We’re identical twins and have worn matching clothes every day for 23 years – we’re so similar it’s creepy!

A pair of identical twins have enjoyed wearing matching outfits every single day for the past 23 years. 

Rosey Coles and Kathy Heffernan, both 69, from Hampshire, love to dress the same, and even match their glasses and pyjamas.

The sisters live next door to each other and spend every day together, taking bus rides, going on walks and shopping.

They share the same style and love donning identical dresses and outfits when they go out for the day.

For 11 years the pair worked together at their cleaning business but have since retired.

Identical twins Rosey Coles and Kathy Heffernan (both pictured above in 1970), both 69, from Hampshire, have enjoyed wearing matching outfits for the past 23 years 

Kathy, a mother-of-one, said: ‘It’s like being married to someone for 70 years.

‘People see us and ask to take a photograph.

‘They say they don’t often see twins our age together.

‘We both have the same glasses. We wear our hair the same way.

‘We have the same pyjamas, but we don’t always wear those at the same time.’

Rosey, a mother-of-two, added: ‘When we go out, we wear the same things.

‘For the last 23 years we’ve been together most days.’

Growing up, the sisters wore a lot of similar clothes from the age of 13 but stopped matching when they both got married and moved apart.

The twins (pictured above in 2004) live next door to each other in matching flats, with matching grey interiors 

Rosey married in 1974 and Kathy followed suit three years later.

The twins both separated from their husbands in 2000 and moved to live closer together and began dressing the same again.

They moved in next door to each other in 2012 and now share identical looking flats.

Kathy said: ‘We have exactly the same homes with the same layout and the same grey colour scheme at the moment.’

Kathy and Rosey spent most days together – shopping, visiting villages and even going to doctors’ appointments together.

Kathy said: ‘We go on bus rides. We go to a village to a café for a little trip out. Sometimes we go out for a drive.’

The fashion loving twins can’t help but purchase new outfits – despite already boasting a wardrobe of over 50 items of clothing.

Their favourite outfits are their 50s style dresses – complete with petticoat skirts.

Kathy said: ‘We have so many clothes. We always go to the shop and see something we like.

‘We spent three hours in John Lewis the other day. I spent £600 on three dresses.

‘We wear lots of long dresses and jeans. We have the same coats. The wardrobe is packed tight.’

Luckily their similar taste means there’s no conflict, with Kathy insisting: ‘We don’t argue.’ 

Rosey and Kathy love the compliments they receive on their matching outfits – and said most people struggle to tell them apart.

Kathy said: ‘We’re always told how lovely we look. People don’t know who is who.’

Rosey added: ‘We are very similar, it’s creepy.’

The sisters also love to go away together – recently going on a cruise to France and Spain together in May 2023 – and make sure to pack the same clothes into their suitcase.

They plan to keep wearing matching outfits for the rest of their lives – but do sometime wear different tops and jeans to each other if they are not going out.

Kathy said: ‘We don’t like to wear something twice for an evening outfit. We can’t help but buy something new.’
