Fundamentally Fabulous ~ The Nude Shoe

10 September 2013

I am about to reveal a universal truth. 

A woman's wardrobe will never be complete without a nude stiletto or pump; a timeless fashion trend, a red carpet secret and forever a fundamental wardrobe staple. 

The master of deception, this shoe is the ultimate leg extender, creating the illusion of the long and lean. While this fact in itself is reason enough to own several pairs, lets explore the wonder of 'nude'.

This shoe will go with almost EVERYTHING and I am yet to find a colour that it doesn't go with. It's versatility lends itself to being the perfect transitional shoe; outfit to outfit, season to season.

The most important rule to follow when choosing your nude is to find the shade that is closest to your natural skin tone. Getting this element right will result in the shoe blending in with the natural tone of your legs, the eye will naturally be drawn upward, and instantly you will have created the appearance of longer, leaner pins. 

Have an amazing dress that deserves ALL of the attention? 
Taking it into the night?  
Looking for a shoe that will go with your patterned pieces? 
Limited budget? 
Want a pair of shoes that is great with your neutral palette and perfect with colour? 
Dressing up your denim? 

There is one answer ladies. Nude. One answer though, does not limit you to one pair. 

There are so many styles to choose from, however considering our focus is the fundamental, start with either a stiletto or pump (stilettos have a thin, high heel, pumps have a lower, thicker heel) with a closed in toe, (pointed or round...OK you can have both). The benefit of the closed toe is that it will walk with you through the seasons. If you are wanting something specifically for the warmer months, a peep toe is a also a great option. 

This season, the nude shoe is very much on trend and is a must have of the moment. For the consumer,  this translates into an abundance of choices, so if you have identified a need, it's the perfect time to shop and while Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin will always remain my inspiration, there is a nude shoe to suit every budget. 
Try WittnerRMK or  Joanne Mercer on for size, and if you are looking for a designer shoe without having to pay the high end prices, you can't go past Stuart Weitzman. Not always easy to get in Australia, but available on line through retailers like Neiman Marcus who will ship internationally.

The possibilities are endless.... 

The final word? When in doubt...go nude
