Couture Fashion Week is a really exciting time to get a glimpse into the most decadent and gorgeous designs that will soon emerge as some of the hottest trends in every day fashion. One of the trends that really stood out at last week's Fall/Winter 2013 Couture fashion week in Paris was the dominance of nude colors. On the runways at numerous shows, pale blush and light beige tones were showcased in various silhouettes and styles.
At Alexandre Vauthier, expert draping and a carefully corseted silk piece in nude showed that this color can still make a bold statement. Elie Saab's long-sleeved gown with plunging neckline and embellished details was red carpet ready. At Giorgio Armani Privé, one of my favorite collections from Fall/Winter Couture, all of the designs were based on this color story, showing the true multitude of neutral options. The chic tie-belt pants in this look were perfectly complimented by a sheer camisole and delicately bejeweled open blouse. Zuhair Murad's romantic lace dress balanced a high slit and one gauzy shoulder strap. At Jitrois, you can see how monochromatic nude separates work together for a look of modern elegance.
One of the great things about this trend is that it can flatter all skin tones- it's just a matter of finding the right spectrum for you! Add a dramatic smoky eye or bold lip color for some fun contrast. Will you be working some nude and blush colors into your wardrobe for the coming seasons?
