Clashing Neutrals?

Wednesday, December 21, 2011 10:19 PM

I think there's some sort of fashion "rule" against pairing gray and brown. I'm not sure why — is it because gray is related to black? If that's the case, I have no compunction about mixing black and brown either. And I think gray is the most versatile neutral.

This outfit was inspired by Kendra's mixed neutrals. I was concerned about wearing gray on gray, and I considered adding a necklace or scarf for more color, but I liked the way it turned out with just the neutrals. The only things that didn't quite work were the slightly-too-short sweater and the dark, dark brown of the boots, which almost looked black. In any case, expect to see gray plus brown here again!
