Black + brown is one of my favorite color combos, but I usually stick to safe cognac tones - the contrast makes it easy to mix with black. But today's look proves that chocolate brown can work with black, too. A bit of leopard makes the transition seamless, since it contains both colors. And as a bonus the scarf adds warmth to a v-neck sweater on a cold day. Would you ever wear these colors together?

Sweater is 6 years old (I estimated the price), scarf is 3 years old, shoes and purse are a year old, skirt is recent.
