Gone are the days when arriving in similar outfits raised eyebrows. Today, terms like "twinning" and "matchy" are displayed like badges of honor. After all, why stop with one stylish outfit, when you can have two? It makes for great Instagram photos, too! One such couple who received—and lives by!—this feed-worthy memo is Gen Z influencer couple, Clare Inso and Chezka Carandang.
The content creators make sure to immortalize their memories by snapping dynamic photos that exhibit both their sartorial choices and the going ons of their twenties. Apart from their fun travels both locally and abroad, even everyday errands have been documented on their feeds. The result? A stunning visual diary that feels candid and unstaged.
Twinning doesn't always happen by chance, of course. While their styles both lean to more casual pieces, Clare tells Preview that Chezka's job as a pilot entails that she stick to more smart casual items, whereas Clare would be able to experiment with more laidback styles. They do, however, adhere to the same principle of dressing in more neutral and monochromatic hues so as to easily blend and not clash with whatever backdrop they find themselves in. Afterall, Chezka says that more than showing off their 'fits, they want to tell stories through their content.
If coordinated outfits are something you would like to try with your significant other, then read on as we share low-key twinning tips we've seen from Clare and Chezka.
Below are 10 low-key twinning outfit tips, as seen on influencer couple Clare Inso and Chezka Carandang
1. Determine your color palette.
While Clare and Chezka prefer the stick to the neutral agenda, you and your partner can choose a scheme that fits your personality better.
2. Don matching prints.
Apart from wearing the same color, dressing in your favorite print is an easy and surefire way to make a coordinated statement. While stripes is always a classic choice, a fun tie-dye pattern is perfect for sunny days!
3. Tie your 'fits with a bold accent color.
For a low-key yet seamless integration of your OOTDs, choose a bold accent color that would tie your looks together. The pop of orange in the couple's outfits makes them standout on their own and together.
3. Subscribe to a vibe.
A common misconception with coordinated outfits is that it has to look exactly alike. FYI: It doesn't have to! By dressing with a certain attitude in mind, two seemingly different outfits can still look in sync. Case in point, the light and breezy jeans outfits donned by Clare and Chezka.
5. Play with styling.
Differentiate your chic uniform by playing around with styling. For the couple's shorts and button-down top ensemble, Chezka kept hers buttoned up while Clare chose to let it slip on her arms, and bare her bikini top.
