Matching mother daughter dresses for Chinese New Year

We’re now 5 weeks away from the Chinese New Year. This year, Chinese New Year falls on 19 and 20 of February. I started the new year shopping for Sophie early because it’s always easier and more fun to dress my little one.

One of her outfits is this cheongsam that I ordered from Taobao in December. I opted for a mess conventional colour choice, dark navy blue with bright red and floral prints. Made of cotton, it was comfortable for our humid enough.

Ready for Chinese New Year right after Christmas!

The only complaint I have, which is It actually looks so nice, I wished they had an adult version so that I can go all matchy-matchy with my mini-me and that’s when I started my search for matching mother and daughter dresses for Chinese New Year.

Mother and daughter matching dresses for Chinese New Year

Glitter Glam and Mary Had A Little Lamb

Glitter Glam is a home-grown brand that offers contemporary and fashionable work wear. Two years ago, they introduced a  collaboration between Glitter Glam and Mary Had A Little Lamb – the mother-and-child collection and what you can find are mini-me versions of the same stylish and modern looking dresses.

Matching Leigh tops

For mummies looking for matching tops with your boys, Mary Had a Little Lamb also carries some tops though the collection is not as extensive as the range for girls.

Glitter Glam Sophie

We own a matching set from Glittler Glam as well which never fails to get compliments as the fit and quality of their dresses is great. The dresses are good for office wear or if we feel more fancy for the weekends. And don’t miss some of their deals now for SG50 too.

Where to find them: Harbourfront Centre #02-110 as well as Isetan and BHG Bugis counters

Miz Apparels

For the office ladies working in the CBD area, you may be familair with Miz Apparels where they offer quality pieces from Korea. Beside ladies apparels and accessories, key highlights include ‘Mummy & Children’ apparels and they had so many pieces that caught my eye like these matching sets below .

Matching cheongsam tops for a more casual look

Prices are more steep as the matching sets retails at $159 for adults and $69 for kids. But the workmanship and quality fabric means the dresses go a long way too. Dresses come in limited quantity so the nicer designs always run fast.

Where to find them: 1 Raffles Place, #04-16/17, Marina Bay Link Mall, #B2-13

The Happy Cheongsam

The Happy Cheongsam creates a modern twist to the traditional cheongsam with their sweet and classy dresses. These designs certainly put the fun in cheongsam making them suitable for everyday wear as well.

While they offer limited matching mother and daughter dresses, you can tell the thought that goes behind that as the design is not entirely the same making it more interesting and flattering to both mother and daughter.

Strawberry Pumpkin (TaoBao)

Last but not the least, I’ve crawled through Taobao and found this shop which offers family outfits. From what I noticed, there are some local clothing shops that gets from the same supplier and they do carry pretty nice designs that neither mother or father will cringe wearing them.

I have not personally ordered from them before so I cannot comment on the quality of their clothings judging from the feedback,  they do get fair comments from those who have purchased from them.

    Thanks for this useful article, now I know where to find matching mum and boys set. Btw, miz apparels is quite expensive. An adult cheongsam is $159 for most designs. Gingersnaps also has very nice matching dresses. I got 2 sets from there.

    • Susan January 19, 2015 at 11:26 pm Reply

      Yes the prices are quite expensive but when I tried them on, it’s evident that their workmanship and quality of the fabric is quite good. Thanks for sharing about Gingersnaps. Shall go check them out too.

    This is a great list you’ve curated! There’s Our Bitsy Prints with their Elly collaboration too.

    I saw the Gingersnaps matching ones – I used to ask them why they didn’t produce matching sets, and now they do! But I think they are also on the pricier side…
