50 women from different walks of life showcase the many shades of nude


Call it fashion’s ‘you can sit with us’ moment or the antidote to statement, Insta-bait fashion, but women world over are taking refuge in the normalcy of nude. Beige for spring/summer 2019, in all its permutations and combinations—leather, latex, ruched, sequinned and quilted—has a taker in each of us. The new nude covers more neutral ground, too. Spanning coffee, caramel, ecru, ivory, flesh and blush, the pared-back palette is as versatile as its wearer. Tiers of tassels on an octogenarian, fawn layers for a fuller figure, modest hemlines and necklines for the conservative dresser—it’s an adapt-and-abide kind of colour.

Vogue photographed 50 women from all over India to throw light on the myriad of shades nude can encompass, showcasing diversity at its finest. Scroll ahead to take a look.
