Sometimes a couple is so in sync they finish each other’s sentences. They embody the vision of two hearts that beat as one. They’re so cute and perfect together… and on date nights even their outfits complement one another. #couplegoals
To achieve this rare pinnacle of style, there are a few simple guidelines:
- Don’t be too matchy-matchy! Nothing says, “We tried too hard” like two people wearing the same look, unless you’re going to a Twinning Costume Party. Tend to the details and try to stay in the same color palette.
- Be yourselves! If your personal style is trendy-chic and his style is carefree-casual, meet in the middle and use elements that reflect those individual styles. Bring the looks together by coordinating through the use of color or texture.
- Have fun with your fashion, it’s not a contest! You won’t receive a trophy for being voted the Best Dressed Couple (unfortunately) but, excepting the challenge of creating a cohesive look between two people is, for some of us, extremely gratifying.
