worth it and you’ll end up wearing the color all the time I highly suggest investing in some good quality pieces. Here are some of my favorite nudes!
A nude pump is a MUST for any girl. You see them all over the red carpet, and they are definitely a celeb favorite. This Steve Madden Traisie Blush Patent Pump is about as basic as it gets. Nude heels match it all.. jeans, pretty pink dresses, polka dotted skirts.. you name it! These heels will also make your legs appear longer and leaner, a super bonus for a 5’1″ girl like me!
I get a little bit picky when it comes to handbags. I always want to buy bright colors, but then I end up getting the same old black because it matches everything. Neutral purses like this Ecru Floro Satchel are a new obsession of mine. I’ve always leaned towards black as a universal color, but neutral is so much more soft and feminine. I love the chain detailing on this bag, and crossbodys are the best, hands down!
Neutral is also a huge trend in the beauty world. When wearing a smokey eye or dabbling in crazy colors you have to keep everything else as simple as possible. Nude lips are such a better option than just leaving your lips alone. MAC’s Satin Lipstick in Myth is a fantastic nude lippy, especially if you have lighter skin. I love layering it with a pinky neutral gloss. This lipstick will give you such a glamorous look in no time. You’ll feel very Kim Kardashian!
A nude belt is a staple as far as my accessories go. This Via Spiga Natural Stitch Skinny Belt is the perfect piece to pair with little Spring dresses and such. You can use this to accentuate your waist in any situation. It’s amazing what a simple skinny belt can do to an outfit, and nude makes it even better!
These Natural Sophistication Paperbag Shorts from ThreadSence.com have the same effect as nude pumps. They elongate your legs to a perfection! You’ll be mistaking yourself for a model for sure! Pair these with a bold top and cute colored flats for an awesome Spring outfit. I can’t wait to be able to dig out my favorite shorts again! I just might have to add these to the bunch come April.
Sweet little neutral dresses work for any time of the year. This Coincidence & Chance Revel Dress in Ivory would be so cute right now with a leather jacket and booties. As easy as it could be worn today, it could go right into Spring and Summer as well. When you have a neutral dress like this it is super easy to incorporate color. A neon patent belt or shoes would spice up this lacey number wonderfully!
Are you afraid of going nude, or do you fully embrace the trend? What are some of your favorites ways to run around “in the nude”?! You have to go invest in some neutral pieces.. NOW! Go, go, go! You won’t regret it one bit!
