LBD-A Case for the Little Brown Dress
There was a time many years ago when I had a thing for brown clothing. In my closet there was a brown short-sleeved balloon top I wore for an entire summer, a collared button-up with cream-colored polka dots I kind-of wish I still had, and a pair of cocoa brown linen pants.
There was also a pair of Nine West leather booties with a square toe that I would totally wear today, and I’m sure there were a few other things.
However, I don’t think I’ve ever owned a little brown dress. I’ve made it to my 30s with a number of little black dresses (and white dresses too), but hardly have I considered the lesser-worn brown option. That is until I came across this chocolatey mini while scrolling through the Reformation sale.
Suddenly I’m falling into the lure of this shade all over again. It’s perfect for end-of-summer vibes and just-right for the beginning of fall. I can already see myself wearing it over an off-white turtleneck and block heel ankle boots. And perhaps I’ll team it with a cozy knit and tights come winter.
And just like that, this LBD becomes an easy, year-round staple.
What do you think? Are you a fan of the hue?
