Ever seen two people wearing the exact same outfit, carrying the exact same bag with the exact same shoes? Well, I’ve seen many of those and some with the exact same hair scrunchy too. ‘Twinning’ is no more just a concept but a trend. One that is picking up big and spreading like wild fire. However, what most people forget while blindly following this trend is that subtlety is the key. While sisters Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian looked like clones wearing everything identical from top to toe, mother-daughter duo Kim Kardashian and North hit bull’s eye with nothing ‘matchy-matchy’ except their hairstyle. After all, the purpose here is not to look like doppelgangers but instead making fashion statements.
Make note, twinning is not only for the ladies. In fact, nowadays a lot of couples have also been making appearances donning scarves with the same print, identical pieces of jewellery or shoes of the same style or colour (preferably a pop mint or aqua). While these are accessories that one keeps changing depending on the attire, a watch is constant. So, why not pick a set of twin watches for you and your ‘better-half’ and pen your own style statement? Some of the most stunning luxury watches could be spotted online at Ethos Watch Boutiques.
