I have a brownish skirt, sort of coffee coloured (milky coffee) with a white pattern. I was going to wear it with a plain black t shirt top. I thought I looked ok when I tried it on, but I'm not so sure now I think about it.

I would. I mean, you would prob wear black opaques with a brown skirt so why not a top? I think its sounds nice.

Sorry..."nice" sounds a bit flat!! I mean it sounds absolutely fine!

hmm...would I wear black opaques with a brown skirt? I'm not sure. Although what other colour would I wear? I suppose you're right.

i wear black and brown together. Didn't realise it wasn't 'allowed'.
Who makes up these weird rules and who follows them?

I wouldnt ever wear black and brown together. But I'm not any sort of style expert. smile

black and brown is good together, esp with another cvlour or pattern thrown in.

you know you have to try it on, take a photo and post it up here so we can all comment and look at your wallpaper, don't you? just to check

ditto cupchar

black with other dark colours is chic

now black with bright colours, not good

I did think it looked ok, I'll not worry about it any more.
