In the Nude

20 Jan

It’s taken me some time to get used to it, but that pale pink/cream/nude color seems really popular right now.  And I think I like it.

While watching the Golden Globes last weekend, it seemed like there were four colors on the red carpet: black, emerald, bright pink and red, and a million nude-ish dresses.  And instead of looking washed out, the women looked gorgeous.

Why does it work?  You have to chose the right color against your skin, of course.  The slightest shift in color can make or break it.  I am also wondering if it has something to do with all the embellishments.  The designs of these garments are never plain.  They have sparkles, ruffles, lace…

Also love this:

Nude color, deep scoop back, princess poof shoulders and sparkly. WIN.

    Except it’s totally not a scoop back, it’s mesh! And that freaks me out and looks cheap. Ugh.
