You probably already have a wardrobe full of this season’s purples, teals, and mustards but expanding your collection to include neutral shades adds instant punch to your closet by giving your favourites a stylish backdrop to stand out against. In fashion, neutrals are said to be colours that can blend with any other colours without creating emotion. Typically, these are black, grey, white, khaki, olive, cream, silver, gold and caramel and, the most on-trend for 2017, nude.
Nude is having a bit of a moment because of its ability to look fresh, refined and luxurious. It has a certain type of femininity to it; an air of glamour while still being resoundingly understated. However, nude does come with a downside and that’s the very real prospect of appearing washed out. While white carries a freshness and olive can work to add warmth, nude can serve to be draining. This is why it’s good to get it right. Follow our 5 step guide to nailing nude below;
Finding the right shade for your hair and skin tone can prove tricky, especially for those with blonde hair and paler complexions. However, this problem can be overcome by seeking out shades in a muted blush tone – which can serve to add warmth and depth. This Blush Thick Cable Cashmere Fur Pom Pom Beanie is just the right tone to universally flatter.
Use Your Head
If you want to give a nod to the nude trend, but aren’t really sure where to start – use your head and start with accessories. This Blush Chunky Rib Knit Cashmere Turban is the stuff dreams are made of – a simple and chic way to embrace this season’s biggest hue.
It’s A Wrap
One of the easiest ways to be trend aware is to don a scarf in this season’s colours. However, when it comes to nudes – the trick has to be in getting the texture right. Too heavy and the accessories might serve to actually drown out an outfit, too light and it might not make enough of a statement. In this case, a pale nude hue calls for something light, yet voluminous - making this Blush Oversize Kid Mohair Shawl the perfect companion to your everyday wardrobe.
Update Your Coat
While we do love a nude coat, it can be a difficult colour to pull off if your everyday wardrobe is lacking in punch or is also neutral heavy. Instead of seeking out a full neutral jacket, why not update your look with the Cashmere Leather and Fur Collar. This biscuit coloured collar makes a fashionable update to any coat – adding warmth and texture, whilst giving a nod to this season’s most coveted coloured.
Get a Grip
If you like the idea of a splash accessories, then why not also consider your hands with these Blush Thick Cable Cashmere Wrist Warmers. Providing all the functionality of a glove, these warmers add a pop of nude tone to your wardrobe in a quirky way.
