Never thought mother-daughter dresses were a thing? Well, it has been in trend ever since Hollywood celebrities started being all matchy matchy with their little ones. A good example would be Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise.
Whether Suri’s dressed in gingham, stripes or even a single colour dresscode, Katie Holmes is sure to match her own clothing to hers, making it such an adorable sight to see the iconic Mother-Daughter duo go about town!
Even the queen of booty – Kim Kardashian – is a keen follower of this trend! She dresses baby North West in similar colours and styles as the outfits she’s clad in.
Time for you to hop on the bandwagon too! No better reason to justify the purchase of the new dresses in your closet than to tell the hubby that you bought them along with your daughter’s as a set. Hopefully, you’ll be spared any chiding from him! You can even drop him hints to get you and your daughter some of these apparel as your gift for the upcoming Mothers’ Day, which falls on 14 May this year. Now, let’s acquaint you with several styles.
Picnic at the park
Be it a picnic at the park or a day out to Botanic Gardens, make sure you stand out from the surroundings of nature with this set of brilliantly patterned floral dresses for both mother and daughter. Rest assured, you wouldn’t be a wallflower when you’re looking so feminine and exuding so much vintage charm.
Taking the young’un to the newest café in town for a leisurely Saturday brunch? There’s no better outfit than this oh-so-comfy-yet-ultra-cute t-shirt dress to don! Not only is it super comfortable to wear especially in our hot and humid climate, it also makes you look at least ten years younger when you’re dressed like this. Be prepared to be mistaken by strangers for your daughter’s sister instead. You’ll get a kick out of that, feeling younger too. *winks
Perhaps you’re thinking of taking your little princess to watch Coppélia, a comic ballet now showing at Esplanade Theatre, or other dance recitals of the current season presented by the Singapore Dance Theatre in May.
Why not dress the part with this set of matching getup, consisting of a white long-sleeved lace blouson with a black swan appliqué paired with an elegant black tulle skirt? Extra points if you wear your daughter’s and your hair up in a French chignon – a neat updo hairstyle. Très chic!
Outdoor Garden soirée
Received an invitation to a garden-themed wedding solemnisation of a relative from your extended family that you absolutely have to attend? Look stunning together with your daughter in this lovely lilac mother-and-daughter dress and you will surely be receiving plenty of compliments throughout the day – without outshining the bride of course! But who can blame you if you two do end up stealing some of the limelight with your girly frocks?
Formal dinner affair
If you’re attending the wedding banquet afterwards at night as well, make sure to continue your fashionista streak by donning this well-curated attire of black lace blouson and floral patterned flouncy skirt. This simplifies the process of dressing to the nines, doesn’t it? You’ll be set to impress fellow guests at the same dinner, looking this immaculate.

It’s stylish and modest at the same time, making it appropriate for functions and can even double up as one of your workwear staples too. Win!
