I Hate the Color Brown, But I'm Into These 17 Pieces

Brown Dress Street Style

I’m just not that into brown. Sue me! Usually, the next thing I’d say would be, "Never have been, never will be," but some of this season’s pieces have me rethinking the latter. While I usually only stray from my wardrobe color palette of black, white, and blue (because jeans) for a serious exception, recently I find myself uncharacteristically drawn to a new neutral, and it’s kind of weird.

At first, when I saw the shade on countless garments coming down the S/S 19 runways last September, I was nothing more than intrigued, but now that the clothes and accessories have finally made it to market, I find myself letting certain pieces slide into my wish lists and almost my shopping cart. The fashion week street style that's going on right now certainly isn't helping the matter either. So just what am I loving? Just keep scrolling to first see some of my favorite runway inspiration for the trend then to see and shop my picks.

Shop my brown picks:

Nanushka's vegan leathers are second-to-none, and this dress is particularly of interest to me because it can also be worn open as a coat.

You can always count on Zara for an affordable find and a cool way to style it.

I really hope the (cozy) fleece trend never goes away.

Another mini bag I might just have to add to my collection.

This easy skirt will look perfect with floss heels and a T-shirt this spring. 

I love the barely there effect of these sandals.

Ideally, I'd like to re-create this entire outfit.

I'm obsessed with this whole collection.

An outfit idea I can totally get behind.

Now I'm thinking I need some light blue to go with all this brown.

A surprising yet structured shape that's sure to get you compliments.

Swap this with your go-to black knit for an almost-too-easy way to nail the trend.

I love the idea of pairing this with all cream for spring.

Wear this easy dress layered or on its own for an effortless look.
