Brown boots are the new black and here are ten pairs to prove it

Brown boots are the new black and here are ten pairs to prove it

Beige, caramel, gingerbread, syrup, mocha, whiskey…. move over millennial pink and Gen Z yellow, there’s a new favourite colour in town and its good enough to eat


In varying shades of chocolate, beige and biscuit, brown is quickly overshadowing millennial pink as the in-demand colour of the year, and from couture runways to cool suburban cafés, brown leather is everywhere right now.

It’s on the Chloé runway, blending together penny-coloured co-ords with busy nostalgia 70s prints; Dries Van Noten accentuated punchy shades of blue with contrasting, oversized brown hold-alls and exaggerated collars while Rochas harmonised shades of fawn, biscuit and of-the-minute animal print in an effortless way. Cult Gaia has replaced its iconic Insta-famous light bamboo bag in deep, rustic shades; perfect for those chasing winter sunshine. And on Instagram, fashion entrepreneur Pernille Teisbaek orchestrates her autumn wardrobe with comfortable knitwear in delicate beige with aged denim and a vibrant brown-leather tote, while model Gigi Hadid stays on duty in denim hotpants, a rich brown mohair jumper and melodramatic hair.

If you’re ready to incorporate this season’s key-colour into your everyday wardrobe, then look to stylish footwear. Rich shades of brown will work equally well with neutrals and pastels (yes, really…try it) so they’re far more versatile than you may think. Soft square toes are a favourite for autumn and winter, so these leather ankle boots from Uterque, below, tick that trend box. And when you’re more accustomed to these new shades, why not raise the stakes and team your new beloved boots with a contrasting trench, like that from Rochas? Ready to make the swap from black to brown? Step into the season in style with ten styles that are good enough to eat.
