Matching/Complementing Colours - How Much Is Too Much?
I would be interested to hear your views on "how much is too much" when it comes to wearing matching or complementary colours. I am especially thinking of accessorising.
For example, the other day I wore a pink shirt, so I decided to wear pink socks to pick up the colour of the shirt. But in that case I would probably shy away from adding a pink pocket square into the mix - for me it would be a bit OTT. But what do others think? Is less more with this sort of thing?

Less is defo more. In my younger days I had an obsession with matching everything. It's not that clever really!
I stick to a maximum of 2 matching items, possibly 3 if 2 of them are small accessories. So shirt, shoes, pocket square could be ok... I'd prefer to choose a contrasting square though (unless white)
