Black & Brown . . . Do or Don't

I remember the days when I was younger and you did NOT wear black and brown together! But today it seems different and unless it's your personal preference, I don't think it's a fashion no no. I for one love black and brown and it doesn't bother me or I don't think "ewww." But I also know some people that hate black and brown. They hate it when it comes to clothing and even furniture - which is something I like to do to. So - what does everyone else think about black and brown?? I mix it all the time and wear a black dress with brown boots and accessories, but we all have our opinions/ likes and dislikes.


These are a couple pics from a while back when I wore a brown dress with black boots - and I loved wearing the 2 colors together!

I like it, if it is intentional. You know how guys sometimes do it because they didn't have black shoes or something, that does not work for me.

Totally DO. I'm a firm believer that almost any colors can go together with the right accessories. (By the way I love the boots!!)

I think it is a really cute look if you use the right accessories. Hope you have a great weekend! = )

I used to think the same way, now I do black and brown all the time!

I just muttered that to my hubby last week, "You can't wear brown and black!", because like Rachel said, if it's intentional, it can definitely work, but just to throw something together, sometimes it doesn't work so well.

Um, you'd look good in a brown trash bag and black rain boots sister! I think it's all about what looks good on you. You have to be able to pull it off which you def DO!
