Guest Post :: How To Nail Couples' Matching Outfits

It seems like the more time you spend with someone the better you become at predicting their thoughts, how they will react to something, and even subconsciously wearing something similar to what they have on every now and then. When you think of couples’ matching the first thing that probably comes to mind is identical outfits {yikes!} but in reality it is more of a well-coordinated appearance that plays off each other. And when it comes to some occasions, it is good to be on the same page dress wise. Today Peter Minkoff has put together a few tips on how to flawlessly nail couples’ matching outfits.
The more time you spend with your significant other, the more you’re likely to start to look alike. The most prominent part of the similarity will probably be the way you dress, and whether you subconsciously or consciously decide to start coordinating your outfits, it’s essential that you know exactly how to do it, to make it the next fashion statement. Check out the next few rules that'll help you nail couples’ matching outfits because the couple who dresses together stays together. 

Break The Monotony

If the first thought that comes to mind when we say “matching couples’ outfit” is Britney and Justin’s denim ensemble, you need to think the other way, immediately. Just because it’s matching, it doesn't mean you need to look like twins. As long as you have a statement piece that will break the monotony between an all-black or white-on-white ensemble, you're doing it right. Whether it's a belt in a zesty vibrant hue or a statement print on his top, as long as it creates a focal point, you won’t look like each other’s mirror face.

Match The Formality

One of the main rules to looking like a well-dressed power couple is to make sure both of you adhere to the same dress code. If you decide to go with business casual wear, and put on a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a classic blazer to match your ballerina flats, it's important that your significant other doesn't go the other way with full-on casual sweats and sneakers. If you need to dress for a formal event, it would be a great idea to wear a matching gown and suit. You can find amazing tailors all over the world, and if you happen to be from the Land Down Under, you should look for the best tailor in Melbourne who can make you a tailor-made suit to match your partner’s gown. However, if one of you goes with a black suit, the other one should go with white or some other contrasting bold colour to really make a statement.

Coordinate Colors

In order to project a stylish, matching aesthetic, pick a consistent colour palette for both you and your partner’s outfits. Earthy tones are particularly chic for fall and winter season, and they can provide a range of choices that can work great together. Pick a colour palette instead of just sticking to one shade, and choose outfits that complement one another. A monochromatic look is always a safe choice, making sure your colours will never clash. It will also look great in photos if you’re going to wear it to a wedding or some other formal event. It’ll add a certain dose of class and poise to an entire ensemble, making you look like you’ve just stepped on the red carpet. To achieve a consistent and unified appearance, pick corduroy for both of your outfits, and instead of focusing just on color, coordinate the fabrics as well. 

Pick One Central Piece To Work Around

Choosing one piece of clothing and working your way around it to make two separate, yet perfectly coherent ensembles is another way to nail matching outfits. Both of you can, for example, pick a leather jacket as your must-have item, and dress it up uniquely. Where one can wear a blush nude blouse and a pair of skinny jeans, the other one can easily style the jeans up with a t-shirt in a vibrant hue to add an exciting edge to your ensembles. Feel free to wear matching shades and belts, and let your accessories speak for the both of you. 

Final Thoughts

All you need to nail couples’ matching outfits is a bit of creativity and edge. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your wardrobe and look for the next best thing that will separate you from all the other couples and make you the next big thing around town.
