Three gorgeous ways for Latinas to do neutrals

When we talk about neutrals – beige, ivory, cream, apricot and other soft colors – we are talking about one of the biggest trends for the spring and fall of 2013. Fashion runways showed these colors for their collections and we expect to see a lot more of it. We love this incredible palette because it’s easy to mix and match with a wide variety of pieces.

Neutrals are usually known as nude colors because they often resemble your own skin color. These colors work well on a lot of Latinas because they reflect the light gently on their skin and create a subtle sun touch.

The following are three techniques to wear neutrals this year. My recommendations are really easy! These key pieces will have you ready for the coming seasons; moreover, they are great additions to your standard wardrobe.

Try a nice sheer or silk blouse

A nice blouse made of a good material like silk helps you to achieve a formal and delicate appearance. They are great for the office and even for a wonderful girl’s night out. You practically can match it with every pair of pants or just with a black pencil skirt and Voila! You have your outfit ready.

Invest in nude heels

Nude classic heels are going to make your legs longer and every woman should own a pair of these. Not to mention, they match with everything! Invest in a good pair of nude heels and you will have trendy shoes for long time.

Neutrals in beauty products

Nude colors are important for beauty too; now you can buy products like nail polish in neutral colors. Make sure that the nail lacquer is high quality and in a color that perfectly pairs with your skin tone in order to get the effect of bare nails.

Your goal with this palette is to reach a look that is natural and fresh.  And the best thing about it that anyone can wear it as long as you select the right hue. I recommend wearing it the way high-end models do on the runway….with simple makeup. You can’t go wrong with a neutral outfit and makeup that matches!
