How will you react if you run into a stranger wearing the same clothes as you do?
Will you hide? Will you give him/her a high five? Will you say hello? What is the right way to deal with this awkward situation?
I love fashion, but I am not so vain as to think I've got unique taste or that I have exclusive rights to something, so for me, it wouldn't really be awkward. I suppose if nothing else, I'd think the other person had great taste! I might even take the initiative to tell her that.
LOL. This topic is kinda funny. well, i'm sure nobody liked the idea of wearing the same thing to a complete stranger.
I don't mind conceptual matching, but if its a carbon copy, it freaks me out. I don't even like accidentally speaking in unison with people, let alone dressing the same!
BUT you should be confident enough in whatever you wear.Than only you can handle this awful situation.
I'd smile and wave and have a great laugh. But I am in rural Montana where the uniform is T-shirt and jeans.
Well i don't have anxiety of looking very unique every time so i feel good if somebody is carrying it better than me and i feel bad if somebody carrying it badly.
Sometimes I wouldn't say anything, but if I do, I say "I guess you got the memo about wearing a yellow dress too!" or whatever the item was.
Try and just act like hi, whatever, make a joke of it, at least then it won't be awkward.
Just smile and congratulate the other person for having such great taste in clothing.
I would say..... "Awesome, someone else has the same great taste as I do."
I am so used to it as I normally buy the same clothing 3 - 4 pairs. So it will be normal for strangers or even friends seeing me wearing the same clothes even though it is not so.
I'd feel like they must be poor, working in some job in which you don't mind getting dirty; and that they don't have good fashion sense, or just weren't trying to impress anyone with what they were wearing.
It's happened to me! Once I just complimented her.
I usually feel confident that I look better in it!
As a matter of fact this happened to me recently and it took me a back when I saw this girl in my top. I looked at her and she at me, I was uncomfortable because of how she looked at me so I quickly took my eye off her. I definitely looked better in it than her, this is the complete honest truth, sorry to say. Certain things some people can't wear well because it will not flatter their body type as well.
Sometimes I approach that person and announce that I have the same [insert article of clothing here], lol. But it's not awkward to me at all. If you shop in a store, it's inevitable that someone else someone has the exact same something that you do. And that's ok. No need to be ashamed!
"why hello sir, i see you have impeccable taste in fashion. Great minds dress alike and so do we! Hahahaha"
my first instinct was to say that i have no fashion sense what so ever and if some one were to dress the same as me i would pray for them,.... however,....
i have a co-worker who constantly wears the same color shirt as me, on mondays no less so that it might get mentioned by our boss durring the begining week dpt head meeting,...
its absolutely infuriating.the boss uses this as a way to infer that we're sleeping together which we most deffinately are not,... he actualy comes right out and says,.. "do you two pick out your shirts when you roll out of oppossit sides of the bed?"
i gigled uncontrollably one day when my co-worker wore the same color shirt as the boss,... boss man asked what was sooooo funny,.... so i pointed out that they were wearing the same color shirt,... "was this a one night stand,.. or should i be jelous?" i asked,...
strangely enough, the subject has not come up again.
First look down to see if you are still wearing your clothes. If not this might indicate that he or she is a congressman/woman and they havefinally stooped to stealing the clothes off of our backs.
Second possibility is that you have just met yourself in a parallel universe. Always carry last night's lottery numbers in case they're from the past and a notebook in case they're from the future. Superbowl winners is another bit of information to keep handy and ask for.
Third option is to ask them if Walmart has the new fall clothes in yet. It obvious that's where they to are forced to shop.
oh that would embarras me. i would rather love to hide myself. i have my own identity and style and dont want anyone else to be like me. strange but true
LOL haha :-) This has happened to me before and I think it's fun and hilarious! I just look at them and point at them, depending, because some people may get offended, and say, "Macy's" and I totally love your style ;-O whoohooo! We should go shopping together! This has made people totally crack up!
If i saw someone wearing the same thing as me i would definitely have to stop them and tell them they had great taste and ask if they wanted to be friends on facebook.
There's no shame in that. Hey, maybe you've got yourself a clothes buddy! I would just smile at them.
I would certainly get a kick of it !
That person has really great taste in clothes.
I say "hey great outfit!" And then make a joke of it Sometimes, I make sure that the other person is not offended. I dont think I have great style, but want to make sure that the other person is comfortable too.
About four years ago, an older lady (about 10 years older than I ) was wearing the exact bathing suit. She proudly pointed this out to me, yelling over about a 25 yard distance on a crowded beach. I said something very polite but rather curt. But my husband said my face was priceless. Yes, I need to lose 25 pounds just as I did that day. But the fact that I viewed her as elderly really injured the ole self-image. I got over it fast though. I'm no 'fashionista' that's for sure.

