Going Nude this Summer

Nude tones are to be found everywhere this season. From light pinks and beiges to deep browns everyone seems to be wearing skin over their skin. I truly like this trend because of the bare illusion it causes, but in excess it can make the wearer look washed out and bland.

Exhibit A:

This Lanvin dress makes the model appear like a dried up mummy raised from the dead! Well maybe not that bad, but life-less indeed.

For those readers who are extremely fair skinned, a word of caution when wearing white. The whole white on white can have the same muting effect. Not flattering. Theres nothing wrong with white accents just sport it in moderation.

^^See where Im going with this?

However I do give an A+ for wearing those nude heels.

FACT: A shoe that matches your skin tone makes your legs appear longer.

I'm hoping this nude trend gets taken so far that people just start walking around naked!
