Brown: The colour of luxury

Brown according to designer Neha Mehra “is a colour of luxury”. This colour has seen global acceptance as she says, “There has been a shift towards natural and earthy elements. It has always been considered a classic neutral in the fashion world. It’s something that can be styled very easily and in many ways, and can add warmth to any outfit.”

For the model-off-duty look, wear a blue denim skirt, white shirt and add a brown tote leather bag. Keep your accessories in the same tone, as you match your shoes, belt and watch to the bag.

“To elevate your espresso brown look, opt for monochromatic style. You can also pair this colour with neutrals, like beige or white, for a sophisticated vibe,” shares designer Kaushal Goenka, adding, “Accessorise with gold or bronze jewellery to complement the warmth of the colour.”
