From M&S to Matalan, we’ve spied a big trend in the shops this summer – wearing matching outfits with your mini-me. Many of our favourite brands have got on board with ‘mummy and me’ collections, and you only have to look to Instagram to see how popular they are, including with Millie Mackintosh, who has been rocking some cute co-ordinating summer looks with her daughter Sienna.
So whether you have a special occasion lined up or just want an excuse for a sweet family photo opportunity, we’ve rounded up some of the best mother and daughter matching clothes to shop now…
M&S x Ghost
The collaboration between Marks & Spencer and Ghost includes some gorgeous matching dresses for mums and their daughters aged between two and 16. Featuring everything from ditsy florals to sweet strawberry prints, the hardest part will be narrowing it down to just one design! From £87 per set, available at Marks and Spencer.
Never Fully Dressed
Even babies can get involved with the co-ordinating looks at Never Fully Dressed, whose Kids & Baby line features leopard prints, bold slogans and rainbow colours to match their womenswear. We love it! Available from Neverfullydressed.com from £20.
Needle & Thread
Got an occasion lined up? It doesn’t get much better than Needle & Thread’s beautiful girls’ dresses, which are designed to complement their womenswear to perfection. Featuring the attention to detail and luxurious fabrics their women’s designs are known and loved for, they are well worth the price tag. From £135, Needle & Thread.
Lockdown may be over, but there’s still a place for loungewear in our wardrobes, and Matalan’s Mini Me tie dye sweatshirt and shorts set is set to be a hit with mums and their little ones alike! Available from £9 per set at Matalan.
River Island’s Twinning range features co-ordinating pieces for mums and daughters from babies to teens. One of our favourites is the black gingham smock dress, which is £14 for under fives through to £46 for women’s.
