Tension Us This Christmas by Wearing These Cute Couple Outfits

December 9, 2021

Every year, people that manage to superglue their relationship in time for Christmas always make sure to take pictures in matching pyjamas so they can caption it, “Me and mines.” Because we are tired of them rubbing this cliché in our faces, we’ve suggested  9 perfect outfits for them to wear instead. 

1. Adieu Papa shirts

Nothing screams love and romance like death. This outfit is free- it’ll last longer and you don’t even have to remove it after your photoshoot. Give us single people something to look forward to. Be different. 

2. Lace

It’ll be better if it’s one of those old lace styles that had many holes. And if you want to spice it up, you can swap outfits. Pyjamas are an imported trend after all, and if Yoruba movies are anything to go by, you can wear iro and buba to bed too. 

3. Adire T-shirts

You can even make it yourselves and have a mini photo shoot while the dye dries up. Who knows, you might find a new hobby that isn’t oppressing single people. 

4. Santa Claus and Mrs Claus costume

What could be more festive than this outfit? You can even reuse the pictures during Valentine’s day, and single people will still be pressed. 

5. Suits

If you are into that sort of thing, you can create a backstory where you are coworkers to add spice to that photoshoot no one asked for. Give us drama, give us a plot. It’s the least you can do. 

6.  Wrapper 

Who doesn’t love a good village setting photoshoot? Take us back to our roots: village palm wine tapper in a wrapper and his babe in a wrapper, holding a calabash.  

7. BAGCO super sack

With a little bit of imagination, anything can be turned into an outfit. Why be boring when you can be camp? You don’t even have to sew it or anything. Just make holes for your heads. You’re welcome. 

8. Leaves

Give us the Garden of Eden couture. Give us what white people thought we wore before colonisation.

9. Ghana Must Go bags 

We know that you are here for the oppression Olympics but if it was a fashion competition, you would win with this outfit. We would even vote for you to win.
