Summer is upon us. Pastels and nudes seem to be storming the shelves. However, much to my great despair, pastel and nude shades of clothing wash me out and leave my looking grey and, quite frankly, rather unfortunately unwell. If you do have the same problem, perhaps try nude heels, worn with skin colour tights or bare legs (depending on how brave you are) they elongate your legs.
Nude lipstick, worn delicately with mascara and fresh, dewy complextion, can give a beautiful parisian feel to an otherwise every day look. Also, dusky pink or pastel minty greens for nail varnish can update a look subtlely, making you feel more fashion forward without the washed out, ghostly.
Tights or hoisery, white, pale pink, mint green, light blue. Floaty, chiffon, ruffles, delicacy, draped.
Embrace the trend rather than hide from it.
