Nude shoes are the perfect complement to your little black dress. Wearing a chic pair of nude shoes is elegant, stylish and a definite way to get a fashion forward look working for you. The nude color palette is complementary to all skin complexions. Nude colors are also commonly known as neutrals; the nude color spectrum is made up of a variety of flesh and pastel-like neutral colors. Nude shoes can lengthen your legs and stilettos are undoubtedly slimming and sexy. A little black dress and a sleek pair of nude heels is bound to make you sizzle on your special night out.


Tan is a lovely color to team with a chic black dress. Tan works well if your skin tone has orange undertones. Tan will enhance your complexion and give your complexion a beautiful glow. Tan is a more casual nude tone and so will work well with a short black dress for a party look.


Blush is a pink nude tone with strong red undertones. This cool shade is elegant and will complement skin with naturally red undertones. Test your undertones by standing in natural sunlight. If you blush easily naturally, blush pink nude shoes are the ideal footwear for you. Worn with a black dress the shoes will appear richer and stronger and less airy.


Taupe is a casual nude shade. It is easily dressed up in a more shimmery material, such as satin or patent. Select a patent, satin or even suede pair of taupe shoes to wear with your elegant black dress. This will give your black dress a little extra color whilst keeping some subtle elegance and chicness.


Cream is another excellent shade especially suited to very pale ladies. The cream will help to give your fair skin a little color whilst complementing your dress. Cream is a luxurious colour and so works well for high end luxury events. Team with a floor length black gown for a completely fabulous look.
