Katie Wright shows you where to shop the best celebrity-inspired sets for twinning with your kids.
Usually when it comes to celebrity fashion inspiration, we pore over what the stars are wearing in their Instagram or paparazzi pics, working out how we can steal their style and make it work for us.
But there’s a new trend which encompasses not only what the famous grown-ups are wearing, but the outfits their children are sporting too.
Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy has been twinning with her mum since she was a toddler, the singer’s lucky seven-year-old being treated to designer dresses and even some custom creations for red carpet appearances.
Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster is only one and already the adorable tot has been seen on Instagram in a variety of bespoke ‘mini me’ outfits designed to match her reality star mum’s, the most recent being ruched blue dresses during their summer holiday in Italy.
Now the twinning trend has hit the high street, encompassing everything from swimwear to shoes, so you can make like a celeb and coordinate with your kids at home or on holiday.
