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.
