Do All Twins Dress the Same??

It’s always fun to dress like your friends isn’t it?! Well, not really…but Bri and I tend to dress almost identical whether we like it or not. Even when we don’t have to dress exactly the same, we usually do!

Well, maybe the picture above isn’t the best representation (it was THON weekend after all), but we run into matching outfit situations like this on a daily basis. Bri and I share a lot of our clothes with each other pretty much every single day. It is really great having a double closet, don’t get me wrong, but a lot of the outfits we have are exactly the same or just different colors. This usually wouldn’t really be a major problem. I mean, we just have to make sure that we don’t wear the same thing, right? Nope! A problem always arises because Bri and I have classes at different times. She starts class earlier than me on some days and I don’t see her before she goes to class. (I can barely wake up on time for my own class, yet alone wake up early just to check out her outfit!) When we meet up later for lunch, there are times when we look exactly the same and it just makes us laugh! I mean IDENTICAL. Even our hair will be pulled the exact same way and we’ll have the same shoes on. It’s really weird! This doesn’t always happen, but a lot of the time if we don’t match entirely, we’ll have the same headband, pair of jeans, or same color shirt on.  I guess that’s what we get for liking the same things!
Like most twins, when we were babies and little kids, my mom would dress us in the same outfits. Apparently at age 3, however, we began to refuse to wear matching outfits. We would settle for matching colors sometimes, but that was it! We went through this stage for many years, even in High School. We just wanted to look different, to be different people. Now, we just find it funny when we have the same outfit on. It has led to many interesting conversations and reactions. Plus, sometimes it’s just fun to confuse other people!


  1. My sister Caity is 14 months younger than me. When we were little, my Mom would always dress us the same, or the same outfit, different colors. Even to this day, whenever my Mom buys us clothes for Christmas or something, I get one color (yellow, blue or orange) and Caity gets the other (green, red, or purple). We rarely get twin comment anymore though. In factshe is a lot taller and is often mistaken for the eldest.

  2. Well I've never been matched clothing-wise with siblings but me and my friends used to wear the same clothes, either in color or style or even the exact same shirt. I guess it just happens =)

  3. When my brother and I were little, my mom would dress us in coordinated outfits. He hated it- but everyone could tell we were boy and girl! And since I was bigger, no one ever thought we were twins. But it's cool that you guys pick out the same things on the same days without coordinating it!
