For years wearing black and brown has been one of the worst fashion sins that a girl could commit. But now-a-days it’s so wrong that it’s actually right.  As it turns out some fashion rules are meant to be broken and this happens to be one of them.  Since black and brown are both neutral colors they can go with almost anything, including each other. So this fall season we recommend you take a fashion risk and break the rules a little bit. Combining black and brown is not only very chic but it’s also flatter on the body, so what’s not to like.

For a casual day time look, channel Anne Hathaway and pair dark boot cut jeans with a black turtle neck and brown leather jacket, this look is great for fall. For a summer day look, try pairing a black cotton mini dress with a thin brown belt to chinch your waist line. To finish off your casual summer look add nude gladiator sandals. For an evening appropriate black and brown combination try a brown leather skirt with a black bow blouse, complete this look with black ankle boots and you’re sure to look fantastic.

Try The Trend Tips

Ready to throw caution to the wind, and slip into a black and brown ensemble, here are a few tips to help you along the way.

Try adding leopard print accessories, like a belt, purse or shoes. Leopard is a classic print with both black and brown in it, so it’s a natural addition to your outfit.

Consider an outfit that has tan and black strips, this is another variation on the brown black combination. Choose larger stripes for a more dramatic and flattering effect.
