For some other mom’s it will be the other way around. You might not be able to wait until you and your daughter can be going out looking coordinated in the same dress. If your girl is too small yet you can both wear mother daughter shirts which are great for a younger child. Whether it is something you look forward to or that you are doing it for her, you friends and family are sure to appreciate how great you will both look together and most people will adore seeing the both of you dressed the same.

Alternatively, they could make a great gift for someone. They could be perfect for your wife, girlfriend or any other friend or relative and their daughter. Trying to buy any type of clothing for others people can be difficult to get right but with so many occasions requiring gifts throughout the year, a pair of dresses might solve a problem of what to buy this year. Many of us end up buying the same kind of things all the time so although this could be more of a gamble getting it right it could end up being worth it. On the plus side you are giving something that is personal and includes their daughter so they will be more forgiving if they are slightly wrong. You could of course go for an easier choice and buy them a pair of hats which come in numerous designs both funny and cute.

There are different styles for different occasions and times of the year and they can be purchased and worn at any time but they are generally worn during different celebrations. Occasions such as Christmas, Easter, Mother’s day, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Engagements and Weddings spring to mind as perfect times to be wearing these together. Another idea for  which to purchase them would be for a special bonding day together wearing the same dress as a mark of a wonderful day spent together.

Some if not most of the clothes you end up trying out end in rejection and with so much choice it can be hard to find that perfect item. Dresses are included in this and the same can be said for those that match. In some ways this choice can be even more difficult because you have two people to please. A mothers and daughters style when it comes to fashion is most likely to be different so buying a dress that both like may require some compromise from both parties. To purchase for others you would need to consider both persons overall preference of style, designs they like to wear, what colors they prefer and whether they would like some bold or one that is more on the subtle side and blends in a little more.

A Dress That Is Matching For Mother And Daughter Tells A Story

Looking at clothing or accessories that are designed for various combinations of couples or families it is the mommy and me ranges that tend to have the most positive and loved response. For many people seeing romantic couples is matching items is a step too far but for moms and their little ones it is perfectly acceptable and looks quite adorable.

Although generally worn for special celebrations there is nothing to stop you wearing these mother and daughter dresses at any time of the year. Although some maybe themed for certain festivities, many will be a general style that will be alright to wear all the year around. In fact, you could have a couple of them in your closet, one for all around wear and the other to save for special occasions. Whether it is you who encourages your daughter to wear the same as you or her wanting to copy you there are many matching mommy and me outfits you can try out together for times like staying at home to doing some kind of activity and even swimsuits for both. Dresses will usually be saved for going out for either a celebration, something formal, lunch, dinner or anywhere that you may wish to dress up for.

If you both love a dress then there are various styles for many different occasions. There are many formal and designer designs for glam up and many that have a more casual look for day to day wear that comes in many different patterns and colors. There are those that are perfect for a summer walk in the park and those for a winter day out to a restaurant. And of course on another positive note, the more you need in your collection for different times the more of an excuse you need to add to your wardrobe.

One of the things that may influence the design in which you choose is the reaction you both might expect when wearing them out. Some of these will be designed to stand out, be fun and draw a laugh where as others might go for a more elegant look that show off your amazing style and there are those that want to portray you both as ultra cute and for people to offer you compliments and adoration.

When your next holiday or vacation is not too far away and you need to start buying your holiday clothing, a pair of  matching dresses will be a great thing to add to the list. You can both choose a bright color, perhaps a Hawaiian look for that tropical sun. It is a great way to kick off the holiday season for the both of you and treating yourselves to a day shopping certainly will make planning your vacation a lot of fun and perhaps help counting down the time.

These may be purchased as a matching set but you will also have a new dress each in your collection and although you will have had in mind to wear them together there is now nothing stopping you wearing them when out alone. It would be a shame to limit such a great looking dress to certain times when you go out together. Obviously some items like this are designed to be seen together and will not always make sense when worn apart. However, for the most part these do not follow this type of couple idea and for most of them there will be nothing to stop you wearing it separately. There is also the wonderful feeling that you know your both wore them together and had a great time so you are also wearing something that has some great memories.

