Flesh-toned hues, from deep beige to peachy pink, are being touted as the new black — especially for footwear. Flattering, versatile and subdued (yet sexy), nude shoes are destined for the same classic status as oversize sunglasses and sheath dresses. If you have any doubts, slip on a pair and watch your pins transform into gams that go on for miles.


*Don’t worry, this wear-with-anything look won’t turn into one of those “what was I thinking?” fads later. So, go ahead, invest in a quality pair, like these Louboutins, that you’ll wear for years to come.
