Fashionista NOW: Shades Of Brown Fashion Inspiration

Brown is the coziest shade out of all the colors and you should by now realize that the dated fashion rule that says NO to the pairing of brown and black is a whole lot of bunkum. Ready to learn how you can sport brown with other neutrals?

With the understanding that brown comes in a variety of shades, you should be able to pair it with any other neutral shades without committing any serious fashion crime.

On to the brown-themed looks and fashion tips, right after the jump:

long knit cardigan – D’loops | leather tote – Flashy | vintage boots

I love how earthy and whimsical this look is. There are various shades of brown here; from deep espresso to the lightest camel shade. And look, they all go well with the earthy orange shorts.

The dual tone bag in black and brown is fantastic enough to be worn on its own while keeping your outfit in say, black and white IF you prefer to accent with brown instead.

camel chiffon blouse with faux leather collar – SheInside | wedges – Matiko Shoes

Check out the great teaming of camel brown and black blouse with a pair of deep forest green shorts. With the beige/nude wedge footwear staying closest to Adriana’s skin color, it helps to elongate her legs and give the whole look a tied together vibe.

Gold jewelry complements this brown-themed outfit.

sweater – H&M | camel suede shoes

Black, brown and denim blue. These three can be worked into any outfit style. Natalie gives a tough preppy spin to this all-round neutral combo of colors. A bright shade of red on her lips and a silver choker worn under the collars lend a soft ladylike touch to this boyish ensemble.

sweater – Bershka | bag – Massimo Dutti | boots – Suiteblanco

Brown and light denim blue pairing is tougher to sport as the striking contrast of brown footwear’s against the light blue pants can visually-segment the torso.

Although long-legged wearers can make this contrasting pairing wearable, it certainly can be harsh looking on someone with shorter legs.

If you are particularly conscious about your legs and want them to always look longer, it’s best to pair trousers in a brown shade that’s closer to the the boots’ tone and slip into a light blue blouse instead.

See how you can switch it up and still maintain the same color combination in a single outfit? Not too hard, eh?

cape – Zara

This mysterious brown and black themed look is one of my favorite Autumn outfit style.

It exudes effortless rustic elegance that I find most easy on the eyes and is very complimentary to the season of brown, dried and rumpled leaves.

The bottom half is all black with a tease of golden brown sparkling from the shoes. The upper half showcases this covetable cape worn over a cashmere sweater all in shades of brown that perfectly blends with the black gloves, shorts and tights.

blouse – Forever 21 | vintage belt

This outfit’s casual appeal is more suited for those in the tropical regions. It’s all brown from head to toe and it looks playful and laid-back. The statement top in black tribal print adds just enough interest to this look.

skirt – American Apparel | wedge ankle boots – Urban Outfitters

Another look that’s Fall-appropriate is the pairing of a deep brown A-line skirt with a button-down silk blouse in dusty pink/peach. Slip into dual tone ankle booties to finish.

bag – H&M | brogues – Zara

Accent your neutral black and white outfit with a classic brown bag and eternally-awesome brown brogues.

Now be really honest and tell me if you think that all of these brown-centered outfits are just a fashion mistake.

What do you have to say about the ancient black and brown fashion rule? Do you still abide by it or have you happily chucked it aside? To the comments, with all your marvelous thoughts!
