Re: What colors go with brown?

If you're speaking of deep chocolate brown, the jewel tones go best.  Think true navy, emerald green, ruby red, deep purple.  White for extreme brightness or off white if you're extreamly fair.

 

If it's a reddish brown, use rust, mustard, gray /orange, and deep olive greens.

 

If you want to learn more about colors and always have a color match, order Color Me Beautiful from Amazon.  You will have colors with a matching palette for every color area.  

 

It will spark outfit ideas in scarves and basics.

Olive green or turquoise are my first choices, but I think you can wear any primary color.  I wouldn't wear pastels with brown.

Re: What colors go with brown?

I wear brown a lot. Often it is less harsh than black.

 

Think of nature...

Most blues are great with browns

Lime green

coral and pink

 

 

Brown and white is striking. Especially for summer clothes.

Black and brown is sophisticated.  Think of animal print. Black and brown are staples in this color combination

 

If the brown is lighter and more of a neutral, navy and gray can look great.

White, black, camel, lighter browns, lilac especially looks good with brown, certain oranges and gold colors (these are all solid colors).  If you wear a pattern make sure there is brown in it.  Cat Very Happy

Re: What colors go with brown?

I like a deep pink or rose with brown.  Also many different shades of blue - aqua, turquoise, etc.  There are always the fall color of green and rust.  I also love brown and white in the summer.

For many years, I've avoided brown clothes---but I'm ready to go wild and try some brown. (LOL) I bought some brown ankle boots and I've ordered some brown jeggings. What color of tops and sweaters should I wear with brown? I do have a coral sweater and top that I think would look good, but I'm looking for more suggestions. What goes with brown?


Yellow, Hunter green, olive green, tans, beiges, whites, light pink, baby blue, more brown.
