Trust us, nothing gets more “likes” on Instagram than an #ootd shot of you and your little one in twinning outfits. Not only does it look super cute in photos, coordinating your outfits also helps you bond with Junior and makes for a great conversation-starter. No wonder Singapore parents can’t get enough of this twinning trend.
Check out these labels and brands that offer trendy, coordinated outfits for families, including matching footwear. Not only are these brands big on comfort and versatility, some of them also feature twinning wear for dads and sons for a complete fam-bam look.
The popular homegrown fashion label launched its first kids capsule collection during Chinese New Year this year. Some of the matching sets are still available, so grab yours if you haven’t – it’s best for ages 12 months to five years.
It will bring in more twinning sets for mums and kids this summer, in unisex styles and fun prints that are designed in-house, says a spokesperson. It will also expand the kids’ size range to fit kids up to seven years old. Love, Bonito’s kids collection are priced from $31.90 to $49.90; socks are $6.90 per pair.

Known for its clean-cut, breezy silhouettes and signature candy-hued abstract prints, Our Second Nature launched its first kids capsule collection, called Our Mini Nature, in Dec 2018. Since then, it’s produced several more kids’ ranges that twin well with outfits for mummies.
We like that every piece of kids’ apparel is thoughtfully designed, for example, buttons down the back for ease of dressing a wriggly toddler and soft elastic gathering at the waist for shorts for comfort.

Maison Q started in 2015 offering kids’ fashion in quirky designs in vividly-coloured palettes and happy prints. Its collections are designed to be versatile – think reversible dresses, shirts and onesies that can be worn two ways.
For the first time, the brand has launched a twinning collection for families this Raya, with coordinated outfits for babies and toddlers aged six months onwards, tweens aged eight to 13 years as well as mums and dads.
Stock up on designer twinning outfits – without breaking the bank – at Uniqlo. The Japanese label regularly launches new collabs with famed designers.
For Spring/Summer 2020, mummies and daughters can go matchy-matchy in the Uniqlo and Marimekko collection, which will be launching kids and babywear on June 12. The range includes toddler dressers and leggings, as well as bodysuits for newborns, delivered in the same prints as adult sizes.
The Uniqlo-produced kids and babywear are priced accessibly between $9.90 and $19.90. For comparison, a bodysuit from Finnish design house Marimekko’s main line would cost about 45 Euros (S$70).
The women collection is already available online. Shop here.
Fayth launched its first Mommy and Me collection around Mothers’ Day 2019, featuring mini-me outfits for little ones from aged 12 months to six years old.
Designed in-house, the Mommy and Me range features sweet, girly and comfortable pieces in soothing, pastel hues that make for great #twinning shots on social media.
We especially love the twinning outfits from the Amber range, featuring an exclusive print designed in-house. Check out the quirky details like self-tie knots for dresses and a smart Mandarin collar for the boys’ shirt (yes, this range caters to dad and boys too!).
Most of the items from the Amber range are now sold out, but look out for its next twinning collection. Founder Janis Gan says there are plans to launch another exclusive twinning range for the entire family in late-April this year.
Available at https://fayth.com and at its stores in Plaza Singapura, City Link Mall, and Tampines 1.
The Singapore-based label is named after its founder Eileen Tay’s daughter, Elizabeth. Eileen, a mum of three, launched her first capsule collection in 2016 featuring vintage-inspired outfits and accessories for babies and kids. The following year, she expanded the range to include twinning wear for mums and dads.
What’s unique about the brand is its focus on a sustainable, slow-fashion approach. Eileen and her team ensure that every piece is made to last, and can be passed down to future generations.
Signature timeless pieces are produced locally using organic cotton, fine Japanese linen and heritage Liberty prints, all of which give off a vintage-inspired vibe. Each design is produced in limited quantities.
In keeping with its low-waste principle, adults can also pre-order outfits to twin with their kids. Kids’ outfits are priced from $55 for a skirt while adult versions start from $158.
Take your twinning outfits with your mini-me a step further with Pazzion’s Mom & Me footwear collection. It features kid-sized versions of its popular adult designs suitable for kids aged three to eight.
Introduced in 2011, the mother-daughter twinning collection started off as a mini personal project for the brand’s founder, Tom Ng, who had difficulty finding comfortable trendy shoes for his daughter.
Feedback following the 2011 launch turned out positive, and twinning footwear has been a mainstay at Pazzion since then. Mummy’s shoes are priced from $76 while daughter’s shoes start from $59.
