Dear Shopping Savage...

Dear Shopping Savage,

I'm noticing a trend of women wearing nude pumps. Are they a solid investment or just a fad?


Nude Heels Hot or Not


Dear N.H.H.O.N.,

Consider nude pumps to be the equivalent to black pumps. In that vein, nude or camel heels are more than just a solid investment: they should be considered a footwear staple. As of late, they are being manufactured in a multitude of nude hues, materials and textures so you can base the pair you purchase on your skin tone or find a traditional camel colored pair that are just as appealing. With either option, you're guaranteed a leg-lengthening silhouette stemming from a shoe that manages to coordinate with just about everything in your closet.

For fall and winter, a closed-toe pump or boot would work best to combat the elements and still guarantee you the same desired leg-lengthening-can-be-paired-with-just-about-everything appeal. Nude pumps would transition well into spring, but for summer if you are still in the mood to go nude, try finding a pair of strappy sandals that will elongate your leg but allow your toes - and pedicure - the much needed reprieve from close-toed footwear.

These additional tips are great footwear food for thought if you're still having doubts about the power of the nude heel. But trust in that you truly can't go wrong with a shoe that even though they're considered nude, reveal nothing but your gams potential to be considered for fashion's R Rating. The R is for Ravishing which means your look may contain strong sexy legs, adult language expressed by onlookers and of course, brief nudity...of the shoe. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
