- Elizabeth Warren, 70, and Amy Klobuchar, 59, unintentionally wore identical outfits for the Democratic debates on Tuesday night
- The candidates’ corresponding clothing choices sparked amused reaction from some viewers on Twitter

Senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar were among the 10 Presidential hopefuls who took to the stage in Detroit on Tuesday for the first night of CNN’s Democratic debates.
And while the two candidates distinguished themselves in terms of their policy positions, viewers seemed struck by their eerily similar sense of style.
Both Warren, 70, and Klobuchar, 59, opted to wear black camisoles beneath bright red blazers as they joined the eight other contenders for the debate on health care, immigration and race relations.
The twosome completed their identical ensembles by adding black pants and black shoes, sparking stunned reaction from some Twitter users.

One viewer took to to Twitter claiming it appeared that the Minnesota senator had duplicated Warren’s look.
‘Amy Klobuchar looks like she copied Elizabeth Warren’s outfit,’ they posted.
Meanwhile, another Twitter user suggested that Klobuchar’s staff would suffer for the fashion faux pas.
‘Frankly, I’m worried about Klobuchar’s staff right now,’ they posted, referencing widespread reports that Klobuchar had previously mistreated her aides.
Elsewhere, others appeared amused by the identical looks, with one humorously comparing the duo to Australian TV characters Bananas In Pajamas.

As the debates continued on the stage, some suggested that those who compared Warren and Klobuchar’s outfits were being ‘sexist’, given that nobody was remarking on the fact that the seven male candidates were all dressed in similar suits.
‘It’s sexist only to notice that the Klobuchar and Warren are wearing the same outfits, so I will be equally scrutinizing each man’s windsor knot,’ one said.
Another stated: ‘To all the people doing the ‘who wore it better’ between Sen. Warren and Sen. Klobuchar tonight… did you also ask that about the men? Just saying, their outfits looked pretty similar too.’
Neither Warren nor Klobuchar divulged the designers behind their blazers – but both garments are unlikely to be budget breakers given that the twosome touted their relatability and their working-class backgrounds during Tuesday’s debate.
