Black and Brown, Part 1

50 Is Not Old | Black & BrownI have never given much thought about wearing black and brown together. I just assumed that if a leopard looked that good wearing black and brown, I could too. This is what I wore to work last Monday. This is a pretty simple look.  Take a black sweater, camel colored pants, and a leopard print shoe, and you’ve got an outfit. But, does black and brown really go together? I did a google search and found that nobody really knows. Some say yes, others say no way, and still others say it all depends. There is even a fashion challenge to post your outfit wearing the two together.

50 Is Not Old | Black & Brown 1This sweater is a Ralph Lauren sweater that I picked up at T.J. Maxx. I really liked the little silver horseshoe detail on the shoulder of the sweater. The pants are the Harper style from Old Navy.  I bought them about a month ago, and really liked them. However, they don’t fit me very well now. They got baggier as the day wore on. Here is a picture after I got home from work.

The clutch help to bring the colors of the outfit together. It is made with feathers and is very vibrant in person. I actually have a little hat that matches the clutch, but I don’t really look good in hats. These are both vintage finds that I have had for years.

  1. Great job! Love the look and your post. I really appreciate your telling where the pieces come from. I’m definitely getting some black and brown accessories!

  2. The outfit looks much more expensive than it is. I bought the pants and paired it with a similar shirt and get more compliments. Thank you, you have get style.
