image“Wow, why would someone ever go out dressed like that? She has just a t-shirt on o!” My friend exclaimed, referring to the young lady walking right in front of us dressed in what seems like an ordinary t-shirt and my friend who happens to be a guy, was pretty sure the lady had nothing else on apart from that t-shirt. Well,I had a good laugh, thereafter enlightened him that the lady actually paired the t-shirt with nude leggings though it took him walking so close to the lady before he got fully convinced she was indeed wearing a pair of leggings. I’ve seen other cases too where ladies wear clothes but appear naked from a distance. This doesn’t have to be so, you can wear nude clothes without appearing naked!
Now, nude clothes shouldn’t be confused with the ‘naked’ dress.

The naked dress is that ‘naked’ dress Beyoncè, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian wore to the 2015 MET Gala. A nude dress isn’t that dress that shows off skin like the naked dress, it’s only so called because of its colour. Nude is a beautiful color though it isn’t a single color just like Christian Louboutin said. imageIt is that color that matches the wearer’s skin tone, it varies in shades and could be any of Caramel, Hazelnut, Almond, Coffee, Chocolate, Coco, Sand, Taupe, Bronze e.t.c. This color goes with every other color, making it a neutral color. Nude shoes are a must have. They make ones legs appear longer and slimmer because they blend with the wearer’s skin tone.
But when it comes to wearing nude clothes, care must be taken so you don’t appear like you aren’t wearing anything at all, just like that lady walking in front of my friend and I.

These are some tips I think should be put to mind:

1. Always choose a shade that is a bit lighter or darker than your skin tone.imageimageimageimageimageimage

2. When it comes to nude leggings, always wear a long top even though I believe this rule applies to every other form of leggings.

3. If going for a nude monochromatic look, make sure your separates (blouse, skirt, pants) are in different shades of nude i.e. Don’t wear the same shade from head to toe.imageimageimageimage

For now, these are the few tips I have. If you have more tips on this, kindly drop them in the comment box. I hope you have a great weekend. Keep looking beautiful!

    This site takes too much time before loading. To access it, I have to wait for like some seconds for the status bar to full and then switch off my data connection. Then bam, the page is loaded. Can now switch back on my data connection. Nice post
