Some of my readers have been asking, “What’s the story with these skin toned shoes that are everywhere this spring? Should I be buying a pair, or are 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 Terri Hatcher.
If she had worn black shoes, or any other color shoe with this red dress, your eye would have been drawn downwards 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 quite a range out there. Here are a few nudes I’ve spotted that are chic and fabulous after 40!
