Fashion Forward: Brown
Feeling blue. Throw on some brown. It's a must have color for fall.
Pantsuits, coats, tops -- you name it.
Azria used chiffon in a variety of dress styles.
Layered see through tops over jackets.
And in some cases even layered brown over black or black over brown.
Layering is big at BCBG. The designer uses different shades and textures to create just the right look.
Max Azria, BCBG, says "It's about patchwork of different fabric in some clothes. We have a skirt with 7 or 8 different fabrics where we mix the lace, chiffon, silk, velvet, satin.."
At Hugo Boss Women they've got everything from clothes, to accessories.
Pin striped suits with see through tops.
Brown jackets with suede detailing.
And Fabu brown frocks for a night on the town.
Brown too boring for you -- then liven things up with a brown based print. Do an empire waist dress.
Or a bold graphic top and skirt --- it matches with more colors than you might think.
Mario Vergel, Hugo Boss Women, says "As a matter of fact in many wardrobes brown is a staple black grey and brown..I always think brown and beige brown and tan...no...no..no..."
"Matching brown with red looks great it's one of the very few colors you can match with red and it doesn't create a huge contrast as opposed to matching it with black.."
So go ahead wear your chocolate and eat it too.
Remember no matter what you wear feel fabulous on the inside.
