Shades of Nude

Nude, and I don’t mean nakedness, has become the “it” color of the season. Sometimes described as a beige and ranging in shades from cream to brown, fashion has revived this neutral trend from, of course, the ‘70s. Finding the right nude depends on your hair, eye, and, most importantly, skin tone. Just in the last couple of years, brands realized that this is not a “one color fits all,” and are producing a variety of shades for the consumer. This hue is deservedly being modernized, and the trend of combining various shades of nude into head-to-toe looks is surfacing.

Kanye West’s Yeezy Spring 2016 collection, although it received copious amounts of negative reviews, exemplified this recent trend. Its nude monochromatic creations were coordinated according to models’ skin tones, making a bold statement about skin color. Christian Louboutin also campaigns for diversity in flesh tones by supporting the #NudesforAll social media drive. This year the designer added more shades to his “Les Nudes” footwear collection. Companies are finding it imminent to target demographics of all color, reaching the masses and putting the nude movement into full effect.

Inspired by fashion’s progressiveness, I decided to participate in this movement by wearing a nude ensemble of my own. I found a ribbed knit dress (another ‘70s hot item) with pink undertones from Nasty Gal. Many websites, including Nasty Gal, allow you to filter clothes by color, making it easy to find the right shade for your skin tone. And because I love a good storyline, I channeled my inner hitchhiker, wishing times were as carefree as the decade fashion is now paying homage to.

  • As someone who definitely didn’t fit the “nude” trend a few years back I’m glad designers are starting to accommodate other skin tones. I love this dress you’re wearing. The flare at the bottom and the back are lovely!
