In all seriousness, now is the time to 'go nude'. Don't panic though, I am of course referring to incorporating clothes and accessories in nude shades into your SS10' wardrobe and not advocating bouts of public nakedness... after all less is definitely more as they say.
So that small issue taken care of and now onto the fashion. Nude shades are obviously synonymous with Spring as most people want to brighten up their lives and in turn their wardrobes after the bright lights of Christmas have been packed away for another year and the doom and gloom of January has crept in. Nude shades were all over the catwalk, from Alberta Ferretti to Donna Karan to Lanvin (see above).
So here's my pick of the top wardrobe updates in nude shades. Adapt them into your Spring wardobe but remember not to wear them all at once!
1. The nude basic tee - so versatile and looks effortless with black or blue skinny jeans, a stylish winter coat and ankle boots. This one is only £6 from New Look and is cropped as well, bonus!
2. Nude brogues - so chic with a muted floral or Parisian style dress for feminine daywear. Try this great pair from Fearne Cotton's range at Very.co.uk for £32.
3. The stylish nude day bag - goes with any colour coat and instantly brightens up your outfit and makes it stand out against everyone else's boring black bags! There are loads of great leather ones out there but I am particularly coveting this patent grey and nude tote from ASOS.com for a reasonable £32.
4. The nude evening dress - whilst nude may not seem an obvious shade for going out wear it can be worn with a whole host of accessories and leaves you lots of room to experiment with colours in your makeup. This one is lovely AND affordable, £25 from Desireclothing.co.uk.
