(Coordinating outfits for mother and daughter)

Right from childhood, little girls like to mimic their mommies from the age of 2 and 3. They explore their moms wardrobes, draping their sarees, wearing their lipsticks or even walking around in their heels. This comes naturally to the li’l ones and they just love it. Moms also glee over it! This special relationship between moms & daughters has been getting showcased by some celebrity moms like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce in the form of ‘mini me’, where they have worn matched or coordinated outfits.


This trend has been popular for quite some time now in the west, but having Bollywood celebrities like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Twinkle Khanna coordinate outfits with their daughters, recently has taken this trend to another level. ‘Mini me’ hashtag has become very popular, with so many families posting adorable pictures of moms and daughters, fathers and sons or even vice versa, in matched or coordinated outfits. One of the main reasons behind the popularity of the trend lies in the fact that it’s not just about being stylish, but about being a bonding activity between the parent and the child. It has an emotional connect. This whole process of matching or coordinating the outfits is also fun and it brings out the creativity between the mom & daughter. Their looks needn’t be identical. Rather they could complement one another, matched or coordinated. Young moms have also taken to this trend, as it complements their youthfulness & daughters obviously love looking like their mums. I would like to conclude by saying - like mother, like daughter! They are best friends for life!
