I think it’s safe to say that every fashionista has heard about “The Black & Brown Rule”.
Well, here’s the deal. The rule, like many other ridiculous fashion rules, can be thrown out the window if executed correctly.
If you’re trying to wear black and brown together, it’s most likely because the specific shades of those colors do in fact look good together. In my case, I chose a light brown purse with a dark black heel.
Another great tip to remember is subtlety. Adding white can help create a distraction to the “clashing” colors. The black in my outfit is less severe not only because of my black and white striped dress, but also because there is a dress lending space between the main black and brown pieces.
Another great distraction is adding a completely different colored jacket to the look. I chose a jean jacket to keep the dress more casual.
If you have an active day and still want to wear this outfit, try these shoes.
