How To Master Couple Wear Without Being Too Tacky | Clozette

The joy of being in love is in the idea of having someone to share our lives with. But sometimes, we take having a better half literally and manifest it in the form of matching OOTDs. Don't get us wrong, though, we're not here to judge! We actually applaud the boyfies and hubbies who confidently match clothes with their girls coolly. 

Now, there's no need to wear exact matching pieces all the time. Keep on reading to see our top tips on wearing coordinated outfits with your beau without going too overboard.

--------------------------

Think about your colours


Wearing coordinated outfits does not necessarily mean going for the same colours. One way to get the matchy-matchy feel minus the colour coordination is by playing with contrasting or complementing shades instead.


When in doubt, go basic

Just like you and your S.O., black and white simply work wonders together. So if you're on the lookout for a sleek and chic casual couple wear, never forget 'monochrome magic'.

Variation is key

Found a pattern, texture, or style of clothing you want to sport with your man? Don't settle for a full-on match; try to stay true to your style and sport the piece in different ways instead.


Just own it

As time passes by, our minds have a way of being in sync with our significant other's unintentionally — and we don't just mean in style. Whether it be gestures, habits, or expressions, investing your time in a relationship with someone makes it inevitable to pick up certain mannerisms to the point that you mirror each other's movements without even noticing. So if you do end up sporting an unplanned matching outfit, we're sure that just like anything else in your relationship, you can rock it together!

The week is coming to a close. We're looking forward to what next week will bring, especially since we're so close to celebrating the day of hearts, but we also can't help but look back at what happened in the past week. There have been fun new things to discover, but there is also one that is not too peachy. Despite that, we're ending the week with more learnings, and we're looking forward to new ones. Let's recap the week together, shall we?

Calvin's New Look


You've seen the logo in countless undergarments sported by models and celebrities before, but now it has a new look. Calvin Klein has changed their logo, but it's still as cool as ever.

Long live, Lady Gaga




Lady Gaga performed at the halftime show of Super Bowl LI, and it was spectacular, to say the least. On top of it all, she also slyly addressed discrimination issues in the U.S. during her performance.

Did you used to sport shirts, shoes and other articles of clothing with logos on them when you were younger? Well, if you still have them, it's time to whip them out because logo-mania is coming back. The bigger the logo, the better!

Have you Jamsu-ed?




This beauty hack surfaced late last year, but it looks like it's not going to go down any time soon. This Korean trick, which requires you to put baby powder on your face before submerging it in cold water for 30 seconds, is believed to be the secret to a flawless base of face makeup.



Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder



The collaboration between Estee Lauder and fashion designer slash former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is available again. Get your hands on the collection, which will feature new shades as well as previously released ones, while you can.
