WORN OUT- Love (Mis) Matches

Not sure if these two are a couple or not, but how cute are the color-coordinated layers here? Her plaid shirt and green tank perfectly complement his shirt with green striped vest.
Speaking of which, let's talk about the mustard/puke green men's vintage shirt for a moment shall we? It's a hipster nerd classic at this point and you know three things about the guy who wears it, especially when paired with spectacles and shaggy hair: 1) he collects old vinyl, 2) he probably lives in Silver Lake, Echo Parque or downtown and 3) he's cooler than you. Her pink plastic earrings throw a tacky wrench in the whole geeky chic of it all, but considering where we shot them -a colorful craft fair- they make style sense.
So, is matching with your man a do or a don't? Our hubby is an outdoorsy T-shirt and jeans type, while we like loud, '70s era frocks, so it's not really something we ever even consider, but we think complementary -not copy-cat- dressing can give a couple a sweet cache.
Speaking of nerdy cool and such, check out this week's Nightranger
