Seoul Style Watch: Couples dressing alike

A friend of mine in Hong Kong travels to Korea frequently and once told me that boyfriends and girlfriends dress alike. I forgot about it until yesterday, when I spotted a couple out and about, dressed alike from head to toe. Super cute! I stopped them and told them I really like their outfit. Smiles abounded. In the excitement, I forgot to ask them if I could take a pic. Shortly thereafter, I spotted yet another who were dressed alike and couldn’t resist snapping their picture.

So, what do you think? Should we adopt this in the western world? Is it foolish or fantastic?

    I love the post about Korea, it almost makes me miss it a little. If you want to do a little shopping in Korea, then hit up Dongdaemun market and Myeon-dong is crazy popular. Namdaemun is the most popular, but watch for the "waygook" price hikes. If you go to Namdaemun look for the dried mango, it's amazing. All of them are along line 4, or the light blue line.

    The "couple's clothing" is very popular. I'm not sure it will catch on in the western world because we place too much emphasis on individuality…and the men are way to "macho". But you can even get matching underwear sets, which I think maybe taking it a little too far.

    Also, I thought the booties were adorable when I was there until it snowed and I saw that the women still went out with impossible heels and short skirts. But I give the Koreans credit, they have a very adorable style.

    I think it can look cute depending on what they are wearing. It is interesting but so different. Happy vacationing!

    I think I will go for this kind of couple outfit. Not only for the two of us, but we will let our baby boy wears the same outfit too. Surely, this could be a great family bonding if I will do this. Anyway, Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful post. You give me the perfect idea on what to buy for this Christmas.
