Wearing matching shoes and handbags is still trend in fashion society. However, it is not necessarily an obligation to follow. You don’t always have to follow what the other do. You can wear shoes and handbags that have totally different color. Or, you can also go fr partial matching. The reason why matching shoes and handbags is still trend today is because many popular fashion brands started making matching shoes and bags again recently.
Another reason is that matching shoes and bags trend overtime. When you take a picture of yourself wearing matching shoes and bags, it will become long lasting. You will still look stylish even when you look back at it 15 years later.
So should you wear matching shoes and handbags all the time then?
The answer is no, you don’t have to wear matching shoes and handbags all the time. However, you can do it based on the occasion. For example, you use the ‘matchy matchy’ style for formal, elegant events. You can still look good even without totally match your shoes and handbags. You can be more playful to mix and match your outfit without looking messy.
Before trying anything extra, you can try partial matching first and see if it fits your style. For example, wear floral handbag in yellow, red, blue, and red then match it with plain shoes in one of the colors of your bag. You will not look totally matched but still look harmonious and neat.
You will not look messy even with the floral handbag because you balance it with plain shoes. However, the shoes still have little detail to match with the handbag which can make you still fabulous.
You can also consider your outfit or clothes to wear unmatched shoes and handbag. For example, your skirt has strip pattern in various colors such as green, red, yellow, orange, white, and pink. Then, you can match your outfit with shoes in green and handbag in pink. This is still partial matching when you don’t necessarily match your shoes and bags but you have match little details coordinated with your whole outfit.
Another way to wear unmatched shoes and handbag is by wearing plain white shirt with a denim. Then, make a statement for the rest of your outfit by wearing a bag or shoes in totally different color such as in orange, red, or bright green.
