Like Thelma and Louise, blue and brown are the ultimate color pairing, especially when it comes to clothes.

And brown might very well be the new black, so why not shake-up your typical color combos and give this duo a go.

Khaki with royal blue, chocolate brown and pale blue, chestnut brown plus baby blue: yes, yes, and yes!

Whether you’re looking for a menswear-inspired look, a casual yet classy outfit, or a Pretty Woman-esque style you can wear to work, these three brown and blue outfit ideas are sure to inspire you to bring some (more) brown into your closet. 

Chocolate Brown + Pale Blue | Menswear-Inspired Look

Pairing blue jeans with a chocolate brown jacket or shirt is the easiest way to give them color pairing a try.

And this mix of shades meshes so well together that you hardly realize there are multiple blues and browns woven throughout the outfit.

Don’t be afraid to style these colors with black accessories, as they serve to keep the focus on your fit.

Swapping the light blue button-down shirt for one in either lavender or pale yellow would also look really sharp against the rich brown.

And as the weather continues to warm up you could wear loafers with socks instead of ankle boots.

By styling a skirt and blouse in the same shade of khaki you can create a sleek monochrome look.

You can then work off this neutral base layer as if it’s a dress and use the rest of your pieces to add contrast and life to the look.

It also sets the stage for this royal blue track jacket to become the centerpiece.

Track jackets are such a fun item to style as they instantly add casualness to the dressiest of looks.

They offer an easy way to mix and match styles because they pair so well with jeans and heels, a skirt and blouse, or even worn under a blazer.

When trying to style one, if you think of it as a super casual blazer its style possibilities become endless.

Having your outfit’s foundational pieces in a neutral tone also allows for more vibrant accessory choices such as a bright yellow wristlet, sports sunglasses with mirrored lenses, and iridescent Chelsea-style boots.

Chestnut Brown + Pastel Blue | Pretty Woman-esque Fit

Who doesn’t love the iconic brown and white polka dot print Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman?

While pairing such a print with a plain white t-shirt is a safe bet, you can make for a much more interesting fit by substituting it for a dark brown and white striped button-down shirt.

Thus proving polka dots and stripes can be friends.

Finish the look off with an oversized blazer in a subtle shade of blue.

Sky blue compliments these rich, earthy browns beautifully and creates a clean and crisp outfit ready for a lunch date, dinner party, or day at the office.

I have to go shopping now. 🛍
