Gold, silver, fashion jewellery and old heirlooms – jewellery is the only domain where I feel comfortable enough to mix and match. When it comes to clothing I’m not as courageous, though. That’s why I always admired people, who seemed to ignore all “fashion rules”, and mismatched or mix ‘n matched all kinds of patterns, fabrics and forms effortlessly. Here are some of my mix ‘n match heroes…
That’s what I’d call “Mix ‘n Match for Beginners”. It’s easy to combine what the designer created to be combined. And leo print goes well with anything. (Photo courtesy of Modelizing.)
The high art of mix and match. By Dries van Noten. He is so good. I love the colours. (Photo courtesy of Style.com)
Not as colourful (despite the violet skirt-like thingy) but I love how she put different layers – oh, and the bag… (Photo courtesy of Street Peeper – and endless source of perfect mix ‘n match examples, by the way.)
By Street Peeper, again. I couldn’t not post this picture. Isn’t she beautiful?
Perfectly mismatched. Mixed patterns, but the colours go well together. I wish I wouldn’t use the word “beautiful” so often so it had more meaning here. The truly beautiful Marian Kihongo.
The queen of mix ‘n match: Susie Bubble – Style Bubble – in a less mismatched outfit compared to many of her outfits. But it’s not because of this why I love it so much.
