The Colour Brown

This is part of a series of posts about colour.  This month I am focusing on the colour brown.

I have a confession to make.  I don’t wear the colour brown!  I think it’s because I wear a lot of black, I just haven’t ever bothered with brown.

Last month I started playing with some brown and purple colour combinations, and I thought to myself…hmm, brown is pretty cool, it works really well with a lot of colours.

That’s why I made it the colour of the month.

Brown is a great neutral colour in your wardrobe, and you’ll see over the course of the month how great the colour can look with all sorts of other colours.

Let’s start with brown and ivory.  Ivory is a great contrast to the darker brown.
