The fashion rule of thumb is that trends come and go, but on Sunday night as I was organising my outfits for the week, I noticed a common thread. All the things I've bought recently are chocolate brown. It's a colour I haven't given much thought to in recent years, but back as a teenager, it was my go-to. I lived in a pair of brown flared cords (it was the early '00s if that makes sense?), and had a velvet brown bomber jacket on high rotation. I should note, I often wore these pieces together, which isn't how I'm incorporating the colour into my wardrobe today.
The recent chocolate brown additions aren't anything like what I wore in my past. The pieces are all soft, delicate silks, and work as layering pieces rather than the 'main event', or they're accessories. I realised, as I was putting my outfits together, that I'm wearing brown as a new neutral. Where I'd normally go for white/black/grey, I'm adding brown as an additional base to my look.
