Dare to go Nude

BY YEMISI SULEIMAN

Ok, we are not asking you to go nude on skin here, but just put on some pretty flesh-toned fashion. When you wear a nude color, it disappears against your skin. The color is deceptive and gives the illusion of skin.

Anyone can wear it, it just depends on the shade, Light complexions should look for more of a rosey, pinky shade, where as darker tones can go more lighter shade. Wear nudes in chiffons for tops and dresses, cotton for jackets, for shirts and dresses

To inject nudity into your wardrobe invest in a nude pump: The nude pump is something every woman should have in her closet. They are not difficult to wear because nude (like black) is a neutral, nude heels go with almost everything. Try a pair with black pants, your favorite skinny jeans, or even super-trendy bright white, shredded denim. You can even wear them with shorts.

How to go nude

* Black is always an easy go-to to pair it with but Jewel tones are also good — it kind of parallels the idea of jewels on bare skin.”

Fashion risk takers should not shy from brighter colors. If you are looking for something a little more fashion forward pair it with red and stand out.•

When wearing nudes, go with tonal accessories or opt for a contrasting black.

• Try a black dress with a nude heel. It not only looks chic but will elongate your legs.

• For a different contrast, accessorize nude with gold necklaces, cuffs and statement rings. The contrast works well with lighter silk and chiffon fabrics.

• Don’t be afraid to mix different nude tones into your outfit.

• Buy jackets and tops in shades that complement your skin tone.
