There are several reasons why some couples decide to coordinate outfits. For some, it might display their love for each other. For others, they need to match outfits because of an event. Whatever the reason is, here are five ways to plan your outfits together.
Match The Same Accessories
If you want to coordinate outfits without wearing the same clothing, accessories are the way to go. A nice way to coordinate outfits with accessories is to wear the same shoes. For example, wearing the same pair of sneakers, which you can dress up in two different ways. If you and your partner are a bit more courageous, wearing the same shoes with a matching pair of dress socks is optimal. You can also choose to wear the same shoes but with two different pairs of socks. The possibilities are endless.
Another option is matching accessories like watches or rings. This can be a nice touch if you want to keep the coordination to a minimum.
Go For The Same Theme
If you are going to a special event or occasion, it makes sense to match the outfits. It is also to avoid one of you showing up underdressed or overdressed. If one of you wears casual pants and the other wears a fashionable cocktail dress, this can look very mismatched. Instead, you can pair a tuxedo with a nice cocktail dress. An alternative is also wearing blazers. Here, one of you can wear a blazer with some nice trousers, while the other one wears a blazer dress.
Do Color Coordination
When going on a Valentine’s Day date or anniversary date, it can be nice to color-coordinate. The keyword here is monochrome. This essentially means that one partner will wear a certain color, while the other one will wear that color in lighter or darker nuances. It will give a nice matching look that compliments each other while still giving a certain contrast.
It is crucial knowing about the color wheel when dressing up. When looking at the color wheel the colors across from each other are also known as complementary colors. For example, one of you could wear a blue-based outfit, while your partner wears an orange outfit. There are also other color combinations are red and green, and purple and yellow.
Base The Outfit On One Identical Item
Some couples like to wear a certain item they share. It could be a specific shirt, a shared hoodie, or something else. If you want to wear a special outfit, that exact item could be the basis of the look. Let’s say you have a matching band T-shirt from that concert you went to together. By wearing that T-shirt, one of you could wear the shirt with pants, while the other person could wear it with a skirt.
Wear eachother’s Clothes
An essential part of being in a relationship is wearing your partner’s clothes. This can be a T-shirt or a hoodie, which could be oversized on the other person. Wear a hoodie or T-shirt with some nice-fitting pants or a skirt.
