Pantone has released their colours of the Fall/Winter 2017 and today we will look at two browns, Butterum & Autumn Maple. Both lean away from the traditional khaki or dark brown but will fit right in for the fall season especially. We will focus on brown as a whole as well because I am a champion of bringing it back. If you choose the right brown you can make it look great. But first, here are the other 9 colors of the Fall/Winter season.
Starting with the title image the essential white dress shirt is again a go to with the dark brown patterned tie and a green pocket square.
This look varies slightly from the above image with the tie and pocket square. The tie is the same fabric as the suit, where the pocket square is the essential white on top of the essential white dress shirt. White is clean and it is the perfect pairing for any outfit, we suggest having a few white dress shirts in your wardrobe and dry clean them the second they get dirty.
This brown jacket is paired with a khaki double breasted vest with a lapel as well as the khaki pants. Playing with tones of the same colour is the easiest way to put together an outfit, which is also done in the light brown shirt with the white collar. It is always great to add in a little colour as well which is done here with the green patterned tie. Again this look is topped off with the essential white pocket square.
This is one of my favourite looks I own with the three piece suit, light blue shirt and paisley copper and blue patterned tie. The goal is to always tie everything in or compliment, this look ties everything together. Baby blue herringbone pocket square not in the photo.
The always dapper Dejon Marquis rocking the Autumn Maple suit jacket. The colour itself is bold so it is toned down with a white/brown patterned dress shirt and a brown tie. He also has paired it with the khaki pants and brown belt.
