Way Too Matchy Match

January 16, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

“It’s way too matchy match” is a phrase I use so often that even my kids know what I mean!  My pet peeve has little to do with color.  To me style should look effortless and when the pieces you’re wearing are too matchy match it looks intentional.  Take for example my favorite pattern stripes. I always have a striped tank, a striped scarf, or a striped sweater (like the one below) on hand whenever I feel something is a little too matchy match.  My general rule of thumb is, if it’s going to be a matchy match kinda outfit I’d rather go the monochromatic way and use the color head to toe.  Intentional?  Heck yeah but it’s a minimalist style that so chic – it supposed to be intentional.  Below I paired one of favorite striped sweaters, polka dot denim top and ankle zip skinnies.

What I’m Wearing:

Striped Sweater – $19.99 from Forever 21

Polka Dot Denim Top – $24.99 from Forever 21

Ankle Zip Skinny Jeans – $19.99 from Marshalls

Modern Square Bag c/o meet mark find it here

Shoes $70 at Yesstyle

Watch (also seen here) c/o meet mark and you can find it here

Aviator Sunglasses – $9.99 from Ross

Vintage Triple Chain & Compass Necklace (also seen here and here) c/o Twisted Silver you can find it here
