Fashion trends have a funny way of coming back full circle. Old school concert T-shirts, flapper dresses and even ’80s-esque sequin embellishments have all been popping back up lately. Now there’s another Grandma-approved piece of fashion advice that’s definitely back in style — perfectly matching bags and shoes — and celebs are helping to make it happen.
1. Ashley Benson: Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson proves that mixing high and low is easily doable — so long as the color pops. Here, she matches her red sneakers with a choice Yves Saint Laurent cross body bag.
2. Reese Witherspoon: Reese takes the trend a step further here by matching not just colors, but materials as well, with her denim espadrilles and wicker bag. (BTW, wicker bags are also super hot right now!)
3. Kate Middleton: But if there is a princess (literally) of the matching bag and shoe, it’s the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. She’s had this trend on lock since she stepped into the international spotlight, and it totally, totally works for her — it’s part of a conscious effort to make sure that every look she’s photographed in is timeless.
And there is nothing more timeless than revisiting a classic trend that Grandma swore by.
