NYFW Trend I Like: The New Nude

October 8, 2009

L-R: Ports 1961, Elise Overland, Donna Karan and Donna Karan

Ok so you know I’m all about only acknowledging the trends that flatter and highlight my best assets, right? And I know that at first glance the nude trend seems unsuitable for my pale, impossible -to-tan complexion, right? Wrong! Nude neutrals are surprisingly versatile and actually work very well with paler skintones which bring attention to the subtleties of nude shades.

L-R: Thakoon, Dennia Basso, Philosophy and Tommy Hilfiger

Thinking outside of my own preferences, the new nude neutral has a lot to offer women of varying coloration. The new school of nude designs ranges from delicate pinks to bolder, brassier hues closer to dark tan or deep peach. A woman in red wants to be the center of attention, but a woman in nude is quietly confident and is comfortable, almost literally, in her own skin.
