Celebrity Mums who dress their kids the same. 16 July 2015, 0 Comments

From First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia to some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, celebrities and their offspring dressing the same is one of the latest trends that has caught the attention of the mainstream and now is trickling down to the common man and woman on concrete jungles everywhere. Imitation can be one of the most sincere forms of flattery and just like amongst everyday parents, celebrities have been passing down their own sense of style to their offspring, which has been captured by magazines around the world. When the New York Times recognizes teens that raid their parents wardrobes as a fashion pinnacle here to stay, it cements the notion that style is expanding into a different realm once again.

Seen on the streets together and photographed by the paparazzi, playing the game of sartorial dress-up has become a sensation in Hollywood and there are more than a few notable celebrities that have placed their own spin on the trend.

The Beckhams

Considered one of the most stylish women in the world, Spice Girl and designer Victoria Beckham, alongside her husband footballer and model David Beckham, have turned fashion into a cash cow for their family, including their three sons and young daughter Harper. David Beckham has parlayed his football career into an enviable one into the world of fashion, following in the footsteps of his wife Victoria. Although their sons have made a name for themselves as child models, their youngest child and only daughter, Harper, has generated a massive amount of publicity since she was six months old, always photographed in the same color schemes or mini-me apparel of her stylish mom.

Kate Moss

As one of the world’s original supermodels, Kate Moss has always had the cameras on her, whether on runways or jetsetting around the world. Now a mother, her good looks have been inherited by her daughter Lila Grace, who she has been seen strolling around the streets of London in matching striped, short-sleeved shirts and similar black pants.

Jessica Alba

The television and silver screen actress may be known for her beauty, but she is also known for her two daughters that are prominently featured in magazines dressed like their superstar mother. Always style gurus, daughter Honor has been spotted walking around Los Angeles with her mother in matching black, white and gray outfits.

Kim Kardashian

Reality television’s reigning queen, Kim Kardashian, has always had her hand in the fashion industry, even before becoming a household name. Now that she is married to Kanye West, has her own legion of fans, and a young daughter, she is constantly barraged by the press with daughter North West, who has been shown dressing like her famous father and her stylish mother. With both parents in the fashion industry, it is clear already that young West is destined to be a style icon before she can even speak.

Dressing Alike: The Method Behind the Madness

Naturally, there are a slew of fashion labels helping people to carry out this style slant and Australian designer Dimity Bourke is one of the leading fashion houses specializing in stylish, sophisticated clothing for both women and children. Whether you are a celebrity or not, the one thing unifying everyone is wearing great clothes that leave a lasting impression. Many women and young girls are interested in emulating their mother’s style and Dimity Bourke is creating fashionable lines of clothes that hit the mark on all fronts. Whether shopping on Madison Avenue, at a mall or online, it is evident that little girls and mothers are eager to make a style statement that is in unison. The age of ‘consumer lookalike’ is here to stay and fashion labels will continue to crank out designs that match the desires of the general public.

Similar styles between parents and children is a trend that has made such an impact that it has been researched as part of social studies, which show that it may be children influencing their parents sense of style more than the other way around. According to these studies, parents – particularly mothers and daughters – are inclined to imitate one another when they consider the other an expert in an area. Teen girls in particular prefer to copy celebrity culture and now as more women wear celebrity brands, it is a natural progression that the two converge and become more in sync.
