Stepping Out In the Nude: Classic Pumps

July 30, 2015

A girl cannot live in flats alone. She. Just. Can’t. Victoria Beckham, undisputed queen of sexy sky-high heels, said it best:

“I can’t concentrate in flats.”

High heels are a MUST for every closet! In SuthinGirl’s ongoing series, Stepping Out In the Nude, we’re uncovering an essential collection of Ballet Flats, Classic Pumps, Peep Toe & d’Orsay Pumps and Sandals…all featured in the nude!

Today we’re celebrating the Classic Nude Pump! Pumps are some of the hardest workers in your shoe wardrobe! They pair beautifully with everything in your closet from skinny jeans to dresses. Invest in a quality pair in your skin tone that you love, and you’ll never have to wonder what to wear with anything you own. You’ll always have at least one option!

While on vacay in Prague last spring, I took this photo of a mural hanging in the lobby of Frank Gehry’s famous Dancing House building. At the tippy top of this uniquely shaped skyscraper sits Ginger & Fred, a fab restaurant and bar filled with fun, edgy artwork.

What’s not to love about a nude shoes? They magically lengthen the appearance of your legs. Oooh! They can be worn year round! Ahhh! They go with everything. Ohhh! In a nutshell, nude shoes are essential and should be kept front and center in your closet at all times!

Just ask nude pump fanatic Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge! Nobody is photographed wearing their nude pumps more than that gorgeous girl!

SuthinGirl owns over a dozen different pairs of fabulous nude shoes!

Here are my fave classic pumps…

For SuthinGirl, that’s basically the lightest bisque, blush or beige you can find. For my girlfriends with tantalizing tans or beautiful brown skin, we’re talking deeper shades.

A nude shoe is not boring! Leopard, cork, metallics, and a variety of textures like suede and skins can be worn as nudes when they complement your skin tone!

(Promise Me Next Time We’ll Talk About: Stepping Out In the Nude:  Peep Toe & d’Orsay Pumps!)


If you’re fair skinned and searching for the perfect nude, you’ll love this pointy toe pump! This one in patent is so pretty, too. This one is “spot on” and shows a ton of personality while still serving your nude shoe needs. SuthinGirl would love to splash out on this one (see the deep iris color too–amazing!). Looking for a metallic toned nude? This is a fab pump and ON SALE! I love love leopard and would pair this one with my skinny jeans this fall.

For girls with a golden tan, it doesn’t get any more luxe than this! Get the same feel for a lot less with this patent pump. If you’re looking for something with a touch more character, you’ll love this one with its pretty perforated leather design and it’s ON SALE! Spent a lot of time in the sun this summer? This one is a richer shade and has a sexy platform, and this one has an elegant tortoise heel detail that I love and is ON SALE!

Lovely deeper shades of nude include this pretty pump in rich suede and this pointy toe metallic pump in ‘eggplant’ is to die for! If you really want to splurge, there’s no better choice than this gorgeous pump! For the look of snakeskin without the price, this embossed leather shoe is killer. Another luxury choice is this one in ‘deep berry’ with its pointy toe and 4″ heel. I have it in the lighter nude and it’s really comfortable and such a classic. I love this shoe for the colorful detail and block heel, and it’s ON SALE!


OMG Miranda Kerr is killing it in her nude pumps! I love this look! Flawless!!!
