A question I’m being asked more and more often is whether or not black and brown can be worn together. A lot of guys who aren’t necessarily “fashion forward” see it being done by people who they deem as stylish so they feel like it’s too bold a move for them to pull off. I disagree. Whereas I will NEVER condone wearing a black belt with brown shoes or vice versa, the two colors don’t have to be mortal enemies.
By basing an outfit with a majority of black like I did here, you’re giving yourself a platform on which to build. The same can be done with brown when wearing a black jacket, but I think it works better with black as the undertone. A simple black tee and jeans create a base and then the brown of this LC King jacket can be a pop of color without being too bold. I especially like the length and color of this jacket. Perfect for an overcast day like today.
I added the knit cap because my hair looked like shit, haha. The white sneakers were a good way to break up the black but I could’ve easily also worn a pair of lighter brown boots. I’d recommend attempting to match your boots as closely as possible to the color of jacket you’re wearing, otherwise it starts to become a bit too cluttered with blacks and browns.
Super simple look, still allowing you to showcase your style.
