Most of us have been influenced by a mother who taught us when we were growing up that we must match the shoe color with the purse and belt. In the 80′s and 90′s, the fashion trends were focused on the theme of matching your clothes, accessories, shoes and the bag and sometimes the belt, all have to be the exact same color.
Nowadays, with all the color blocking, bright jeans, bold accessories and online exposure to different fashion inspiration, these hard and fast fashion rules no longer exist! However there is still a way to mix and match.
- It’s totally ok to mix metals, when accessorizing with jewelry. For example, wearing a gold necklace that you never take off because of sentimental value, Ok .. However, try to add on other elements to spice up the look. another colorful necklace, chunky rings, and studded, beaded and braided bangles….all together!
- Don’t fear to mix lots of colors and styles of jewelry together. Throw a little splash of color in with a fun shoes or scarf.
- Mixing navy and black is actually unique and I must say that lots of people won’t wear it together. Go ahead and try it but it must be done correctly. Find accessories that use navy and black in the pattern, like plaid or striped. Also, finding a great dress that already has color blocks of both colors is an easy way to wear these classics together.
- Finally, gone are the days of needing to wear a black belt and black handbag if you’ve got your favorite black boots or heels on. Mixing leathers is not just ok, but its encouraged!
