Exemption to the rule

Blazer, Thrifted • Dress, Freeway • Clogs, Virtual Mae • Belt, Mimi-The Ramp
Flower ring, Forever 21 • Circle ring, H&M • Bracelets, Necessary


One of the biggest color matching concerns is wearing black with brown. Everyone has heard at least one old fashion rule, “never mix black and brown in an outfit”. This rule is one of the most pervasive old fashion rules out there and it’s just not true at all! Here’s the thing, it’s all the way you put it together! 

So how do you make it work? Remember that neutrals go with everything! Neutrals, after all, go with every color, you can wear them with pretty much anything including each other. Make sure that you have a lighter shade of brown color when you pair it with black, it’s easier to pull off a black and brown outfit when you use shades of camel, taupe, or nude. These creates a nice contrast with the black. Add up a hint of animal print that contains both black and brown and accessorize with gold accents and a pastel color that match both colors, so building an outfit around it will be a piece of cake.

Matching colors does not have too be a fashion challenge. Just mix and match, wear what you think looks good and be a trend setter!
