In the past, brown was one of my favorite colors to wear. Essentially all my shoes were brown and I had plenty of brown t-shirts, sweaters and jackets. Lately, though, I’ve noticed a shift to black as my favorite neutral. This has led me to neglect some of the brown items in my closet. So today, I decided to make my brown slacks work. I combined them with a turquoise sweater, lavender accents and some navy. The shoes are still black, and another color might have worked better, but my only other option at this time is red, and I don’t think red and brown combine well on me. I think the outfit turned out nicely.
