Mommy & Me: 6 adorable (and cool) matching outfit ideas

Katie Mythen-Lynch

Nobody believes they’re going to be the type of parent who matches their kid’s clothes to their own.

Until you have a baby of course, which is when you realise that matching outfits are completely adorable and totally acceptable and hormones have left you powerless to resist them. Take all-round cool gal Dawn O’Porter for example, who understandably succumbed to these mother and son tights by Irish brand Slugs & Snails earlier this week.

Once it doesn’t turn into an everyday thing (it might come across as odd when your kids reach their teens), we quite support the Mommy & Me trend. Here’s how to do it without looking like you’ve lost your marbles…
