Sometimes it seems easiest to just throw on all the same color and you’re out the door. Like black, for instance (everyone is guilty here).
Garance is a major participant of doing just that, too, with, well…white. Ok, so head-to-toe actual colors are tricky, but what’s even more rare is the elusive matching set. As in those ensembles designed to be worn together. Similar to a suit, but not confined to the likes of a jacket and pant, and generally in a stripe or refined print or pattern.
I love how girls are wearing a matchy-matchy set today though. Kamaryn’s look is so feminine with those delicate stripes and sweet wrap tie belt to accentuate the waist. While Jessica’s pinstriped vest and pant combo (plus tee!) is pretty perfect, very much Giorgio Armani meets Annie Hall, meets a t-shirt. And, what I think makes Lizzy’s set work, is that brilliant stark white eyelet!
In fact, they all kind of reflect the whole all-white or all-black ensemble by keeping the set in a neutral color palette. A less-is-more approach (as if that’s revolutionary) But that’s the key! Such a simple trick of the eye to elongate the figure!
What do you think, are matching sets back in?
