Mom and Toddler matching outfits have really taken off and it seems like everyone who’s anyone is getting in on it. C’mon, if Beyonce can do it, then it’s got to be cool! Twinning outfits have taken Instagram by storm and we’re a little enamoured here at Baby Blanks with those adorable “mom and toddler matching outfits”.
Matching outfits are all about not taking yourself too seriously, expressing some ‘tude, and celebrating hanging with your kids. A bit of an ode to old fashioned family time, mums who embrace the trend, say wearing matching outfits is an opportunity to bond with their kids, knowing that these years won’t last forever. Twinning is also lots of fun for those who enjoy the age-old creative play and drama of dressing up.
I have to admit, there’s been a few times recently when I’ve seen kids clothing that I just wish they made in adult sizes. The return of strong colours and bold, fun patterns in women’s clothing (aka Gormanesque style) may have contributed to breaking down barriers between kids and women’s clothing styles, leading the way for matching outfits. The recent jumpsuit trend is a favourite of mine and a perfect example of a clothing style that can be worn by all ages. The tutu is another fashion trend that mums and toddlers are matching.
The tee shirt is of course the universal fashion item and is worn from birth to old age. As the perfect canvas for all sorts of graphics and to express a zillion messages for the world, the humble tee shirt is one of the most versatile, and easiest ways for mums, toddlers and older kids to match their outfits.
As many “Awww” inspiring matching outfits you see on Instagram, there may be an equal number of twinning fails that make you laugh out loud or make your mind boggle. You know the ones – the six year old girl dressed in stilletos, or the entire family dressed in coordinated swimwear and matching sun hats.
Although twinning is about essentially looking the same, designers are getting creative about the way they embrace this design trend. There’s no one way to pull off the ‘mini me’ look. You can match your outfits in a really obvious way, by going all “matchy-matchy” with completely identical outfits, or create matching outfits that have similar colours, patterns or themes. In other words, if you’re a little bit shy about going full twin, you can still join the #twinning trend.
Of course twining has really taken off with millenial mums sharing photos of their kids on instagram. For inspiration, there are plenty of great accounts to checkout, including @delightfulhimig and @mhyian.
