How to Wear Black and Brown

When I was in high school I used to have strict color combo no-nos, and black and brown were definitely top of the don'tweartogetherevereverever list.  Also among the list was white and khaki, and blue on blue.  What can I say?  I was in high school, and I did a lot of weird things in high school.  Now that I'm an adult (don't laugh, really, I am!) all of those rules have gone out the window.  I wear stripes with leopard print, black and navy, and now brown and black.
Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: Loft
Shoes: Steve Madden
Belt: I heart Ronson
Bag: Coach
Earrings: F21

How do you wear black and brown?

Love the brown and black together!! I was the same way in high school too. In fact, I wouldn't wear sneakers with jeans unless I was also wearing a sweatshirt (bumming it). So I had two pairs of the same sketcher lace up shoes (think waiter shoes), one in black and one in brown, so that I would never mix blacks and browns either! :)
Love the mustard yellow too!

I love wearing black with brown accessories (or vice versa). You look fab Kinsey!

This is probably one of my fave outfit "recipes": flouncy skirt with a fitted sleeved tucked in and a belt to top it off!

I still have trouble with blue on blue, but that's because I'm weird. Black and brown though? I love it. LOOOOOOVE it. My favorite is probably black clothes with brown accessories.

I've always like black and brown together - but was made very aware that other people didn't think it went. My color hang-up is navy and brown together. I see other people pull it off but I always feel weird. And no more red/khaki - I associate it with Target. Ha!

I was uber anti brown/black back in the day. I never would have imagined how differently I feel about the combo now. You look great Kinsey - especially love that skirt.

The black brown and mustard really is a winning combo there.
