we’re halfway through the week and continuing on with our summer retrospective. today’s repost is your favorite one from July: how to wear matching separates. this is one of my favorites posts from the summer, because, as we all know, there’s a bit of a fashion taboo surrounding matchy-matchy. totally understandable, but we’re all about breaking fashion rules over here at style at a certain age. below, we’ve rounded up a collection of some of our favorite matching separates from the summer. they’re mostly similars to the outfits we’re featuring below, but i think you’re going to like them.
while i am on my quest for the perfect summer top, i decided to head to the archives to find a few of my favorite matching separates. as you’ve seen here before, i love to pair matching separates together. you get more bang for your buck when it comes to outfit combinations because you can easily create the look of a dress, romper or a jumpsuit. i know many of you avoid jumpsuits and rompers due to the extra time spent in the bathroom. but pairing matching separates together is a perfect way to create the look without the hassle. here’s how to wear matching separates.
if you love bold, bright colors with a splash of pattern, then you are gonna love today’s post! ‘cuz summer is all about FUN. and pops of color just brighten your mood. i know, i know, neutrals can’t be beaten when it comes to versatility or that chic factor. but i’ve always thought fashion should be fun. and what’s funner (okay that’s not a word) that a bold and bright outfit?
what i particularly like about a matching skirt and top is that they act as a dress for a no-fuss-no-muss look. but when pulled apart they are independent separates that can be mixed and matched with your wardrobe. that’s a win/win in my book.
