Is taupe the new nude?
Nude heels were big news for 2011 and fast became somewhat of a style staple for women looking for a neutral shoe to match any outfit.
Now it's 2012 nude shades remain popular, but the tones have diversified a little, branching out into rose-tinted hues, creamy camel colours and taupes.
Taupe offers a darker nude, helping to contrast against your legs, rather than simply blending in and acting as a background for the rest of your look.
The Bailey Platform in dark taupe is a great example of a heel which fits the trend, yet stands out from the shoe rack.
It comes with a stylish block-heel, creating the ultimate silhouette for spring-summer fashion.
The rounded block-heel is a strong design sure to suit any leg shape and has been balanced with an angled platform, to combine both comfort and feminine style.
These shoes have been fashioned out of glossy patent leather and come with a looped peep-toe front and ankle strap detail, for that added touch of glamour.
Whether worn in the office or for an al fresco lunch date, these shoes eschew tip top sophistication and deserve to be well accessorised.
While taupe goes with any colour, it can't hurt to coordinate the patent gloss leather with a matching bag.
The Juniper Bag comes in a slightly lighter shade of taupe and offers a sleek, structured shape and brilliant craftsmanship, with its internal pockets and compartments.
This chic city carry-all is the ultimate in luxury accessories, with its satin inner lining, buckle and silver metallic chain details offering high quality finishing touches.
Why not even mix and match your taupe shades to create a multi-tonal effect?
