Does your handbag need to match your shoes?
matching in the sense that they go together "yes".
in the sense that they gotta be by the same make and look alike "no"
i find it quite uninteresting when shoe and bag are matched and are onlyt worn as such
they need to go with each other in a way for sure,
but that doesn't mean they have to have the same color, same pattern, same material, same brand......and all those boring and old restrictions
Try to match your purse, shoes and belt. In colour ...
i really like white pumps with a black bag...it works since they both have similar bronze hardware...i dont know, it works for me
I, personally, usually match them in colour, but never do I buy them at the same store so that they are exactly alike! Tacky, tacky. But the bag and shoes don't necessarily have to have the same colour.. they could be different shades of the same colour family, or complimenting hues, like Pradaromance said. As long as they go along the same style-line and don't look completely outrageous (Ex.: turquoise heels with bows, puke green graffiti bag) I think you don't have to worry too much about it.
i don't like anything too matchy. looks kind of old fashioned to me, but works for some people.
some older ladies i see match their lipstick to their blouses! that's too much, IMO.
on the other hand, if your bag is in white cotton with flowers on it, but your boots are patent black leather with spike heels, it won't look right either, no? it's all about balance, i think
I haven't noticed this, but I think that could look super-cute! It all depends on the style/colour of the blouse and the look of the girl wearing it. If it's a youngish girly girl I think it could work really well. My grandmother is (and always has been,) a huge supporter of red lipstick and little else.
Typically yes, but sometimes if I've been carrying the same handbag for a couple of days and I'm passionate about that bag...then I'll just wear it and say..."whatever!" and go for it, matching or not!
Leyla me and you both
Matching handbags with shoes
[FONT="]Okay, I thought I’d find out what everyone else thinks... Is matching the color of your handbags with your shoes REALLY that important, if it’s even important at all? I've always matched them, but lately I really wish I could break myself of the habit...
Not important at all. Both should match your outfit, but they don't necessarily have to match each other
No, definitely not important. Although McQueen would like everyone to match their shoes to the Novak and other structured bags for his Hitchcockian look.
I miss the option "sometimes" at the poll...
well i match them sometimes and sometimes i dont...it really depends...so i dont think you have to at all...i think maybe sometimes its just an easy way out, so you dont have to think to hard when your getting dressed (i know im totally guilty of it!)
I'm SO sorry, I really should have added "sometimes" as a voting option. It didn't even occur to me...
yah...i'd vote for the sometimes.....
like "sometimes", "always", or "never"
I like your terms much better than my originals! I tried to change them, but to no avil... Oh well, next time!
i agree - 'sometimes' is missing.
sometimes i do & sometimes i don't; it really depends on my outfit.
Sometimes has just been added
