DH & I were having a giggle today at my mums obsession with buying matching outfits for my 2 DS's (26mths) apart.
She rings me on average once per week with excitement at finding them both something new & matchy.
I get that dressing multiples alike is quite common, but I'm not sure if dressing brothers (or sisters) identically is cute or cruel.

Dressing siblings alike?

I think it's a bit odd tbh. I always dress DD in clothes that suit her personality so I wouldn't be a fan or matching outfits.

My girls are 18 months apart, and I swore I would NEVER dress the same... Umm, I've done it 3 times now, LOL; it's just way to cute not too! :-)

I'm guilty of it. My girls are 19 months apart and several times I've bought them outfits from the same range, not so they're matching, just coordinated.

I was dressed alike to my sister for special occasions (11 months apart) ... My memory is we always quite liked it. My DD loves to dress alike to her older cousin.
My two nephews (who are 8 years apart in age) are often dressed the same - I think they look silly though - maybe because of the age gap, or the types of clothes they are put in?

I think it's cute to coordinate, but not be the same.

A handful of times my dd1 & 2 have worn matching outfits when they were probably under the 3 yr mark. Never bought by me mainly grandparents etc as my two oldest are 14 mths apart, they did look cute. Now at ages 7 & 6 I think they would kill me if I tried lol

My girls are 17 months apart. I dress them in the same pj's. It's just so cute. Day clothes, no. DD2 lives in hand me downs so she would be stuck in the same stuff forever if I did that

DS has such a unique personality that I'm actually quite fussy about the clothes that he wears - a lot of stuff people pick for him just really isn't him!
Dressing a sibling like him just doesn't make sense and to be honest, I don't really think it looks that cute. But each to their own.
