  1. I’ve always been such a stickler for not wearing brown and black together! I always point it out when my husband mixes those two and he doesn’t understand where I’m coming from haha. I am not even sure who taught me that because I am TERRIBLE when it comes to fashion. All I know is that it was embedded into me to not wear those two colors together. But, after reading your post, I realize I have been hanging onto a piece of advice I should probably let go of! Your brown and black outfits look great! Clearly. I just don’t know how to dress hahaha. Thanks for this!

    • Haha I doubt you’re terrible, but you’re right, where did this “rule” even come from? So happy this post could provide a different perspective!

  2. I’ve luckily never been one to care too much about the fashion rules. Wear whatever you like, right! I love your layout of this post, very easy to read and I wish it was longer!

  3. Firstly, I love like ALL of these outfits!! You’re such a stylish babe! And yes yes yes to breaking all of these rules! Admittedly at times they have helped me but I feel that as I’ve cemented my sense of style, it’s much more inviting to break them. The one I still probably stick to the most is take one thing off (because I tend to wear a lot of accessories!) and the one I break the most is no white after Labor Day, because haha no.

    • Thank you! At the end of the day, it’s all about wearing whatever you want to wear. I just don’t want people to feel restricted by these “rules”!

  4. Yes! Break those rules! I have been a stickler for the no brown and black together rule for a long time, but just recently I have been venturing out of my comfort zone on this one. I can finally wear my favorite brown shoes with my monochromatic black outfit! Thank goodness!

  5. OMG I’m all for breaking fashion rules, and these are some of my personal favorites. Especially black with brown, pops of color, and white after Labor Day. YES YES YES. You slay, girlfriend!

  6. We live in Florida so it is HARD to not wear white year round. Because it’s always warm, white is always in!

  7. Break all the rules! I love the point you made with your first rule because I tend to say the same thing – leopard print has all three colors (brown, black, and white). They’re all neutral colors meaning they work with each other too!

  8. I love breaking all these fashion rules!! As long as you style them correctly, like you did, then you can totally rock these!!

    xo, Laura

  9. YES! I agree with every single one of these!! I don’t like fashion “rules” either. I think the #1 in my book is “no white after Labor Day”. Um, NO. White all day errryyy day in my opinion! Lol

  10. Thank you! I love this. Fashion shouldn’t have rules. Someone was just telling me I could not wear my black pants with brown shoes and I was like 🙁 ehhhh.
    Good idea for a post!

  11. Greatest fashion blog ever and you don’t let others tell you what to wear. You have your own style and it’s perfect. And the best part is, you don’t have to pay an exhorbitant price to achieve a classy look, and you are humorous with the comments. I love it! You say what we all think when they tell us not to wear brown with black, or mom jeans. You rock girl!

    • Aww thanks, Ellen! This comment made me so happy. Thank you for making my day! I hope everyone realizes they don’t have to spend a million bucks to look like it!
