If you’d like to add a little color, try a mossy green or muted apricot to compliment the brown hues. A printed scarf goes a long way to add pizzaz to an ensemble.

Prefer black over brown? Pair charcoal wools with a subtle plum print. Mixing visual textures with slight color variation is super cool and modern.
