The matching mum and daughter fashion trend shows no sign of ending anytime soon, and now you can get a royal-approved twinning look courtesy of one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite brands, Needle & Thread.
Kate Middleton stunned in the label’s sequin-embellished Aurora dress to co-host the UK-Africa Investment Summit reception at Buckingham Palace back in January 2020.
As is typical of the Duchess’ dazzling ensembles, the gown sold out quickly, but it is now back in time for the festive season – along with a matching dress for girls aged between three and ten.
Aurora ballerina dress, £435, Needle & Thread
The Aurora kids dress is available in the same red embellished fabric as Kate’s gown, along with six other colours including blue, green and pink. At £275 it doesn’t come cheap, but it would make the ideal special occasion outfit for your little one this Christmas and would be perfect for a winter wedding.
Aurora Kids Dress, £275, Needle & Thread
The Aurora dress is among a number of Needle & Thread’s popular women’s dresses that have been given a kid-friendly makeover. They include the Wild Rose ruffle gown and pretty Rose Garden dress, for gorgeous occasionwear at any age.
Needle & Thread is far from the only brand to offer co-ordinating styles for mums and their mini-mes; the Marks & Spencer x Ghost collaboration features a range of pretty dresses in women’s and girls sizes, while H&M’s AW21 offering includes matching shearling fleece jackets for all the family. Too cute!
