Day to Night: Shirt Dress

Day to Night: Shirt Dress

You can never own too many shirt dresses!

Perfect for summer days, the shirtdress is ideal for casual Fridays, or off-duty days. This wardrobe essential can also go from day-to-night — for a sophisticated daytime look, just add sandals and a (goes everywhere with everything) cross-body handbag. Glam it up at night with cut-out heels and a playful clutch.

Wardrobe Staple: Nude Pumps

Wardrobe Staple: Nude Pumps

Nude pumps! Every girl needs at least one pair in her wardrobe. This color elongates your legs and (regardless of your personal style) will work with just about anything currently hanging in your closet.

Just look at Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian –both women are permanent fixtures in fashion magazines for their incredible and enviable style, have two completely different aesthetics– and yet nude pumps are a constant staple in their footwear!  Kate, who I would categorize as “the classicist” loves to pair them with elegant knee-length dresses. While conversely, Kim “the bombshell” is partial to styling them with provocative bodycon dresses, or her signature street style of a structured blazer and skinny jeans.

This versatile hue works for day or evening, and with everything from boyfriend jeans to cocktail dresses. Either way you can’t go wrong with this fall must-have.

A “Nude” Attitude

It’s a staple in women’s footwear. It goes with just about any outfit. Magazine editors implore every woman to invest in a pair. Yes, I’m talking about the nude pump. When it comes to the “nude” pump they’re always praised for their leg-lengthening capabilities, how they seemingly fade/blend into the skin, visually extending the line of the leg – and ultimately adding height to one’s frame. But does one size shade fits all…? Nope! And Christian Louboutin seems to agree.

The Nude Collection

This is genius, and I can’t believe that a collection such as this hasn’t debuted sooner. Typically nude (or flesh-toned) pumps are in shades of beige, pale peach or tan tones, catering mostly to Caucasian women and would blend seamlessly against their skin, now those same pair of heels would contrast against a woman of color. This is why Christian Louboutin has created The Nudes Collection. A series of pumps available in 5 styles and in 5 shades (ranging from fair to deep chestnut).

The Nudes Collection

This collection was released in the fall of 2013, awhile ago I know, but I only saw an interview where he discussed the collection and how the idea came about a couple of hours ago…check it out below.
