Today’s topic of discussion is no new trend (like Drake saying “no new friends” but replace friends with trends…you feel me?) The matching set is something our mothers wore back in the day, when people actually bought “outfits.” Then for so long, any sort of matching looked like you were trying too hard (especially if there’s any pairing of a red bag with red shoes…something I despise to this day). Now there’s this new way of matching, and it seems to be sticking around for quite a while.
There are two types of people in this world [that don’t go to Coachella] — you’re either endlessly scrolling through your Instagram crying on the inside with an extreme case of FOMO or you think the event consists of a bunch of posers who don’t even care about the music and you prefer more intimate concerts anyway. Regardless, let’s see what everyone wore this year. Shall we?
It’s funny that for quite some time, I pretty much refused to wear flat shoes. Then when loafers and oxfords came along, I rarely wore heels. The reason for never wearing flat shoes is that our options were limited to traditional ballet flats, which let’s be honest…are ugly. But if loafers and oxfords aren’t your thing and sneakers are too sporty for you AND you still need an excuse to ditch your heels…I have the perfect solution.
We’ve heard it a million times — “you can totally pull that off” or “there’s no way I can pull this off” or “only she could pull that off.” But what do we really mean by this? How can one person “pull off” something while someone else cannot? More importantly, why can’t you?
