Unless you’re going for a fancy dress party with your twin sister, exactly matching clothes are an absolute no no. Style coordination with your better half isn’t all about looking exactly the same. Look at Zayn and Gigi for instance, they’re both rocking all-black looks but the orange accents on Gigi’s sweat helps break the monotony. Don’t they look adorbs?
2. Keep An Eye On Details

Nail the details, friend! Subtle things like his tie matching the embroidery on your suit, or carrying a bag that matches the colour of his tie can make all the difference. For those of you who don’t want to go OTT style coordinating with your partner, minimal things like these would work brilliantly!
3. Be Colour Correct

Colour coordination doesn’t necessarily mean wearing the same colours. You can look in sync with each other by choosing to wear contrast colours or go with neutral colours. If you want to work around the same colour as your partner, try choosing a different shade to maintain a balanced look. The classic combination of black and white for instance, can never go wrong!

Always keep in mind the occasion you’re getting dressed for. Be it a formal dinner or a casual Sunday brunch, remember to dress at the same level as your partner. You don’t want to walk out wearing a gown while he’s put on his running shoes, right?
5. Decide Your Outfits Beforehand

A little discussion about what you both are planning to wear will do you more good than you think. Have a talk about what you think would be the right kind of thing to wear for the occasion, and style coordinate accordingly. This way you’ll be more excited than nervous about seeing your guy at the event!
6. Know Which Outfits To Match

Casual, everyday looks are easier to play around with when it comes to dressing stylishly as a couple. But if you really want to experiment with formal or Indian wear, you must know what should be matched and what shouldn’t be. You may love androgyny but wearing a pantsuit may not be a great idea when your partner is wearing it too! For a formally coordinated look, you could choose to wear a pencil skirt with a well fitted blouse instead of a business suit.

Last but not the least, know the fabric you’re wearing. Denims could be matched in several ways for a casual day wear look. Whereas, for an ethnic formal look, you can always refer to the fabrics you both are wearing and accessorize accordingly. If for instance you’re wearing a chanderi saree, ask him to stay away from wearing all chanderi. However, he can use chanderi in a minimalistic way to accessorize his look.
There are no hard and fast rules for couple dressing. But these few tips may help you get better at complementing each other’s style!
