The saying, “Like mother, like child” doesn’t just apply to the latter’s physical appearance and attitude. Sometimes it pertains to their similarity in style—and many moms take it very literally.
You’ve probably seen mothers and kids who are wearing matching or complementary clothing. Personally, I find myself fawning over how these ensembles come in miniature sizes. If you’re a new mom or a mom-to-be who wants to do the same with their children, we found celebrity inspiration and items you can cop too. Happy shopping for you and your little one!
Marian Rivera and Zia Dantes
Marian Rivera and baby Zia are known for their matching clothes (mostly from designer brands) and poses. This one, for example, shows them wearing denim jackets during their Euro trip. Marian’s had floral embroidery at the back while Zia wore a plain jacket. Of course, they’re doing their signature leg up pose too.
For mom: Alice + Olivia Chloe Embroidered Sequined Denim Jacket. Available on Net-a-Porter. | For child: Zara Kids Basic Denim Jacket. Available at Power Plant Mall.
Mariel Padilla and Maria Isabella Padilla
While bonding by the swimming pool, Mariel Padilla and baby Isabella both wore bath robes over their swimsuits. You can have fun with choosing your kid’s robe as they sometimes come in cute designs like this princess-print one below. It comes with a hood as well to ensure that you baby is cozy after a quick dip.
For mom: H&M Terry Dressing Gown. Available at SM Megamall. | For child: Princess Hooded Bathrobe. Available on Lazada.
Kylie Padilla and Alas Abrenica
Lazy days at home call for comfy PJs. Kylie Padilla did it right as she and son Alas wore striped long-sleeved pajamas. It’s just the perfect outfit if you just want to cuddle with your tot without worrying about work!
For mom: Forever 21 Stripe Pajama Shirt & Shorts Set. Available at SM Makati. | For child: Aden & Anais White & Blue Striped Cotton Muslin Babygrow. Available on Childrensalon.
Andi Manzano and Olivia Reyes
If you still have a beach trip coming up, you can get matching swimwear from Andi Manzano and baby Olivia’s collab with Coral Swimwear. In the photo above, they’re wearing the Oceania, which is a black and white one-piece with a ribbon tie in front. Don’t forget to take lots of OOTDs during your vacation, okay?
For mom and child: Coral Swimwear Oceania Swimsuit. Available online.
Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Carter
It’s no secret that Blue Ivy Carter already has a fancy wardrobe like her momma. (Who could forget her lewk at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2016?) During Mother’s Day last year, she and Beyoncé were in matching Dolce & Gabbana tropical-print dresses. But if you can’t find these exact pieces anymore (probably sold out because of Queen Bey), we have alternatives for you.
For mom: Roseanna Tropical Print Oversized Dress. Available on Farfetch. | For child: Dolce & Gabbana Kids Peas Print Dress. Available on Farfetch.
