On the list for your next shopping trip? A pair of nude heels.
I know, I know. You pass them up almost every time– choosing a brightly colored sandal or a chic black pump instead.
I get it– nude can be weird.
Isn’t it too Grandma-esque, like flesh-colored pantyhose? Is it supposed to match my skin tone exactly? What does nude even go with?
It can; but it doesn’t have to.
Nude pumps lend a lengthening effect to an outfit. My preference is peep toe with a substantial platform (a lá here).
For your fashion consideration:
Nicole’s nude Loubs match her dress and skin perfectly; one doesn’t know where her skin ends and the outfit begins. Like the summer equivalent of all-black during the winter months; cohesive.
Lauren’s nude platforms doubles the lengthening payoff. Combined with a short minidress (also nude!), her legs look 19 miles long. Such a plus for girls with short and/or athletic legs (um, volleyball? I love you, but I’ve got some serious muscle happening in the leg region due to my years on the court).
Victoria is working all the of-the-moment neutrals at once: black, gray, olive and nude. It’s interesting. If you described the outfit to me without showing me a picture, I’d probably wrinkle my nose. Doesn’t sound appealing, but I think it looks quite chic, don’t you? Victoria illustrates that you don’t have to pair nude heels with a nude outfit.
Lucky for us, nude is huge right now. You can find a pair of nude pumps just about anywhere, at almost every price point. Happy shopping!
