STYLE EDIT: Match Up In BFF Outfit
Lindsay Voitton and Eileen Mak
Things You’ll Only Do With Your Bestie
They say the best of friendships are those who know their pal inside out. Whether its one that is years old or months old, there is this unexplainable, special connection that brings both together. That goes without saying for Instagram mavens and BFF duo Lindsay Voitton (@lindsayvoitton) and Eileen Mak (@eileenmak) who share a knack for creating aesthetically pleasing shots together.
These two discover their shared interest back on Instagram in 2012, and started to communicate with one another. Soon enough, that friendship blossomed and both found their passion in matching fashion.
Here are the top tips from the expert duo to wear with your own BFF and own the streets looking like sisters.
Look #1: Embrace The Season’s Colour
Based on the 2019 Colour Trend, marigold yellow is no doubt coming in as the season’s favourite colour. As purveyors in fashion, Lindsay and Eileen are at the forefront in turning up the fun for this bold colour tone.
Style Tip 1: The idea is to integrate individuality in their matchy outfits where every look is an art of twinning, yet not looking exactly like two peas in a pod.
Featured Styles: 1582-10 Stripy Bow Espadrilles ▲ 4749 Nautical Crossbody Bag
▲LT8399-13 Studded Pointy Toe Flats
A bit of fun is always good – better, in fact, as the BFFs tend to add an additional pop of colour to their outfits, in line with the season’s trending colour, such as yellow for spring summer fashion and topped with dots and stripes elements to complement one another.
Eileen completed her look with a pair of espadrilles that screams “summer” and Lindsay had on nude heels to compliment her shade of choice to add “extra” height. Marigold highlights Eileen’s cheerful, happy-go-lucky personality!
Style Tip 2: Remember, the art of twinning is about coordinating ensembles without looking too matchy-matchy.
Look #2: The Bohemian Way
Featured styles: 318-63 Sparkling Flatform Sneakers ▲YD336-240 Embellished Ruffle Sandals
Style Tip: Sometimes, with twinning, it’s about striking a balance. Think romantic! If your playdate is in an overpowering tone, you should opt to balance it with plain neutral.
Lindsay and Eileen chose soft hues, lacey and flowy pieces to create a bohemian romance look, while keeping it feminine. To complete Lindsay’s look, Eileen matched it with a pair of pink ruffles sandals to keep it casual and laidback while she wore a sequinned slip-on sneaker that’s a perfect match to her dress colour.
The look styled brings out the free-spirited bohemian girl that’s in them, Eileen being the artsy one, and Lindsay the carefree other.
Look 3: Bows & Ruffles
Style Tip: If going for bold tones is not your cup of tea, play with neutral or pastel tones. Be sure to coordinate your poses too!
The BFFs adore the little details that bring out the outfits on them, with bows and ruffles decorating it. By maintaining a clean, pastel look, these small details have a better chance to stand out and shine.
Wear it with flats to not go over the top, accompanied by a simple structured bag for a clean, sophisticated look.
They completed the look by keeping their sunglasses on their head, handy for scorching hot days and yet being a subtle detail that adds an additional oomph to their matchy-matchy BFF look!
Look 4: Go Bold in Red
Style Tip: Trust us, you’ll both turn heads. Be daring and try something extraordinarily from the norm. It's not a tall order for this look and you probably have some pieces that are ready to ease your transformation.
Coming from the girls’ pieces of advice, you don’t have to wear the exact cookie-cutter colours to match with your BFF! They picked a common element as their base of styling – RED. And rocked that look!
Even though they are in different hues of red, their outfits exude the same vibes – feminine, sweet and chic. All thanks to the hearts print and ruffles details.
On top of that, a classic red lip that can never go wrong as they help to tie the looks together. Finally, complete the chic look with a pair of comfortable strappy shoes like they did and you’re good to go paint the town red!
Style Tip: Remember, twinning is not about looking identical. It’s about complimenting one another without being overwhelmingly similar. Grab your BFFs and start raiding your wardrobes!
