Are you sitting down? Good, because Associate Market Editor Ira Fraklin has a daring wardrobe suggestion to see you through the holidays and into 2017: Trade matchy-matchy mama and-me dressing for a complementary approach. Not just will this streamline your shopping, which is a blessing all by itself, but it guarantees that you’ll stand out from the crowd. If you wear a Royal Stewart tartan and the children sport red Lennox, you’ll look like part of a group—and an in vogue one at that—in all – important family picture, that holy grail of card-sending parents.
This corresponding concept can be extended beyond mother and child to sibling dressing, as well. “Rather than putting two young ladies in matching dresses,” says Ira, “put the eldest in a red silk Isabel Garreton dress and the most youngest in a Baby CZ with a red velvet scarf.” While you’re busy, why not move beyond the traditional red and green and consider navy, sparkle, and shine?
