To Match or Not To Match? That Is The Question…

Elle magazine recently published a article saying, “Color Coordinating is Not Chic, Says Science”. Apparently people don’t like things to matchy-matchy. While I appreciate the research, they are a little late to the game. What science has “proven”, is what fashion blogs and street style have been rebelling against for the past few years. Mixing their stripes and florals, textures and tones to mismatch is a match these days! On the contrary researchers found that people didn’t really like clashing combos either! So what’s a fashionista to do?

Mismatch while matching of course! My look today combines the mismatch with a black skirt and brown heels….gasp!! I then matched my tawny leather watch with my heels to pull the look together.

FashionBillie Bit: When mixing and matching it’s always a good idea to build around a neutral. Like my chambray (blue jean) top today!
