7 Brands That Specialise in Different Shades of Nude

Hannah Almassi

In 2017, when fashion brands use the term "nude" for products, you would hope that they are referring to a spectrum of skin tones. Once upon a time, unfortunately, it denoted a very specific pinkish shade of pale taupe, but now, if you're looking for nude shoes, clothes, lingerie or hosiery, you'd be in luck no matter what your pigmentation. Granted, the industry still has a long way to go in providing varied flesh tones as standard, but there is a slew of exciting brands—both new and old—that have stepped up to start filling this huge gap in the retail market, and we'd like to share them with you. There's even a website that can help you locate products suited to your skin tone—check out Nudest for more info.

Whether you've been searching endlessly for the perfect pair of leg-lengthening pumps, a bra that is neither jet-black nor bright-white, or you simply want a pair of 40 deniers that don't look like a tango ballroom dancer's tights, we've got the goods. There are two types of shopping—sensible purchases and frivolous ones—and while this story definitely falls into the former category, we defy you to not enjoy trying on Monsieur Christian Louboutin's perfect nude court shoes on for size— in fact, you've got more choice than ever as the brand has launched another two perfect styles for your perusal.
