Brown, insists the fashion world, is the new black and one doesn't need to be a caffeine lover to appreciate the colour that's taking style charts by storm.
It's warm, rich, elegant and flatters almost every skin tone.
Team it with black for a sophisticated combination, pair it with gold for a glitzy affair or just wear it by itself.
Latte to deep expresso, chocolatey to cafe mocha -- here's how you can use these gorgeous colours to plan your Friday night look.
