When In Doubt, Add Light Brown

Burgundy-and-navy is one of my favorite fall color combinations, but an outfit comprising just these two colors can seem visually heavy. The solution? Add a light neutral.

My go-to neutral is light brown, a natural complement to dark colors and one-note color schemes. When I am dressed in all-white or all-black, a textured light brown topper can brighten the outfit without having to incorporate bright colors. Or it can effortlessly lighten a drearier outfit, like it does here.
