Mommy and Me Outfits: How To Pull It Off With Style

Mommy and Me Outfits: How To Pull It Off With Style

When it comes to fashion, there’s a fine line between cute and corny. Fashion trends for kids can fall in one of those two categories. And the most controversial of these kids fashion trends? Mommy and me outfits.

You swore you wouldn’t be one of those moms who does the matchy-matchy thing. But if you love to find identical clothing pieces for your little one and you, you’re not alone. Celebrities and soccer moms have been creating adorable matching outfits with their kids for years. Plus, if Bey can do it with Blue Ivy, you can totally pull off Mommy and me outfits with your little, too—right?

Of course. There’s a secret recipe for pulling off Mommy and me outfits and we’re here to share it with you.

The key to a perfect Mommy and me outfit is to make sure you’re not styling down. Avoid dressing like a little kid; instead, dress your son or daughter up. Find kid versions of shoes that are in style for adults or buy similar accessories to make your outfits look the same. What we’re saying is don’t buy unicorn slippers for yourself just to match your little one; instead take pieces from your own closet and match similar items when shopping for your kids.

Not sure what we mean? No worries—we’ve tracked down some of our favorite fashion accessories, outfits, and shoes for mom and kid duos just like you.
