It's autumn and there's loads of brown clothes around - so how to you nail it without looking, erm, shite? Kate Middleton gave us a demo of the trend in London today.
TIP 1: Mix and layer different tones - block brown is rarely a good look.
TIP 2: Prints like Kate's Orla Kiely dress are a good and easy way to mix your tones, as well as adding a little excitement to what can be a boring hue.
TIP 3: Brown tights are better when they're sheer, so go for a 40 or 60 denier pair rather than thick opaques.
TIP 4: Brown boots are a much softer look than classic black, so if you're aiming for a smart-casual vibe, go for brown with a small heel.
TIP 5: Keep shapes fitted and the details fun, to avoid looking like your nan dressed you.
What do you think? Brave enough to do autumnal brown?
