Just like nobody obeys the “no white after Labor Day” rule, the don’t mix black and brown rule should be disregarded, as well. Mixing blacks and browns was an old fashion faux pas that is completely disregarded on every runway and in fashion magazines today. The two colors can complement each other extremely well in almost any situation. On both males and females, mixing browns and blacks can give off a classic look when done properly.
I came across a Fashioninsto who probably didn’t know about the rule in the first place, but ignored it anyway. He chose to combine a pair of light brown khakis with a black blazer. The light brown in the pants adds contrast to the look and make the two colors suit each other well. Although this may seem unconventional to those rule-abiding Fashionistas/os, the outfit works together perfectly. The preppy look is put together and clean looking, despite the fact that the pants and blazer do not match “perfectly.”
Underneath his blazer, this Fashioninsto wore a classic blue and white striped button-down with a bold red tie. The color combination he chose is both traditional and timeless. As for shoes, he rocks a pair of comfortable black loafers that tie in the black from the jacket.
Overall, all of the old school fashion “rules” are completely outdated. In today’s fashion world, almost everything goes. As long as you feel confident in what you are wearing, rock it!
