Chic Color Combo: Brown, White, And Black

Even this bright color lover likes some neutral hues, especially when paired together. A chic color combo I adore right now is brown, white, and black. There’s something so magical about the sharp contrasts created when these three colors come together.

What I’m wearing:

White jogger set (option, option) | Coat (similar, similar) | Sneakers | Bag

 Kendra Scott earrings | Kendra Scott bracelet | Kendra Scott ring/ring

brown black white color combo

You’ve seen my coat before. I wear it often and with everything (see here, here, and here). It’s the perfect shade of copper brown for mixing and matching. For this sharp brown, black, and white combination, I wore the coat with my favorite white jogger set, some black sneakers, and a black/white scarf. The result?  An effortlessly chic ensemble.

This coat is hands down a favorite 2020 purchase. I found mine in a TJ Maxx Runway store, and it was worth every penny. You can find it at the Theory outlet here. Want an alternative? Everlane has a cool option in the same color (see that here).

Why You Need Oversized Shirts In Your Spring Style

Supersized shirting is a spring trend that has my full attention. This oversized shirts trend is right on time too. I mean, who doesn’t need a billowy silhouette that’s sure to fit, comfortable, and chic? Styles in mood-lifting hues, like this light purple, are my favorite. Color just breathes new life into clothes, doesn’t it?

What I’m wearing:

Shirt dress | Joggers (option) | Superga jute sneakers

 Kendra Scott earrings | Kendra Scott bracelet | Kendra Scott ring/ring

Oversized Shirts

My purple number is an oversized shirt dress from H&M. It was an easy choice because of its color, silhouette, and striking puff sleeves. It’s quite versatile too and can be worn as a dress or as top. For an off-duty street style look, I paired my dress aka oversized shirt as a top with joggers and sneakers. And, just like that, it was a look. Want to see another styling option for your oversized shirts? Check out how I styled a beautiful peach option here.

Oversized Shirts

So, to recap, supersized shirting is comfy, versatile, and stylish. They’re also always in style. All of these features qualify them as a  must-try trend in the spring.

How To Update This Classic Fall Print

No doubt, plaid is a classic fall print. So, as you pack away your summer staples and make room for all things fall, secure a spot for plaid prints too. Last fall/winter, we witnessed plaid shake off its stuffy reputation, presenting itself as edgy even. This season, we’re seeing more of that. And, with some easy styling tweaks, you can add a lot of flavor to your old plaid favorites too.

What I’m Wearing:

Plaid topper | Zara Faux leather pants (similar) | Belt | Stuart Weitzman booties (sold out)

Wool fedora (size M) | Lip: Charlotte Tilbury “Red Carpet Red”

First thing’s first, my plaid topper is an all-time favorite piece from St. Louis-based Soft Surroundings. It’s like a coatigan (neither coat nor cardigan), making it a transitional weather essential. It’s super soft and quite chic. The best news? If you missed it last year and wanted one, it’s back (shop it here)!

A topper in plaid is a great choice for styling and restyling. This topper can elevate basics like jeans (see here). It can add a stylish touch to your favorite joggers. And, it can offer an interesting style juxtaposition when paired with edgier pieces like faux leather leggings.

My flared, faux leather leggings are an older style from Zara (see them styled here, here, and here). I’ve linked a few current options in the widget below because tis the season to rock that pleather.

To cinch the look together, I added a statement belt, booties (for the color and texture), and a sharp fedora.
