If you just read the title of this lil’ write-up and “cheesy” is what immediately came to your mind, we totally get it. There can be times when two people who are matching from head to toe can be a bit…well…much. But then there are moments when we’ve seen two individuals in matching outfits that were so adorable, we couldn’t help but let out at least one set of ooo’s and ahh’s.
We’ll be honest. It wasn’t usually adults that gave us this response (although matching T-shirts every once in a while is cute); it was when we saw parents wearing something that matched what their kids had on. It’s a form of “mini me” at its finest.
Whether you have a little one you’d like to match with or you want to find the perfect present for a friend of yours who has a child, here are some of our favorite approaches to mom-and-child matching looks.
If you’ve got a newborn baby and you want to look really cute for their first doctor visit, this is the kind of outfit we recommend. It’s casually-stylish and also the kind of article of clothing that won’t require a lot of work to put on or take off (the baby, we mean!).
Graphic T-shirts are one of the best things to ever happen to a casual fashion day. They’re comfortable. They look great on any body type. And many of them come with the kind of message that expresses an individual’s personality to a “t” without them having to say a word. If your child has a friend’s birthday party coming up or there’s an event at their school that’s on the low-key side, become a great topic of conversation by wearing matching tees.
During the fall and winter seasons, you don’t want you or your baby to catch a cold. As far as finding a graphic tee alternative, the solution is wearing matching sweatshirts or hoodies. Typically, they cost more than most graphic tees. But if you get your child’s a size up, they can wear it this year and the next.
Is there an outdoor wedding invite that you recently received in the mail? Why not bring smiles to everyone’s faces by getting the kind of summer dress that comes in the size you and your little girl can wear? Come to think of it, finding matching dresses for Easter weekend is a really sweet idea too. Not only will you and your daughter look precious but it’s great for family photos as well.
If the best way to describe your personal style is boho chic, we already know you’re in love with this kind of look! Something that we personally like about this kind of matching outfit is you and your daughter can wear the same fringe but can use different kinds of accessories to bring out each of your individual tastes too.
If it’s time for your child to sign up for swimming lessons, make them feel more at ease by buying a pair of matching swimsuits. It’ll be perfect as you formally introduce them to the water; even better when you’re both going to the beach for the first day of summer!
If we still weren’t able to convince you to give the whole matching look a try, how about a compromise? Even if you’d prefer to not be all matchy-matchy during the day, how about doing so at night? Matching family pajamasare perfect for family vacations or over the holidays when you’re hosting relatives at home. You can even make it an annual tradition to get everyone a new pair.
Who knows? Maybe you’ll look up one day and your children will have their own children wearing matching pajamas along with them too? (How absolutely adorable is that?)
