Fashion Trends: The Whites and Nudes

by Nerisha Penrose

Ahhhh. There’s something about the spring season that just makes me (dare I say it), HAPPY. The freshly blossomed flowers, the season’s trends and oh, THE END OF THE SEMESTER! But no really, winter monochrome outfits get swapped for bright color hues. Aside from the vibrant colors of spring, white and nude seems to be my favorite of the season. With these cool spring tones, the perfect outfit can be created for the day or night.

White:
“Rock that all white when I’m feeling Godly”
Trendsetters, where would we be without the color white? We can all remember times where a white blouse (or pant) came in handy to complete a look. All white ensembles are the chicest styles of the spring season. It’s clean, refreshing and versatile. Since summer is approaching and most of us are shopping for “work appropriate yet stylish” clothes for our internships, an all-white outfit can be the perfect look for the office. You can combine a white pencil skirt with a white flowy, chiffon blouse and a few bright colored accessories and BOOM, you’ve been deemed the office’s “It Girl”.

Nude:
Elegance, class, and sophistication are not really the first thing that comes to mind when you hear nude right? Well thank god that I’m actually referring to the color nude and not the act of… well you know what I mean. Beige, Toasted Almond, or whatever you want to call it, nude is another versatile color that should be in everyone’s closet. The key to styling nude clothing is to pair it with other subtle colors such as black, gray, blush, white and even denim! No matter how you pair the pale shade, nude will always add a sophisticated edge to your look. Kim Kardashian is known for her brilliant execution of styling nude with neutral colors or even wearing double nude. A pair of nude cigarette trousers, a gray V-neck t-shirt and a blush boyfriend blazer is the perfect example of a simple, yet classy look.

You can dress these cool shades up or take a more casual approach. Either way, these colors are a force to be reckoned with.
