This is a love match
I USED to cringe when I saw couples dressed alike. And if my mom wore anything that remotely resembled what I was wearing, it would drive me to tears (and my wardrobe to change).
Now couples, mother and daughters, father and sons, are going out of their way to dress alike. This trend, called twinning, has become increasingly popular amongst celebrities.
When Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake attended the American Music Awards in 2001, rocking matching denim on denim outfits, we thought it was cute but not to be encouraged.
In 2018, celebrity couples like Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West and Gabrielle Union and husband Dwyane Wade are often seen together in matching outfits.
And it’s no longer seen as an adolescent thing to do but more of a fashion statement. Or is it a statement of love?
To clarify, twinning doesn’t necessarily mean wearing the exact same clothes. Outfits could have similar prints, colours or styles to qualify as “twinning” outfits.
Here’s a look at our favourite twinning celebrity moments from moms and daughters to inseparable lovers.
Beyoncé and her 6 year-olddaughter, Blue Ivy
This mother-and-daughter team are the Queen and Princess of twinning.
When Beyoncé was pregnant with twins Rumi and Sir, she shared a picture of herself and Blue wearing matching Dolce and Gabbana floral dresses.
At the Wearable Art Gala this year mom and daughter both shimmered in gold dresses.
Kim Kardashian West and 5-year-old daughter North West
The selfie queen has taken the twinning trend to a whole other level. As she does with just about any aspect in her life. It seems every time the mom of three steps out with her eldest, North, she manages to dress them alike.
In 2016, the mother-daughter duo attended husband and dad Kanye West’s concert wearing matching shimmering metallic silver dresses by Vetements.
DJ Khaled and 2-year-old son Asahd
DJ Khaled and son Asahd have nailed the guys’ twinning trend. Undoubtedly our favourite fatherson twinning duo. Whether they wearing matching tuxedos on the red carpet or baggy tracksuits on little Asahd’s very own Instagram page. Their most memorable moment was when father and son attended this year’s Grammy Awards wearing maroon velvet tuxedos.
Gabriel Union and husband Dwyane Wade
These lovebirds both have an easy-going and relaxed style. So it makes sense that they casually rock denim looks together or get sporty with matching hoodies.
