Who Went Nude at the Royal Wedding?
Just like countless others around the world, I’ve spent a fair amount of time this morning on the royal wedding. What can I say; I’m a sucker for romance. Whether it’s wishful thinking or simply the truth, I really feel like William & Kate look very happy and very much in love. Their relationship seems ‘real,’ for lack of a better word. And wasn’t their customary balcony appearance too cute?! Her poise and confidence will come in handy as she steps into one of the most visible roles in the world.
Another perk of their wedding is the chance to see royals and European celebrities out in all their fashionable glory. As I was clicking through photos of wedding arrivals on People.com, it became very obvious that many female attendees were on the same page when it came to footwear. Nude heels were everywhere! Camilla, Queen Elizabeth, Princess Letizia, Carole Middleton, Charlene Wittstock (future Princess of Monaco) & Chelsy Davis were just a few of the guests showcasing this shoe style on their way into the royal wedding.
This is a trend that I can really get onboard with. Not only does the look help to elongate your legs, but it’s pretty hard to mess up. ‘Nude’ is actually a bit of a catchall term. It can refer to light beiges, grays, pinks, etc. With so many options, it’s pretty simple to find a shade to coordinate with just about any outfit. It’s the perfect shoe choice for something more elegant like a wedding, but works just as well with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a night on the town with friends.
If you’re ready to take the plunge and score a pair of nude shoes for yourself, I’ve got some great (and affordable) options for you. If you really want to go for added height, check out the Luichiny Loud Lee Pump or the Steve Madden Vallli Sandal. Built in platforms will make the sky-high heels a lot more manageable. If wedges are more your style, I like the Fergalicious Goddess Pump. The flower applique is the perfect spring accent. Want to sparkle? Check out the Chinese Laundry Hot Hot Pump. And just because I love it – the Fergie Sanibel Sandal. A pair of shoes I hope to make mine in the very near future.
