What is a family look?
Matching outfits for the whole family, also sometimes called “family look”, “mommy and me outfits”, “daddy and me outfits” are a growing worldwide fashion trend. Couples, parents and children, siblings or all family members increasingly choose to dress in outfits that match by color, style, print or all of the above!
Why? There are many reasons why families and couples go for matching outfits! Pairing your fashion looks for special outings, photoshoots, planned events are one example. Another, and the most important one, is that it’s just fun! Kids enjoy playing dress-up and looking like adults in their daily lives. As a family, going out dressed in stylish matching clothes sets you apart in the crowd and brings your family together.
For couples, a “couple look” is a trend that has originated in China and Korea, where couples wishing to announce their relationship would appear in public wearing matching outfits to declare their special feelings towards each other. Today, it is an increasingly popular way for couples to experiment with fashion, have fun and celebrate their relationship at every stage of their lives.
Really, you don’t need a special reason to buy matching outfits for your family or go for a couple look. Treat yourself to something fun!
Tips and tricks for matching family outfits
A trendy, stylish family look is achieved when you take the individual needs of your family into account. It is very rare that the same color or exactly the same shape would suit everyone equally! Here are some tricks that our stylist Anastasia recommends:
- Go for different clothes — shirts, dresses, onesies — with similar prints or themes, like a marine theme, a stars and stripes theme, a flower print.
- Look for outfits with matching fabric or texture — knit sweaters, jeans, velvet dresses and tops.
- Match your look by selecting a variety of clothes in the same style: go boho-chic for a family picnic, choose preppy pieces for an art gallery visit, pick formal clothes for an evening out. This way, every family member can go with the color and style that flatters them the most.
- Accessories are perfect for matching outfits too! Different clothes united by similar or identical scarves, purses or watches are an easy way to achieve a couple look or a family look. Different accessories with similar prints work wonders too.
