Where to Shop for Coordinating Outfits for Siblings

While you may not want to make an everyday habit of dressing your children in coordinating outfits, it can be the perfect way to pull everyone together for a family portrait or special occasion. However, unless you’re handy with a sewing machine and have the time to devote to part-time fashion design, you’ll have to find stores that offer coordinating outfits. If you want to make a fashion statement with your brood without dressing them in identical outfits in their respective sizes, these websites are great places to shop for outfits that complement one another, rather than matching perfectly.
  • Wooden Soldier – This New Hampshire-based children’s boutique offers an array of fashion-forward special-occasion wear, from Communion to Easter outfits. There’s also a sizable selection of brother/sister outfits and sibling ensembles available. Many of the pieces on WoodenSoldier.com are exclusive designs that you won’t see anywhere else, ensuring that your kids are unique and fashionable at every party and in every photo.
  • Etsy – A collective of artisans and crafters, Etsy is an online one-stop-shop for one-of-a-kind fashions. The sheer number of merchants specializing in children’s apparel is staggering, and most of the artists and creators who sell their goods on Etsy will accept custom orders. Not only will your kids’ outfits coordinate, you’ll be able to take an active role in the design. If you have special colors, fabrics or other requirements that would be best met by a custom design, Etsy may be your best bet.
  • Lilabee Clothing – From Big Sister/Big Brother sets to coordinating outfits for multiples, Lilabee has it all. The Siblings line is touted as clothing “made by twins for twins and multiples.” The personalized onesies are an especially adorable touch for identical twins.
  • CWDkids – Not only does Cute Well-Dressed Kids stock a full line of coordinating sibling outfits, but also a line of parent/child clothing. If you want to make sure that everyone in a family portrait is wearing complementing outfits, CWDkids is the place to go. Sibling sets run the gamut from pajamas to beachwear, so there’s definitely something for every occasion. If you live in the Richmond, Virginia area, you can also visit CWDkids’s brick-and-mortar store for a more hands-on shopping experience.
  • Just Multiples – Created by a twin, JustMultiples.com is a clearinghouse for all things sibling. From birth announcements to matching clothing, this site is absolutely a one-stop-shop. There’s also a line for preemies, which is particularly thoughtful for parents of newborn, premature multiples. In addition to clothing for the smallest members of the family, JustMultiples.com stocks plenty of novelty tees for the rest of the household.
  • AddieKat Boutique – The proprietor of AddieKat Boutique named her online store after her own two children, and is the sole designer/creator behind the label. Every item and sibling set is custom made in high-end boutique style. Holiday outfits, birthday outfits for twins and a variety of coordinating separates for every occasion are available through AddieKat, all at reasonable prices. AddieKat also offers a selection of awareness-ribbon outfits for kids that want to show their support of a particular cause. Because each item or set is custom made, don’t expect your purchases to ship out overnight.
  • Children’s Cottage – A mother-daughter team owns and operates Children’s Cottage, a high-end boutique for the smaller set. In addition to national brands, proprietors Barbara Ward and Donna Ward Black also design their own line, Caroline Bradlee. Monogrammed and personalized clothing is also available, along with a variety of accessories, shoes and hats.
These are only a small sampling of the online boutiques with coordinating sibling lines, but they’re wonderful places to start. Keep an eye out for complementary outfits scattered in other categories of the sites, as well. Sometimes certain colors or elements are popular enough to be repeated in some way across sizing and styles, making it possible to mix and match your own coordinating set within a particular clothing line.
