Color Crush: Brown & Black

Someone once said that brown and black do not mix. Personally I think that's an old fashion rule... brown and black do mix well together. 


My favorite ways for mixing brown and black
• Go lighter. It's easy to pull off a black and brown outfit when you utilize shades of nude, taupe or camel. This creates a gorgeous contrast.
• Pair black tights with brown boots for a simple and gorgeous look.
• Chocolate and black look great together when you pair a chocolate jacket with a black top or dress. 

What are your tips for a black and brown outfit?

  14. I've heard it is okay to wear black top with brown bottoms but you can't wear a brown top with black bottoms. I think going lighter is an exception to the rule. You posted some great options!
