When was the last time you were like, "Oooh, I want that in brown?!" Yeah, I thought it might have been a while — or maybe even never. Brown definitely has the qualifications to be a neutral, but it is eclipsed by black, navy, grey, and even olive. Don't get me wrong: I love olive. But what's so bad about brown? How have we neglected it to the point where it's now only acceptable in shades of camel and cognac?

Personally, I vote for bringing back the rich chocolates and deep browns, and Refinery 29 is also putting all you brown-haters on blast today. In fact, they even point out that Pantone's color of the year, Marsala, is actually brown-based. The hue is definitely due for a comeback and here are 13 pieces to help you do that.
