This is a love match

The Sunday Independent - - FASHION -

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.
