Personal Shopper Skills

I’ve talked about B R O W N for a few seasons and most brands now offer MANY shades, so you’ve probably seen brown pop-up across the high street!!

As your personal shopper I’ve edited the best and organised in to 3 price points, depending on your budget


I’ll give you a bit of exclusive fashion insight….and some of you might not like what I have to say..

Brown, taupe & camel are actually WAYYYYYYY more flatter on most humans than grey!! Like, way better.

There. I’ve said it.

Ginger & Smart

As a colour expert, I’ve conducted 100’s of colour analysis’s so I’m talking from FIRST HAND experience and I know that lots of clients reading this will have witnessed this too!!

Even if you have cool undertones, so a SUMMER or WINTER, and grey should suit you, taupe generally looks better on 80% of you!!

This shows the taupe range from the coolest on the left to the warmest on the right:

Why Do I Like Brown?

I KNOW brown can be a bit scary or have unpleasant connotations (no more detail needed) but I’m telling you, it’s edgy.

It’s softer and richer than black meaning it’s less stark AND flatters more skin tones!

It also works perfectly in leather or mock leather because it’s less obviously *sexy* than black can appear

Move Over Black, There’s A New Shade In Town

Here’s all the rich shades of *BROWN* to consider buying clothes in:

So, if you haven’t tried this colour yet, how about rocking it in a more sexy way like these pleather or leather pants?
