    A friend of mine with 3 girls does it. I once asked her why and her response made me laugh - because when she's keeping an eye on them at the playground/kids' party/etc it's easier to remember what they're all wearing if it's the same thing, rather than 3 different outfits.

    I've got 4 daughters and buy them the same clothes if I really love it but never let them wear it at the same time except at Christmas.. I usually dress them in matching outfits then. As they get older they've been trying to wear the same outfits but I don't let them!

    I say do it. Who cares what people think its clothes!
    Im sure people cringe at me putting ds in miss matching clothing but if it fits and is clean he can wear it if it goes or not.

    I would say kids and old people can get away with this only though.. cute!

    Am I the only one who sometimes looks at my son as I put him in the car on the way out and realise that we are pretty much wearing the same thing??? Usually jeans and same colour tee or both wearing something with navy and white stripe. Awkward!

    Can I just say that I am only into kids wearing matching outfits for a bit of a laugh on special occasions. Xmas is perfect. Other then that I agree it's a bit off- not great for developing individual identity etc etc....

    I buy matching outfits for my 2 boys occasionally. I figure I may as well do it now while they are little and won't complain! They are almost 3 and 1.5 years. I think it's cute to do sometimes. They look especially cute at the beAch in their matching rashies and board shorts

    For special occasions it's pretty cute. But not for everyday. I dressed my boys the same for my wedding, but not for everyday.

    What about when it's the kids choosing to wear the same? My older two sometimes choose to wear the same. I don't make them change their outfits, they love it. They find it fun...as far as I can see that is them expressing themselves.

    I don't usually, but then on special occasions I may do it.

    For instance for ds3s christening I bought ds1 and 2 the same jeans and jumpers from industrie. The jumpers were a diff colour.

    This weekend they're actually wearing the exact same thing. Same colour and all. They're only 4 and 3 so I don't mind it sometimes.
