This is further proof that rules are for fools and one should be able to develop the knack to follow certain guideline to create their own individual and polished look—it’s about choices.
Sure, trying to palm off a lightweight wool brown jacket and lightweight wool black slacks as a matched suit is a little cheesy, but wearing a brown croc belt /brown boots with black pants and a black sweater is positively divine.
It’s not about “matching” colors, but about complimenting textures and fabric weights. Brown can be paired with black when the individual items are in harmony and balance with each other and then each color plays off the other as an accent, rather than as a coordinated set.
