Being ‘matchy-matchy’ is back – how to nail the tonal look, by Jane Moore
IT’S a bit “matchy matchy” is one of the most withering put-downs in fashion and refers to when your bag and shoes are an identical colour to your clothes.
But tonal dressing is another story, it involves dressing in one general colour, but using different tones and textures for a modern look that, done correctly, can seem effortlessly stylish.
As green is my favourite colour and also happens to be the shade of the season, the tonal outfit I’ve chosen is a dark green leather skirt, teamed with emerald green heels and a mint green, pussy-bowed blouse in an eye-catching geometric print.
The skirt would also look fantastic with a brighter green polo neck, while the blouse could also help glam up a pair of dark green jeans.
There’s plenty of options to mix without being “matchy matchy”.
