If you were in a relationship this year, chances are you spent a lot of time with your significant other, hunkering down and becoming perhaps too intimately acquainted with every inch of their existence — including their wardrobe. In this way, celebrities, it seems, are just like us. When we look back on the year in A-list style, it’s matching couples who stand out.
The Kardashians, of course, are masters of koordinated klothing, but it wasn’t just Kim and Kanye who dressed alike this year (despite being separated). When Kourtney started dating tatted Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, she went full Hot Topic, and by fall, they were basically twins in leather jackets and combat boots. Then, of course, Kim started dating Pete Davidson and hanging out on Staten Island, and it was only a matter of time before she added some “scumbro” flannel and sweatpants to her rotation.
I get it! Not only are we spending way too much time in our own little bubbles, but reentering society can be daunting. It’s nice having a wardrobe buddy to hit the town with, whether they’re your cringey romantic partner, your convenient distraction, or your little green robot baby.
Below, a roundup of some standout celebrity-style moments that had us seeing double in 2021.
On Instagram, Kourtney has scoffed at the implication that she changed her style for her tatted fiancé. Maybe she has always been a Hot Topic girl at heart. Either way, we can’t wait for the goth wedding.

Unlike her sister, Kim is loud and proud about Kanye’s influence on her style. West has been working closely with Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia this year (who now, à la Ye, just goes by Demna), so it’s no surprise Kim has been wearing a lot more of the brand too. One could say they’re in a style throuple.

Gosh, don’t these two just make you so happy!?! A$AP Rocky and Rihanna showed up so late to the Met Gala this year they almost missed the red carpet, but …….
