Do you Think Brown and Black Go Well Together?
All color lovers have to have this discussion at some point. Do you think brown and black go well together?
Ever since I was a kid I was obsessed with the idea of making my own color combinations for everything I wear. I loved choosing the shoe lace colors that went well with my dresses and my glittery hair accessories, I was obsessed. I used to tell my aunts when I thought their outfits didn’t matched, it’s funny that they actually listened to 3 year old me.
So one day I heard somebody on TV saying that brown and black didn’t go well together, and the little color obsessed girl I was couldn’t stop thinking about it. I tried so hard to never find myself wearing the two, until last Saturday morning.
I went to downtown San Jose for a walk and some doodling. Those days, when I’m carrying my notebook and a big handbag with lots of markers, I appreciate a comfy outfit. I wore a patterned dress from a Mexican designer I admire. I’ve had it since I was in college, ugh a long time ago! I love the long sleeves especially since the weather is getting colder. I added some brown leggings because they were warm and black tennis shoes because they were comfortable. Wait, WHAT? I didn’t even think about it, brown and black together.
I guess lately I just started discovering that there is no wrong when we talk about color combinations, if it makes you happy, who cares? But I will confess, there is a small part of me that doesn’t know if I should or shouldn’t wear those two again, please, HELP! What do you think? Do you wear black and brown together? How do you do it?
