On The Street... Brown Jersey Dress, Farmers Market

I have seen so many "little brown dresses" this summer. Did I miss the memo that said brown dresses make a tan looki better?

Okay, I'm going to attempt to answer the brown question . . . could it be the J. Crew effect? My teen-aged daughters shop there, and chocolate brown seemed to sell well there. Of course, that wouldn't explain brown's popularity in Gotham. Perhaps it really does have something to do with a tan.

brown is the new black....but black is the new brown.

Bottega started the trend for the little brown dress and it looks fresh for summer and a nice change from black.

I wear a lot of brown. It's more natural looking, and makes you seem more friendly. Also, it does make me look a lot darker.

Sart, I was just looking at the Fashion & Style section of tomorrow's NYT and Bill Cunningham's photo spread. The subject is streets filled with black, of course, and brown, which was very fashionable in the 1930's.

speaking as a redhead, i love the brown phenomenon. i'd also like to mention that brown doesn't just complement tans, it also complements the slight 'burnishing' and additional freckling that passes for tans among we MC1R-recessive folk....

As someone who cannot ever, EVER tan (unless going an uncomfortable lobster pink counts as a "tan"), I have to say that a good chocolate brown works for me, too - tan or no tan.

It also works for my sister, who doesn't tan either, but isn't quite as pink as I am. She has a light brownish tint under her freckles, unlike my pink.

This all leads me to conclude that chocolate brown is one of God's gifts. Is there anyone who doesn't think they look good in brown - and why not?

ha! that is so funny...i just bought one of these a couple weeks ago.

i typically prefer black, and i hate hate hate "chocolate" brown, but if you find the right shade...the little brown dress does truly bring out the tan!

i really don't think black is the new least, i really hope not.

To paraphrase Coco Chanel, style is when you notice the woman, more than the dress. The girl's allure shines through.

My wife looks smashing too in brown. I approve!

I think brown looks less dour in the summer. Less like a Sicilian mamma in a neo-realist flick, ya know what I mean?
