When choosing between a black and a brown midi skirt, the black option often reigns supreme for its unparalleled versatility and sleek appeal.
Black skirts serve as a canvas for countless looks, from casual to formal, adapting effortlessly to various color palettes and accessories. On the other hand, while brown skirts can offer a warm, earthy vibe, they may fall flat without the presence of dynamic patterns or textures to elevate their visual interest.
But there are many ways to style a brown skirt, particularly a midi one. Take a cue from Rachel Bilson.
On October 19, 2013, at Urth Caffé, Rachel Bilson was spotted in a chic ensemble featuring a Topshop cutaway roll neck top, Alexander Wang Erin boots, Karen Walker Deep Freeze sunglasses in Crazy Tortoise, and a Chanel Fall 2011 Boy large bag (Credit: WENN)
Rachel spent a day in sunny California wearing her brown midi skirt like the fashion pro she is. She styled it with a white sleeveless shirt and ankle boots. It also doesn’t hurt that she capped it off with chic sunnies and her covetable Chanel handbag.
