Renewed attention to Queen Elizabeth’s fashion choices has brought “monochromatic style” back into the fashion discussion. There is a less flattering term for it, however–“matchy matchy.” These days it’s often used as an insult for women without enough imagination to add an element of surprise to their outfit. In the sixties, however, completely color coordinated outfits were all the rage. I remember getting my shoes dyed hot pink to match my dress when I was in my step sister’s wedding.
This woman personifies the matchy matchy trend. It makes me wonder which came first. Did she buy the suit to match the shoes and bag or the other way around? Don’t you wonder what her closet looked like? Was pink her go-to color, or did she have similar matching ensembles, including shoes and bags, in a rainbow of shades? Not even the Queen, with her neutral shoes and bags, went to such an effort to color coordinate.
