My Take on Black and Brown......

I have a confession to make. I used to really, really, dislike when I saw outfits that combined the colors black and brown.  After being glued to the TV watching episodes of House of Style and Fashion TV back in the day and all I knew was that it was a big no no, and that stuck with me for quite sometime.  Since then I have come into my own when it comes to my personal style and more and more this color combo has grown on me.  I saw the below image today and its the perfect execution of these 2 colors.  The white stripe lightens up the black and the burnt caramel fringe bag adds some interest to the outfit, so lovely.  I hope you all had a great week and for those of you that have one, enjoy an even better long weekend.

  2. I agree...it was always fixed in my mind NOT to combine these two colours but last year I saw so many great outfits that used black and brown together...style is what you make it ♥

  3. The caramel in your pic pairs perfectly with black and white - I think the darker the brown, the trickier it is.

  4. I feel the same way- but I know have grown to love black and brown together! I love the picture you posted, as she pulls it off perfectly esp. with the gold as another neutral to tie it all together :)
