Finding the Perfect Shade of Nude Pumps Just Got a Whole Lot Easier
Ask any fashion editor the most important shoes a woman could have in her wardrobe and the answer will be the same: nude pumps. The timeless closet staple not only gives the illusion of slimmer, longer legs, it pairs brilliantly with everything in your closet, too. But much like concealer, the key is finding the right shade for your skin tone. Cue Christian Louboutin’s Nudes collection. Available at Bergdorf Goodman, the capsule collection consists of three styles in five shades, ranging from fair blush to rich chestnut. To show you just how versatile the pumps can be, three fashion editors—Jane Keltner de Valle, Nina Garcia, and Shiona Turini—put them to the test on the streets of NYC.

“There's something inherently sexy and suggestive about a nude shoe. It has a timeless allure. But beyond that, it's just incredibly flattering. It disappears on the foot, so it gives the illusion of mile long legs—and what woman wouldn't want that?! It's also incredibly versatile and works day to night, office to party, which is something Glamour readers are always looking for. Nude with black is classic. A tonal play on nude with whites and neutrals is super chic. I like that a nude heel is more unexpected than a black one, yet it doesn't ever feel like it's screaming for attention. Instead, it does exactly what every good wardrobe piece should do: turns the spotlight on the woman wearing it.”
