Guess what fashionistas; dressing alike isn’t just for twins anymore! Moms and tots around the world are embracing the ‘twinning’ trend and donning the cutest matching sets for their everyday adventures. From matching leggings, shirts and skirts to cute-as-a-button sets, ‘mommy and me’ fashion is the hottest new thing in fashion. But, before you rush to your wardrobe, make sure you check out our ‘mommy and me’ fashion tips below. With these tips on-hand you will soon be on your way to looking like you just stepped off a Pinterest board!
1. Keep it simple stupid
The trick to ‘mommy and me’ fashion is to keep it simple and subtle. It’s important to remember not to force your tot to wear something they aren’t comfortable in. Choose something your little one loves and is able to move in. Sweatshirts are a great way for you and your tot to stay comfy and warm in winter and they look great paired with high heels and jeans (you) and jeans and mini sneakers (your tot).
We love these matching Indiana by Freda mamma and bambino sweatshirt sets from AdoreThis.co.za. These unique sets are imported from Melbourne and are one-of-a-kind in South Africa. Invest in a set for R1500 and wear them for mom-and-tot photoshoots, weekends away or family outings in winter. Of course, they also make for great gifts for a friend or family member who has just had a little one. This set comes in both black and grey and is available online from AdoreThis.co.za.
2. Don’t forget the boys
Don’t think that just because you have a son that you can’t embrace the ‘twinning’ trend with him! The sports luxe trend is still huge so it’s time to embrace your inner Tomboy and get matchy-matchy with your little boy. Little girls can also embrace the Sports Luxe trend with mommy and don matching shirts, sneakers and more. If you don’t want to your child to look like a ‘mini me’ version of you then rather start with the same palette (such as a white T-shirt and blue jeans) and then add a similar style jacket, sweatshirt or matching print in different styles to bring your two styles together.
We love these matching Indiana by Freda mamma and bambino vet sets for mom and son. You can choose from a unique leopard print puffer vest set for you and your son or a matching leopard-print sweatshirt for you and a leopard-print puffer vest for your little tyke. Both sets are available from AdoreThis.co.za at R1500 a set.
3. Stick with the classics
One of the easiest ways to nail the ‘mommy and me’ look is to stick with a classic color palette that is easy to mix and match. Basic colours like black and white are perfect if you want to match just one element of your outfit with your little one. You can try wearing the same white dress and your daughter and switch it up with different coloured accessories and shoes for each of you. Matching white or black sweatshirts with different coloured leggings, skirts or jeans is also a great way to subtly embrace the ‘twinning’ trend.
