Perfect Buys For Fans Of The Matchy-Matchy Look

While I am personally a fan of colour blocking, I know some ladies still love matching their handbags to their shoes – or is it the other way around?

Regardless, the age-old trend is back for Fall 2017 and here are some of the best buys for you to co-ordinate with right now – Legally Blonde, anyone?

#1: Fendi
Polyester dress, $305, Issey Miyake Pleats Please, www.matchesfashion.com
Issey Miyake Pleats Please – no-fuss apparel – no ironing required, maximum visual impact. Studded leather tote, Celine
Celine fan? We all are and this tote comes bedecked in metal studs of various sizes. Perfect for those who want a non-basic work bag Polyester blend top, $1,030, Rosie Assoulin, www.matchesfashion.com
Can you say perfect summery top? Patent leather pumps, Dior
Dorothy herself would be envious of these perfectly cherry red kicks. Viscose-brass earrings, $675, Saint Laurent, www.matchesfashion.com
These tasseled earrings are a classic at the house that Yves Saint Laurent built and they can never go wrong in my book. FYI, they’re also on Female’s April 2017 cover. Leather jacket, Acne Studios
I mean, how often do you get a kickass leather jacket in red? Agate necklace, $845, Givenchy
Say bye to Givenchy’s former creative director Riccardo Tisci with this magnificent specimen. #2: Blumarine
Oversized silk brooch, USD$686, www.net-a-porter.com
Pin this massive brooch on your shoulder and you can be Carrie Bradshaw too. Cotton seersucker dress, $59.90, Uniqlo U
My favourite piece from Uniqlo U’s spring 2017 collection, this dress is just.so.pretty. Leather booties, USD$430, Martiniano, www.mnzstore.com
How cute are these booties?! Plus points – they’d be so cute with the Uniqlo U dress. Leather backpack, Chanel
So you can’t get your hands on Cher Horowitz’s yellow plaid suit from iconic ’90s teen flick Clueless, but with this buttery yellow backpack, you sure can emulate her spirit. Silk-blend dress, $7,070, Gucci, www.matchesfashion.com
If this banana yellow Gucci number is good enough for Emma Stone, you can bet it’s good enough for you too. Plex calfskin flap bag, $3,030 (excluding strap), Prada
Need a matching bag to go with the dress? Prada’s jaunty version goes perfectly with it. #3: Delpozo
Glass and metal earrings, $590, Oscar de la Renta, www.matchesfashion.com
Personally I either like my jewellery to be really dainty pieces or really sculptural objet d’arts. These Oscar de la Renta babies fall into the latter camp but somehow comes across as delicate with its oh-so-pretty petal pink hue. Acetate sunglasses, Givenchy
Rose-tinted glasses, enough said. Cotton smocked shirt, $650, Teija, www.matchesfashion.com
I’m liking the somewhat precious Victorian-ish vibe I’m getting from this smocked shirt (very Little House on the Prairie) but I guess the modern way to wear this would be to leave a few buttons undone and pair with straight cut jeans. Taffeta skirt, $1,690, Peter Pilotto, www.matchesfashion.com
Perfect for show-stopping queens. Leather satchel, Miu Miu
Loving the Power Rangers revival? Here’s a bag to go with it. Leather booties, $525, Bimba Y Lola
