Once you click, you might feel inspired enough to get matching duds for you and your person. Hey, all in the name of love, right?
Who says polka dots and colourblock stripes don’t go?
That blue pops but the checks take it over the edge.
Can’t even handle her cardis and his cuffed, so-not-dad jeans.
Holy shiitake, the tartan is killing us. Those wide-leg cropped and his coat are our inspiration.
Gah! No words.
They are all about the layers.
In fact, let’s call them slayers. Get it? Layers. Slayers. Heh.
Those scarves though.
The nautical stripes? To die for.
Their grey bottoms and matching collars are fab but her red and his blue show they do like to stand apart every now and again.
They break free from matching colours and simply do matching outfits. From their peacoats to their ski sweaters all the way down to their lace-up loafers, these two are our spirit animals.
We love these two!!!
