Ladies, listen up because a new trend is taking the fashion world by storm and you’re going to want to be a part of it. Long gone are the days when the phrase “matchy – matchy” had a negative connotation. Matching is back and it’s here to stay. Remember the stereotype that only grandmas and soccer moms wear matching sets; well it’s gone for good.
Thanks to huge celebrities like Taylor Swift and Jessica Alba, matching is making a huge comeback in all the coolest circles. The best part is that the trend has taken on a life of it’s own and matching clothes are no longer dowdy, plain or boring. It’s all about matching crop tops with mini skirts, shorts and slimming pencil skirts. Taylor Swift, who always looks exquisite, credits her elegant style to her matching pieces.
Here’s how to get in on the trend yourself. Since the weather is so warm you can actually combine the matching trend with another major trend right now which is crop tops. Taylor Swift is almost always sporting a crop top with a matching skirt. The look is not only super cute, it’s perfect for a tremendous number of occasions from lunch, to running errands to a night out or a date.
Almost all major stores ranging from Forever 21 to TopShop are brimming with matching sets right now so make sure you check them out. You can also find matching sets with shorts and tops for a flirtier look. Don’t be afraid to try out a bold print, a bright color or an unusual cut. This trend is all about experimenting and finding something that suits you best and makes you feel great!
The best part of this trend is that you can put so many different twists on it. You can make the look mod or you can make it look very modern. Another thing to keep in mind is that you don’t have match by wearing two pieces that are the same exact print. You can match by wearing two pieces that are the same color, the same print, or the same material.
Just remember to break up the outfit with some neutral accessories for balance! Let us know what you think of this trend below in the comments!
