Taupe~tastic Twinning

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, it has been known for us to dress alike, the photo above is living proof. This so called Twinning may seem manufactured for social media but in fact it really does just.happen. Don’t get us wrong, when we are both wearing Belle & Bunty dresses and running around with floral crowns on our heads, THOSE *may* have been pre~meditated ~ we don’t hang out in silk maxi dresses all day, as much as we’d love to. After over 10 years working together our wardrobes have gradually focused into a pretty succinct colour palette and our personal styles too, although they do differ, have formed into a definitive look.

Take these outfits for example: both BIG FANS of this seasons must have ~ the OTK boot but both styled in typical ‘Belle’ and ‘Bunty’ fashion. Alice with a more tailored feel in her zip through A line skirt and silk blouse layered up with an oversize stole, all with a modern but still subtle retro feel and Hannah with a more relaxed bohemian vibe in a oversize shawl and baggy leather shorts.

And don’t get us started on the colours, long term B&B friends will have seen a nude, peach, blush or taupe shade weaved into our collections many a time as well as into our personal wardrobes which leads to much twinning on a day to day basis. In the words of  Fleetwood Mac we have Big, Big love for it. We spoke last week on The Gram about going to Nude Lovers Anonymous and {noooo, its not what it sounds like} this may need to come to fruition. no joke. But seriously once you find YOUR style which you can tweak seasonally and as the trends evolve, and have a core colour palette in your wardrobe you can easily make additions and feel safe in the knowledge that you will have many items that your new piece will easily work with.

In short, find your thing and stick with it, and if you have a buddy of similar tastes even better ~ pair up, swap and share. After all Twinning is Winning.
