Fashion is a love language and it is widely spoken by couples who wear matching OOTDs together. We see it clearly on the Young Emperors, a fashion-themed Instagram account run by real-life creative couple Nelson Tiberghein and Isabelle Chaput. As of writing, they already have 88,700 followers on their two-year-old IG. You can also find them on TikTok.
The French lovers took cues from the growing South Korean trend where couples agree to dress in sync as a way to declare their relationship status. Decoding each other’s style and incorporating it to one’s own seem like a real compatibility test for couples nowadays. But the Young Emperors are effortlessly pulling off complementing looks that show why they’re truly meant for each other. Below, here are some twinning inspos and techniques from the couple you can easily cop:
1. Begin with nudes.
If you and your beau want a subtle approach to twinning, then you can follow a specific palette. Nude colors are a classic choice because they easily elevate looks for any occasion.
2. Buy two of the same thing.
Take twinning to heart and buy the exact same piece. Gender roles, be damned! Rock that puff sleeve top or skirt by injecting your own personal aesthetic.
3. Wear your pajamas out.
Nelson and Natalie capture how easy dressing up can be. For one, you can just roll out of bed in your pajamas, and call it a day!
4. Go denim on denim.
Remember that time when Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake arrived at the VMAs in full-on denim? Well, here’s an unintended tribute to the then-power couple of the early aughts.
5. Pay attention to the details.
While matching clothes are the basic rule of twinning, don’t forget to accessorize accordingly. You can choose to wear the same sunglasses and even the same handbags—there’s no limit!
