The Collyer twins: style crushing x2
By Jemma Tibbals, 16 April 2017
Twinning, when it happens, is proof to you and your bestie that you're cosmically linked style allies: how else can you explain showing up in the exact same logo tee and trainers? Best-friend destiny, that's what it is. But what if matching someone else was your 24/7 status? For the Collyer twins it is and, judging from their blog and Instagram feed, which focus on their travels, wardrobes and all-round envy-inducing lifestyle, life's much more fun with a plus one. We caught up with them to talk twin life...
Name: Loanne and Jordan Collyer.
Nickname: Loie or Lo, and Jords.
Occupation: Fashion, lifestyle and travel bloggers, plus DJs.
Dream job: This one!
Do you share clothes: Yes, sometimes.
How do people tell you apart?
Loanne: Once you get to know us, we have so many physical differences. In terms of personality, I'd say I was slightly more extrovert and weird!
Jordan: I have a freckle on my face that's a quick distinction if people get confused, plus we have different face shapes and mouths. Personality wise, I'd say I'm more headstrong: the leader of the pack!
What have you got far too many of?
J: Jackets: hundreds of them!
Who's your go-to style stalk on Instagram?
What's the best piece of vintage you’ve ever bought?
L: A little red floral summer dress I wear every summer. It's timeless.
J: A black, flowy dress with shoulder pads, embellished with silver swirly buttons.
You're at your best when…
L: On the beach, swimming in the tropical sea with sun beaming on my face.
J: Surrounded by sun, sea, sand and friends!
What was the last thing you wore that now makes you cringe?
J: White socks and black tights together (that was seven years ago, though!).
Which decade represents you best ?
Both: The 80s!
What’s on the 2017 agenda?
Both: Lots of travelling with work. Next up is LA, then Ibiza and lots of summer festivals. Catch us playing at El Dorado festival in June!
