Going all matchy-matchy with your kid is nothing new, it’s been going on for ages and it goes from matching a tiny detail to just seem like you shrunk your clothes and put them on you baby.
Personally, I rather not go all the way, like in this previous pic (matching only our sneakers). A single item or an equal print in different types of garments (your blouse and her skirt perhaps) would do the trick, don’t you think? Many celebrities tend to do this with their kids from time to time, so me nail it perfectly, others just go way too far… Here my 3 big rules of this matching game 😉
1. DON’T: LOOK LIKE CARTER’S JUST BARFED ALL OVER YOU
Just because you’re going to dress alike with your kid that doesn’t mean you have to dress LIKE a kid. Avoid all childish details in your clothes like overly cute prints, giant preppy bows, and pastel, baby-intended color combos.
DO: ADOPT A SAME PRINT IN A YOUNG AND ADULT VERSION
Do like Kate Moss and her daughter her, they both wore stripes but according to their adult or teenage style.
2. DON’T: USE LINE FIGURES THAT DO NOT FLATTER YOU
Just because your baby is wearing a blouse with a skirt integrated, it doesn’t mean you have to do the same.
DO: GO FOR SIMILAR LINES THAT BETTER FIT YOU AND YOUR BABY
As Alessandra Ambrosio and her daughter here, use similar types of dresses, according to your age and body type.
3. DON’T: MATCH EVERY ITEM YOU AND YOUR BABY ARE WEARING
Please don’t try to match every.single.thing. It looks like you’re trying too hard if you ask me.
DO: MATCH WITH SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS COLOR
Going all white or in any other color is a great idea to do the matching game in a stylist way, just as Katie Holmes and her daughter here.
