Matching outfits can be a great way to make memories, have fun, and add a sense of friendship and camaraderie to the next great adventure. There are many reasons to consider matching the outfits between your little ones and maybe even finding a grown-up piece or two to fit the theme for yourself.

Whatever the next great family event might hold, PixieLane has you covered. We’re here to help you find the clothes you and your kids are sure to love, so you can focus on spending time with loved ones.

Here’s what you’ll want to consider about matching your family’s outfits:

Where Can Kids Wear Their Matching Outfits? 

That perfect matching outfit is going to vary depending on the event and occasion, and there are many fun events and occasions that call for matching looks.

Take a look at a few great places for your kids to match:

Family Holiday Photos

A coordinated holiday photo is always a classic. Not only are holiday photos an adorable way to share your life with friends and family, but the outfits can really reflect who you are. It can be difficult to get kids into uncomfortable clothes, but leggings, PJs, and comfy dresses, like the kind you’ll find here at PixieLane, are all great options for a cute and comfy holiday photoshoot.

Family Picture Day

Who says you have to wait for the holidays to get a look you love? Family picture day is the perfect opportunity for mixing and matching pieces and accessories for all the kids. Parents can get in on the fun, coordinated look with accessories and matching colors or patterns to fit the season or theme.

Family Vacations

Not only is it super cute to match in family vacation photos, but it can be a useful tool, as well. It’s easy to keep track of the whole family during your adventures and to make sure they can always reconnect with you when you all have matching looks. Plus, those candid shots are sure to be adorable.

What Styles Should We Buy? 

When you’re ready to find super fun and cute matching looks for the next adventure or picture day, PixieLane has you covered.

Here are some of our favorite matching outfits for kids:


Dresses are great for kids who love their look but don’t want to give up the fun. They’re comfortable and can be scaled up or toned down, depending on the formality of the occasion. Plus, they’re easy to swap out for clean clothes when it comes to dirt or grass stains.


Jumpsuits are always cute and cool, and double (or triple) the jumpsuits mean double (or triple) the fun. Jumpsuits allow for a full range of movement and plenty of comfort. Their chic style means you have a complete outfit—and that’s before your kids add their favorite accessories.


There are so many reasons parents and kids alike love t-shirts. They’re comfortable, easy to clean, and great for lots of different occasions. Take your t-shirt game to the next level with cute matching t-shirts. Maybe they’re customized for family gatherings or events, or maybe they feature fun patterns, shapes, and sayings that fit your family.  

Sweat Sets

Kids can match themselves and each other all in one cute outfit. Sweat sets come in so many fun patterns and colors, and they provide a great range of movement and comfort, which means your matching little ones are ready for whatever the day might bring.  

What Are the Trendiest Matching Outfits for Kids?

The next time your kids ask for matching outfits, or you plan a family picture day, here are some of the cute and trendy patterns and styles that you’ll want to reach for.


Tie-dye is great for kids. It’s fun and festive, and you don’t have to worry about stains showing right away. Your kids can match the tie-dye pattern or take it a step further and match colors as well to show that they really belong together.

Leopard Print

What’s not to love about a leopard print? Show your fiercest wild things off in cute leopard print pants, jumpsuits, accessories, and more. Plus, leopard print is a great choice for matching Mommy and Me outfits, as well.


Lilac is a lovely color for the warm weather and especially perfect for holidays and events. It’s cute but never boring and looks so sweet on comfortable dresses. If your little ones love princess vibes, then lilac is the way to go.

Multi-Colored Splatter

And if lilac is chic and classic for the fancier holidays, then multi-color splatter is for the party in the backyard to follow. Splatter patterns are bold, bright, and artsy, and those are just a few of the reasons that kids love them so much.

This pattern is a great way to show off your family’s creative spirit and an especially good fit for messy kids who don’t always keep their clothes clean.


Show off the center of your universe with cute, star-inspired matching clothes. There are so many different star patterns to pick from, which makes them a great option for kids who want to express their own taste while still matching their siblings. You can even find star-themed clothes and designs for fancier occasions, and star outfits are a great way to share the fun of science and exploration with your family.

A Matching Batch

Matching your kids has many benefits, and it’s a great way to encourage companionship and camaraderie between siblings. With so many fun and bold options to pick from, including cute patterns like tie-dye and leopard, your kids are sure to find a look they really love. That means the whole family can embrace one cute style for the next holiday photo or family vacation.
