How to Wear Brown in the Summer

Brown doesn’t need to stay in your closet until fall. You can wear it in the summer too. Here are some ways to wear brown.

Listen to the Podcast Episode:

The Richer and Deeper the Tone, the Better

Go all in with a jewel tone or rust tone brown! The richer the better. I feel like going with a deeper chocolate brown is a lovely contrast to the summer shades. It is the unexpected aspect of wearing a rich brown in a sea of bright whites and pastels that makes it pop! Add a bold red lip and gold jewelry to finish it off.

Go for a Neutral Tone and Pair it with White

Second, go with a neutral tone with white. I think the combination of a brown tone with white is so chic. I add a light pink or nude lip and done! My  sweater tank top is in an XL.

Add a Pop of Brown

Finally, consider a pop of brown. This is perfect with your summer neutrals. I like to go with a deep chocolate color. Again, this color looks so good against white. It is an unexpected contrast. 

My cardigan, halter tank top and flare leggings are in an XL.  

Some Additional Things to Consider When Wearing Brown

The fantastic thing about brown is that you can wear it as we transition to fall. Additionally, there are a variety of different tones to choose from. You can go with a deep jewel tone chocolate with hints of orange to a light brown with off white tones.
