Every so often the fashion world introduces a surprise must have color of the season. Though many of them are unexpected, none of them have ever surprised me as much as the it color of the moment, brown. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love brown for more reasons than one. My skin is brown so that pretty much seals the deal. Any chocolate desert is a yes for me and the color in general screams fall. However, when it comes to fashion brown isn’t usually a color I lean towards. After all, we were taught the color black is the chic must have. Of course black is here to stay but I was super excited to mix a few brown pieces into my wardrobe. The designs have come a long way from the dreadful brown garments our parents wore years ago.
I didn’t go too crazy with brown when putting this look together. I kept it simple with a brown turtle neck and of course my handbag is brown. The color works perfect with neutrals such as this one. The trench coat and skirt I am wearing is from River Island. I really love the brand because they have such quality peaces and usually fit true to size. The coat I am wearing is a large and my skirt is a size 12. I wanted to keep the neutral flow going so I added a pair of tan knee high boots. What are your thoughts on wearing brown? Will you be adding the color to your winter wardrobe ?
