Combining brown and black
I wonder if there is still a hard and fast rule about the brown/black don't mix in an outfit rule.

Years ago , I thought I read somewhere that it was a no..no which was why I had avoided that combination for years but I see celebrities wearing brown and black now and it looked pretty good. I'm wearing dark brown and a dusky pink right now

I love mixing brown and black!! mostlywhen working, I wear a black longsleeved shirt and black pants with this caramel brown laceup shoes with matching belt, and it looks great, and if im going out, I add a little brown blazer or a white one to make an impact...rules were meant to be broken!

I agree, brown goes so well with pink - especially a lighter pink. Love the combo!

I also love a dark brown with mint green - one of my personal favorite combinations.

Brown and black together can be very chic. And who has tried Spanx reversable brown/black tights for winter? GORGEOUS!

I love mixing brown with black. It's a very classic combo that will never go out of style. I have a wool coffee-colored skirt with chocolate piping and I pair it with a rich black turtleneck and I always get tons of compliments.

Thanks Serena!

last night I was wearing black cords with a black turtleneck, and a brown distressed fitted peacoat, and matching suede shoes...it looked too good for Miami

I felt like I've missed out on so many brown/black combinations because of a silly article I don't even remember where I read it . I'm glad I have this board to answer all my fashion questions
