The Stella McCartney F/W 2010 collection is absolutely gorgeous. It is the usual minimalistic with an edge, and totally wearable. However the use of nudes in this collection are particularly inspiring. 

Simple, sheer and sleek.
The 'nudity' is just right, not over the top but just enough to score. The use of sequins and browns is brilliant to decorate and tone down the nudes, cherry on the top. 

Nude not an easy colour to wear. However if it is worn correctly, the whole look would be upgraded instantly, spelling classy and fabulous. 

Tips for wearing nudes: 
  1. There are so many different shades of nude, not every single shade is flattering for everyone. Lighter shades of nudes or those with hints of pink would be safe.
  2. Not every body shape is suitable for nudes. Try simpler pieces like a tank or tee shirt. 
Outfit 1: Work  
Top - T by Alexander Wang, Pants - Acne, Sandal - Elizabeth and James, Clutch - Alexander Wang, Necklace & earring set - Corinda's, Dragon Fly Ring - Lucky Brand, Leaf Ring - Yunus and Eliza

This is a more formal outfit accesorized with chucky rings and necklaces (love chunky, can never go wrong with chunky). The top is black and midriff bearing to emphasis on the nude pants and adds a carelessly sexy touch.

Outfit 2: Holiday
Top - Miss Selfridge, Denim shorts - True Religion, Thong sandals - Tory Burch, Bangles - Cara Accessories, Earrings - Yang 23 Vintage, Cashmere scarf - Faliero Sarti, Satchel - Proenza Schouler

A holiday look is completed with a loose nude top, cut out shorts, flip flops and cashmere (a travel must). A touch of glamour is added with the PS1 satchel and vintage earrings.

Outfit 3: Going out

Tank - DVF, Leggings - any cotton leggings to the ankle would do, Booty - Hypnotic, Duffle bag - Asos, Bracelet set - Kirra, Ring - Avalaya, Drink me necklace - Start London

The nude tank and leggings are perfect for going out. The Balmain look-a-like booties adds an edge to the whole outfit. Adding the finishing touches of accessories then off you go!
