The beauty of brown, with its earthy base, is an amazing and versatile colour. Ranging from dark rich chocolate, foamy latte, sweet caramel, fragrant coffee beans to warm honey. Classic and sophisticated, a perfect replacement for the timeless and elegant black.

The past season as well as the current season we are seeing deep brown on fringed jackets, rich caramel on wool coats, and hints of the colour mixed into ensembles, with accessories like leather bags and shoes. Wearing brown skilfully means that you can take your everyday pieces and making them feel a little bit more luxe and unexpected.

If black is you daily go to colour, then switching to brown can be a bit intimidating, but shades of brown like tan and beige can be fun to wear and perfect for any season.

If you rather stick to black and play it safe, you can still incorporating brown into your look with accessories in tan or light brown.

Black

This is probably one of those colour combo’s that might be a big no-no, as it is both such intense colours but the sophistication of both these colours together creates a really chic look.

Wearing it head to toe

As with black and white, tan and camel are colour tones that looks great when worn from head to toe but if you are a bit on the fair skin side you should avoid wearing beige, and for medium skin tones its best to avoid lighter browns, as these shades will make you look washed out.
