Asos Premium Flower Detail Hat
It’s been no secret for a while now that in fashion, nude tones are hot, hot, hot. Ever since pale peaches, beiges and neutral greys have become en vogue they’ve been absolutely everywhere, from buttery leather totes at Mulberry to refreshingly pretty and feminine blazers at your local Topshop. With the emergence of red-hot colour being the next explosive trend on the catwalk, as seen at Jil Sander and House of Holland, you might be mistaken to think that nude is on it’s way out – but au contraire, it’s not. With the dazzling success of December’s “Black Swan”, starring Natalie Portman, ballet-beautiful fashion is more in than ever.
Wondering how to carry these colours into your spring/summer wardrobe as the year continues? Make like Stella McCartney, who boldly opted for pale pink and peach skinny trouser suits in her S/S 2011 collection, and choose jackets and slim-fitting chinos in nude tones for a look that is feminine, yet manages to be fashion forward. When it comes to eveningwear, anything goes – romance is the word for the whole season and you can opt for as many ruffles, embellishments and pleats as you like.
