Dressing up like mum or dad, who has not tried it before? Most children would have stumbled around at least once in mum’s high heels, dipped into her make-up, or gotten tangled in dad’s tie. Kids who want to dress like mummy and daddy (and their parents who want them to) now have quite a few options to choose from. Inside scopes out some.

1. Dress in Mum’s Best

Singapore homegrown women’s fashion label, Glitter Glam, was so successful that two years ago, it decided to start a line of children’s clothing that were basically shrunk-down versions of their women’s wear. They called the label, Marry Had A Little Lamb, a fitting moniker. The mini-me outfits are absolutely delightful because they do not make the little ones look like they are trying to grow up too quickly yet look adult enough for mum so she does not look too cutesy. Best of all, it makes dressing your wee-sized wannabe like you a breeze.

Quite a few brands carry clothes for adults as well as children. While they do not deliberately set out to offer child-sized versions of their adult fashion, they do have pieces in their kids’ section that look a lot like those in their adult collection. With brands like these, the fun comes from finding similar pieces to mix and match so you and your little one can sync your styles.
