Fashion, food, lifestyle and culture in St Albans
Now, I know that we have had one of the wettest weekends of the year, but still, ladies of St Albans do not turn your back on this summer classic. Nude shoes are once
again a must have piece of footwear for your spring/summer collection and if you don’t own a pair already then hop to it, as our little City has plenty on offer.This beautiful piece of footwear goes with pretty much any colour and turns any outfit into a chic and glamorous look. They’re great at smartening up a casual look, or giving a summery spin on a wintery classic because let’s face it, it’s so miserable out there we can’t yet bear to part with our jeans and knitwear.
They are also a very modest accompaniment to any occasion dress. Not only do they look fabulous with bold colours, but they are also understated to perfection, setting off your whole ensemble beautifully, without upstaging your dress and expensive blow dry.
Sophisticated, subtle and very sexy, they give the illusion that your legs are longer, adding a natural extension to your pins.You should try and match the nude colour to your flesh tone. Tanned, olive and darker toned skin should go for more taupe hues, whereas a pale pink blush will complement those with more of an alabaster complexion.
The Maltings came out trumps for me on my quest for nude perfection. Kurt Geiger have some stunning options on offer, but they are not for the fainthearted or high heel challenged. Delicate and feminine, with soft bows, bold platforms, in satin, suede and patent leather. Divine.
Office had a huge variety of styles on offer, from more casual suede wedges, to a beautiful glossy patent pair that is almost a perfect high street replica of the Jimmy Choo classic version that sparked this whole flesh tone craze in the first place.
For more high street bargain buys, New Look once again did not disappoint. It had a huge collection on offer, sharing similar styles to the stores above but all under £30.00. The suede peeptoe platforms were my favourite.
It’s simply a bare necessity.
