With lush brown locks and stunning green eyes, you can wear so many different colors. Selecting the best clothing colors for you is all about choosing the shades that create a complementary or contrasting color combination. Brown hair needs to be worn with shades that highlight or challenge the rich undertones. Pretty green eyes need to be enhanced and so should be paired with contrasting tones.


Red is the perfect color to wear with your brown hair and green eyes. Red automatically contrasts green eyes. This will make your eyes stand out and appear sharper and more alert. Red will also highlight the red undertones in your brown hair and create a richer, fuller look to it.


Blue is a good color to wear with your brown hair because it will naturally challenge the orange undertones in your tresses. Go for royal blues for a daytime event and a deep navy for a more sophisticated event. These hues will work well for green eyes, but lighter blues will work to bring out the reflective shades in your green eyes that little bit more.


Browns are a good way to add warmth to your look. Go for a lighter brown than your hair color to give your hair a shiny rich look. Light browns such as beige or taupe will also enhance the green in your eyes.


Green will truly enhance your startling green eyes. Select bright shades that have heavy yellow undertones. Warmer browns will strengthen your look and even allow your hair to look reflective and rich. Green is a good color to wear to strengthen a warm natural look, because it is a strong earth tone.
