    Style Tip: Wearing Black and Brown Together

    Qi fur vest | Waverly Grey silk dress (similar) | Stuart Weitzman ankle booties (also seen here) | Versona necklace 

    One of the most common questions women ask me is "Can I wear black and brown together?"

    In the past I think it was probably not quite as acceptable to wear black and brown but now days this rule no longer applies. In fact in the fall and winter a great way to mix up your wardrobe is to wear these two colors together. Black and brown are both neutrals so they work great together and with a variety of other colors. These two colors look great together if you add some interest to the outfit with textures and patterns (as I have done here with a printed brown dress and black fur vest)  Another trick to making these colors work together is to avoid mixing up too many different shades of brown. 

    Do you wear black and brown together?

    I love that combination. I think it's nice to work with dark colors together so that you can make a statement with small pops of color or wear it to set a certain mood. You look lovely.

    I love black & brown together and I think this is a great way to wear the combination. The dress and vest are great together, but the tights really finish the look.
