Today is Valentine’s Day! A romantic party very popular in Taiwan. How do you usually celebrate it? Do you have romantic plans with your special one? In today’s spirit, I want to share with you a few stylish couples that I have spotted in Taipei.
It’s quite common to see some couples dressing similar clothes, or wearing matching T-shirts (with messages like “I’m his” and “I’m hers” pointing to the left or to the right). The couples I’m featuring here today are wearing different clothes but somehow their styles are in tune.
The first stylish couple are Amber and Mace. They were at the Songshan Cultural Park when I met them. As you see, both are wearing sunglasses, shirts, skirt/trousers by the knee, and their socks are well visible. Also, both are carrying backpacks.
The second stylish couple are Vicky and Erick. They were at the Zhongxiao Dunhua area when I met them. As you can appreciate, they are both wearing grey hats, each one different but similar. Their sweaters both have three-quarter length sleeves, and they wear long skirt/jeans.
The third stylish couple are Crystal and Stephen. Although they are from Hong Kong, I met them when they were also at the Songshan Cultural Park during their visit to Taipei. As you can see, they are both wearing round tortoiseshell-rimmed glasses, white shirts, and skirt/trousers by the knee. Their bags also have similar styles.
What do you think of this trend? Do you also wear similar clothes or matching outfits when you are with your special one?
In Spain you can find many stylish couples, wearing similar clothes or styles. But I think I’ve never seen a couple wearing exactly the same clothes or matching T-shirts (with messages like “I like him” and “I like her” pointing to the left or to the right). What about in your country?
Andreina is 29 years old, she is from Venezuela but she lives in Barcelona (Spain) where she works as a psychologist. Besides her job, she is also a fashion blogger. You can follow her Instagram for more photos of her. We met at Palo Alto Market in Barcelona, where her style immediately caught my attention.
Andreina is wearing an ethnic-inspired robe over a black top, jeans with busts and extreme ripped design, and silver shoes from Stella McCartney. She is wearing plenty of complements: a floral headband, pink glasses, some necklaces and bracelets, several rings, a watch and a black Chanel handbag.
Sanza is from the south of France but he has been living in Taipei for more than 10 years. He works in the banking industry but besides this job he collaborates in an infinite number of projects related mainly with photography, fashion and culture. We met through a common friend, who, due to our shared interests, thought it was about time that we met each other. Sanza is one of the creators, along with the French photographer Stephane Ferrero, of Revver Magazine. Last year, I worked as stylist in Revver Magazine #7 and it was an amazing experience!
When I run into Sanza at the Songshan Cultural Park, I couldn’t help to take some photos of him. As you can see, his style is really elegant in a unique way, mixing different trends. In this case, Sanza is wearing a blue shirt with short sleeves and Mao collar buttoned to the top, skinny jeans, black socks with red polka dots, and brown and white brogue leather shoes. His complements are a Cartier watch, a bracelet, his laptop in a Dvf 1974 Neoprene case and a black leather wallet.
Coco is a 17 years old student in Taipei. I met her at the Songshan Cultural Park, where she was with some friends (like Shalynn, who already starred a post here, Eufay, also in here, or Nicole, in here). She is wearing a wide black overall tied at the shoulders and cropped at the ankles, over a black T-shirt, and black boots. Her complements are a black oversize boater hat with the “Food for Thought” writing on the inner wide brim, a statement necklace made with black leather, small golden earrings, some silver bracelets, and a black leather tote handbag with big blue eyes made with sequins, with a blue teddy bear keychain hanging from it.
I’m a bit shy and I’m usually the one behind the camera, but, little by little, I’m trying to get out of my comfort zone by putting myself in front of it. So, it’s possible that from now on you will see more photos of me. I hope you like them! 🙂
On this occasion, I was wearing a denim shirt from New Look, a black tulle skirt from Bliss Tulle and black high heel sandals from Zara. The complements were big Prada sunglasses, pearl earrings and a lovely bowtie from Betolli.
The tulle skirt is the model Ashley, with a double lay of tulle. It makes me feel like a princess, so I paired it with a denim shirt to relax a bit the look. I was looking for a long time before I found this denim shirt: simple, versatile, but not too “manly”. About the shoes, I love heels, and these black ones combine almost with everything, tall but still comfortable to wear.
As for the complements, the sunglasses were a gift from my hubby for my birthday. They are not very discrete, even a bit baroque, but I think they suit my personality very well. I got the earrings on my first trip to Philippines, in a small island near Cebu. And the bowtie is the model Celosia from Betolli, a small company from Latvia. The Celosia bowtie is white with a print of butterflies in different colours, delicate and original at the same time. I really like it! I think I’m going to wear it in many outfits.
