Finding the Perfect Shade of Nude Pumps Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

Ask any fashion editor the most important shoes a woman could have in her wardrobe and the answer will be the same: nude pumps. The timeless closet staple not only gives the illusion of slimmer, longer legs, it pairs brilliantly with everything in your closet, too. But much like concealer, the key is finding the right shade for your skin tone. Cue Christian Louboutin’s Nudes collection. Available at Bergdorf Goodman, the capsule collection consists of three styles in five shades, ranging from fair blush to rich chestnut. To show you just how versatile the pumps can be, three fashion editors—Jane Keltner de Valle, Nina Garcia, and Shiona Turini—put them to the test on the streets of NYC.
