Hello everyone! I'm sorry for keeping all my current posts on hold. I've been really busy preparing for the medical board exams, but I thought I'd take a short break and share this look with you guys. In between memorizing blood supplies and innervation, street style remains to be my personal happy place.
So here's the deal, wearing nude tones is always a tricky situation. Agree with me? For the lucky ladies out there with modelesque and lithe frames, it's not as hard. You gals can get away with almost anything. If you don't believe me, check out Bella Hadid's nude cropped top - legging duo. I cannot imagine wearing the same ensemble with the same confidence. Bella on the other hand, F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S!

But if you take the average woman who has to deal with a few curves here and there *raises hand* , wearing nude hues can be both a task and a let down. First of all, it will NEVER be a slimming color. Being on the lighter side of the color specturm, it will inevitably accentuate all your nooks and crannies. Secondly, choosing the proper shade is key. Trust me, you do not want to look naked on the streets. Sounds like a lot to think about, so the question is...why bother? Why? Because if you do it right, nude tones are absoultely chic, and an out-of-the-box option for sophistication. If you're like me, and challenging your personal style is a must, you'll find that you'll love your nudes as much as your white and black favorites.
In this look, I'm wearing a jumpsuit from In Love with Fashion UK (ILWF). This brand is a favorite of mine if I'm looking for smart one-pieces. This one came in a lovely apricot color. One trick when wearing nude is to avoid going skin-tight. I know that I'm a little curvier on my hips, so I stuck with a wide-leg pant. Another tip is to go for fabrics that will not cling to your body. Classic silhouettes are key to avoid catching attention in the wrong way.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post and found this helpful in your journey to finding the right nude hues. When you do, I'd love to see your take on it!
