For years I thought you couldn’t wear black and brown together. I thought they clashed and it was a fashion NO, NO! Well, then I learned how much I loved the two together! Its really all about how you style it and it doesn’t have to be hard.

To do this I recommend adding all the same color in one style. So for me, it was in the form of A. The Dress and B. The Accessories. As you can see my dress is my black piece and my accessories are my brown. I also kept my pieces in a similar color family. You wouldn’t want a light camel brown purse with a rich dark brown belt. I feel like this is KEY piece in pulling off a contrasting look like this one.

I’d been collecting some beautiful cognac brown pieces for a while and I couldn’t wait to put them to use together! I decided to add them to my Ride-or-Die little black dress. You know the one, the dress that looks good with everything. This dress is an oldie but goodie that I find myself going to all year around. I can dress it up or down, it’s comfortable and flattering. If you don’t already have this staple I highly recommend you get one. I like shirt style dresses personally.
