The Sweetest Way To Be Matchy-Matchy? We Found It!

Couples who dress alike incite a fair amount of eye-rolling, but thanks to Eliot Payne of local neckwear line Accoutre, you and your boo can align your accessories without being too his-and-hers about it.
Payne whips up his handcrafted bow ties using vintage ties, and he's salvaging the extra fabric to create bow-tie bracelets for the ladies. Paired with a stack of bangles, friendship strands, and cuffs, one of these locally made finds is a perfect addition to your arm party. Want your own bracelet, sans matching tie for your mate? That's okay, too — the pieces are sold separately, so it's up to you whether you match or not. You can scoop some up at U Street shop Ginger Root Design or via their online store. We can't think of a more festive, charming version of wearing matching sweaters (even if it's by accident).
Where: Ginger Root Design, 1530 U Street NW; 202-567-7668.
