Anatomy of an Outfit: Lyndsy Fonseca Rocks Nude Hues

This screenshot is from earlier in the season, but Oscar night got us thinking about glam-wear, and the fact that spring is just around the corner. Soon, skin-baring styles will be upon us!

Nikita’s lovely Lyndsy Fonseca looks fantastic here in a nude tone corset-inspired number. This dress is great for spring, but is totally appropriate for winter events as well, so long as you have a heavyweight coat to toss on. Lots of times fair-skinned girls think they can’t pull off nude tones; we are here to tell you that Yes, You Can! The trick is to make sure that you keep accessories to a minimum to avoid looking like a naked lady who tried to cover up with jewelery and scarves. Accessories should be few in number but pack a real punch.

We think Lyndsy would look great with a heel that echoes the tones and shape-conscious nature of her dress. Things are still pretty muted, so dial up the dimensions of the look with some bright red lipstick and a brightly colored clutch. Here’s how to steal Lyndsy’s look for all seasons:

1. Begin with a nude strapless dress with a lot of corset-like structural detail. This one from Dorothy Perkins is both cute and budget friendly! Rise cream corset dress, $24.40

2. Stretch out those gams by strapping on some sandals with a nude tone and a subtle hint of lavender. Ilona Heels, $328

3. Add a bold pop of color with a suede purse in a bright teal shade. Suede Envelope Clutch $80

4. Finally, a bold red lip will draw attention to your face and keep the nude tones from washing you out. Manic Panic Lipstick in Marilyn, $15
