As personal stylist to the coolest twins I know – aka my sons – I try to fill their wardrobe with pieces that I would actually wear. Yes, and I’m in my late 30s. Clothing for children should be brimming with personality, and since my kids are not lacking any type of energy in that department, I have had no problem finding clothing that suits their tiny style.
And if we match from time to time, great! While I don’t ever dress the boys in the same outfits on the same day, I do like to pull from the colors in their clothing and coordinate with either of my sons. Landon’s emoji sneakers that I found at The Children’s Place are honestly the coolest. I just recently started getting into wearing more yellow, and I purchased my sweater and Gucci inspired belt from H&M for $6. That’s right – I’m bragging about my bargain belt that looks like a Gucci belt. #sorrynotsorry
I thought that having boys meant that I wouldn’t be able to play with their style like how mothers to daughters can dress similar. But actually, it’s really very simple to put together mommy and me looks for mothers of boys.
Here’s some ideas for some outfit info with your little dude:
1. Stripes – Anybody can wear stripes. And luckily, it’s easy to find a striped top for you and your child anywhere. Stripes and jeans are a simple and go-to outfit that you can both wear. A fun way I like to match to their striped outfits to wear a striped top in contrasting colors.
2. Shoes and Sneaks – If you are going to rock the same shoe as your little one, Converse are it. Maybe switch it up by letting mom wear the high tops, and your little one the low-top Converse sneakers? And buy them in different colors!
3. Create a Color Story with your outfits – Having one distinguishing, bold color in your mommy and me outfit is a great way to coordinate. I pulled the yellow from Landon’s shoes to match my sweater. But we’re also wearing black jackets, so out ensembles look like they belong together.
