Nude shoes are the absolute must-have for any well-dressed lady. A nude heel is the equivalant of the LBD (little black dress), so your wardrobe is simply incomplete without it. The nude shoe elongates the legs and is a seasonless classic. You can pretty much mix and match a nude heel with any dress or skirt to get the look you want. Think of your nude shoes as wardrobe magic.


Dresses are the perfect thing to wear with your nude pumps. The dress can be anything from a shift to a wrap. The only key requirement is that the dress be shorter than mid shin. A shorter dress allows nudes to do what they do best, elongate your legs. Your legs can be looking just like Giselle's in your nude footwear. If your nude shoes are high heels, they will make your legs look slimmer too. A dress will allow you to show your legs off and your nude shoes will draw attention to the dress, not your feet.

Bright Colors and Patterns

Just like a glass slipper, the nude shoe is totally impartial. The color won't clash with other colors, so you've got room to get funky and creative. Bright patterns and colors look great with nude shoes. Jewel tones are an excellent choice because, according to celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez, jewel tones mimic jewelry on skin.

Black and Navy

A black cocktail dress, navy trousers or skinny jeans will all look great with nude shoes. Go for an all-black outfit for elegance, or try navy if you want a hint of color. Dark clothes with nude shoes is a lovely minimalist look, a perfect way to make an understated statement.


Wearing nude shoes with nude clothes works surprisingly well. It won't look over the top -- as long as your skin isn't the same color as everything else you're wearing! The various shades of nudes -- taupe, beige, blush -- give you multiple options. You'll look sleek and stylish.
