How do we feel about mixing black and brown together in an outfit? It’s always been kinda a grey area for me…to do it or not to do it?

I posted a topic similar to this not long ago and the advice given to me was it can be done. However, I am still struggling. I try to avoid it.

I was never a huge fan before, but the key is to find the right browns. Usually, the darker the brown, the less I like it when paired with black. Try and find “orangey” browns, it’s a little brighter and usually off-sets the black nicely. :)

Lighter browns can be nice. I don’t believe in fashion rules.

Hmmmm, I’m afraid I don’t like blacks and browns together to be honest. Which is a pain for me cos I have brown hair, brown eyes and brown skin, so sometimes I think I look a bit naff wearing black. But I like colour anyway.

Rules have no real place in fashion. You can make practically anything work. =)

This has been a big issue for me because I have so many brown bags and so many black shoes… but no black bag, and no brown shoes!! I’ve been able to find some brown shoes recently, but still have yet to find a great black bag. My poverty guarantees I’ll be without a nice black bag for a long time.

I also agree with InstantVintage that rules don’t have a place in fashion.

I don’t think it’s that bad as long it’s not an overwhelming mix like a completely black dress and a brown belt or something…

two neutrals @ d same time? maybe it works sometimes…i think it really depends on how you feel on what your wearing and if your confident in it
