All the cuteness and none of the ick factor. Tabitha Willett picks the Mummy & me twinning pieces that you can’t go wrong with.
When I see parents twinning with their littles I can’t help but feel all warm inside. But having tried it, it truly isn’t as easy to pull off as it looks. Below are my favourite pairings for mothers, fathers, daughters, sons and siblings that I love! These are also excellent for any family photoshoots you might have coming up like engagement announcements!
Needle & Thread
The most beautiful matching occasion wear by Needle & Thread. If you are having bridesmaids and flower girls I encourage you to look at this beautiful brand.

This American brand created the most gorgeous cuts in the most beautiful prints. I wear mine all the time and Ottilie loves being able to twin with me. Perfect to twirl in too.

Love Shack Fancy
Arguably my favourite designer of all time. So brilliantly cut yet so wonderfully playful. I wear mine all Summer long with everything from Supergas to espadrilles to high heels.
Seraphina is a British based brand that does womenswear, children wear and most recently home wear. Particularly excellent with their Summer collections I think. I fantasise about balmy evenings in the garden laying my beautiful table with a Seraphina tablecloth and topiary while I sashay in my Seraphina linen dress and my immactulate children skip around like garden nymphs. Ahhh…

If your style is more Lake Como than flouncy English countryside then this is the brand for you. Designed with old European elegance in mind, Mrs Francoise specialises in ‘Mummy and me’ styles (which also branches into boy’s clothes too for the boy-moms out there!). Currently taking orders via email as each piece is made to order. The fabrics are to die for!

These folk style dresses have been on our wish list for the longest time. They are brilliantly transitional too with boots and jackets while the weather is cooler.

Mix & Match
Sometimes the idea of “twinning” can be far too matchy-matchy for some and in this case I wanted to show how you can complement each other’s outfits as a family without looking uniformed. I dress tonally with Ottilie most days by accident and it’s such a nice way to ensure you all look put together.
