LOOK!: GO NUDE IN SUMMER; Susan Lee says natural flesh tones are perfect for the sun.

Byline: Susan Lee

It's time to go natural this summer. With the sun shining and the temperatures on the rise some of the most flattering colours to wear come in shades of pale pink,peach and coral.

They'reincredibly flattering,are perfect for showing off a tan and add a hint of sexy elegance to any outfit.

But just like like make-up, the natural look needs a lot of thought and you have to pick the right nude or flesh- tone for your colouring.

After all, you only want to give the illusion that you are wearing next to nothing -not look as if you are really naked.

A good way of achieving the look is to wear your underwear as outerwear, for example a camisole top under a jacket or bright shirt.

It's the perfect way to tone down this season's bright citrus shades and you can add a touch of sparkle using a sequinned camisole teamed with denim.

If you prefer dresses,keep the cut simple,and access orise with a bright cardigan or bag or statement jewellery.

Or just opt for a hint of the look with a ribbed vest in soft tones teamed with this season's white pants or a prom skirt teamed with the cutest ballet pumps. With plenty of different flesh tones, you're bound to find something that will suit but pale skins should stick to dusky and very light pinks.

Those with olive skins or a tan can get away with wearing lighter shades,as well as being more adventurous with bold coral,peachy and golden hues.

It's one of the hottest looks this summer -nude, natural and very, very nice. NATURAL LOOK: Capri denim trousers, pounds 20,lace trim halter neck top, pounds 22 and gingham peep toe shoes, pounds 45 from TopShop
