I hope that the title of this post does not attract the wrong sort of traffic. By nude I mean the colour nude - I can't think of anything else to describe that sort of nondescript neutral, taupe, light tan colour. I have observed a number of combinations of this nude and various different oranges. I think this looks best when there is a fairly small amount of very bright orange, perhaps an accessory in satin or patent leather. I also think that nude clothes should have some texture eg frills, pleats, ruffles - nothing too clingy as it can look as if you are in the nude!

Here are some of my favourite orange and nudes:
Ted Baker Bag

Steve Madden 'Blake' Court Shoes

Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks




Limited Collection Paisley Scarf


Intarsia Jumper
