“One of my dearest friends is getting married in a few months and she’s asked me to be a bridesmaid. Super! However, she had requested that the bridesmaids wear some kind of brown suit instead of the usual dress. Now, while I really appreciate her originality and desire for us girls to be able to use our outfits again later (and really actually use them), I have been having the hardest time finding something cute, appropriate, and cool enough to be worn in Texas in July. We can choose pants, skirts, maybe even some tailored shorts in any shade of brown.” – Brown Frown

First off, you must be a really good friend, because that is a really ungodly bad color scheme to go with for a wedding. You’re fighting against two difficulties here: 1) The color and 2) the heat. So it’s imperative that if you’re being told to wear a “suit” of some kind, you have lightweight layers. And secondly, it’s likely that you’re going to want to take the blazer off as soon as the ceremony portion of the wedding is over, so it’s imperative that you have something real cute on underneath. So I say, focus on that portion of the outfit above all else. And in the event that you can’t find anything that you’re 100 percent thrilled with, remember that you can always cover up a less than thrilling dress with some fun statement jewelry and bold shoes, and hey, it’s only one day out of your life.

Quickies: Emma Watson Calls Brown Bullying BS & Zooey Deschanel Knocks Off The Frisky!

  • Emma Watson posted a message to the media and her fans on her personal web site to say rumors she is leaving Brown because she was cruelly teased by students is untrue. “I have never been bullied in my life and certainly never at Brown. This ’10 points to Gryffindor’ incident [a "Harry Potter" reference that kids supposedly said when Emma answered a question correctly] never even happened,” Emma wrote. “I feel the need to say this because accusing Brown students of something as serious as bullying and this causing me to leave seems beyond unfair.” Emma said she’s not sure if she’ll be turning to Brown in the fall because she hasn’t decided yet and requested people stop speculating.

Controversial Combo Looks Fab On “The Biggest Loser” Host Alison Sweeney

When Annika posted about how to wear black and brown together, some of you still couldn’t get behind the color combination. Commenter Chicka Chicka Boom Boom even said, “This is one trend I will definitely not be following.” Well, last night, while watching “The Biggest Loser,” I noticed that host Alison Sweeney paired a brown leather belt with a simple black dress for the weigh-in. She looked great, and considering that she’s a pretty mainstream dresser (not in a bad way, she just doesn’t wear anything too crazy), I’d say the rule forbidding these two colors from being combined is gone for good.

Style On The Street: Brown, Brown, All Around

If you’re going to dress head to toe in one color, at least mix up the textures, like this gal who has a thing for deep maroon-y brown. Notice how she’s wearing tights that have lines on them instead of solid ones? Good call. Also, it’s a good thing she’s blond. If she were a brunette, I’m not sure this look would work — there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Keep reading »
