Here’s something to add to your fashion bucket list: if you once matched your shoes to your bag, try matching them to your bra instead.
We saw the unexpected matchy-matchy look on Rosamund Pike at the world premiere of The World’s End in London yesterday evening. Her deceptively demure ensemble was spiced up with a shock of pink from her bra, which was peeking through the eyelet details on the front of her Victoria Beckham spring 2013 collared dress. Clearly, that wasn’t enough “shock” for Rosamund as she further highlighted her peekaboo bra by matching its hot pink color to her t-strap sandals.

The effect wasn’t lost even when she turned her back to the cameras because her dress’ see-through eyelet panel extended all the way down the back.

Underwear showing through clothing is almost never a good look, but on Rosamund, we’re convinced it’s a cute one to try! Will you be trying this mix and match idea yourself?
