I’m just sure that I’m breaking some unwritten fashion blogger rule by wearing this bag every single day.
Is it bad that I’m a little proud of breaking that rule? ;)
On the topic of rule breaking, let’s talk about wearing black + brown together. I searched high and low to find the origin of this rule, but no one seems to know where this rule came from or who said it first. (If you know, do tell — I’m really curious.)
I’m all about wearing brown + black together because I think it’s another way to give an effortless air to your outfit.
If you’re trying this mix for the first time, pulling it off is all about one thing:
You’ll want to pick a lighter shade of brown to pair with black. Here, I’ve got this buttery cognac + black going on. And notice how I sandwiched the cognac bag between the black hat and black shoes? Sandwiching like this is an easy way to give your outfit a look of completion + intentionality if you’ve got more than two black + brown pieces going on.
Pretty straightforward, right?
