It’s a match!

Alessandra Ambrosio

While shopping for sandals for my mother in Palm Beach recently the salesgirl repeatedly made the point that your shoes should not match your bag. Huh? Doesn’t have to match I agree, but shouldn’t? I hate fashion dictums especially as I was standing there carrying a camel Birkin with matching K. Jacques sandals. I don’t set out to match my shoes and bag but like Alessandra above, I think it can look incredibly chic when they do.

  1. I love to match my bag to my shoes, it just brings a since of continuity to my outfits. Shout out to all the “matchy” girls out there!

  2. Agreed. Matching can look great. Maybe its not necessary but its certainly not bad!

  5. Sounds like the sales girl could benefit from coaching on customer service and fashion consultation. Btw, I love the nude look of the bag and sandal. TRES CHIC to say the least. I wouldn’t use the word “matching” I would say coordination but it would be determined by the entire look. In the future if you need help with that I would be happy to assist.

  7. You are right, but I think it’s bc most American women used to match the lipstick to the blush to the earrings so she is doing a backlash against that. But shouldn’t is ridiculous.

  8. I like it when something matches something in yr outfit. Pants same color as shoes, only then a mismatched bag would look nice.
