I don't have to match but I do have some things I won't do.. like black shoes and white pants. Just being short I feel that chops me down somehow, so whatever color line I make with my lower half, I try to keep that going all the way through to my feet. And yes, even if I am slopping around in tshirts and tennishoes, I prefer matching undies, its just a little nod to elegance and tradition...because in real life I rarely have time for either. :D

I definitely do not match my shoes and purses sometimes I like to wear matching panties and bras but that is only a once in a while thing.

It depends on the outfit. If I'm trying to go for retro then yeah I'll just wear a couple of colours so everything is tied in. Otherwise on more casual days everything is different.

Yes, it's in my blood to be matchy-matchy. It just is. And I'm proud of that. :)

Rarely. I prefer to mix-up the tones & colors.

I keep everything coordinated. I can't stand it when my bag doesn't match my shoes at all, it just gets me! Even when it doesn't match my belt I feel iffy.

I feel like this question has already been asked. My answer is still the same, Yes, I match.

I once was wearing a simple black dress and had electric blue necklace on. My friend goes: "You're necklace doesn't match..." I proceeded to ask her what color necklace SHOULD I wear to please her "oh so fashionable self" and she said black! I can't go head to toe wearing the same shade of color or matchy matchy things. I hate wearing blue shirts with jeans! I do like mixing casual things with dressy. And splurges with vintage. And browns and blacks (gasp! my friend would be dying!).

I just wear black most of the time, so I don't have to worry about matching!

Wow I am totally not, I go more for a well coordinated outfit than matchy matchy. I own this cute little poka dot dress from spring, but every time me and my mom go somewhere she will see something with black and white polka dots and be like,"oh buy it" Its so disgusting. She'll see a pair of flats or a tote bag and she just wants me to get bringing up the dress. I was looking at headbands once and and I bought this white one with little brown polka dots and it was cute with its little bow and she goes, "Oh you should buy a black and white one for your dress." So I finally blew up. I was like, "Mom I don't do that. That is so disgusting. I don't do matchy matchy especially not with prints." Sometimes she is just too much, I seriously just don't trust her when she wants to buy me clothes.

I'm trying to match less. My natural inclination is to be waaay too matchy matchy, but it's fun to step outside of the box.

I'm big on coordinating, not necessarily matching. But I absolutely cannot wear brown shoes with a black purse. Even if I'm just running out to Target, I search for coordinating colors. I pretty much only buy pink, black, white or nude underwear so my bras match. I have to wear suits for work, so I buy the Isaac Mizrahi Target ones that have a blazer, skirt, shorts, pants and dress so I don't have to worry about everything matching. I get a little nutty about looking coordinated and polished.

I don't always match, but I love to do so when I can. I tend to do it in a very vintage and classic way (think the show Pushing Daisies). I actually have a friend who nicknamed me matchy poo-poo because I'm always so coordinated. One thing though, I never do it in a boring way. Matching must enhance the outfit, not deter from it.

I try to coordinate clothes and shoes, but not really match stuff. Or sometimes, I just don't match at all and wear whatever I feel like :)

I don't like matching things too much. That's kind of boring and when you mess around with combinations you might find different combos that look great together that wouldn't be expected. I've been inspired by street style on fashion blogs recently.
