Fortunately, we come in a range of different colours. Just think how boring the world would be if we all looked just the same! Diversity in society is, of course, something to be glad about and something that the fashion industry is often keen to celebrate. Unfortunately, all too often, lazy fashion writers end up talking about 'nude' as though it were just one peachy off-white shade! What is that all about? It is time to remind fashionistas, reporters and designers everywhere that 'nude' is not just one colour. 

 

We all come in different shades of Birthday suit and the nude clothing, footwear or accessories we can choose should allow us to match with our own skin tone – not just one arbitrary one. If, for example, we want to extend the appearance of our legs by wearing nude shoes or boots, it should be easier for us all to find a colour that more closely approximates the colour of our bare skin.

 

Fortunately, for the most part things are moving in the right direction when it comes to diversity in the fashion industry. This year's London fashion week was the most diverse ever, though still only 25% of the models used in the runway shows were non-white. Brands such as Christian Louboutin and Nubian Skin are opening a dialogue about that word 'nude' and the assumptions that are often made. 

 

Now, A blogger from the UK is making headlines with a range of hijabs in a range of different skin tones. The popularity of the lines show that there is much demand for 'nude' clothing that is able to reflect at least some of the diversity of skin tone we see every day in the real world. There is no need to stick to a colour close to your own skin tone but you should have the choice to do so if you wish. 

 

Nude tights, dresses, shoes and accessories could all be handy and flattering in a range of different situations so why should we all have to compromise on some artificial mid-tone when most people's true 'nude' shade is nowhere near that tone or colour? Fashion is beginning to cater for diversity, but things still have quite a long way to go before we can all choose the perfect nude shade for us. Whatever your skin tone and colour, demand that you are recognised and never let anyone forget that 'nude' is not just one colour!
