My favorite friend in fashion has got to be a nude stiletto heel. When wearing as much color as I normally do with my vintage dresses, I always need accessories that will compliment but will not compete with the outfit. Since color is a huge trend for Spring 2011--particularly in shades of pink and orange--I anticipate that many women will be faced with the challenge of how to coordinate a brightly colored ensemble. In fact, if you've always been a fan of fashionable black, it may very well be the first time. So when playing with your options this colorful Spring, may I suggest that you go nude.
Nude heels go with everything. There's nothing in your wardrobe that won't go with nude heels, so know that they're a worthwhile investment. Beyond colorful dresses, they're a phenomenal accompaniment to basics you already have in black or white. And though they're awfully good at dressing up an outfit, they also dress all the way down to denim just as well.
Added bonus? Nude heels elongate your legs. We've all heard it before in the magazines and it's true true true. They key is finding a shade or two (or three) of nude that suit your skin tone the best. This includes metallics, too, which I consider a nude shoe for evening. Another key is chosing the right shapes, and my favorites are a pointed pump, a peeptoe pump, or a strappy mule...all with stiletto heels. I often go to Charles David (shown above and in outfits below) because they consistently offer classic, sophisticated, and sexy designs. Just perfect for me and my GlamAmor.
