The Art of Vintage Matchy Matchy

As a child I remember my Italian grandmother in full matching garb. Hat and handbag with the same coloured coat was always necessary for a woman to look elegant and chic. I also noticed as I grew up other woman following suit- especially vintage characters from films.

Margharet Thatcher, Ava Gardner and even Her Majesty the Queen loves a colourful matching handbag and shoes (and why the hell not?!) It’s a classic style which looks effortlessly chic.

Here is my vintage matchy matchy look of the week, a 1950’s Horrockses playsuit with headscarf and slip on mules by C-Label from Pinup Girl in Burbank. Teamed with a pair of vintage oversized Audrey Hepburn style glasses and I’m good to go!




P.S Don’t you just love this pink wall I found along Melrose Avenue? Below are also some other ways to way matchy matchy in a vintage style that suits your needs- enjoy!
