What’s Your Nude Tone?

Tonal nudes are making an epic comeback this Spring. Whether you dress it up or dress it down, flesh tones are making appearances in fashion outlets everywhere and magazines, such as NYLON. NYLON’s March 2017 issue celebrates the “diversity of flesh-tone fashion” (NYLON).

Flesh-tones can be worn up or down, making it one of the most versatile color palette for designer labels, such as, Hood By Air, Stella McCartney, Prada, and Simone Rocha. All these designers featured nude tones in their most recent collections.

Nude tones are some of the most used colors this season for all pieces of clothing and accessories, including jumpsuits, bomber jackets, slip dresses, pant suits, shoes and trench coats. Adding a simple, tonal flesh-tones are a great way to accent your next outfit. Flesh-tone colors can also be worn by all skin tones, which is remarkable, making it versatile for all individuals.

In 2012, nude tones became such a hit that Christian Louboutin even released a whole line of nude pumps for every skin tone. In addition, flesh-tones were featured all over runways during 2012, especially during autumn and winter.

Nudal tones serve as a timeless color palette, always featured on runways every season. There is something about these tonal hues that makes it flattering on all skin tones and for all seasons. This season’s street wear should feature lots of nude tones, which is a perfect way for one to achieve a timeless, chic look, with an effortless, subtle vibe.

Lilly Sarti did an excellent job, featuring nude tones and earthy all over her Spring and Summer 2017 collection. Sarti featured nudal tones in jumpsuits, dresses, etc., emphasizing how versatile this up-and-coming trend is.

 

The whole Kardashian-Jenner clan has jumped on this trend, often sporting nude two-piece dresses and midi-length body fitting dresses.

At La Peria’s Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection party in Milan, model and fashion icon Kendall Jenner was caught busting out her nudes, wearing a plunging nude bodysuit, with silk satin nude tone skinny jeans and a nude tone cropped fur jacket.

 

Quit hiding your nudes and break them out this season! There’s nothing to be ashamed of.
