There are lots of ‘nude’ coloured garments in clothing stores and people often comment to me that they are impossible to wear. So I want to give you some ideas on how to wear nude so you don’t look nude or washed out.
So to get past the nude nude look, you need to wear nude with a contrast colour. It works fantastically well when you repeat your eye or hair colour (or both) in your outfit.
- You can wear it with a colour similar to your eye colour – blue, green, bronze, brown, olive etc.
- You can team it with a colour similar to your hair colour – gold, caramel, taupe, chocolate, black etc.
- You can pair it with a skin enhancer – red, orange, purple, pink
- Nude shades of neutrals really need to be put with a contrasting colour to stop you from looking bland.
By pairing it with another colour existing in your natural colouring, you will be wearing your ideal contrast naturally. This creates the most harmonious look and is the ideal way to wear the nude beiges and camel colours.
cute outfit! just curious – when you say eye (or skin or lip) enhancer, do you mean something that is the same color as your eyes, or that is complimentary to your eye color (like on the color wheel)? i’m confused about what “enhancer” means. thanks!
Jenni – enhancer is the same colour – intensifier is the opposite on the colour wheel! Hope that helps.
super – thank you!
ok so i have a nude kid gold dress v=but i dont know what my nail color should be
That depends totally on your personality – they could be all kinds of colours.
