It’s the middle of a hot Summer in most of the US, but today is about Autumn looks to change things up and make us look forward to Fall. Brown has been making a slow and steady comeback after a decade’s absence, so here are some great looks for Team Brown and Neutrals.
1. Brown Bottoms Plus Blue Support Act
Choose a pair of pants or a skirt in a shade of brown, and combine it with a blue top and topper, and blue shoes. Here, the blue is a shade of navy, which looks rich and Autumnal. Dark denim and ink blue will work well too. Light blue and French blue will also look lovely with brown, so take your pick. I love the twinset effect of the top and topper, and the patterned blue loafers that add an unexpected touch. A brown or navy bag is a neat and tidy way to finish things off. There’s a patterned bag on the table behind the model that matches her shoes. Super fun.
2. White Jeans and Brown
Combine a pair of white or off-white jeans with a brown top. Here it’s a twinset, but it can be any style of top. Finish the look off with white sneakers, or brown shoes and bag. Any shade of brown is good, as are shades of taupe and tan. Animal print shoes and bag could work well too. Feel free to throw in a patterned scarf that picks up the palette of the outfit.
3. Trendy Classic Brown
This look combines trends and classics. The brown leather or faux leather wide crops and patchwork blazer are on-trend. The blue shirt and ankle boots are classic. Here, the shirt has been tucked and buttoned through to the collar, but you can wear it untucked and unbutton some of the top buttons. Wear the blazer open too. The hoop earrings are another classic touch. I can see a cream bag work well because it picks up the bits of cream in the patterned blazer.
4. Brown in Hot Weather
And last, if your Autumns are hot, wear a brown dress with sandals, mules or slides to keep cool. Here’s a striking pinstriped shirt dress as one option. It’s styled with a belt, but can be worn without one. A black bag would match the black slides. A cream complement of sandals, belt and bag would be my personal preference because it matches the stripe of the dress. Add jewellery, watch and eyewear as desired.
