A pair of identical twins have enjoyed wearing matching outfits every day for 23 years.
Rosey Coles and Kathy Heffernan, both 69, from Hampshire, love to dress alike and even match their glasses and pajamas.
The sisters live next to each other and spend every day together, taking the bus, walking and shopping.
They share the same style and love to wear identical dresses and outfits when they go out for the day.
For 11 years, the two men worked together in their cleaning business, but have since retired.

Identical twins Rosey Coles and Kathy Heffernan (pictured above in 1970), both 69, from Hampshire, have loved wearing matching outfits for 23 years.
Mother-of-one Kathy said: “It’s like being married to someone for 70 years.
“People see us and ask to take a picture.
“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 pajamas, but we don’t always wear them at the same time.”
Rosey, a mother of two, added: “When we go out, we wear the same things.
“For 23 years, we have been together almost every day.”
Growing up, the sisters wore many similar clothes from the age of 13, but stopped matching when they got married and separated.

Rosey married in 1974 and Kathy followed suit three years later.
The twins both separated from their husbands in 2000, moved to live closer to each other, and started dressing the same again.
They moved in next to each other in 2012 and now share identical apartments.
Kathy said, “We have the exact same houses with the same layout and gray color scheme at the moment.”
Kathy and Rosey spent most of their days together: shopping, visiting villages and even going to doctor’s appointments together.
Kathy said: “We do bus rides. We go to a village in a cafe for a little outing. Sometimes we go out for a drive.
The fashion-loving twins can’t help but buy new outfits, even though they already have a wardrobe of over 50 pieces of clothing.
Their favorite outfits are their 50s style dresses, complete with petticoat skirts.
Kathy said: “We have so many clothes. We always go to the store and see something we like.
“We spent three hours at John Lewis the other day. I spent £600 on three dresses.
Rosey and Kathy (pictured above in 2013 while on vacation) spend each day together and enjoy taking the bus and shopping together.
“We wear a lot of long dresses and jeans. We have the same coats. The closet is full.
Fortunately, their similar tastes mean there’s no conflict, with Kathy insisting, “We don’t argue.”
Rosey and Kathy love the compliments they get on their matching outfits – and say most people find it hard to tell them apart.
Kathy said: “We are always told how beautiful we are. People don’t know who is who.
Rosey added: “We’re very similar, it’s scary.”
The sisters also like to travel together – they recently cruised together in France and Spain in May 2023 – and make sure to pack the same clothes in their suitcase.
They plan to continue wearing matching outfits for the rest of their lives – but sometimes wear different tops and jeans if they’re not going out.
Kathy said: “We don’t like to wear something twice for evening wear. We can’t help buying something new.
