The “Nude Trend” has arrived as seen in this seasons fashion line up. Mat shades of various neutrals are flaunting the runways. I can see why this look is so popular as these outfits and shades are timeless. Texture has been invading fabrics for several years in fashion yet has also been strong in home decor in fabrics, pillows and bedding. This was a natural off shoot from the fashion world as trends often start in fashion but the two worlds are colliding closer and closer together each year. The beauty of this nude look is the natural essence of it all while at the same time countering the bling phenomenon.
This years neutrals are softer, more feminine and are full of ruffles, crinkles and sheer looks that grace many collections. Donna Karan is one designer featuring these feminine looks in her ready to wear collection for 2011. She has the perfect touch as her styles are new, light, airy and stylishly elegant. We chose the Cairo Necklace to finish off her ensembles as this necklace is created with mat gold beads with the injection of colored agate and crystals scattered throughout the layers, bringing color into play but only on a subtle level. This 30 strand mat gold necklace with a silk loop and button clasp is a perfect accent to any of the nude spring looks this year.
