Warmer than black, more rock n roll than cognac, chocolate is a lovely dark brown that draws slightly on red shades. Easy to pair and all round staple, it’s a classic autumn colour that you’ll find pretty much everywhere.
And that’s why we love it: with its warm hues and icy highlights, chocolate brown goes with all our outfits. Denim blue, khaki, grey, beige, white, ivory, leopard print… It pairs beautifully with staple autumnal shades, for our great fashion pleasure. Come winter, it’ll complement wine red, navy blue and mustard yellow, and fast foward to spring it will pair easily with our floral dresses (add a denim jacket and bam, festival look), and will create a brightening contrast with our pastel shades.
A velvety smooth trend
As for style, you have so much to choose from this year as every year (these days make sure to check out mid-season sales for discounts from chillier days!): Icy heeled ankled boots, chocolate Converse, cocoa moulded chelsea boots, or chic leather rider boots, you’ll find enough to see you through all the seasons!
And seen as chocolate and shades of browns will still be on trend next year, and the year after, and the year after that ETC… You’re not really running any risks.
