Breaking up your Matching Set by Wearing the Bottom Piece Only
Quote of the day: “When the winds of change blow, some people build walls, and others build windmills.” Chinese Proverb
I have to be perfectly honest in saying I’m not a fan of matching sets. Even though I over analyze everything else in my life, I still haven’t figured out the reason for this aversion. But maybe I’d like them better by breaking them up. And here’s where we tried just that!
Considering I found a plethora of matching sets in both Nancy’s & mom’s closets, I figured there are still many of them out there in other women’s closets. This post will show the bottom portion of the set styled with non-matching pieces. The first in the series was the set by itself (here) and then I showed the top of the set styled (here).
50’s Matching Set: Since the skirt is truly high waisted, I tucked in my t-shirt and paired it with a short jacket. I actually have quite a few of these shorter jackets, so I should have a lot of options to go with this skirt.
60’s Matching Set: Since the skirt is basically black & white, I thought a bright blue top would make the outfit pop! Besides, Nancy wanted to wear her Lala’s ring!!
70’s Matching Set: This is one of those outfits my mom said “I would never wear this”…but she did acquiesce and say, “but it is what all the young kids are wearing.” I want to know who doesn’t think she’s young?
Do matching sets remind anyone else of garanimals?
And then some current tops to pair with that skirt from your matching set:
