Okay, let’s tackle some basic questions first!
Why Do Couples Coordinate Their Outfits?
There can be several reasons, but all of them stem from one big thing: your willingness to display your affection for one another and to prove that you can be flexible and considerate with each other. Happy couples dress alike!
Furthermore, there can be specific causes for the couple to wear similar outfits:
- To announce their relationship if they’ve just entered into one.
- To announce something major, for example, if the couple is expecting a child, they might wear ‘First Time Mom’ and ‘First Time Dad’ t-shirts.
- To show appreciation for your partner’s hobby or profession. Example: T-shirts that say ‘One Lucky Fisherman’ and ‘Best Catch of His Life.’
- To celebrate holidays together, like Valentine’s Day.
How Should Couples Match Their Outfits?
There are a few tips and tricks that should be minded in this respect:
- Learn to work together. Respect each other’s personal style and preferences and try to bend to the other’s choices.
- Don’t compromise your individuality, but don’t be stubborn, or coordinating outfits won’t work for you.
- Go shopping with your partner. It’ll be an excellent opportunity to swap ideas. You might find something amazing together that works for both of you.
- Be subtle about it. Don’t overdo it.
- Overmatching can sometimes be creepy, so go for ‘coordinating’ instead. This means wearing hints of a particular color in your outfit while that color dominates your partner’s outfit, etc.
