WTWW ~ How to Wear Brown

The kids are back in school and the weather is slowly changing. It’s time for another “What to Wear Wednesday”. The color brown is the new neutral of the season. Don’t worry, black is not going anywhere. But, it’s been awhile since we have seen brown on our feet as a fashion color so, we thought we would show you some examples of how we would wear this versatile shade.

Faux fur in every style and color is the coat of the season. We would wear this “teddy bear” coat with these two-tone ankle boots from Ernesto Dolani. They’re borrowed from the boys, yet slightly feminine with its chunky heel.

If you haven’t already noticed. Plaid everything is also the trend when it comes to prints. Besides wearing these oxfords with pants, we would gladly wear them with tights and a dress. Moma’s wingtip design and rich coffee color make them the perfect match for an outfit like this.

We are diggin all the spicy tone colors in ready to wear for this season. We love pumpkin, rust, mustard, ochre and olive greens. Best neutral to go with? Brown of course! We would wear these dark chocolate beauties from Ernesto Dolani with everything!

Our Favorite Colors for Fall

Who is ready for the change of seasons, and do we dare say, the rain? The fires in the PNW have made our skies smokey and we are ready for a little rain to clean up our atmosphere in Seattle. As more collections arrive at the shop, we definitely have some favorite colors that are inspiring us for the Fall/Winter season. Here are just a few to get you in the mood.

Deep, rich, dark blue. An alternative to black and slightly less edgy.  We love the shade of navy on this Officine Creative Chelsea boot.  We would wear these with jeans or basic black leggings. They would also look wonderful with longer skirts and of course anything dark blue.

Dark espresso brown with a slight hue of cool gray is the best way to describe the color of this bag from Aunts and Uncles. The perfect carry-all that can convert itself from a handbag to a tote.  We would carry this bag when we are wearing shades of olive green, gray or dark chocolate brown. Perfectly acceptable with black too.

Fresh and cool, deep greens are another favorite here at re-souL. Green is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray, black and wine. These oxfords by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.

Brown is Back!

With the weather changing and the rain coming back, we are starting to get in the mood for Fall shoes. After a couple of seasons of black and gray, it’s nice to see some rich shades of brown in the shop like tan/camel, russet, and dark chocolate.

Brown is Back : Tan Tilda clog by re-souL

Our re-souL clog “Tilda” is the perfect light color brown for transitioning into Fall. We would wear these with denim and our favorite skirts and dresses. When it gets a bit cooler we would wear these with some fun patterned socks.

Brown is Back : P. Monjo P-982 Cuff Boot

We love the richness of this russet brown boot by P.Monjo. A brown shade with a hint of red, we would wear these boots with our favorite cable tights and midi-skirts. This color is also very complimentary to navy, burgundy and burnt orange.

Brown is Back : MOMA chelsea boot in Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate brown is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray and taupe. These Chelsea boots by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.
