Matchy Matchy

I have been a fan of matching everything for as long as I can remember…one of my earliest memories is being about 4 years old and fervently insisting that the ribbons in my hair match the ribbon lace on my socks. Hmmm not much has changed.

One of the best matching tricks is: shoes the same colour a your pants make your legs look longer. Yes it’s true! And who wouldn’t want longer legs, right? The colour extending all the way from your waist to your toes means there’s continuity and the eye is tricked into seeing longer legs.

Ladies know about this rule (thank you nude coloured pumps) but it may be news to even the most sartorial boys out there.

So now you know! No need to stick with black thanks to all the amazing coloured pants and shoes available for men at the moment. Examples seen here from Alfie’s Friend Rolfe.
