Twinning has reached a whole new level these days! I don’t know about you but I have always loved matching with my daughter. And then when I became a mom for the second time, I started loving matching our outfits to the core! Then I got a twinning set that screamed ‘I love you’ for me and my husband! We got so many compliments and it looked adorable to the core! Finally, I decided to get matching PJs for the entire family! There are so many occasions to flaunt them!
1. Christmas: It’s a no-brainer and an age-old tradition to wake up on a Christmas morning wearing the same PJs everyone, gathering up around the Xmas tree, opening up presents, and sipping eggnog.
2. Family photoshoot: You can’t even be able to fathom how fast time flies if you don’t freeze them. Family photoshoots are a great way to immortalize precious moments. Kids grow up so incredibly fast that when you look back, it feels incredibly delightful to cherish those tiny faces and little outfits.
One of the most fun parts of a family photoshoot is outfit planning. I almost try to coordinate every outfit we wear when on a vacation or while taking pictures together. Here are a few options for how you can do so:
a. Opt for an entire matching set: These look really cute and feel very festive.
b. Opt for the same color theme: Choose a common hue in which everyone has an outfit: red, black, blue, white or denim, etc. It doesn’t look over the top, but the entire family looks adorable.
c. Choose a matching pattern. For example, wear stripes, everyone. It’s even better if you choose a common one like black and white stripes, nautical white and blue stripes, or red and white. The idea is to provide a seamless visual and no clashing of prints.
d: Coordinate in a planned way. This is one of my favorite ways to dress up my family. It is not over the top, yet very pleasing to the eyes.
Opt for complementing colors like black and white, or blue and black, or red and black, or any other combination. The idea is to dress up 2 members in one color and the other two in another. More the members, the better! Avoid prints in outfits as they clash with each other and appear visually chaotic. Always opt for solid colors especially when doing the two into two themes.
3. Commemorate special occasions. There is nothing more enjoyable than the whole family turning up in the exact same outfit for an important family celebration. Like the 50 wedding anniversary of your grandparents, or your grandma turning 70 or your cousin getting his dream job, etc etc. When the whole family gathers to celebrate, it better be fabulously visually memorable! Plan the outfits in advance along with the food and decor. There are so many stores that offer made-to-order matching outfits. Spoiler alert: These pictures will give you lifelong happy tear-jerking memories!
