HEY, HOW DO I WEAR…
1 WHY IT WORKS
Brown is officially the new black. Spotted on the Dior and Chloé catwalks and worn by everyone from Meghan Markle to the Kardashians, earthy hues tap into winter’s ’70s trend. Choose the right shade for your skin and style it with a blend of textures.
2 TAILORING & TEXTURE
Fashion maths: clashing textures + tailoring = the way to pull off a tonal look. Lucy’s outfit feels polished, thanks to the sharp lines of her jacket and trousers and mix of tactile finishes – patent croc boots with denim and ribbed knit.
3 BEST BROWNS
Choosing the right tone is all down to your complexion. Warm shades such as amber, caramel and golden brown all look great on cooler-toned skin. Cool hues like mocha, dark chocolate, and espresso flatter warmtoned gals. Think Ross and Rachel: opposites attract.
4 COLOUR STACKING
See how Lucy has “stacked” her browns in a gradient, from the darkest at the bottom, through medium in the middle to the lightest on top? This is a foolproof styling formula that draws the eye upwards. The dark colour “grounds” the look and is the most flattering way to wear a tonal outfit.
