Layered black and brown

I wore this shopping yesterday. Luckily, our weather here in January has been on the warmer side, which means that I can get away with layers and no coat while shopping at an outdoor mall and without getting cold. Here’s the breakdown:

Striped Sweater: H&M
Cardigan (under vest): Burberry via Goodwill
Vest: Gap
Denim: Gap
Boots: DSW
Bag: Target

A friend recently asked on Facebook if I could show a black-and-brown look that destroys the old myth that says black and brown don’t go together. Black and brown are neutrals, which mean they go with everything, including other neutrals. Just to prove a point, I even added a dark olive green denim legging, which also acts as a neutral most of the time. Neutrals match other neutrals smashingly!
