The Problem With 'Nude' Fashion

The colour nude is having a style resurgence, but what does "nude" really mean?

Until recently the shade was synonymous with "white skin", but some companies are taking a stand and creating new nude ranges to match a wider diversity of skin tones (like Nubian Skin's amazing lingerie).

Clearly not every brand is as fashion forward, as Buzzfeed discovered when they asked four black women to try on nude-coloured items of clothing and makeup in this powerful video.

"Nude is not an option for black women," says one of the video's stars. But it should be, and we're hoping this is the start of more change in the industry.
