Mostly matchy however I do sometimes push it when I am just feeling like I need to stand out.

I like to mix it up but look put together. Don't like being matchy matchy, I like to be alittle more eclectic but not obnoxious! haha

I am totally in favor of clashy. Obviously looking like a bag lady isn't stylish, but I can't stand the idea of everything I'm wearing matching perfectly. I love the idea of looking awesome and put together, but still eclectic. I think SJP's look is a perfect example. I love it, and would totally wear. I guess that puts me in the minority, but I love looking thrown together and windswept and amazing. I think thats what the clashy look is. Sometimes if it's overdone, it can look a little too much like you just threw anything on, but I enjoy the hit or miss of it. Great fashion sometimes happens on accident.

I prefer something towards the middle...Contrasting, that's it. A color that stands out, but not a'la sore thumb.

I thrive on clashy. A little edge here and there, making a skirt into a shirt, using a necklace as a headband, there's nothing funner!

I fall somewhere inbetween. I feel like some days I've very matchy and put together and on others a few pieces clash a little. I probably lean more towards matchy.

I'm definitely a mixture of matchy and clashy. I'm not the kind of girl to match her shoes, shirt, bag etc, I do like to mix things up a bit.

I find it incrediby hard to be clashy without having a statement/simply fab piece...otherwise it just looks junky.

SJP socks are a bit too much: she looks like a drag clown...

I like the outfits on the right better in the clashy category though. I just wouldn't do them in those clashy colors. I would do them more matching.

I'm obsessed with everything looking clean and looking right. I don't think I could ever do the clashy thing.

I'M MATCHY b/c I like continuing a color scheme from head to toe..... I have tennis shoes in every color combo... thats my signature... but sometimes I like to be quirky and not match!

I'm mostly matchy, with enough clashy thrown in to make it interesting. What the hell is SJP wearing??
