Do you dress like your significant other?


Alex and I have very different jobs. He spends his days on a lobster boat. I spend mine behind a computer. So naturally, our daily wardrobes very a bit. Here’s an example.

Couples Clothes

But on a Saturday night out to dinner, there really isn’t much difference between us. We’re both in jeans and sweaters in the fall. For example, we are both fairly devoted to Levi’s and vintage Woolrich. There have been times where we’ve been getting dressed and both step out in black sweaters, jeans and brown boots, then argue over who should change.

I’ve thought about how lucky you might be if you’re in a same-sex couple and have the same taste. Double the options! What a dream!

Alex has really shaped my style quite a bit. He’s more focused on classic looks and because of him, I’ve worried less about trends and instead I buy less, but I buy better quality.

I’ve photographed lots of couples in the past that look like they could share a closet. Like these two.


Or these two.


Who even wore matching SHOES.


What about you? Do you dress like your partner? Or share clothes with them?
