Here's the nudes..ditch your LBD and go neutral.

FEW of us are brave enough to flaunt our birthday suits in public but there's no need to be bashful about the fashion world's take on the nude trend.

From blush pinks to creamy caramels, there's a shade to show offevery skin tone this season - no nudity involved.

Pale and interesting made its mark on the catwalks at Givenchy, Herve Leger and Jasper Conran. And when LBD aficionado Jennifer Aniston swapped her trademark black for Donna Karan blush on the Bounty Hunter red carpet, she showed exactly how nude can be a knockout.

SOFT + SWEET Embrace your feminine side and give nudes a romantic nod with ruffles, frills and babydoll styles.

Draped Grecian dresses in short or long lengths are one of the most flattering ways to wear pretty peachy shades.

Look for super-soft jerseys for a daytime look and turn to sheer chiffons or organza for evening elegance. Up the glam factor with luxe embellished detailing.

STRONG + STRUCTURED The nude look doesn't have to be all sweetness and light.

If you are anti-girly, opt for nudes in no-nonsense slouchy suiting, as seen at Etro and Topshop Unique. A blazer or jacket and cropped trousers in softest rose pink are versatile enough for holiday and workwear wardrobes.

Make a killer statement with a lean, mean silhouette. Take your inspiration from Herve Leger and work body-con nudes like a second skin - best reserved for those who live in the gym.

NEED MORE NUDE? Every girl needs nude accessories in her life. No need to play matchy matchy with your ensemble, neutral bags and shoes will go with just about any colour.

A big favourite on the red carpet, nude shoes are a secret weapon for creating the illusion of longer legs, making them a must-have accessory for emphasising sun-kissed pins.

Nude doesn't have to be bland - create drama by mixing neutral-tone jewellery and accessories with your nude outfit.
