Brown V. Black

I am about to invest in some pricey leather boots. I have a black wool coat that I wear most often. Do I buy dark brown boots, or black boots. which would look better and or match better. Do you wear brown boots with a black coat? Help, I dont know what to do! I really love the cherry brown color in the style of boot I want to get, but will it look right with my black coat? what do you think? I need a fashion expert!

  • Both brown and black are neutrals and while they don't match...they go together fine. Buy which every you love the most.

  • Buy 'em both! :D Just kidding. But seriously, if you can afford to, why not? My first suggestion is black, but I think black and brown can go together just fine, depending on the shades. And some shades of brown are so dark, they're almost black anyway!

  • Whatever you like best will be fine. Aren't the boots this season divine?

  • Buy them both. I think it looks sloppy when you mix brown and black together (like brown belt and black boots).

  • Get the color you want! The two colors work great with one another. Brown & Black is definitely a great combo & you can't do wrong with either. If you are leaning more toward the cherry brown, then that's the color I would choose. They will be fine with matching anything black that you want to wear.
