I often see celebrities wear dresses or outfits that are entirely in nude colors. The look is bold, put together, and makes quite the style statement. Many admirers of the trend may believe their skin tone is unsuitable for the look but actually that is quite the contrary. Everyone can wear nude colors, just as long as they take into consideration the following tips:
Pick the Right Shade
Our skin tones vary so a nude colored dress or outfit that looks spectacular on someone else may not look as stellar on you. Look at yourself in the mirror and determine your base skin tone. For instance, if your natural hair color is red chances are your skin toned is more pink based. If you are more tan, then colors such as sandstones or beiges may suit you better. In this photo tan Rosario Dawson wears a dress that is complimentary to her skin tone. While in this picture Anna Kendrick wears a dress that is based off her pink skin tone.
Wear Nude Pumps
When celebrities opt for a bare colored palate they often wear flesh colored pumps. The reason they do this is to avoid distracting from the outfit or dress. It is possible to sport shoes that are a different color but only if like colored accessories are incorporated into the outfit. However, if the look you are trying to achieve is soft and romantic,nude pumps are best.
Have a Fresh Face
When going for the bare look, it is imperative that your make up not look over the top or excessively bold. A fresh faced look is soft and romantic. Wear eye shadows that are similar to your skin tone. Also, keep the lipstick a rosy pink. I’ve seen celebrities in some style magazines apply red lipstick in order to add a splash of color to the ensemble. This can be done but be sure to get a second opinion from a friend or family member before heading out the door.
Wear Soft Jewelry
Nude colors can appear very Victorian since that look is very romantic and ethereal as well. When wearing jewelry with nude colors the wash of the jewelry can be antique looking. But, it can also be more modern and soft golds, silvers, or small diamonds can be worn for a more updated look.
