There’s something to be said about famous women outdressing
I wouldn’t go as far as to say that they’re matching but, finally, I can affirm that Justin and Hailey Bieber at least look like a couple and not an older sister
Out in Beverly Hills, Justin and Hailey wore big black layering pieces and slim sunglasses that evoked a suitably likeminded mood. Similarly, Justin’s enormously baggy pants mirrored the slouch of Hailey’s gargantuan denim overalls, yielding two complete looks that also fit each other pretty well.
Sure, the couple’s attitudes are quite distinct — shirtless (!) Justin is grungier than heel-wearing Hailey — but the vibe is shared and with these two, that’s typically a tall order.
These looks are a good example of how two folks with relatively incompatible style can find some throughlines, even if it’s incidental. There’s some real connective tissue in their immense silhouettes, though, and small complementary elements like the black shoes and leathers (Justin’s jacket, Hailey’s bag).
I like that. Justin and Hailey’s outfits are expressive and indicative of their own tastes but align in a way that’s almost circuitous, reflecting a deeper intangible connection.
Like I said, the Biebers’ disparate approaches to getting dressed are a big deal, so much so that their clothing-related differences were even touched on in a recent interview where Hailey had to emphasize that they just dress how they feel, rather than to match each other’s look.
That’s fine and all, because it’d be foolish to read deeper into the stuff they wear than what you see. That is, you can’t pick a relationship’s status out of a wardrobe but it is pretty funny to see a couple so conventionally committed and, yet, so stylistically separate.
Justin, meanwhile, seems to only wear clothing because he has to.
And yet, sometimes these two actually manage to hit a complementary outfit or two. Well, broken clocks and all that.
