Across the globe, we see the matching clothing style trending. While Mother daughter matching outfits are a reoccurring trend, we also see a new trend on father and son outfits and complete family outfits as well.

Mother and daughter matching outfits have been popping in and out of fashion for over the last century. However, the mother and daughter matching trend is not new; there have been some changes over time, though. One of those changes is the fact most matching outfits are now store-bought while in the old days most outfits were homemade.

Do you join the matching fashion trend this year?

Are mother-daughter matching outfits a new trend?

The fashion for mother-daughter matching outfits started in early 1900. Like most fashions, ‘mummy and me outfits’ have been cycling in and out of style for over 100 years.

Back in the old days matching clothes were more seen as leisure. Either for mums who stayed at home and had time to sew clothing or for a mum who had the money to go shopping for matching outfits.

Part of the idea behind the matching clothing was that mum and daughter would spend enough time together in public to show off their matching outfits, being without their other half would not pay off the effort to invest in mirror clothing.

So the answer is no, mother-daughter outfits are not a  new trend. However, on the other hand, mum and son matching outfits may be a very new trend indeed! How adorable is this leopard outfit for mother and son? 

Around 1970 the trend started that mothers started taking on jobs outside the house, with this changing trend mum and daughter outfits were going out of fashion. Also, mum’s who did stay home didn’t continue with this fashion any more.

Nowadays, mum and daughter matching clothing is mainly storebought. Even though many things have changed, matching outfits for mums and daughters are fashionable once again to wear.

Matching clothing for the whole family?

Really? Well, I don’t know about you, but I like it.

Previous attempts of designers to sell father and son outfits had not much luck yet and never reach the point of success or became really popular. Maybe this is the year that all changes and persistence of the designers pay off?

As dads have become more involved in family life, designers have seen their opportunity to offer clothes complementary to the change of dads changing roll in current family lifestyle.

So now matching family outfits are available and the trend has become quite popular for the whole family 2020.

Most of the matching family clothing is designed for special occasions when the family spend a lot of time together such as holidays,

sleepwear and vacation outfits. Matching Christmas pyjama’s are one of your choices or matching swimming outfits for the whole family are available in many different choices as well.

  1. Thanks for reviewing some very nice and affordable mother-daughter outfits for 2020. I am always looking for some nice gifts for my daughter and granddaughter, so this post is perfect for the coming summer months! We had similar outfits for my wife and kids, of course, that was decades ago now.

    There were several options that caught my eye, one being the matching swimwear (so cute!), the yellow-striped dresses/outfits (the last set you covered), and the link in the middle of your article also had some nice selections. You have made my job as a loving father/grandfather a bit easier today, I appreciate that!

    • Hi Dave, thanks a lot for your reply to my article bout affordable mother-daughter outfits. I am delighted I was able to help you and I am sure your kids and grandchildren will be so delighted and excited to receive such a nice gift. My daughter would be over the moon for sure if she would receive a matching outfit for her and mum.

      Best wishes.


  2. Hi Jude.

    This post really takes me back a few years to when my daughter was a bit younger. We used to think that it might be a bit cheesy to get her an outfit to match her mother but when we tried it, we couldn’t believe how much she loved the idea.

    I think a lot of it comes from our daughter feeling like she was all grown up by wearing exactly the same outfit as her mum and once she had one matching outfit she wanted even more. It became one of their “things to do” and they used to go out shopping together every Saturday afternoon in their matching outfits (and bring home even more!!)

    I think it is one of the things that build a great bond between mother and daughter. Thank you for sharing your ideas in this lovely article.


    • Thanks a lot for your lovely reply Dave. Your daughter was so lucky that her mum did this with her. This sounds like a lovely tradition and so much fun for both of them.

      So very true what you say about little girls want to feel they are growing up, my daughter likes to wear everything I have and wear too.

      Thank a lot for your response Dave, I appreciate it.

      Best wishes Jude

  3. Many thanks to for sharing such an excellent article for us. I have a baby and she is my favourite. I always match my dress with my daughter and we always wear the same kind of dress. I feel like we look so fashionable in our matching dresses.

     It seems to me that the mother and daughter united dresses are the new trend. And as a result, I think I have saved a lot of money.  I’m considering to wear a mother and son outfit, I think it’s going to be interesting for everyone to witness a new fashion. I think matching costumes with mothers and sons can be a very new trend indeed.

    Lastly, I hope that through your article, every mother, child or daughter, will be delighted and will share their experiences with you.

  11. I am a dad and  I do not see anything wrong wearing the same outfit, as long as it is only done in moderation such as in occasion to be recognized as a family. The advantage of wearing the same outfit when going to places where are a lot of people, this way you recognise your family members and don’t get lost. With regards to mum-daughter or dad-son, I think there is no problem as long as your daughter or son does want to wear the same outfit with you. 

    • Hi Dan, thanks a lot for replying and sharing your insight with us. Very good point that matching clothing can be used functionally as well, to recognise your family member in busy crowds.

      I agree to it has to happen in a fun way to wear matching clothing, when kids turn an older age they may not enjoy joining in anymore as much and then we should definitely move on to a different family tradition..

      Best wishes and thanks again for stopping by. Jude

  12. Dear Jude,

    Matching outfits really have a unique way of a family presenting themselves, especially in public functions. It is certainly a fashion trend that comes and goes- but not too long before it comes back up again. I also agree with you that mother-daughter matching outfits have kind of evolved from the old-fashioned sewn-at-home approach to mainly store-bought clothes.

    You’ve sold me an idea to try a mother/sons match within my family to see how things will go!

    • Hi, thank you for your response to my article and thank you for stopping by. I am happy we could inspire you to try a mother-son outfit, please let us know how you go.. We are looking forward to hear about your experience and if you like, feel free to share some photos with us. Best wishes Jude
