I have to admit, as the mom of two girls it can get pretty fun dressing them up both separately and together. When it comes time to take monthly photos for our youngest, we also like capturing the two of them together so we can look back at how they grew over the years.
When you're picking clothes for your kids for a monthly photo or for family/holiday portraits, it's easy to buy two sizes of the same outfit and have them match exactly. But it's way more fun and unique for their outfits to coordinate rather than match (in the same way that siblings might look like each other without being identical twins).
Press play below to see our newest Kids' Style video above for a handful of fun sibling outfits for spring…
And, here are a few tips for coordinating sibling outfits for family or special occasion photos…
1. Make sure they are wearing pieces of the same season. While they don't need to be wearing the same types of pieces (both in dresses or both in pants), make sure both kids look like they're both dressed for spring, summer, winter, etc.
2. Have their colors coordinate without being too matchy-matchy. Especially if you're picking outfits for photos, have a general color palette your working with (neutrals, bright colors, pink and green, etc.) and pick clothing that has accents of those colors. For example, if you want to bring hot pink into the outfits, pick pieces for each child that has hot pink but still select different outfits for each.
3. Just have fun with it! Kids clothes are so much more fun than grown-up clothes so you don't have to make these too serious or stoic. Kids grow up so fast, and preserving memories by taking monthly or yearly photos will be something you'll look back and treasure forever. Pick an easy and comfortable location that your kids will have fun in, and snap away!
