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?

  6. 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!

  9. It's so funny how this combo used to be completely taboo and now it's the norm. I love wearing my brown boots with black leggings!
