How to style your brown loungewear

How to style brown loungewear

Brown is getting massive fashion focus this season. It has always been a colour that I’ve been wary of. How does one style brown? Is head-to-toe brown too much? Does it suit my skin tone? What shoes do I wear with it? I’ve had so many questions! And as a result, I’ve generally steered clear of it.

But this season I’m challenging myself to wear brown and style it in a way that will suit me. In this outfit, I’ve used loungewear from Isabel de Villiers, jewellery by Iloni, shoes by House of Cinnamon and a crossbody bag by Wanderland Collective.

CAN I WEAR BROWN?

Since brown is such a popular hue this season I decided to make an effort to find a shade that works for me. The good news is that there are so many options that I was bound to eventually find a shade that would suit me. I have cool, pale skin. For me, brown garments with a red undertone work best. Browns with a yellow undertone and very light browns that are closer to beige don’t work on me but they will look stunning with olive and warm skin tones. Dark skins look amazing in most browns especially light browns and beige.

WHAT SHOES & BAG DO I STYLE WITH A BROWN OUTFIT?

My next dilemma after finding a brown shade that works for me was: what shoes and bag do I style with it? This question was a tricky one. The quick answer is that black is the easiest. Some beige shoes also work and best of all is a shoe that is very close to the colour of your outfit.

For the outfit above, I found pointy pumps that are very close to the colour of the brown loungewear. For a bag option, I liked how the pink and brown Wanderland Collective Round Bag added a new dimension to the outfit. I tied the pink from the bag in with some pinky-brown eyeshadow and lips.

Here are some shoe and bag options to style with a brown outfit:

WHAT JEWELLERY DO I STYLE WITH A BROWN OUTFIT?

I found that gold and brass jewellery works best. It brightened the outfit and to me, works better than silver. The size and style of the jewellery will depend on your outfit. In the outfit above, I liked the pearl and brass earrings by Iloni. The pearls pick up the ocean images on the bag and add some iridescence, and I couldn’t resist adding the matching brass and rubber bangle.

Here are a few jewellery options that will go well with a brown outfit:

MAKE-UP WITH A BROWN OUTFIT

I tested a few options and found that it was best to steer clear of brown eyeshadow that is identical to the colour of the outfit. It ends up being “too much”.

In the outfit above, I chose (currently trendy) pink and burgundy eyeshadows. For lips, I feel a light dusty pink is always a winner.
