    Both mean wearing no clothes at all. – StoneyB on hiatus Feb 19 '18 at 14:34
  • You could use undressed, although this is ambiguous since it could also mean naked. The phrase scantily clad might be what you are looking for. – Lee Leon Feb 19 '18 at 14:56
  • "Naked" is used more widely in metaphor, and in limited contexts such as: he displayed naked aggression or with naked arms he snatched the object from the flames. "Nude" is normally only used to describe a human being with absolutely no clothes" - it also has stronger artistic and sexual connotations. – WS2 Feb 19 '18 at 22:14
