Twin and I, went to our very first international trip together with our partners. Since we are 6795 miles apart from each other (From LONDON to PHILIPPINES), it is quite hard to unite our outfits considering the different weathers of the countries we will be coming from.

A big thanks to Facebook Messenger, we were able to send our initial planned outfits while we pack our luggage for our upcoming TAIWAN trip.


Here are the things we came up with:

1. HAVE A THEME

  • Thinking of what concept to use in your OOTDs is one way to match your clothing. It is very important to consider the places you will be visiting to avoid freezing or sweating during the whole tour and photo ops.

  • For this outfit, we matched our OOTDs with our itinerary. Since we will be visiting Yehliu Geopark, fly a lantern at Pingxi Old Street and watch the sunset at Jiufen, it is best to pick colors within the color palette of these places and apply it in some AUTUMN BOHEMIAN themed outfit.
  • We have researched that the weather in Taiwan will be a bit colder than the Philippines during our visit therefore it is highly suggested to avoid summer clothing. My bestfriend chose to wear a mustard midi dress which I matched with my long orange skirt with yellow floral pattern.

2. WEAR THE SAME PATTERNS

  • One easy way to plan your OOTDs is to pick a certain pattern you can match your outfits with. Either your tops or bottoms, patterns can make a big impact in harmonizing your twinning ootds.

  • For this outfit, my bestfriend chose to wear her checkered skirt which I matched with my 80 pesos skort (looks like a skirt but its shorts underneath) from taytay. Spice it up with a contrasting colored tops and poof! Effortlessly matched OOTDs.

3. COLOR COORDINATE

  • Nothing beats an OOTD with coordinating colors! In this tip, it is not necessary to have a theme as long as there’s a certain color primarily matching the whole outfit.

  • We recommend to pick a bright color to emphasize and complement each other’s outfits. Dark colors such as BLACK sometimes do not make a unique impression as to bright colors namely PINK, ORANGE and YELLOW.
  • In this outfit, we decided to go against each other’s theme, Girly and Manly. I simply coordinated my bestfriend’s two-toned long skirt with my pink striped long sleeve-top which made our OOTD’s still look perfectly matched.

4. DO NOT FORGET THE BASICS

  • There are lots of ways to put some flavors into the basics, the only struggle is how to avoid looking TOO MATCHED (Parang sasayaw – as what some Filipinos say) especially when wearing some plain white T’s.

  • For this outfit, my bestfriend wore a 2-piece dress with white T underneath. I matched her outfit with the same flow and length skirt and a plain white T as well for my top.
  • With these, wearing the same basic top but using different pieces to complete each look can help complement each other’s outfit while staying away from an obvious match.

5. PAIR UP YOUR ACCESSORIES

  • If you and your bestfriend’s outfits were not quiet matched, then accessories is the key. Have at least 2 accessories that can harmonize each other’s outfit or if you can, then just use exactly the same accessories.

  • Most of the time, my bestfriend and I unite in picking the same fashion items. Luckily, she scored these stylish bags which made our outfit seemed to still coordinate without looking the same.
  • Also, wearing a matching silver or gold accessories can make a great accent on your whole twinning OOTDs.

BONUS TIP!

You can make use of your partners to check if the colors of your outfits and the background blend together nicely. As you can see at the bottom photo, their outfits are coordinated as well with ours.

SPECIAL THANKS to our very patient partners for taking our pictures and being a good sport in our Twinning OOTD ideas.

If all else fails, JUST HAVE FUN and LAUGH IT ALL OUT! After all, the experience and bonding are what truly matters most in your ADVENTURE.
