Style Me Monday: Must Have Item - Nude Pumps

Okay I admit - I'm obsessed! From Red Carpet to Royalty nude pumps (think of Catharine, Duchess of Cambridge and her now signature LK Bennett Nude Pumps) are the go to footwear this year. For me this is a no-brainer. Season after season, 2012 has brought us fabulous bold and rich colours in every item of clothing and accessories possible. With all of this colour, it's great to have a classic nude pump to anchor any outfit for any occasion. To demonstrate this I've put together 6 different outfits for different occasions.
Coloured Jeans - I love this look. I'm loving this trend of colour slim jeans and jeggings that gives the colour in a comfortable outfit that is just as at home at coffee with the girls, or a night at the movies.
Teal Day Dress - A great way to include colour for the office. A great fitted dress in a rich hue like this peacock tone is right at home in the office with a taupe and coral clutch, and classic nude pumps and minimal accessories.
Oxblood Fitted Blazer - Going into fall this outfit is fabulous! Whether running errands around town, headed back to class, catching up with friends, or a casual day at the office, this outfit capitalizes on the Oxblood trend surfacing for fall in the jacket with classic everyday items - dark denim, cream tank, dainty (but sparkly) studs, and nude pumps.
Black, Nude, and Lace - For a classy night out on the town you can pull together the classic little black dress with nude pumps and a touch of lace. Add a little sparkle with chandelier earrings and you're ready for a night of dinner, dancing, an art gallery opening, and whatever else may come your way.
Summer in the City - With the heat still upon us in many cities in North America, a shorts option is always important. I love this option with another set of great basics with a punch of colour in the structured jacket and clutch.
Royal Purple - This is one of my favourite outfits by far! I love the rich, royal feel of the purple dress with faux wrap details. By keeping the accessories elegant but neutral you keep the focus on your outfit while still showing off a polished, pulled together look.
Top Five things I love about Nude Pumps:
1. They can go from day to night with classic neutrals & pastels or today's bold colours
2. There is a style for everyone from peeptoes to pumps to ballet flats
3. With wide offerings you can find the right shade (with the right undertone) to flatter your skin tone
4. They lengthen the leg line (and who doesn't love looking like they have legs up to there!)
5. They're available in every price range
