Today I want to do a take on what some may consider to be a fashion faux pas: mixing Black + Brown. Here at MNSB, i love to break rules, especially when it comes to fashion-sometimes we need to throw fashion rules out the window don’t you think? One of them: color combos. I’m sure you’ve probably heard your mom, aunty, or stuffy friend repeat one of the most pervasive old rules, “never mix black and brown in an outfit.” I am head-over-heels with brown and black right now. And I’m not the only one, as the temperatures drop, you see star sightings and smokin’ fashionistas everywhere donning this great color combo.

For years, the undertone in the fashion world has been to avoid black with browns, but I’m glad to see that tide turning. Wearing black and browns together open up so many more possibilities in ones wardrobe. Since black and browns are both neutral, they do work well together, but you have to be deliberate in pairing them. Breaking this “rule” is not new to celebrities, so If the celebrities are wearing black and browns together, so can we.

I’ve only recently started wearing browns, and am thrilled to see the additional options it brings in my wardrobe. It’s a color combo I may not have even enjoyed years ago, however I’ve found that if you pair the right shades of brown with black it actually works out quite nicely. And I know all of y’all have brown and black in your closet, so get to matching!

Realistically, black has a really hard time pairing with anything other than grey and white. I think it’s because as soon as it sits next to another color, the black starts to look less rich and deep whilst the color just looks cheap. I love the color contrast. It makes neutral colors pop instead of blend together.

It makes a statement of confidence anytime you go outside f the matchy-matchy box. Use your creativity to make bold fashion choices. It is a fun way to express yourself!

So, are you convinced at all to break the “Wearing Black with Brown” fashion rule? There are still going to be those few that stand back and think, “Hmm, she does not match,” but then again, what fun would it be if we all dressed the same? Someone has to daring. When you dress confidently, it’s amazing how just that attitude pulls it all together.

Are you going to take the challenge, or do you already mix brown and black on a regular basis? Do you think this is a fashion rule we should follow? What other fashion rules do you follow, or you think can be broken? What challenges would you like to see in the future? Let me know with a comment!
