CelebStyle: Going Nude

BeyonceNude072215

Going head to toe in flesh tone can get a little tricky. You don’t want to look washed out, and you don’t want to look like a performance artist in Times Square. I think the trick is to use varying shades neutral tones, with the main outfit being a tone darker than your actual flesh. It’s also better to find a neutral tone that compliments your skin tone. Because Black women know that the term nude really doesn’t compliment us, so lets be a little more distinct.

The accessories around it should stay within the tonal range, but can be lighter, avoiding the matchy-matchy look. It can work!

I’m in love with color, as you’ve seen recently. And this fall candy-coated sweetness has spilled over to accessories. As the weather cools and color palates (pun intended) darken, be different and pick saturated booties and patent neon clutches for a bold and funky touch to your wardrobe. Get inspired.

Alex and Ani: Beautiful Beatitude

Consciousness isn’t usually the first thing that I associate with jewelry, for baubles have been– for the most part — associated with affluence and allure. However, after coming across a jewelry line that– in the words of founder and designer, Carolyn Rafaelian– creates a stronger sense of purpose through powerful, meaningful, and spiritual elements, I’ve come to see that glamour and awareness can successfully coexist in the form of Alex and Ani‘s jewelry and accessories:

amethyst and fuschia crystal Ocean Current earrings, $88


Smara five-drop wood necklace, $128


Shalya russian gold necklace, $148

Scorpio russian gold earrings, $98


Queen of the Highway beaded/ russian gold expendable bangles, $98
pink rose gold Vernal wonderwoman cuff, $78

pale amethyst dotted russian gold Standing on the Moon chain belt, $178 swarovski crystal vintage stone hair comb, $28

While the mix of downtown chic and uptown polish has caught the eye of such fashionistas as Mary J. Blige, its charity through in founding Project USA , an organization geared towards providing aid to those in need, showcase their willingness to put their ability to put their money where their mouth is.
