How To Pair Black & Brown & White...

PANTS: ASOS / SWEATER: H&M / JACKET: Old Navy / BOOTS: (similar here & here) / BAG: Givenchy / SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban

Growing up I was always told not to mix brown and black when picking out an outfit. So that stuck with me until the last couple years. I don't know about you, but sometimes mixing patterns or colors can be scary at first, but they can have amazing results if done right! Fashion is all about breaking the rules!

I recently bought this black faux-leather Moto jacket from Old Navy and love it! I have been on the look out for a good black {faux} leather jacket for quite awhile. When I saw this one, and the price, I had to pick it up! I am usually a medium and had to size down to a small, so keep that in mind if you are going to shop for this jacket. {I also got this one in suede.}

This jacket literally would go with just about anything. I love Moto or leather jackets in the fall. It adds that dark/edgy feel, and it is a great layer to pair with fall colors and outfits. I like to wear darker colors in the fall, as well as deep/rich color schemes; as I feel most people do. Plus, a black leather jacket is a closet staple everyone should have if they are wanting to build their wardrobe. It can be worn with so many different things, and it is timeless. You can wear it for years to come and it still won't go out of style.

These OTK boots are from They came in the mail this past week, and I really wanted to wear them this weekend with my black Moto jacket. At first I was a little nervous about pairing the two together, but I loved how it ended up! 

I have found that as long as you have browns/tans/taupes that match and have the same color tone, when you pair it with black it will come together much more seamlessly! A lot of times if you are pairing two colors together, adding a nice neutral color {such as this white pant} will help break the colors up, or balance the outfit.

I am also a firm believer that accessories can tie an outfit all together. I have worn these black Ray-Bans non stop. They are such a classic sunny that will go with most outfits in the fall! And if you can't tell from my Instagram, I have been obsessed with my Givenchy bag this fall. I have probably taken it with me every time we've gone anywhere.

This is my take on pairing black and brown. I would love to see yours! Don't be afraid to jump out of your comfort zone and try something new. Plus, 90% of pulling an outfit off is confidence. Just go out there and rock it! That is what I always tell myself {as well as Colin tells me} if I am a little hesitant about wearing two things together. 

So go out there and rock it!
Happy Wednesday!