There are also many shades with darker and lighter varieties tending to change with the seasons.

Although we may immediately think of spring and summer for wearing floral the darker versions are great for fall and winter. This makes floral dresses a versatile all rounder ready to be worn throughout the year.

Blue

Blue is officially the worlds favorite color and when you consider how important dresses are to a woman’s closet, we should see many with blue dresses tucked away. While we will say everyone should have a collection of dresses available to them, they may not necessarily be blue. However blue is a fantastic color to wear and ask anyone to try it. Blue is a color that fits in during the daytime or night as well as all four seasons. With different shades we are more likely to see light blues worn during the spring and summer with darker shades of blue reserved for fall and winter.

Dresses Plus Size

Many plus size women are looking for ways to flatter their curves and in a way this is the same for a lot of body sizes and shapes. Much of it is down to body shape, whether that is a pear, apple or hourglass and other hybrids. An apple shape will usually have a large chest with much of the weight centered on the upper part of the body and tummy. In this case off shoulder dresses are probably the best to go for. A pair shape will carry their weight mainly around the hips with a small waist and upper half, the best dress type being ones that are fitted or flared. Hourglass figures are large around the chest, hips and bottom with a dress that hugs the body and a nice belt around the waist to really show off the shape.

Taking one design and making fit for all does not always work, as an example, arm sizes not catered for. Dresses made for plus sizes can work better than many other items of clothing as they just seem to look great whatever. Finding the right one for your body shape will help even further at showing off your curves but isn’t always necessary and sometimes comfort is the priority.

Many people will consider summer to be their favorite season as most people love the warmth and freedom it brings to be able to do a lot more thing outdoors without worrying about getting wet or feeling cold. Days will also tend to last longer and this means being able to do more in daylight hours which often feels safer.

Tea Party

Tea parties can be informal or formal affairs, private ones for the family to get together, ones just for some fun as a game, afternoon or evening high teas for other friends and family. They can be held outdoors or indoors, at family homes or at hotels or restaurants. There are numerous ways to hold a tea party and your preference will be based on your own personalities.

For some mothers and their children it might be tea in the garden with beautiful cakes, the finest china but still having some fun with the clothes and trying to make it a vintage affair in matching or coordinated colors.

Afternoon teas will usually take place from around 3pm to 5pm with high tea occurring around 5pm to 7pm. The former is usually referred to as afternoon tea or low tea and the high and low come from the type of table the tea is served on. Afternoon or low tea will usually be served on a coffee table and include snacks of scones, cakes and sandwiches whereas high tea will be served at a dinner table and include some more filling foods.

If you are hosting a tea party etiquette says that as the host either you will pour or the pouring can be assigned to a close family member or friend. It should always be served from the right and the tea stirred in a half moon motion without the spoon ever hitting the cup. The food you serve to your guests will normally consist of sandwiches without their crusts and desserts – small cakes and scones. These will be beautifully arrange on a three tier stand where scones are on the top tier, sandwiches in the middle and cakes at the bottom. You should also have a number of different teas to serve, for example Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Assam, Chamomile, Rose, Lavender herbal and Mint. There are many more depending on your budget and you should also include caffeinated, decaffeinated, a variety of herbal and of course white and brown sugars. Arrange some nice bouquets of flowers which pack plenty of color around the outdoor area or a few bunches if inside. If you intention is to dress appropriately for the occasion then your guests will most definitely want some photographs so set aside a picturesque area where they can take their photos.

Photo Shoot

During your photoshoot, how you want to be represented in your clothing will be a totally personal choice but there are some tips to picking out clothes for you to look your best.

Don’t Wear Colors That Are Too Bright

Bright colors are going to catch peoples eyes and unless you want the attention taken away from your face it is best to avoid wearing them. Colors like reds, bright greens, oranges and yellows are bad and can be highly reflective.

Darker Clothes For Face

Wearing darker clothes to your photo shoot will mean the body can blend in with the background which in turn will make the faces the most prominent part.

