Break old fashion rules
When I was a kid my mother and grandmother taught me various fashion rules. One of them was never wear brown and black together. While as a kid I had to obey this rule, today I love to break it. I like to combine this fake suede brown blazer with my black pencil leather skirt. Another old fashioned style rule I like to break is not to wear white after Labor Day.
When wearing brown and black together, go for browns that are on the medium to light side
As now temperatures were in the lower 50s (10oC) in Fairbanks even in the afternoon, I wore my GNW 3/4 sleeve printed cardigan as a top. The cardigan has a black, beige and light brown print which ties the brown and black of the blazer and skirt and the beige and black of the shoes together. To give the outfit some further edge – in addition to wearing black and brown together – I wore my studded heels. The structured bag screams “I mean business” and helps keeping this outfit work appropriate in a casual work place. To up the style factor, I rolled up the sleeves.
Do you break old fashion rules? Do you wear brown and black together?
