Trend Alert: New Nudes


As I started putting this season’s wish list together I found myself drawn to something entirely different—fresh spring trend: nude. Rather than bright pieces or vivid prints, a simple color palette—specifically nudes—captivates me right now. There’s something about these classic colors, and neutral hues in general, that feels particularly fresh, especially when mixed with a few of-the-moment accessories!

Above, the examples from spring 2009 show. Stella McCartney’s collection was chock full of delicate shades of flax and beige, while at Chloe, the drapey paper-bag pants is so gorgeous with the scalloped blazers in the prettiest pale peach. Vera Wang and Christopher Kane just came out with a nude version of their amazing dresses. I really adore these dresses; perfect naked dresses, as well as an awesome Alexander McQueen body-con dress—so simple, so cute.

Now I’m a bit obsessed with it!
