Whitney Port on How to Wear Nude Colors

Do you dare to go bare? We're not talking a full-on skin show here -- just some pretty flesh-toned fashions. The new neutral is most definitely nude.
"It's more daring than your basic neutral and you can play around with the illusion of being naked which is on trend for spring -- the lingerie look as outerwear as done by Dior and Stella McCartney is so cutting edge," Whitney Port says.
Here's some advice on how to look nice -- not naked -- in the latest flesh-colored fashions:
Skin tone tips:
"I think anyone can wear it, it just depends on the shade," Port says. "Light complexions should look for more of a rosey, pinky shade, where as darker tones can go more taupe."
Fabrics to try:
"Chiffons for tops and dresses, wools for jackets, knit jerseys for shirts and easy dresses are great," Port says.
Colors to pair nudes with:
"Black is always an easy go-to to pair it with," Port says. "Jewel tones are also pretty -- it kind of parallels the idea of jewels on bare skin."
