Is it okay to wear brown with black?

Q. Is it okay to wear a brown silky blouse with black dress pants? I think I have seen a mannequin with this color combination and liked it. This is for a casual type Holiday Party. It is actually a brown spaghetti top silky camisole with a brown shrug.
-Color Combination

A. Go ahead and wear the brown and black color combo. Many people thought you couldn’t pair black and blue together, but that’s no longer true too.  The fashion “gods” know we don’t have the time, budget or stamina to spend at malls looking to find the perfect hued match of browns or blues, so we rely on black to help us out.  The other suggestion would be to wear winter white pants with your brown ensemble.
