THE NEW NUDE

May 27, 2014

Pink has turned subversive this season in the many incarnations that bear interesting names; there is powder pink, sideshow rose, new york pink, champagne pink and silver pink that work beautifully tonally with the quirkily named beiges such as desert sand and cosmic latte, brown shades such as camel, fawn and wheat, whites such as ivory, seashell and linen and that is without even getting into equally gorgeous shades of taupes or greys!

Truly the possibilities are endless and the combinations so incredibly complimentary and utterly chic, that the new nude is not only a new world of countless amalgamations but a trend that looks timeless, expensive, pulled together and stylish.

This powdery pastel pink dress, above, is like the 21st century rendition of a sexy Studio 54 number with it’s voluminous sleeves and daring thigh split – just made for cutting the rug! (Dion Lee dress, Dawn is Mine choker, Christian Louboutin shoes)

The perfect dress for work must be one that strikes a balance between feminine, sharp, practical and chic – this one, above left, covers all the bases plus it’s a slick light shade of slate. Pair with nudes for an immaculate tonal finish. (Karen Walker dress, Emilio Pucci bag, Stuart Weitzman shoes)

The best way to accessorise nudes this season is with gold tone jewellery, pops of bright red and rose flushed cheeks. (Clockwise from bottom left: OPI nail lacquer in Big Apple Red, Dawn is Mine choker, Pushmataaha serpent bracelet, Twenty One Degrees seahorse bangle, Dior Diorblush cheek creme in Bikini, Mac lipstick in Lady Danger, Mania Mania necklace, Monica Vinader bracelet)
