One of the celebrities who brought a lot of style to the usually relaxed atmosphere of the San Diego Comic Con was Ashley Madekwe. The ‘Salem’ actress managed to find the perfect balance between her upscale style and the laid-back vibe of the event with her matching separates. Her checkered black and white knotted top and matching high-waisted culottes ensemble was especially fetching.
But wait, haven’t we seen this look before? The matching separates, which are from the brand Self Portrait, were first spotted on Willow Shields at the Nickelodeon 28th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards.
Who do you think wore it better?
1. Ashley Madekwe

The actress tamed the loudness of the matching top and pants by accessorizing with simple pieces like her thin-strapped sandals and black clutch. We also love how she styled her hair in big, vintage-style curls.
2. Willow Shields

The actress added more fun to the look by opting for a pair of purple pumps and a matching purple clutch.
We think both ladies rocked the Self Portrait matching top and culottes. Ashley took the classic route while Willow gave it a more youthful vibe.
