What color goes good with tan pants

Brown pants can look equally classy just like black pants. However, finding the right color combination with brown pants is not as simple a task as you might think. We’ll suggest some colors that will match very well with your brown pants.


Do not team a forest green color shirt/blouse with brown pants, unless you want to end up looking like a tree. However, if you’re confident about pulling off this look, you can venture into this experiment at your own risk!

For those who are tired of the typical monotonous blue and black pants, but are not willing to venture too far, brown can serve as a sophisticated, yet classy color.

Of course, comparatively, brown is not as color compatible with other colors as black is. Hence, you have to be bit careful while choosing colors with brown. While white and brown is the perfect pairing, there are other subtle tones too, such as cream, off-white, pastel colors such as pink, orange, peach, etc., that can look cool with brown pants. What’s more, brown comes into the category of both, casuals and formals. Whether you’re out on a fun expedition, or at a business meeting, brown is a more-than-acceptable color.
