Some colors can never go together, according to old-school fashion lessons. But in 2020 the rules will no longer apply — especially when you’re a top model. Judging by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s black and brown fall look, the time has come to bring the two colors together. And with her new look as a guide, you’ll easily discover that these colors are more perfectly matched than you thought.
If there was some doubt that black and brown could fit together without clashing, the British model recent set would prove otherwise. And how she dresses neutral colors will inspire you to put on a paint mix for the rest of the year. The 33-year-old Style Sensation and Beauty Entrepreneur — who just launched a new clean beauty brand this fall — shared a photo on Nov. 5 with fans highlighting her newest Coffee Run ensemble. Dressing for the colder weather in London, Huntington-Whiteley wore a brown wool and cashmere coat with an all-black look.
Instead of combining the two colors into her simple items, the model designs her wardrobe with black staples: a cashmere turtleneck sweater, slim trousers, and leather boots. Then she ends her set with the brown coat as a layer and ties her look together with two luxurious black pieces — the Hermès Constance bag and the Celine Edge sunglasses.
One swipe through the Instagram account of RHW will lead you to summarize its aesthetics in two words: modern minimalism. The English supermodel has a growing line of looks showcasing classic silhouettes in a neutral color palette of black , brown, beige, cream and white. Of course, when it comes to wearing these colors together, she does it seamlessly.
You might fancy yourself a sartorial minimalist like Huntington-Whiteley, or you just want a model-approved way to take the coldest months of the year. Any way, this paint combination will give your fall and winter wardrobe a fresh upgrade for 2020.
