5 Fashions: In the Nude

Nude is a trend that refuses to go away- despite blogging about it last summer, it seems that the our wardrobes for 2010 are going to be filled with the same ice creamy, pastel tones. If you're a bit clueless when it comes to this softer, more fragile palette, never fear- I'm here to tell you everything you need to know.

For all of the girly-girls out there, a pastel pink is bang on trend this season. Go for something a little more low-cut and curve flattering, such as this gorgeous parachute dress above (a steal at Asos for only £20) to add a bit of sensuality to this delicate look.

For those who aren't much feeling the cute and innocent look this season, you could always opt for a lace dress. The dress above is in at Topshop for £45.00, and perfectly combines the risqué lace (which seems to be everywhere at the moment) with a more demure pastel tone. It also features those straight-off-the-catwalk exaggerated shoulders to boot- lovely.

Continuing the lace theme, a pastel palette may be the perfect thing to get you acquainted with your vintage side. Although the skirt above is Miss Selfridge, it does that have that gorgeous aged look about it- although if you can, have a rummage in a local charity shop. Although most of it will be crap, spending an afternoon knee-deep in used orthopaedic shoes we be worth it if you find a perfect, one of a kind piece.

Another blast from the past, the denim shirt is everywhere at the moment. Plus a lighter denim (such as this one, Dorothy Perkins £26), could be the perfect best friend for many of this season's pastel accoutrements. Although, I must ask you not to do double denim. PLEASE. The 80's finished over 10 years ago, and really wasn't all that great. John Lennon died, the Cold War happened and there was widespread economic difficulty- why would you want to relive that?!?

As I predicted, orange has been rearing its ugly head. But fear not- thanks to pastels, a new shade of orange is gracing the high streets, and it's actually wearable! This beautiful peachy dress (Topshop again, £35) is a perfect example of how orange is becoming wearable for the masses.

I've heard that denim has made a huge comeback. Shirts, dresses, skirts etc...I like that because I always feel comfortable in denim. I like the pink as well, very clean, feminine and soft.

Totally agree- even us non-girly-girls can admit, it's quite nice to see a bit of pastel pink in the shop windows :)
