See? You can wear black and brown together and not look dark and depressed (though fluffy blonde hair definitely helps). This a huge fashion trend for fall. The key is fitted pieces, trendy accessories (a great bag, big aviators, scarves) and lots of layering. Equally important is mixing the colors evenly. You can't wear an entirely black outfit with brown shoes, but if you wear 2 black pieces and 2 brown pieces, or a black outfit with loads of brown accessories, you'll pull it off easily.
