Trends may come and go, but some things are simply here to stay. What originated at the Copenhagen Fashion Week at the beginning of the year has slowly taken the street style fashion world by storm. Known for their impeccable taste and style, Danes took to the streets with their best friend by their side, matching outfits on and a new trend in tow. These Scandinavian girls chose to dress in coordination with one another, using color, print and silhouette to make their bold statement.
But it seems that this chic trend isn’t limited to fashionable Danes. Dressing in tandem with each other, many of our favorite influencers and fashionistas got in on the trend and took to Instagram to show us their fabulous twin looks.
Here are some of the best takes on the matching best friends trend:
Head to toe nude
The simplest and easiest way to coordinate an outfit with your best friend, and avoid looking too matchy-matchy, is to opt for a head to toe nude ensemble. Whether you opt for denim jeans or high-waisted trousers, mini or midi skirts, or cropped tops or flowing silk blouses, coordinating only a color, instead of the whole outfit, is the easiest way for both you and your best friend to showcase your personal style, while still creating a uniformed, matching look. Top the whole look off with some layered necklaces, a pair of hoop earrings, and even a sleek trench coat for the ultimate Parisian chic vibe, and you and your BFF are sure to look like true fashion icons.
Dressed to impress
Friends who dress together stay together, or at least that’s what they say. So, why don’t you and your BFF get together and visit a great womens online clothing boutique. Although there are endless options you can choose from, a great idea would be to opt for matching dresses, just like our favorite IG models. Whether you decide on an exact same dress or even choose a same style in a different color or print, a dress is the perfect item you can easily match with your best friend, while still being able to showcase your personal style through your choice of shoes and accessories, and avoid looking exactly the same as each other.
A well-suited ensemble
Sleek, fashionable and professional, a perfectly fitting suit is a staple item every girl should have in her wardrobe. Whether it’s colorful, printed or plaid, anything but a plain old black suit is the perfect option to try this chic matching trend out with your best friend. Another great idea would be to take your BFF shopping and buy two suits in the same color, one plain and one printed. That way, you can mix and match the blazer and the trousers for a truly matching, yet not identical look.
Striking shoe game
If you and your BFF are keen on giving this striking trend a try, but aren’t ready to make such a bold statement yet, a great idea would be incorporate it into your accessories. Take on two trends at once and get some block-heeled pumps in two different colors to let your individuality shine through your outfit choice, while still matching the small details. You could also opt for the same, brightly-colored handbags, similarly printed silk scarves or even matching statement jewelry – just feel free to experiment and let your creative juices flow.
If you’re thinking about trying out this fabulous trend and twinning with your best friend, these incredibly chic looks will undoubtedly give you that wow factor. After all, two is always better than one.
