Brown is such a sumptuous color, it has become something of a fixture in our closets. There's just something about a brown satin skirt or a pair of chocolate-colored leather pants that looks so rich, we make it a goal to incorporate these layers into our wardrobe. It appeals to maximalists and minimalists alike, and when brown separates are combined into a monochrome look, now that's a sartorial delight.

The key to mastering a monochrome moment is to vary the fabrics, shades, and silhouettes of the separates. Sure, it sounds easier said than done, but fret not because we included some styling options ahead. Whether it's a corset top tucked into wide-leg trousers or a midi knit dress worn under a dramatic trench coat, the magic is in creating visual contrast that adds interest and allows individual pieces to stand out. While brown clothing has year-round appeal, it tends to come to life in the fall and winter. Perhaps this is because we have a penchant for a more muted palette during the cold seasons.

Scroll on for some stunning looks that interpret brown monochrome in fresh new ways, and for the foundational pieces that will help you achieve your perfect broutfit. (See what we did there?)
