Nude was originally named after the Western-European centric Caucasian skin tone. It is close to beige in terms of being a pale shade of the mixture of brown and white.
The term nude has expanded not only in fashion, but also in society as it embraces diversity. While the outside world attempts to express its expansion, the use of nude in design continues to follow the original shade.
Neutrality is attributed to the color nude. Unsurprisingly, this same neutrality means it’s a perfect accent color for any other shade found in the color wheel.