This has only happened to me once, and it was last spring. My best friend and I had gone out for lunch and I was wearing a shantung jacket with the matching shell underneath and a pair of dark blue jeans. I was facing away from the entrance and my best friend looked up and told me someone else had just entered the room wearing almost the exact same outfit. So, I casually turned around, the other woman looked my way, and we gave each other the thumbs up sign and a big smile. That was it. No feeling of embarrassment. Just an almost comforting feeling that my taste in clothes is shared with at least one other person!
I make it obvious and play it cool, If it's my friend I'd say "Hey we look like twins" and don't stress about it. Each one is different and you will look different even if you're wearing the same everything. If it's someone I don't know you don't have to go over to say something, because you really don't have to. But if you feel like you should then go over and say something like "Hey, I love your outfit!" but I don't think it's necessary. It might be awkward at first but hey you for sure know how to rock an outfit so no worries.
If I saw someone wearing the same threads as myself, I would enter us both in TLC's "What Not to Wear"!
If i was to say anything at all i would say you have great taste.
I bumped into someone in the street wearing the same jumper as me a while back... I said extremely loudly (more than once too, embarrassingly enough) "look, she has the same jumper on as me!"
That's never happened to me, but I would think it was pretty cool, and I definitely would remark on it, in passing, anyway.
By saying the most obvious thing. Nice pants man! Loving the shoes!!
give a happy look someone shares the same fashion sense as mine!!!!
I would be in an awkward status. Espicially if theres other people around. However keep it together. Or else it will look like they can wear it better.
It honestly never mattered to me. I have never been superficial enough to see cloth as something to make myself look better. I try not to look bad, but cloth are really something like a car or anything else that you need. I am more for comfort and longevity than looks. As long as it is a dark color and looks half decent, I like it. And if somebody else likes it too, I guess it was a good pick.
Sometimes I say "nice shirt" or whatever and laugh a little. It makes it less awkward. The worst is when your wearing the same dress. That's really bad.
I will feel awesome, and here is why:
I was at Disney World's Hollywood Studios, and I had just left a show. I was wearing a really awesome Darth Vader shirt and, I feel pretty awesome in it. While I was walking out I saw this 6' 5'' broad shouldered Nordic man with long golden dreadlocks walking my way. He was wearing the same shirt. I saw him. He saw me. He said "Bro!" I said, "Dude!" And we high-fived on the spot, and kept walking, going about our business.
It is I believe, one of the most satisfying moments of my life.
I will slap their face and tell them to take it off! Are you serious, who would want to see someone wearing the same thing as they are and if you do it's like whatever....gooo way over there

Does anyone over the age of 25 follow current fashion trends?Being 19 years old, I can't see the appeal of buying new clothes every season just to be like everyone else. Do older women and men feel the same way?

What is the meaning of the sideways cross necklace that everyone seems to be wearing?Celebrities from Selena Gomez and JLo all seem to be on this fashion trend in jewelry. Why sideways? Does it mean something or is it just a new take on the cross?
