Anyone in the mood for chocolate, cinnamon, or root bear?
No color trend can truly challenge the power of the eternally chic black. But if you’ve made predictions based on the fall/winter 2021 runways, then it’s no surprise there’s a warm, earthy hue that’s going to make a powerful impression this season. You can call it chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, or, as Pantone says, “root beer,” but—snack terms aside—the ubiquitous color of the season is a rich shade of brown.
Filtered down from Acne Studio’s chic outerwear, Versace’s opulent designs, and Jacquemus’s tailoring, brown can now be found across all styles on the market. The below 33 examples just scratch the surface with pieces across athleisure, cozy knitwear, and dresses for special occasions. If you’re only willing to dip a toe into the trend, we suggest swapping in mocha or caramel tones with your footwear or accessories—they’ll look luxe and on-trend and seamlessly complement outfits, just like your go-to black accessories.
