Matching accessories to your outfit is probably something we all do, all the time. Finding the right bag, sunnies, jewellery, etc. to pair with whatever we’re wearing at the moment is a fun and creative way to express ourselves yet to set the final touch to our outfits. But have you ever thought about matching your outfit with a drink? Well, we have and it’s actually pretty fun.
Imagine a sunny Friday morning, you’re sitting at your favourite café wearing a brown tailored suit rented from Hack Your Closet (obviously). Sippin’ on a creamy cappuccino and just enjoying the moment and the fact that you’re matching your outfit, et voila, it’s a mood!
Or, you’ve gathered up with your besties at the city’s most hyped roof top bar to welcome the weekend. You’re feeling fabulous wearing a yellow breezy summer dress paired with Margarita in your hand. See, matching your drinks to your outfit can really add a special touch to any event. And if you fancy taking memorable pictures for Instagram, this will certainly be the icing on the cake!
Here’s how we match some of our favourite drinks this summer, and how to make them. If you decide to throw a little party on your balcony instead of going out.
