Brown emerges as this season’s key colour trend. Whether you opt for the dark espresso shades or paler tans, this most earthy tone makes a powerful fashion statement.
Incorporating Brown Into Your Wardrobe
Brown, in its myriad shades from chocolate to caramel, is surprisingly versatile. While it may have once been considered an afterthought, it’s now one of fashion’s most sophisticated statement colours. It typically has neutral undertones, which means it doesn’t lean too heavily towards warm or cool tones. This neutrality allows it to complement a wide range of skin tones without clashing or overpowering.
If you’re wondering how to seamlessly incorporate brown into your wardrobe, start with accessories like a chic leather handbag or trainers. These subtle additions can complement your existing wardrobe without being too overwhelming. It’s a good tip to combine different textures; for example, a brown coat with leather boots, or a chunky knit with tailored trousers.
Invest in a statement brown piece, such as a trench coat, leather jacket, or a great pair of boots. These can be the focal point of your outfit and add a touch of sophistication. Experiment with prints and patterns, such as plaid or animal print to add visual interest to your outfit while incorporating the earthy hue.
Teaming Brown with Other Colours And Prints
Brown plays exceptionally well with a variety of colours. For a classic look, pair with cream or white, or create a harmonious style with other earth tones, like olive green, mustard yellow and rust. These combinations evoke a natural and grounded aesthetic. Brown also works well with contrasting colours, such as blue, pink or teal. Go for colour blocking to add a playful and modern touch.
Leopard print is essentially a mix of brown and black spots so treat it as a neutral and pair it with other neutrals like tan, cream or beige. When wearing a statement leopard print piece, keep the rest of your outfit simple; or for the less brave opt for print accessories to instantly elevate a basic outfit.
