The Perfect Match
A Singles’ Guide To Shopping
Life for a single twenty-something can seem hopeless in the love department but that doesn’t mean you still can’t find a perfect match. And no, I’m not talking Tinder, OkCupid, or Match.com, I’m talking a little retail therapy, the next best thing to having a significant other besides Netflix or Ben & Jerry’s. The benefit to this is twofold - you’ll look and feel better in your new clothes, which will therefore help you land a date! So where do we begin? Let’s start with matching separates. I’ve previously mentioned that I’m basically in love with this idea. I mean it’s literally the easiest fashion trend to pull off because it doesn’t involve any tricky rules for coordinating colors or mixing patterns. All you have to do is find a top and bottom that match - a task most five-year-olds could handle. Stores and brands like ASOS, Opening Ceremony, and Topman among many, many others all offer a variety of options for the twin set trend so you’ll have no shortage of places to shop. For this outfit, I found my perfect match with this playful summery shorts set and wore it out in Amsterdam for our first date. I chose a smaller embroidered print for a more subtle approach but you can experiment with bold prints to really make a statement. You can even keep it monochromatic like this recent outfit I wore here in a solid color palette. As you can see, there’s a lot of ways to pull this off. So what are your thoughts on this trend? Are you swiping left, or swiping right?
