For most, fashion month can be a rather lonesome undertaking- it’s busy, fast-paced, and at times, just flat out exhausting. That’s why it’s always best to travel the four capitols- New York, London, Milan, and Paris with a friend in tow, a best friend to be exact. Dynamic, fashion-forward duos have been dominating since the days of Blair and Serena, and we couldn’t think of a better way to live up the endless string of shows, parties, and events to come than with your real other half.
Most trend-setting pairs are showing their love with coordinating outfits- a sure-fire way to be counted in by the street- style paparazzi as “click-bate.” The go-to gals for twinning style and longtime best friends Caroline Vreeland and Shea Marie, who walked the Rebecca Minkoff show in Chealsea yesterday hand-in-hand, are a perfect example of how to pull-off the trend without looking childish. Choose a common theme or color way or simply a similar silhouette so as to not go too matchy-matchy.
Tommy Hilfiger Fall/Winter 2016 and Monse Spring/Summer 2017
This trend has gone from the front rows to the catwalks themselves in a matter of seasons. It’s only day five of the Spring/Summer 2017 collections in NYC and we’ve already seen double at Monse and Tommy Hilfiger. Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim’s modern iteration of the classic white shirt looked especially daring on twin models with suiting details to define the waist and elevate the looks to evening wear status. At Tommy, the entire finale was comrised of duos decked out in the label’s famed red, white, and blue. Fresh silhouettes like streetwise track suits and cropped sweaters paired with hip-hugging jeans felt twice as dramatic- like a gang of patriotic cool girls.
As we head across the pond to London and beyond, consider staging a #twinning moment in the spirit of street-style fun.
