I used to loudly protest about the clashing of brown and black - probably off the back of the time I once accidentally wore one brown boot and one black one after getting dressed in the dark/a hurry at university. Now, I'm a convert. I often find that matching a brighter, more red or orange brown works better than a deep brown such as this bag, but it's fashion - anything goes, really. A bright colour somewhere such as this scarf to stop yourself looking too sombre and you're away.
