The colour “Nude” is described as a shade that is a little darker than champagne, lighter than sand and perhaps with a hint of blush or peach – Nola.com
According to the online colour finder, Pantone.com; “Nude” comes up as light beige in the description.
There is no one single term to describe the term “nude” in fashion, because the word is scattered around pale hues, flesh skin tones and neutral colour palettes, that cover an array of whites, pinks, yellows, beiges and browns (according to stylist David Zyla on Nola.com).
One thing for sure is that the colour “nude”, pretty much flatters any skin colour when it comes to both make up and clothing. That Nude appeal was the order of the day with this ensemble. I was inspired by the theme of my year, which is “in transitioning”. Part of which centres around a structured finish. I wanted to channel my best Coco Chanel/Effortless Chic look with a neutral colour palette from head to toe. For some reason, the serious librarian adage was popping in my head, which made me add the beige cardigan as a throw over. The finished look felt like a kick into Old Hollywood glamour with the peep toe heels and very minimal jewellery.
