Sneakers are a necessary addition to any shoe collection. Most people would agree that while white sneakers are a wardrobe staple, if you are tired of the whitewashed aesthetic and want to try something new, look no further than nude and champagne shades.
Nude shades are sometimes referred to as beige or tan, while champagne shades lean towards pale tints of yellow-orange. These colours are well-loved by fashionistas for being very pretty and versatile ways to style any outfit.
These warm shades started becoming a huge fashion trend when nude heels made their way into many women’s shoe collections, and since then, they have been widely favoured in other types of shoes, especially casual sneakers.
