We chat so often on Instagramabout how we all wear a variation of the same clothes over and over but here at This Is Mothership HQ (Gemma’s couch…) we wanted to show you that it’s really easy to branch out of your comfort zone and try something a little different. This week we’re showing you a really simple, effortless way of stepping away from the head to toe black and introducing something new to your wardrobe: Nude and Neutrals. I know what you’re thinking, "neutral colours don’t suit me!" But have you actually tried them?! There is a shade out there to suit every single skin and hair tone, and if you’re worried that it’ll make you look too pasty then wear it on your bottom half, away from your skin, like I have. There is only one rule to stick to here: don’t go for a shade that’s a direct match to your skin colour, always opt for a tone that is two shades darker or lighter.
I normally LOVE a neutral but I’m still working out exactly what suits my new hair as it’s changed the tone of my face, so for the moment I’m sticking with THESEnude trousers. I love, love, love these ruffles and if your body shape is straight/athletic like mine then these trousers are great for faking curves and shape. Whereas I love how THISjumper looks on Sam, it gives some added warmth to her skin tone, plus it’s so easy to wear a print with, like her boots here which make the outfit a bit more special.
I’ve put a selection below, and most are from websites that offer free shipping so try it out, you may surprise yourself and really like it! As always, if this trend really, really scares you then keep it really subtle and go for an accessory, or a shoe. And one of the best fashion tricks around is that nude heels will elongate your legs in a way that nothing else can!
