In the past, whenever a friend peeked into my wardrobe, the first thing they said was, “It’s 90% black clothes.” Which is to say, I was something of a black clothes loyalist. After all, it’s the easiest, most versatile colour that’s always flattering, and always situation-appropriate. What other colour could compete?
Turns out, I’ve found my new number one: brown. It started with a pair of brown tailored trousers, and over the past year my collection has slowly expanded to include cosy knits, my new go-to loafers and my favourite winter coat. Brown has truly become my top choice, and the cold seasons are when the colour truly thrives.
