Brown gets a bum rap as a clothing color (and is traditionally considered a no-no for men’s suits), but its successful use seems to me a matter of choosing well. The RIGHT brown, taking complexion and other factors into account, can be a gorgeous on…
Why aren’t you a fan of browns in clothes again? I don’t remember that? It seems soo many great tweed jackets are best when they’re brown- it feels more like fall when that’s the case. Don’t you agree?
Why not brown? I think brown can be so amazing and so complimaentary to so many skin tones. I especially love a deep bitter chocolate as an alternative to black especially on women as they get older as it is a lot softer than a hard black – i say go the brown all the way, as with any colour its all about the tone and shade
I began to rethink brown after seeing “Tony Takitani”–a Japanese film based on a story by Haruki Murakami, about a woman obsessed with clothes. A character wears a turtleneck sweater in the most amazing dark dark brown.
I love you, sart, but I think it’s so weird that you would be against a color for clothing. I don’t love earth tones, but if I put on brown or olive green, everyone tells me that I look great in those colors–so I’m starting to wear them more.
That said, I don’t love this look, though the individual elements are nice.
