Celebrities are often the start of fashion trends, and some of them are easier than others (see: the celebrity choker trend), but one of the hardest ones to interpret that just keeps on showing up is the trend of dressing the same color as your skin. It’s not a one-size-fits-all process (you’re not a one-size-fits-all kind of gal!), and it’s hard to pinpoint what might work best for you and the look you are going for. But recently, two of the hottest actresses of the moment totally nailed this tricky trend.
Brooklyn actress Saoirse Ronan has been seen wearing lots of dresses close to her skin tone’s shade recently, and it’s totally working for her. Recently, the Irish actress hit the red carpet in a blush pink gown that set off her glowing, English rose-esque makeup perfectly.
Laverne Cox has also been slaying it lately on her OITNB press appearances. She rocked this regal number at a recent awards show. Perfectly toned, this nude dress with a center split is daring and full of drama. Paired with metallic gold heels and earrings, her entire look is on point.
If you’re wondering how to pull off such a difficult look, start by experimenting. There’s no right or wrong here. Try on several different shades and see which one you like best. Know that having the confidence to shine through such a bold wardrobe choice is a huge part of it, and armed with that knowledge, knock ‘em dead!
