I have a ‘thing’ for colour matching.
I like to give my outfits a bit of cohesion. I’ve never been one for clashing prints or rainbow colours and still fully subscribe to rules about never wearing red and pink together. I know it’s ‘fashion’, but it hurts my eyes.
Sweater, American Apparel | Jeans, Topshop Leighs | Shirt, c/o Next | Jacket, Michael Kors via TK Maxx | Trainers, Ash c/o Sarenza | Bag, Mulberry | Ring, H&M | Sunglasses, Orla Kiely at Boots Opticians | Lipstick, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in Honey
I’ve resisted these Ash Bowie trainers for MONTHS, but finally caved when I realised I could pair them with my similarly pastel pink AA sweater. They arrived on my doorstep last week and a perfect sartorial partnership was born.
I’m pretty sure I get my love of colour coordination from my grandma, who isn’t fully dressed without matching her bag to her shoes. She wore a gold lamé two-piece with coordinating bag and shoes for my graduation and I’ve even seen her work top-to-toe tartan. She’s a Colour Matching Maven and taught me everything I know.
Do you like to coordinate your outfit, or do you prefer your clothes to clash?
PS Apologies for all the pigeon-toed nonsense in this post. My mum will tell me off when she sees these photos!
