To Try: Brown and Black

Many people think you can't wear brown and black together, but as seen here, you absolutely can.

1.   2.   3.

helpful hints:
  • mix it up with a couple of items in each color, having only one item in black or brown might look out of place
  • keep the browns similar in shade as well as the blacks
  • if you want more of a contrast do a lighter more caramel brown, if you want something more subtle do a chocolate brown color
  • don't be afraid to try a pattern
