I don't know why we don't see more brown with bright colors; the colors share the same degree of saturation, and some of these combinations are pretty nice!
As always, let's start with some hard-working basics:
|flowered flats – Taryn Rose|
These colors felt close enough to me that wearing them together with just a touch of garnet jewelry seemed sufficient. Warm and rich...
pumps – Trotters
These colors play together nicely - just a touch of sparkle from a brooch is all I would add here!
crossbody bag – Brahmin
Sleeveless – Dorothy Perkins
Yes, all of these are described as shocking pink, but this one doesn't seem shocking at all to me. I'd describe it as rosy and very flattering.
oxfords – Munro
I particularly love the orange velvet corduroy, but they are... gasp... an investment!
Velvet-corduroy - Gucci
As in so many instances, the right scarf makes so much difference.
boots – Munro
|Dip-dyed - Ferrante|
This necklace was BORN to wear with this outfit! And notice the brown buttons on the cardigan - it's the little details that hold things together visually.
A red jacket is a great idea for cold, dark autumn and winter days...
|Belted – Erika Cavallini|
I love these socks and shoes...
To wear with brown, a true gold metallic blouse is a great choice!
Bow - Moschino
Sort of dressy, but not over the top - could be useful for so many evenings where you want to look like you made an effort, but you don't want to overdo.
I'm thinking of olive as tomorrow's neutral!
