FASHION FROM ABROAD: Back To Brown And Black

Fashion From Abroad

Many of my posts center around breaking the fashion rules we are brought up to rigidly follow year after year. An unconventional outfit always catches my eye. I love white after labor day and a plaid shirt worn with striped pants —atypical outfits allow Individuality to shine through. In the winter when it seems as though every person you pass on the street is wearing the same thing, my eyes are constantly searching for a funky outfit.

This Fashionista broke the black and brown rule, but in the best way possible. Five years ago when someone wore black and brown together, one would immediately gasp in horror. It was a definite “don’t” in fashion. However, as times have changed styles and trends have evolved. Now, wearing black and brown is not so much of a deadly fashion sin. In fact, I think the two work very well together.

This Fashionista wore brown and black in multiple facets of her outfit. Her black waffle thermal Free People shirt has a layer of caramel brown in the bottom. The combination acts as a gateway for the rest of her outfit. To combat the brisk weather, many people on the East Coast tend to rock a similar uniform of a black North Face knee length parka. Instead of clashing with the brown in her shirt, this Fashionista’s coat only added an element of winter chic to her outfit.

In addition, the caramel in this Fashionista’s shirt flatter the tan and dark brown in her ankle booties. Rather than looking like a clashing mess, this Fashionista’s outfit is the perfect example of how to don black and brown this winter. Take note!
