The couple making matching outfits look cool

japanese couple matching

When I was much younger, my mum used to dress my older sister and me in matching clothes. Sometimes our in-sync outfits even included scrunchies or headbands in the same fabric. Many years have passed since then, but my sister and I still enjoy seeing photos from our childhood and laughing out loud at our twinning ensembles.

Matching outfits are not always a giggle-inducing matter, though. They can, in fact, be a highly chic and well-thought out choices (I’m sure this was my mum’s intention).

Take this Japanese couple, for example, who have been married for close to 40 years (a huge commitment in itself) and have been coordinating their clothes ever since. The colour red, checks, plaid and stripes seem to be favourites for this trendy couple. Aged in their 60s, this couple’s style has made me reconsider how I feel about matching outfits!

My husband and I used to wear the same colour sweaters and shirts quite often when we
were younger - and even now often find, without even knowing what each are going to be wearing that we have the same colour on - we have been married 55 years.

Yes we do. Not on purpose though. We have been married 49 year at the end of this month. I will get dressed to go out, only to find that my husband has chosen the same colors, so now I spread my clothes on top of the bed so he has a heads up as to what I have chosen, then he can pick a different color. Our family think it is CUTE but I don't agree
