OOTD: Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground

I LOVE brown and nude in fashion. Many people think that brown is an ugly color, or at best a boring color. I disagree! I think that camel, warm mahogany, chocolate brown, espresso brown and many other shades of brown are gorgeous, and can be really pretty when worn.

I love wearing nude dresses because I feel like the shade really enhances the body. The same way that wearing nude flats or heels makes your legs look like they go on forever, I find that wearing nude makes me feel taller and thinner.

This nude / camel long-sleeved wrap dress is from Forever 21. I also have it in maroon, as well as white floral and black floral. The fit is just so flattering that I would buy it in other colors and prints too, if they had it!

I played up the brown factor with these brown strappy wedges from Payless. As the weather gets colder, I’m swapping these out for brown suede western ankle booties, and brown stiletto ankle booties.

To emphasize the “nature” look of brown, I went for leaves in my jewelry. This long gold leaf necklace is from Forever 21. Long necklaces are another useful item that can help you elongate your body (or, at least, look like you’ve elongated your body).

This gold criss-cross ring is also from Forever 21.
