One of the most exciting things about being in love is declaring it to the world, right? Dressing up in matching styles when going out gives a sense of pride and confidence to the both of you and deepens the bond like nothing else. However, wearing the exact same outfit can be a bit boring and embarrassing sometimes. Additionally, the same ensemble may not suit the both of you equally well. Worry not, friend, because we have you covered with these interesting outfit-matching styles that you can rock with your partner or even with your best friend or sibling- becoming the ultimate power-duo!
Choose outfits in similar styles
This one’s kinda obvious, and yet it can make a big difference when people properly use this method. When going to a formal or casual event, of course you’ll be dressing up accordingly. But if you want to appear as a stylish pair when you’re just going out together or having a photoshoot, rocking the same look is one of the best ideas. Instead of dressing like you’re both going different places- one to a red-carpet gala and the other to Walmart- coordinate your outfits. You can both choose a cute and bright style, or aim to look like a power-couple with sharp formals. Whatever matches your vibe!
Matching colors or hues
Again, a pretty common style, but there are so many ways you can experiment here! This is probably one of the easier ways to match outfits, because most people have at least one item of each color in their wardrobe, so deciding one color on which to match should be easy. Be it blue denims or a bright, summery yellow, color-coding your outfits can instill a beautiful sense of connection in your hearts, even when you’re surrounded by many people. You can always choose to go with similar hues, like pastels, to look subtle and yet together. Finally, you have the option to pop out in complementary shades- colors that are different and still look perfect with each other, much like your relationship!
Identical fashion item
Not all of us like grand or flashy displays of affection, ok? Sometimes we just want to keep a small reminder on the both of us that we love and belong with each other. If you have such subtlety in mind, then try incorporating one item which you both carry with your separate outfits. It can be anything- identical sunglasses, ties, shoes, cute beanies, matching turtlenecks, or classy trench coats (these are pretty popular); the world is your canvas. Admit it, this is a pretty hassle-free and cool way to match while also shining in your individual style!
Matching a classic or custom theme
I can already see the glimmer in your eyes, because yeah, you can go as simple or as overboard with this idea as you’d like; deciding a theme is up to you, after all. You can always choose from a range of classics like black and white, red and black, retro, neon, etc. If you’re feeling a little more creative, choose a theme that has some meaning to the both of you. It could be based on your favorite t.v. show characters, or a specific culture, or a past or future time period. Even if other people don’t get it, who cares? It can be an inside joke shared by the two of you as you waltz the streets flaunting your crazy but matching outfits.
Custom jerseys or t-shirts
Yeah I know, some of you might be thinking, “Eww! That’s cringey and childish!” Well, this depends on how you customize the clothes, doesn’t it? You can create a clever sentence that starts on your t-shirt and ends on your partner’s. It can be something totally lovey-dovey, or something funny- it’s your t-shirt so you be the judge. This look may seem a little extreme to others, but I think it’s an adorable and witty way to claim your love for a particular person. Also, it is a foolproof matching technique because no one else can possibly be wearing the same thing as you two- individuality (or duality?) at its finest!
