Filed Under: Matchy-Matchy Me
I could not be more adamant about matching recently. Which, strangely enough, puts me at odds with most of my fashionable peers; clashing is all the rage, clashing-centric editorials condemn matching to prove their point that it is all about clashing, not matching. All the same, I am becoming a matching freak. I blame it first on Betty Draper, who I am convinced is happy with the ease she must have when choosing her sweater sets, skirt suit ensembles. Who is going to try to tell me that Betty Draper isn’t scintillating in a skirt suit?
Secondly, I blame pieces like the above from No.21’s 2010 Resortwear collection, or below Maria + Corneja 2012 Resort. There is nothing better than this in my mind. What’s more is the upcoming Fall 2011 ladylike trend has me thinking that matchy-matchy is on the rise, encouraging coordination of intricate patterns and textures.
