When you hear the term “matching couple outfits”, the images of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in denim at the 2001 American Music Awards probably come to mind first. Over the years, celebrity duos have adopted pairing looks on the red carpet and in everyday life; Justin and Hailey Bieber were recently praised for their cool and coordinated approach to dressing. As a result, many of us are slowly turning into each other, at least in terms of clothes.
The innate desire to wear only the most comfortable clothes to feel confident, coupled with the obvious lack of places to go right now, makes it easy to move on to the next hoodie. But, apparently, the thought of exchanging cabinets with the people close to you goes beyond that. In fact, a relationship expert has pointed out that coordinated dressing is a normal, unconscious action that can occur about six months after a relationship.
Whether you’re proud to be part of a consciously matching couple, or just want to navigate the trend without going too far, we’ve put together a short style guide to help you do just that. For a complete pairing, look at combined outfits such as the best-selling matching hoodies and sweatpants from Pangaia, which are available in different sizes and colors so that you can combine and combine them. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with an oversized T-shirt with a retro emblem, worn with classic denim jeans, a look that works regardless of your gender identity.
Or follow a tip from our editor and keep your style similarities subtle and simple by combining just one piece, namely sneakers.
