Color Class: Camel & Black

For fall and the holiday season, combining a black item from your closet with something in the camel or brown family is an easy way to be on trend.  This color combination is a nod to the 70s and the whole Ralph Lauren equestrian vibe.  There are so many different ways to wear these colors. Almost everyone has a black top and leather belt in their wardrobe.  Shop your closet and pull an ensemble together. 

Love it!

Here is a great example of how separates can work together to create a cohesive look.  You do not need all of these pieces achieve a similar effect.  Do you have a black jacket or chunky cardigan?  You could wear your favorite black outfit and simply pair it with a brown leather bag. Use the picture as a guide and see what you have.  You'll be surprised.

The look for less:  
Old Navy Dolman Sleeve Sweater in camel

J. Crew Matchstick Jean in Overdyed Black Denim
$98.  $79.99

Cashmere/Lambswool Scarf in camel on Amazon

Both camel and black are classics that never go out of style.
