Nude Shoes and How to Wear Them


There is no doubt that Catherine Middleton is the style icon of the moment, and probably will be for a long time to come.  Pretty much everything she wears sells out in minutes – retailers and designers are clamouring for Kate to wear an item from their collection, as it’s pretty much guaranteed to fly off the shelves.  The “Kate effect” is definitely a contributing factor when it comes to the rise in popularity of nude shoes.  A pair of nude shoes should be a staple item in every woman’s wardrobe, as they are extremely versatile, complementing any colour outfit, and in my opinion, their best feature is that they create an illusion of added height.  Below is a selection of nude shoes available at the moment.

Domestic Princess tips:
  1. When choosing nude coloured shoes, opt for a pair that are one or two shades lighter than your own skin tone.
  2. Choose a simple and plain pair, so as not to detract from the rest of the outfit.
  3. Nude shoes look and work best as a high or wedge heel – don’t be tempted to go for flats.
  4. Nude shoes look best with a bare leg, but if you must wear it with stockings or tights, opt for matt flesh-tone ones.  Again, matching the colour as close as possible to your own skin tone.
Do you own a nude pair of shoes?  Are there any here that take your fancy?
There won’t be a post this Wednesday, but check back on Thursday instead!
With much love

  1. Extensive choice but nothing suitable for tramping the hills of Wales!

  2. We have the same taste. Your favourite shoes were also my pick. Nice red accent!

  3. Gotta love the LK Bennets!

    You’re a girl after my own heart. It’s got to be the CL’s! I have them without the sling back. They are one of my favourite pairs of shoes.
