Matchy-matchy! Lady Gaga matches hair colour to boots

If there’s one thing the fashion community absolutely DETESTS right now, it’s anything deemed to be too “matchy matchy”. Shoes that match your handbag? OMG, how can you go out in public like that? Don’t you know it’s all about COLOUR CLASHING now, you fashion Neanderthal? Belt matches your bag? Why haven’t you just killed yourself already? Because, seriously, if you’re not going to be “edgy” and “unexpected”, like the fashionistas of the world, then there is surely no reason to go on living.

This is why, if we were a regular fashion blog, we would surely think that matching her hair to her boots is the most shocking thing Lady Gaga has ever done.

Forget the “sheer top with no bra” thing: this is “brave”, and therefore totes acceptable. But the MATCHY MATCHY? Seriously, what would they say at Chictopia?

    I think this is a ridiculously stupid rule. Everything being the same color completely looks a little awkward, but bag+shoes/hair+shoes/etc. looks fine. Matching small things together or matching smaller pieces to big pieces can tie an outfit together, especially when otherwise there wouldn’t be a cohesive color scheme at all. While I’m not fond of Gaga’s hair color in these pictures, choosing to wear a pair of shoes of a similar color isn’t a problem.

      Yes, I think it’s silly to criticise “matchy matchy” too… I was reading a blog last week where everyone was absolutely APPALLED that some blogger was wearing a belt which was the same colour as her shoes. They just couldn’t get over the fact that she “didn’t realise” how “dated” and awful it was – fashion-victiming at its worse!

      Just to be clear, no one has actually said that it is (that I know of!) – I was making fun of the “OMG matchy matchy is SO WRONG!” attitude in general, and extrapolating it to say that the people who frown upon matching accessories would surely also frown on matching hair to shoes 🙂
