You've probably heard of that age-old fashion rule to always match your bag with your shoes. While color blocking definitely works to make your life easier in terms of creating a sleek and put-together look, it doesn't have to hold true all the time. After all, rules are made to be broken.
Just take it from Maxene Magalona—in an adorable blush pink ensemble, no less.Her shoes and her oh-so-covetable Hello Kitty sling bag just happened to be in contrasting shades of black and white. Now, while your accessories don't have to perfectly align all the time, if you're still one for a coherent outfit, the trick is simple: Make sure your shoes and bag at least hold details that go with the rest of your look. Even the tiniest ones count, like the pink floral applique on Maxene's bag and the similarly colored design on her black mules, both of which perfectly accent her all-blush LOTD, making for a fresh and clean style all around.
