STYLE GURU STYLE: Patterned Head To Toe

I am not going to lie: I have never been one to go for matching top-and-bottom sets. I always thought that having all of the same pattern would be too overwhelming. The reality is that I just needed to find the perfect design and coloring, which I finally did!

Taking notes from Saloni’s pre-fall 2016 collection, I was inspired to try out a set of two matching pieces. What I love about this Saloni collection is how the patterns are mesmerizing rather than overpowering, and they bring the viewer’s eye all the way through the outfit. Usually people will pass by me and say, “I love your top!” or, “Your pants are so cool!” simply because it is hard to mix so many pieces together in fashion for everything to stand out. All of this changed when I took the plunge and got a matching set.

Wearing two pieces that are the same pattern makes a huge statement because it shows boldness and confidence. At the same time, it is important to keep in mind that adding accessories that tone down the outfit is sometimes needed. I wore my matching set with a black leather jacket and a big bag. These two pieces added an edge to an otherwise delicate outfit, and that is exactly what I wanted.

If you have ever thought about trying out a matching set, don’t be scared off by all of the pattern or color that it presents. It will make you stand out and feel #RAD.
