Brown - the whole spectrum from buttery sand to salty caramel - is perhaps the only trend from the spring summer 2019 collection that will genuinely impact your life. Not least because it’s the singular thread that ties the rest of the season’s trends together - it colours Dolce & Gabbana’s leopard print, it tones down Versace’s neon and it synthesizes the modern possibilities of Batsheva’s prairie dresses. And, if one was to walk into a Mango store right now they would be faced with wall-to-wall brown.
Elegant and understated, brown is the oft-maligned sister of cream and cousin of black that’s been downplayed as ‘boring’ for too long. It’s simple when in a biscuity shade and lush when it veers towards orange. In basic terms, it’s the chicest thing to wear this season. It says you’re grown-up and sophisticated, yet modern and expensive. We’re sold.
At Mango, an oatmeal blazer is a perfect counterpart to a mahogany skirt, while a pair of khaki cowboy boots is the ideal partner in crime to a cow print shirt and tortoiseshell bag. Unlike other colours, maxing out on brown is near impossible. Layer up the various iterations of this shade without fear. Make an impact by playing cinnamon against peanut, coffee against bronze and taupe against wheat.
