There’s no better feeling than feeling good in your own skin, a concept that our favorite angel Alessandra Ambrosio embraces in all elements of her life. The nude trend is hitting all categories, from makeup to wardrobe to accessories, and we love that the phenomenon pays homage to one’s natural beauty. If you haven’t already done so, try out the nude trend yourself with some helpful inspiration from our beloved Victoria’s Secret angel Ale.
Monochromatic? Check. Two-tone fabric? Check. Nude? Check! This street style outfit (worn by Alessandra in Boston last weekend) is hitting all the marks, proving that simply nude can make an effortless statement. We love the sophisticated yet sexy silhouette of the outfit, and how she mixed up different tones of nude that still looked cohesive. A head-to-toe look in nude is a bold style that’s sure to be a knockout.
Alessandra bares all in her recent shoot with Narcisse magazine, playing up the current trend into a full-blown editorial concept. The styling featured barely there makeup, fresh-out-the-shower hair, and see-through mesh pieces; minimalist in concept and execution, the spread beautifully showcased why the nude movement is so great. “Going nude” isn’t merely a loosely disguised attempt at sex appeal, but rather, an expression of vulnerability, and in that vulnerability, there is power and grace.
Another reason we love nude? It’s the perfect palette to show off that summer glow! Find a nude that just falls short of your natural skin tone, so that as your summer tan sets in, the piece will really pop against your body. We love the Carolina Romper in the Ale by Alessandra x Revolve collection; the stone hue will serve as a beautiful neutral on most skin tones and the easiness of the romper makes for great beach-wear when you’re working on that summer tan.
The Eduarda mini is another neutral favorite of ours from the Ale by Alessandra x Revolve collection. The creamy hue serves as a great alternative if nude feels too risque. We love how Alessandra styled hers at the Revolve Coachella party, with some sassy fringe stilettos and glimmering jewelry.
The newest addition to the nude trend has been the surge of nude swimwear – and we are loving every bit of it! Featured in her festival collection, the ale by alessandra High Neck Halter bikini gives us bohemian goddess vibes, with its crochet fabrication and its peekaboo decolletage.
Alessandra encaptures the bronzed beauty look in her ale by alessandra Maldives bikini. The shimmery copper fabric is the perfect shade to complement the golds, bronzes, and blushes of the season. The detailing gives the suit a special touch, featuring circle fasteners, pink tassel ties, and an embroidered T back.
A cover up is a must-have in every girl’s beach bag. The Free Spirit cold shoulder cover up is light-weight and looks great over any swim-suit! Ale does beach style better than anyone and we’re loving how she struts her stuff in the Praia hat and the Blue Skies Traditional Hand Loomed Tote.
As always, the easiest way to incorporate a trend into your wardrobe? Accessories! Try these cute neutral hats from the ale by Alessandra collection, great for pairing with any outfit and perfect for the summer heat.
Nude is also a great complement to any color palette! We love Alessandra rocking the dip-dyed Ale by Alessandra Tank dress; the turquoise color is a sweet hue for the beach, and the ombre into nude gives it a bohemian feel for a walk along the sand. Complete the look with some retro shades and a woven beach bag like the Tangier Crossbody. The durable material is great to keep sand out of your belongings, and the colorful tassels are a fun accent!
