Wearing a matching top and bottom – in either a print, or a bright colour – is this summer’s in-the-know look. Ok, I know, summer has almost ended, but until the temperatures are quite high, please allow me to wear pants and if they come with a matchy matchy blouse, I am even happier! What I like about this style is definitely the high waisted bottom and the blouse off the shoulders: I think they are both very sexy, but in a girly way. The new matchy-matchy is not the return of ladylike suiting, but derives instead from a more irreverent catwalk ancestry. For autumn, Lulu Kennedy’s Lulu & Co range includes boxy mini skirts with matching trapeze swing tops, “which we’re calling Jackie O sets”, says Kennedy. “They are fun, and new, and they make getting dressed so easy. I mean, spending hours putting outfits together – who has the time for that, these days?” So, dear readers, let’s do it!
I am wearing: shorts and blouse Ann Taylor, sandals River Island, bag Ann Taylor, ring Yves Saint Laurent (the blue one) and Asos (the white one), watch and bracelet Kate Spade.
