Some parents feel it’s harmless, convenient and can even help establish the unique relationship between twins. But other parents argue that dressing their twins as though they’re one person has a detrimental effect on their individualism.
Choosing personalised outfits for each child can help them feel recognised as individuals from a young age, and even improve their self-worth as they grow up.
Statistics show that identical twins are dressed alike more often than fraternal twins. Though psychologists don’t recommend dressing twins alike, the maximum age to do so is by three years, which is when children start expressing their own personalities and opinions. You could try dressing them in coordinating outfits, instead, or asking them what they’d like to wear (with guidance, of course!).
