If you feel uninspired by your staple grey and navy, considering something in brown for a change and a more versatile wardrobe. The rich brown garment will always bring attention to wearer, yet it is not excessively dominant of other complimentary tones in the outfit or, much worse, appearing peacockery. Particularly during this cold Melbourne weather, it is time to exploit the earthy tone of elements to layering, adding contrast to your winter style.
Be it casual or tailoring, brown works perfectly with other classic pieces. Take a brown jacket for example, pairing it with grey flannels trousers, is visually more intrigued than the typical navy blazer, while still remain subtle and balanced. In fact, putting it against other dark coloured pants such as navy and olive (another unique colour that we shall explore), it fairs much better as opposed to say a grey sport coat, one that poses the risk of looking dull.
The options increase when you start to experiment with distinctive shade of brown such as cocoa and chocolate, different material like corduroy and tweed. We love heavier fabric and thick rugged leather. Once worn well and often, the brown piece will then be properly broken in, bearing your marks with creases on the jacket's sleeve, folds on your scarf and patina on the gloves.
Have fun dressing up this season.
