That's the way to do it! J-Lo and Casper show Kim and Kanye how to dress his 'n' hers style… with success

Forget the sloppy leather trousers and the his 'n' hers sneakers, because Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are floating around Europe giving a practical tutorial in how wear his 'n' hers outfits… with style.
Whereas Kim and Kanye's attempts to style it as a unit come across as awkward, J-Lo, 43, and 24-year-old Smart were in perfect symbiosis as they left London's Charlotte Street hotel on Tuesday night.
Watch and learn, Kim and Kanye! J-Lo and her boy-toy Casper Smart stepped out in his 'n' hers monochrome outfits in London tonight
The singer was supposed to be performing further up the M1 motorway from England's capital, but had cancelled her performance in Manchester at an earlier date without explanation.
She certainly looked well, if wrapped up against the British autumn chill, as she stepped out with Smart in a rhapsody of black and white.
Of course, the symbiotic relationship between the diva superstar and her boy is partly because not only is she more famous, richer and older… she also employs him.
Matching pair: This couple dress together, and they do it well
Dance Again: But J-Lo won't be dancing in Manchester; the home of The Smiths, New Order, Oasis and The Stone Roses
So a betting man or woman would be unafraid to suggest she dresses him, too.
Kim and Kanye are two gigantic egos in a cocoon of first love, so their dressing choices are bound to be slightly more democratic, despite West's obvious influence on Kim.
But whatever J-Lo does to get Casper in step, it's working.

Night out: The pair headed into Soho together holding hands
She was glorious in a black and white coat, this season's ubiquitous leather trousers and clod-hopping platform boots.
Casper mirrored her (but not too gloriously) by keeping the same palette; white boots and T-shirt, black jacket and shiny coated trousers.
Both of them kept to the scheme by wearing black sunglasses (on a dark, cold London night) and flashing incredibly white gnashers.
What not to wear: Kim and Kanye try to be shiny and ghetto… look awful
