All black outfits for fall have a certain level of timelessness and functionality. But, if you’re looking for an alternative, shades of brown can deliver on both fronts. Brown is an IT color of fall this year. You can have so much fun styling your favorite hues in the color family, from chocolate to toffee. In today’s post, I’m sharing how I’ve been rocking the must-wear color.
What I’m Wearing:
Nothing exudes sophistication like a monochromatic outfit. Whether you choose to block the exact same color or color block in the same family of hues, the result is sharp when done right. In this outfit, I’m rocking some basic jogger pants and a sleeveless turtleneck. The look comes alive, though, because of the colors, a little toffee mixed with copper mixed with chocolate. These rich, deep, complementary tones mix so well together. They also provide the perfect backdrop to pop a contrasting color, like the deep olive on my Telfar bag.
Since these hues are popular, the options will be plentiful. My joggers and top are from Zara (linked above). My coat is a beautiful Theory find (get it on sale here). It’s pricey for what it is (an unlined, wool/cashmere, one-button coat), but the quality and overall look are worth every penny. It goes with everything too (see it also worn here). I got it in a size medium for an even more oversized fit.
