If you're wearing one tone (i.e., dark) you want to wear something that's a different tone, for contrast. You could wear tan with brown, or light blue, or cream, or even a *printed* top, with a touch of the brown color in it but that was mostly pinks or blues.

Purple goes well with black, but even better with a lighter shade in the same family. Your best bet? Buy a color wheel at an art, craft, or fabric store. It should have a diagram in the center that points to different colors in different ways - a line, a triangle, or a square. Colors in the same family but a different tone go together, as do colors *opposite* each other on the wheel (but make sure you do one lighter and one darker for contrast.)

As a rule, colors adjacent to each other don't look good together, such as red and orange, or blue and green.

Brown, gray, navy, and black are seen as "neutral" colors, and can suppor brighter colors with them - but be careful with brown and navy, as you need to wear "warm" colors with brown, and "cool" colors with navy.

good point

I was going to bring up the warm vs. cool colors issue. That is where the wine with the brown doesn't work.
