In the Nude

Get the right shade of nude and pale can look interesting on brunettes and blondes alike. You can see how the features of Christina Ricci (above) and Drew Barrymore (below), both striking in their own right, really stand out when the tone of their outfits mimic their skin tone. Important here to stress that bold lipstick will stop you from looking too ghostly and that metallic detailing or jewellery will add texture to a nude outfit and prevent it from looking like you forgot to get dressed at all.

But whilst cheap looking nude-coloured clothes are ten-a-penny on the high street it is hard to find pieces that have the same class as the Marc Jacobs and Alberta Ferretti pieces that Christina and Drew wear above. Browsing online I found a Roksanda Ilincic for Whistles dress that ticks all the boxes. This silk blend dress is £295 and is perfect for a formal occasion.
