You Said: Yes to Nude Colors

March 16th, 2009


gestuz-ruffle-waist-skirt_031509We asked: Would you wear Nude Colors?

You said:  Yes to Nude Colors, with a 56% to 44% vote.

Style tip? While they look positively delicious on dark skin tones, Nude colors, like Pastel Colors, have a tendency to wash out fair skin tones.  If you’re fair skinned and still love the look, try wearing a nude colored skirt (instead of a blouse) to minimize the wash-out effect on your face. 

Next question: Florals are replacing Feathers as the embellishment of choice this Spring.  But would you wear them?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

Editor’s Note (3/17/09): Our apologies, dear readers, for conflating "nude" with vanilla colored skin.  You’re completely right - "nude" isn’t a single color and can be anything from dark espresso to a light vanilla cream.  The style advice above is for beige colored clothing, but it also applies to chocolate colored clothing on women with dark skin.  If you have dark skin but love wearing a mocha brown, it’s best worn as a skirt.  Pair it with a pretty pastel colored top (a robin’s egg blue, perhaps) for a sophisticated and color coordinated look.

    I’m not a huge fan of flowy florals, but I do wear them on occasion. And I DEFINITELY find them more versatile than feathers!

    I think I’d disappear in nudes– I’m rather pale. A skirt would work better for me. Cute Ruffle Waist Skirt.

    I’m pretty pale as well, but I like to try on things. Every once in awhile, I try on a nude colored shirt in store…and realize that it’s really better in skirt form!

    Wow, that floral shirt really is cuff-tastic!

    If I’m dark-skinned, then it’s not really wearing “nude” now is it?
