It was, according to fashion folklore, American Vogue’s Anna Wintour who coined the phrase “matchy-matchy” about women who overly coordinated their shoes to their bag, scarf, gloves etc. My how things change. Now matching your top and bottom half, as with this cute-as-a-button skirt and top - is the key to giving your look maximum impact. In other words, it works. Yes, we know the rules keep changing, but that’s part of the fun.
Skirt, £345, top, £289, both Tibi (Available at Fenwick Bond Street)
