Retro Mother Daughter Outfit Ideas from Heart of Haute

Matching mother and daughter (and even entire family) outfits were once common. They were particularly popular in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and through the 1970s. Celebrity moms showed off their daughters in matching dresses, and the image was seen often in ads.

Patterns for matching outfits that you could sew or knit were available everywhere. I imagine that part of this was convenience; if you are buying the fabric or yarn for one garment, why not get just a little more and make two? Or, perhaps daughter's outfit was made from the fabric leftover from mom's. Why did this go out of style? It could be the fact that few people sew or knit clothing at home anymore.

If you want to recreate this retro fashion family tradition, Heart of Haute has lots of options for coordinated looks. We offer vintage inspired, hand made looks and quality - with no seam ripping or bobbin threading for you! Teresa Becker has been designing "Mommy and Me" dresses for over 20 years.

Our popular Chambray Anchor print is available in three adult dress styles, an adult A Line skirt, and our adorable Baby Sailor dress for girls. Our colorful Russian Dolls print is easy to match with, and is available in our adult Monique dress, adult Gypsy Skirt, and our Enchanted Child dress. A family of animal lovers? Check out the options in our Blue Kittens and the bold black, white, and red It's Raining Cats.

Our girls clothing is available in sizes 2T through 6x. If you have an older daughter who wants to get in on the look, our adult XS is equal to a girls size large or 12, and our adult small is equal to a girls size large or 14. If you are searching for a special look for family photos, a holiday, family reunion, deployment homecoming, or any memorable event - stand out and create new traditions with a mother and daughter look from Heart of Haute.
