13 Of New York's Most Stylish Twosomes

Photographed by Angela Pham.
It's no secret that here at Refinery29, we're huge proponents of couples — and friends — who influence each other's style. Seriously, there's just something about a fashionable twosome that makes our hearts melt, especially around this time of year. (They say love is in the air, right?)

With V-Day right around the corner, we decided to celebrate love of all kinds (BFFs, spouses, newly minted lovers) by catching up with some of the city's most stylish duos to talk about togetherness — and fashion, of course. Remember, two times the style can only mean one thing: double the fun.
