So, let’s face it- the idea of matching your significant other is cute. But let’s face it- there is a fine line between cutesy and cringey! I’m here to help you decipher what’s worth purchasing and what is better left for a costume party. There are plenty of ways to get creative and show affection for one another without being so literal- keep scrolling for some ideas!
Coordinating swimwear: Started by Kenny Heisfeld, a NYC consultant who moved to Bali, Kenny Flowers is a distinguished, sun-soaked line full of tropical inspired swimwear guaranteed to garner attention and compliments wherever you go. Their collections are named for gorgeous beach vacation hot spots- my favorite prints right now are the Bali and the Positano.

Unisex Tops: ASOS has a great line, Collusion, that is unisex and so fun! We love the idea of matching your S/O with an oversized button-down. Wear yours over a cute bikini as a coverup, and he can wear his with coordinating swim trunks.

Roman Numeral Hoodies: Athleisure is so on trend right now, and matching hoodies stitched with your anniversary date is so unexpected and subtle. There are plenty of Etsy shops offering these in a variety of colors and fonts.
Matching Pajamas: Nothing screams “Netflix and Chill” quite like matching cozy jammies. LL Bean is a quintessential American brand known for classic wardrobe staples with the best quality. These Scotch Plaid pajamas will keep you warm and keep you looking cool all Fall and Winter.

Sports Gear: Cheer on the home team with your sweetie in coordinated looks from ’47 Brand. You’ll find yourself wearing these items on so many other days than NFL Sundays!
Signet rings: Male jewelry is having a moment, and a signet ring that can be engraved is a really cool keepsake for both parties. This Tiffany & Co. one in sterling silver will be in your wardrobe forever.
Belt Bags: Yes, you heart it correctly- Coach is having a huge comeback. The old-school logo in the charcoal and black combo makes it totally unisex. Wear it crossbody for your Hot Girl Walks, and then let your S/O steal it for errands or a night out.
