Some of my readers have asked about skin toned shoes and if they should be buying a pair, or whether they just a passing fad?
If you haven’t noticed, nude or flesh toned shoes are all the rage at the moment, and that’s good news. Not only do go with everything, but they make your legs look ultra long and lean. Take a look at Teri Hatcher.
If she had worn black shoes, or any other color shoe with this red dress, your eye would have been drawn down to her feet. Her legs would have looked cut off at her feet, and her legs would have looked shorter.
With nude colored shoes, her legs go on for miles. Nude colored shoes can be worn with any other color out there, including black, which means you can save money if you are on a tight budget by buying one good pair and wearing them to death.
They look extra fab when you wear them with a print dress because all attention stays on the dress and makes it pop. The trick is finding a shade that matches your skin tone so you get the most nude look.
Some of us have pinker skin, some more yellow, taupe or brown. Thankfully, there’s a range of shades out there. Here are a few nudes I’ve spotted that are chic and fabulous after 40!
|Nude and Not too high!
Finally some relief for your aching 40+ feet! Dainty kitten heels are comfy and fashionable this spring. This feminine, lattice design from Via Spiga would look great with a pretty dress.(Nordstrom)
|Strap Happy Feet, schmeet!!
We know some of you never plan to give up your heels! So, when you really want to show who’s in charge, slip on a pair of these sexy, strappy stilettos! These Stuart Weitzman beauties have a back zip and 5″ heel! ( Saks)
If your skin color is on the cool side and seems more pink than golden, then these flesh toned pumps with a hint of pink are for you! This unique color, from Jimmy Choo, is a favorite with celebrities like Angelina Jolie who has been seen wearing them on and off the red carpet. (Saks)
I always love a ballet flat and no one makes them as lovely as Tory Burch. The shiny patent leather and gold buckle gives this nearly nude a touch of class.(Nordstrom)
|Hint o’ Color
Here’s a clever pair of Kate Spade wedges that read nude when you look at them dead on, but turn sideways and you get a cheeky rainbow surprise! (Saks)
|Nude and Slightly Naughty!
They’re light enough to make your legs look long, and sexy enough to make your feet sizzle. Snakeskin pumps adds a hint of edginess! We love the hidden platform which gives you the height without sacrificing comfort.