Avoid Patterns And Logos

Patterns and logos can be a distraction to the overall look of the photograph but they can also cause distortions.

Wear Long Sleeves And Long Pants

Any exposed skin will cause a distraction from the face and it is the face we want to draw people to.

Accessories

It is best to avoid too many accessories because they too can end distracting the viewer.

Hair Style

Try to keep your hair in a simple style but most important of all is to keep it off the face.

Neckline

An open neckline will sometimes give the impression of having a thick neck when photographed. To help keep that neck looking slim it is best to wear round necks or V necks.

These are just a few tips, most of which are there to keep the focus on the face. Again this is your personal preference and it may be that you want to show off your clothing more, in which case the opposite of most of the above cases is true. You will certainly want to ensure your mommy and me look stands out during your photoshoot to show off how cute you both look.

The modern equivalents do not have the history to go with them and certainly no story but they are more readily available and being new, unworn.

If you love white enough to want to wear it throughout the year the off-white is a good choice when they weather turns cooler. When wearing white you want a good quality fabric to ensure it is not see through. Tighter dresses in white will highlight every single bulge so aim for a looser fit.

A party dress is quite self explanatory but parties can mean many different events and celebrations. A few of these include balls, birthday parties, dinner, surprise, cocktail, beach, garden, pool, graduation, fundraising, housewarming, banquet, Christmas, Halloween and many more. What this means is that one person may interpret what they consider to be a party as different to another. With that in mind there are many different types of clothing, including dresses that will suit each type of party. A beach party and a cocktail party are going to want to different styles of dress.

Looking Stylish In Custom Dresses That Match Each Other

Wearing dresses that match with your mom or daughter create wonderful moments and although you can continue this look as your daughter grows up it will be when she is young that the times dressing like mommy will be most memorable and fun. It is these times you will want to treasure as it will not be long before she is grown up and doesn’t have as so much time for you. You will still get to dress up for some celebrations but you won’t get that feeling all of the time whereas when she is little they will want all your time dedicated to them.

This is an important thing to think about because many of us are often guilty of not having enough time to give our children. We all get busy with work and other things in our lives and other things and people are put off until another day which sometimes never comes. If you have not been dedicating enough time to your little one, perhaps making up for with a nice dress and a special day out will be a good start to change this.

Dressing up like you could be one of those ideas she has had for a long time and now you feel is the right time to just do it. In which case you have a few options available to you. You could plan a terrific mom and daughter bonding day and fill it with all the things she enjoys doing and begin the day with a pair of beautiful dresses for each of you to wear. Alternatively, you could introduce the idea to her and plan the whole thing out together. You can start by choosing your dress together and then plan the day out. They are both good approaches, one has the element of surprise while the other you can guarantee you will be doing all the things she enjoys because you planned it together.

Perhaps this idea is not coming from either mother or daughter but from another relative. You could be thinking of surprising your wife or girlfriend and daughter with a nice gift for a special day. This is a great thought but also one that could be hard to pull off. Picking out a dress for another person or in this case two people is going to be hard to get right.
More often than not it can be difficult for them to choose for themselves so trying to achieve this is a hard task. If it is something you wish to go ahead with then consider their fashion style, what they already like to wear, what colors they like to wear the most and what materials. If you get it right it will turn out to be a lovely surprise for them.

If you are buying for someone else it will usually be for a special celebration like Christmas, Easter, birthdays or Mother’s  day and a mother and daughter may also buy them for a special day out or a wedding or holiday/ vacation. A bonding day doing all of your child’s favorite things could be a great way to get them out of the house if you have problems with them glued to their phones, laptops or TV’s.

The are a wide range of choices in terms of styles, designs and colors and making that final choice can be time consuming and a difficult decision. Clothing can often portray different personalities and moods and this will be another factor to add into your check list, this along with the fact this niche of clothing can be fun or cute all adds up to a dress that will be hard to get perfect and all we can say to that is, why pick one when you can have two or three.
