While summer weather is all about wearing bright colors, we are slowly transitioning into fall. That of course, means that we like to change up our color palette. Shades of nude are an understated way of making a big fashion statement. Ulla Johnson's Pre-Fall '17 collection is filled with dresses that work for a range of summer events. Cut from weightless silk crepe de chine, this printed 'Imogen' style is decorated with multi nude dots, a bow at the one-shoulder neckline and cascading ruffles along the skirt. Nude sandals are obviously a must here, but a pair with some extra pizzazz helps to keep our look from being drab. Christian Louboutin's 'Malefissima' sandals have been expertly made in Italy from smooth matte leather. Underpinned by the label's signature red sole, this vertiginous shoe has crossover straps that frame and support while lengthening the leg.

We kept our accessories muted, yet still eye-catching, by bringing out the different tones in our lovely dress.

The Edie Parker 'Lara' clutch features a creamy, pearlescent hue with signature ice ends, making for one 'cool' piece of arm candy.  For jewelry, drop-down earrings by Suzanna Dai feature silk cord-wrapped gumballs in alternating hues of pretty blush and gleaming gold metallic. When it comes to makeup, it is all about keeping things in the neutral family. Clinique's 'All About Shadow' eye quad in 'Teddy Bear' is a variety of softer shades with just enough color to make your eyes 'pop'! Since we are always down for a nude lip, what better ensemble to use one on? Dose of Color's lip gloss is a high shine, high pigment formula which goes beautifully on top of lipstick, or on its own. 'Undressed' is one of those nudes that every woman will want to add to her collection. Whether your next event is indoors or out, in this outfit you will be serving 'Nude Attitude' at every turn.
