When it comes to building a timeless wardrobe, one of the most important items you should add to your collection is a pair of nude pumps. In the right shade, of course.
Not only does the heel help to boost your height and make your gams look taut and toned, but the flattering nude shade also blends in with your skin and adds to the illusion of a taller stature. We also love how the shade is so versatile that it can be worn with just about any garment, adding a classy finishing touch to your ensemble without stealing attention from the rest of your look. Unless you want it to of course!
Like lipsticks and underwear, the colour “nude” has been loosely defined and varies between brands and styles, but they often centre around a palette of beiges, corals, slate greys and blush pinks. Choose one that complements your skin tone—whether it is warm, neutral or cool—and the depth, i.e. how light or dark-skinned you are, to ensure the shoe blends in seamlessly with your natural skin tone.
