Root Beer: A Closer LookAlfred Angelo has been known for their creative color names. Names like “Beyond the Sea”, “Once Upon a Time”, and “Moonlight Waltz” are some good examples. That being said, when the designer decided to add a new brown hue to their collection they decided to name it “Root Beer” – a dark brown hue that other dress makers often call chocolate or espresso.Sour Suggestions on Accent ColorsAlfred Angelo's Root Beer is a dark brown color that is a perfect base tone to be accented with lighter colors. Ivory, tan, and cream are perfect choices here, but so are fresh spring hues like petal, sunflower yellow, pool blue, mint, and aqua. That being said, we love seeing our brown ties paired with light cream suits and soft pink boutonnieres.
