The DO'S and definitely DON'TS of Nude Shoes

  • Never wear flesh-coloured shoes that are more than two shades darker than your own skin tone – one or two shades lighter is more flattering.

  • ‘Nude on nude’ – head-to-toe flesh-tone fashion – is tricky to carry off. It’s safer to opt for shoes OR a dress, and go for a bold colour with the other.
  • Nude shoes need to be in tip-top condition – wear scuffed ones and you may as well bare your bunions to the world.
  • Sheer flesh-tone hosiery is making a comeback, and acts like a ‘foundation’ for the legs, smoothing out imperfections. Matt is preferable, as shiny can make calves look like raw sausages. The Duchess of Cambridge opts for a hint of sheen, but she does have perfect pins.
  • Care for nude leather using a ‘neutral’ or clear shoe polish. Use a tiny amount of petroleum jelly on patent leather to maintain suppleness. Revive suede by steaming it over the kettle and brush up the pile with a suede brush.

  • Your feet need to look good, as well as your shoes. A pedicure is worth the investment.
