Mixing browns and blacks in one look used to seem like such a faux pas, kinda like wearing white jeans after labor day…but since I started breaking the white after labor day rule I haven’t been ale to stop messing with other fashion rules. I think mixing brown and black can be so CHIC in a look especially when transitioning into fall.
So this may sounds weird but I don’t like ALL shades of brown- I think the trick to keeping a look classic and put together is sticking to camel and nude shades of brown.
This look I did both a nude and camel mixed with just my classic black outfit- I did the browns as a pop of color with my accessories- I think it keeps it simple but more standout then your typical ALL black look.
Lately, I have REALLY been focusing on creating a handful of looks that I can just have on deck for when I don’t know what to wear or just need something chic that can be worn a million times and I know I feel great in…this is one of those looks you should always have at the front of your closet ready to go for those type of days!
Shop This Classic Look:
This cute long sleeve is under $50 and the comfiest thing ever! Plus, I love love love the ruffle sleeve detail. I am wearing a size small for sizing 🙂
And these Rag and Bone pants are seriously my favorite DENIM in my closet right now- the perfect high waist, and the fringe bottom is adorable- these are a size 25- their back jeans I go down a size in.
And my shoes, are the classic Stuart Weitzman nudist sandal and I wear them with EVERYTHING!
I wasn’t able to link my Hermes belt but this is the EXACT one I have and as you can tell from all my recent posts I wear it ALL the time. If you have any questions on sizing or would like to see a post on this belt– message me!
Sometimes the best outfits are the ones that break a few rules and take you out of your comfort zone; whether that is mixing color combos or adding a metallic or a different lipstick I can’t encourage you enough to just TRY IT.
This is just one way you can mix browns and blacks into ONE outfit while still looking chic. Try mixing camels and nudes into your classic black looks for a little mix up- I think you may surprised by how much you like it 🙂
