After your wedding dress, your shoes are probably the next most important purchase for your big day look. But what do you want? High heels to elevate your aesthetic, chic and demure flats or something in-between? And what colour should you pick? There are so many variations that it’s hard to know where to start looking, but you can’t go wrong with nude wedding shoes.
While many brides opt for something in a white tone or perhaps for blue wedding shoes, nude wedding shoes are a super elegant alternative – and will look great with any style of gown. Even better, nude wedding shoes will look great with whatever colour wedding dress you select, be it white, ivory, champagne or something totally different, like a black wedding dress. They are totally versatile and are so easy to wear again and again as they will go with a huge range of styles thanks to their colour.
And speaking of colour, why exactly does nude mean? Strictly speaking, nude isn’t a colour, it’s all about matching something to your skin tone. For too long in the fashion world, nude has referred to a hue that matches a western-European skin tone. But, thankfully, the term nude is transitioning to refer to neutral; barely there whatever the skin tone. And while there aren’t as many options available for darker skin tones, things are changing and high street and designer brands are offering more variety.
One label that is making waves in nude shoes for everyone is Kahmune, which offers 10 different shades for every style of shoe. Founder Jamela Acheampong says: “It is my goal to ensure all women have nude products that celebrate the diversity of the human complexion.”
