Fall is officially kicking in, and so is a warm and earthy color palette that represents the new season. So how about mixing a warm brown with your sleek black to change up the mood?
Try pairing masculine and feminine pieces for a dynamic look. Borrow a brown button-front shirt from your Dad, and layer it under a classic, longer-length black blazer. Throw on a pair of super skinny gray charcoal jeans and black patent leather loafer flats. An accessory like a quirky little cross-body purse pulls the look together on Alexa Chung (left).
Brown has never looked more chic than on a high-waisted brown leather skirt belted at the waist. Pair it with a timeless sailor striped shirt, a black blazer cuffed at the sleeves, sheer brown tights, or a pair of rugged menswear oxford shoes.
