Outfit 15/91 Do You Mix Black with Brown?

T-shirt, black jeggings, boots. I'm still not 100% comfortable mixing brown boots and black jeans, but I'll give it a shot. When I was young, it was a huge faux pas to wear black with brown or blue. The rules have changed! 

I was excited a few years ago when grey + brown started showing up in fashion magazines. That rule was easy for me to throw out. I still feel like black looks strange with dark brown, but I think I can adjust to the combo in today's outfit.

The great thing about being able to mix all the neutrals is it expands the options within a capsule wardrobe! 

Do you wear brown with black? How about grey and brown?  


  1. This is a beautiful pic of you!! I agree, it feels a little bit uncomfortable to mix lighter boots with darker jeans -- but this looks SO good! I like these jeggings!

  2. Thank you! This experiment is making me try out combinations that I normally wouldn't - and I think that's a good thing. :)
