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!

Thursday: STYLE STEAL

This Thursday is STYLE STEAL day!!  This outfit is proof a girl can look hot, hot, hot and still have cold hard cash in her wallet.

A leopard belt is the must have accessory.  By adding this fierce piece to your wardrobe you can spice up any outfit in a second.  Plus it can go with almost any color.  At less than $20 we have our first STYLE STEAL!

Don’t you just love this necklace?  It reminds me of a knocker on one of those old mansion doors.

To stick with the animal theme I added my jewel eyed tiger bracelet.  Accessories my friend! They can take a plain pair of white pants and  red sweater to fashionable fast!

These white jean leggings are great for tucking and a STYLE STEAL to  boot. He, He!  Right now they are on sale.  Buy 1, get 1 for $29.90.    I do caution, go a size larger than you regularly wear.  These did bunch a bit at the knee and I had to stretch them out.  No sausage knees here:)

With all the cold hard cash saved on my outfit, I bought cupcakes!!
