A wise person once said that the only BS we need in our lives are bags and shoes. Joking aside, the co-coordination of the right accessories can certainly elevate your outfit and pull everything together. This Fashionista here definitely proves that with her fun matching bag and shoes set from beloved Italian fashion designer, Valentino.
Indeed, many designers recently highlighted this accessory trend during New York Fashion Week; a matching red and brown bag and shoes set was seen in Hugo Boss’ resort 2016 collection, while matching floral bag and shoes sets dominated kate spade New York’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection. Ultimately, when this trend is done right, it can instantly create a more polished and chic look.
So, what exactly did I mean when I said “done right”? Well, for the critics out there who are afraid of looking too matchy-matchy, make sure to pair matching accessories with simple clothing and neutral palettes to avoid overwhelming the eye. Like in the case of this Fashionista here, she let her colorful, studded bag and shoes set do all the talking, pairing them with a neutral white crop top and midi skirt that won’t clash. To complete her ensemble, this Fashionista added a simple gold collar necklace and funky rimmed sunglasses that pair well with the gold hardware on her bag, as well as the studs on her heels.
How To: If you want this Fashionista’s fabulous outfit as much as I do, recreate it by wearing a matching bag and shoes set and making them the focus by pairing them with simple, neutral basics. Remember, your bag and shoes do not even have to be sold in a set or from the same designer; you can still get this look with any bag and pair of shoes in the same color or pattern!
