Trends: Sandstorm, in the Nude


When I was looking at Resort 2010, I noticed an emerging color trend. Nudes, khaki, buff and flesh tones were taking the runway by storm. From Alexander Wang to Helmut Lang, Balenciaga andElise Overland, everyone was feeling the nudes. They were sporty at Miu Miu, preppy at Balenciaga, sexy at Preen and mysterious at Yves Saint Laurent and goddess like at Temperley and Yigal Azrouel.

The tones were often paired with each other or greys to create layered neutrals that are full of sophistication and depth. There is something soft yet seductive about fleshy tones. I suppose you can call them your not so basic basic? This ain't your average pair of khaki's. Are you feeling it?

My friend got an Alexander Wang dress recently and I've noticed the color! It's a beautiful dress!

And I like those colors! It's not overdone or anything, it just looks good. :)

I've been so into nudes and sandy shades - even pairing em with gray to my inner circles perplex-ions. Nice to see it's actually somethin real. I like.

Nudes are always a safe choice. Not sure if you've checked out the Pantone colors for autumn, but it's blowing up with nudes and browns. Hot stuff.
