Mother-daughter matching outfits seem to have been a thing since, IDK, outfits have been a thing (we love you always, Laura Ashley) — but what about the best mommy-and-me outfits for kids of all genders? These days, mother-kid matching outfits seem to run the gamut from chic dresses to tiny bikinis to trendy rompers, even down to matching floral headbands, with matchy-matchy girly-girly options aplenty. If, however, girly-girly isn’t your thing (or your kid’s), where does that leave you? What if you’re the mom of a son, or a tomboy, or a non-binary kid, or someone who just plain hates florals? Shouldn’t you still be allowed to match your kiddo? Of course you should, thanks to the gender-neutral mommy-and-me matching outfit options ahead..
Because you should not have to be the same sex or gender as your kid to win at twinning. Gender is a spectrum, people. Rompers for all! Anyway, we’ve rounded up some amazing (and Instagram-worthy) looks for moms and kids of all genders that you will definitely want to rock this year. Because really, the important thing is that your kiddo — and you — are feeling great about what you’re wearing. And isn’t matching pretty darn fun, too?
Plus, just think of the eye-roll you’ll get when you look back on photos of your mom-and-me twinning days when your little one is taller than you. (Or when you bust out the pics at an opportune moment — say, at their school graduation. Not that I would ever do that. I’m definitely going to do that.) Enjoy all the cutest and definitely not embarrassing mom-and-me matching parent-kid outfits ahead.
