    Smile What's the English for "lovebirds' outfit"?

    Hello! I'd like to learn whether there's an English term for outfits for a couple, which we call " lovebirds' outfit" in Mandarin.

    The clothes for lovebirdsare usually same/similar style, pattern, colors, hairstyle but not necessarily exactly same. They could be T-shirts, night dress, socks, caps, watches, etc. Thanks!

    "His 'n' Hers"

    "Matching outfits".

    But your term is so much better!

    Really? Your words are so encouraging!

    But if I told a foreigner about that with my coined term, they probably would stick there for a few seconds.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    In Mandarin/Chinese, you could also say 'dragon & phoenix outfits'.

    For Westerners, 'outfit of romance' ?
