osoroi code or the art to dress the same as your friends

Whereas in a lot of Western countries we would prefer to be the only one to wear a certain piece of clothing and being in the same place as someone dressed exactly like us is not desirable, in Japan, it is a bit different.

In Japan, it is not rare to see couples, family or friends dressed exactly the same, it is something that is called osoroi code in japanese (おそろいコーデ from the English coordinate). For Japanese, it is a way to show their affection to the persons they are with!
