In the last few years, we’ve seen more and more celebrities #twinning with their kids. There’s pop diva Beyonce, who frequently steps out in matching outfits with her daughter Blue Ivy — such as this one-piece swimsuit with zebra prints — and even former footballer David Beckham, who has been spotted in similar apparel as his eldest son Brooklyn.
It’s usually a fashion faux pas when someone shows up in the same outfit as you. But when it comes to rocking up in matching outfits with your kids, it’s actually adorable. Celebrity moms are also getting more creative in their twinning game, and finding fun ways to dress alike, without necessarily having to copy every single detail from their tots’ ensembles. Wearing clothes in a similar cut, style, or pattern is enough.
While it may look like an adorable #ootd for Instagram, it may be challenging to find matching apparel for both parents and children. Fortunately, there are a number of brands that have dedicated children’s collections, which carry designs similar to some of their adults’ range. Which is good news, because this means you can easily shop for your entire family in the same store.
To make it easier for you, we’ve rounded up 5 brands which offer matching pieces in their kids’ collections. From functional outerwear, to high fashion pieces that are also available in small sizes, this list will help enhance your twinning game.
This one’s specially for the dads. Armani is known for its dapper suits, so why not grab two for yourself and your young ‘un? We suggest getting a darker grey for yourself, and a lighter hue for your child. Pair it up with some snazzy shoes, and now you’re both dressed to impress.
Armani Junior is available at Parkson in Suria KLCC
If you’re planning for an autumn holiday to someplace with a cooler climate, we suggest Burberry’s trench coat. This iconic piece offers both form and function, and is easy to match with anything, so you and your little princess can look stylish while keeping warm in the cold weather.
Burberry is available at Parkson Pavilion KL and The Gardens Mall
Kenzo has funky T-shirts and sweatshirts in snug fabrics to keep your kids comfortable. Many of these are emblazoned with its signature Tiger logo, which comes in many colours you and your kids will love, so you no longer have to worry about long mornings of deliberating over what to wear. Pair them with a super chic skirt of your choice.
Kenzo is available at Starhill Gallery
Another trick to twinning is also colour matching. If you’re taking your kids to a formal occasion, Marc Jacobs’ preppy style is already half the effort in keeping them looking their best. Inject a dash of fun into child’s ensemble with this bi-colour Little Marc Jacobs Milano dress — which is cinched by a detachable belt with a popcorn motif — and, for yourself, try on Marc Jacobs’ black floral-printed blouse and red skirt.

Another brand worth sussing out for matching attire is Versace, which is known for its vibrant hues and bold prints. The brand carries a children’s line called Young Versace, which boasts equally colourful designs. Our pick for your tot is the Camoupard shirt dress, which is crafted in twill fabric with floral motifs, and decorated with gold Medusa head buttons. Match it with this baroque knit dress for yourself.
Versace is available at Parkson Suria KLCC and Parkson Elite Pavilion KL
