Colors that make stylish accompaniments to brown pants include mint green, turquoise or teal, light blue, periwinkle and some shades of purple. Other colors that may be worn with brown include mustard yellow, golden yellow, pale yellow and cream or beige.
Many people find it difficult to be creative in matching colors and patterns to a pair of brown pants or slacks. The standard white, tan and cream seem a bit tedious, but many colors can be paired with brown to achieve an attractive outfit. Even basic colors become something special when dressing in shades of cinnamon, caramel, dark chocolate and hazelnut. Some fashion professionals recommend going to the paint department of the hardware store and matching color sample cards to find creative matches.
