Black & Brown

January 17, 2012

Our friend and fellow fashion enthusiast, Ciso, shares his view on on one of the original fashion challenge: combining black and brown.

Should you wear those brown Aviator boots with that black or grey shirt? Do the black and brown rules even apply anymore? I ask myself these questions from time to time, prior to me deciding on what to wear. I personally think black and brown or even grey and brown pairs extremely well with each other. I certainly prefer over the unadventurous blue and brown combination.

To be clear I’m no expert when it comes to fashion. Actually, I consider myself to be a Banana Republic conservative, but I like to think the black and brown combination gives my style an edge. I think it’s safe to say that any variation of black and brown or grey and brown is no longer a fashion faux pas. So don’t second-guess yourself or your style. You decide!

Outfit Combo: black shirt from Sovereign Code, grey shirt from Banana Republic, jeans from Guess, shoes from Steve Madden, watch from Fossil.

    I love that Mimi & Chichi is hosting men’s fashion posts! This is great :) I love the look of black and tan and really all neutrals together. I think the big question comes in when you’re choosing browns that just aren’t different enough from the black…because then it just doesn’t look right, especially if you’ve accessorized with black every other way (belts, etc.). I like the looks above!
