Think about twins and you’re likely to consider all the ways they’re the same. Their hair, their eyes, their shoe size...maybe even their laugh. It makes sense; these built-in BFFs are together from the start. And though twins can often seem like a package deal, what you probably don’t give too much thought to is all the ways they’re different. Because yes, even with the same DNA, these sibling look-a-likes, like everyone else, have their own idiosyncrasies.
But when it isn’t so obvious, fashion enters the equation. An expression of anyone’s imagination, it’s particularly useful for twins — parents adorning toddler pairs in different colours to tell them apart or teenage doubles setting the world straight — to allow people to understand who they are as individuals.
Curious how their styles — and personalities — really stray? Watch the three sets of twins above. They might be able to share closets (a definite perk), but take it straight from them: one twin’s outfit may never feel right to the other. Take a peek as they explain the tricks their parents used when even they couldn’t tell them apart, the ways their styles shifted growing up, and how they stay singular today — while still being totally in sync.
