Can You Wear Black And Brown Together
The Black, White and Gold Of It
It’s funny how our taste in accessories and clothing changes over time. The time between these changes varies too, it can be a month or it can be three years. Suddenly you wake up one day and your favorite pants are not your favorite anymore. Or you’ve suddenly fall in love with everything black and white.
I was never really a big fan of gold but now I can’t get enough of it. I love gold in jewelry, handbags and shoe accents and come spring I might even like hints of it in my clothes.
How I Wear Black and Brown
It has been said that you’re not supposed to wear black and brown together. I’ve always wondered about the truth of it but never spent time researching it enough to know where this concept originated. Who was the person, magazine or designer that said no to these two hues ever sharing the spotlight? I’m still searching, so I’ll let you know in my next black and brown look.
Personally, I like wear black and brown colors in one outfit. When wearing these two colors I try to wear brown as the accessories and black in the outfit. The gorgeous flowy silk top is from Michael Stars spring collection, it’s the perfect blouse for this outfit.
In this outfit, I wore a light brownish-nude heels and a light brown handbag. These two items stand out because of the black and white contrasts. To maintain my signature style I kept the look minimal and classic with a contemporary twist. I topped off the look with matching dainty gold jewelry. Side note: dainty gold jewelry is everywhere at this Feb MAGIC 2014.
Do you ever wear black and brown together? Let me know how you combine the two.

Really nice outfit!! You definitely pulled off the brown and black 🙂 I love the combination of brown and black… it’s so chic!
I like this outfit a lot! And usually i would do for brown and black together, but when you keep the rest of the outfit very simple, like white, it does look great!

Brilliant combination! <3 it! Now we know, we can wear black and brown together! 🙂

Absolutely adore this outfit and I also think that black and tan can be worn together. I never thought of it until I bought a pair of shoes a few years ago – they were tan and black and looked gorgeous (well, they still do, really 🙂 )
Love love love your shoes and bag – will have to have a look at SS website.
P.S. I am hosting a little giveaway at the moment and hope you enter – if you like the prize, of course! 🙂
I’ve always heard that you couldn’t mix these two but I decided to give it a try and it looked very nice together. Thank you for you sweet comment!
