Neutrals are great pieces to have in your wardrobe. Their soft and subtle appeal is irresistible, and you simply can’t go wrong. Neutrals are a great way to calm your wardrobe down from the bright tones of summer and transition into fall, although neutrals can easily be worn anytime during the year.
Check out these gorgeous neutral ensembles for inspiration.
Colors I love to wear include nude with black, white, gold and pink/blush. Think basic colors when you are trying to create your nude ensemble, it will make for a classic and timeless look.
If you’re looking to invest in some gorgeous and classic nude pieces, I have a few picked out. Try buying a pair of nude heels, they will make you legs look longer than ever! Check out this suede-style pair from Zappos.com for $49.00, or this pair from DSW in satin for $39.95. Nude heels go with almost any outfit so they are definitely worth investing in!
Also try a nude bag, a perfectly versatile piece for your everyday life. Your nude bag can easily be worn with any day-to-day outfit. Try a handbag like this one from ASOS. You can’t go wrong with the structured look and the gold detailing, plus it’s only $58.00. Or try a simple clutch with a chain for easy carryings, perfect for lunch or a night out.
Lastly, I love a nude blouse. It’s so classic, beautiful and easy to wear that you will make a statement every time you put it on. I found this one from Zappos that I love, it’s simple and easy but the sheer makes it extra special. It can be worn to the office if paired with a black pencil skirt and heels, for a dinner date try it with a white lace skirt and gold accessories, or even just throw on some jeans and boots for a day out and about.
So go nude! You won’t regret it!
