Street style, twinning: 10 cute shots of BFFs in matching outfits
Remember in grade school when you and your bestie dressed like twins? Yep, this was trending long before Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid hit the scene in their matchy-matchy designer looks. When I was 12, my friend Kelly and I bought the same swimsuit—a one-piece with an abstract fish design on the front—to debut on the dock at summer camp. Two blondes plotting to make a splash. Our twist? Mine was hot pink and Kelly’s was white. It’s a fashion moment seared in my mind—like all great street style looks, it gave us insta-access to the cool girls’ club. We had gold member status at camp—for a few days, anyway, until someone else showed up in a barely-there bikini and stole our thunder.
Cindy Crawford’s recent Vogue Paris cover with 14-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber (who is signed with IMG models) is bringing twinning fashion back into the spotlight. The biker jackets! The hoop earrings! The hair! It’s a major twin win. Meanwhile, fashion month (for Spring 2016 and Fall 2016) had the style set also playing doubles. From New York to Paris, they came two by two outfitted as carbon copies or as complementary opposites. Grade school is back in session, so grab your BFF and check out these 10 stylish ways to wear the twinning trend.
