saw Stylish Mother doing just that today

was shocking had always been told parentally that this Would Not Do

also I have seen nice brown boots

thought it best to ask MN style police

Was the coat black? And what kind of brown were the boots? I always think tan looks fine with black but like you, wasn't sure about chocolate brown? Will watch with interest!

sure looks cool

I agree with Mimi, chocolate brown with black is definitely not a good look but if they're a reddish or tan shade of brown it can work if done right- for example a nice leather pear of reddish brown boots with a nice sheen to them, with some black wool tights would look nice because of the contrasting textures. wink

Was it me grin? Seriously though, what is this drivel about brown and black? If it looks good to you, wear it! I do! And you know what, no-one's pointed and laughed, trust me round here I'd soon find out if someone had judged me.

I was wearing black skinnys with choc brown, flat boots today, along with a mixed, black, white and grey, wool coat.

In my head I looked the dogs, but like I say this was in my head, so who knows? lol

it would have to be a light brown or reddy-brown.

if it's dark brown and black it looks awful like you got dressed in the dark.

who cares what MN thinks?
If you want to wear it and you feel good in it wear it!
I always dress for me
Sometimes people compliment me
Sometimes they look at me like they never saw me before!
I dont care!!

Who cares. Go for it if you like it. Stuff it if some people think its wrong. IMO people who would judge you on that are probably twats.
