Do you (or will you) dress your multiples in the same outfit, coordinating outfits (different colors) or completely different?

For moms with multiples that choose their own clothes, how long did you dress them alike if at all? How are their taste in clothes now?

For pictures I would dress them in coordinating outfits and when we go to the zoo or an amusement parks I have shirts for them that are bright yellow that say "warning twins...stay 200 feet back" just so that I can spot them.

Funny thing about them dressing themselves....they have some of the same shirts (like the one above or their school shirt) and lots of the same color. They are in seperate bedrooms and usually don't see each other until they are dressed....but once a month they come out wearing either the same shirt or something in the same color.

I might try to dress them in something similar, but not the same. Similar meaning, sweater and pants, but not the same sweater or maybe different colored pants. I like them feeling like they can be individuals and choose their clothes. Of course, while they are too young to pick their own clothes, I might have a few similar outfits they can wear while together.

I do both..I got a lot of matching outfits from the shower and I also have a lot of coordinating ones...

It just really depends on where we are going, if we are doing pics, etc...

I'll admit when they were babies I occasionally dressed them the same, but I think you get tired of being asked over and over "Are they twins?" at that point you want to say "No, I dress them alike for fun." It didn't happen too often now.

Now I try to avoid buying the same outfit, or I will buy 1 outfit in 2 different colors.. but we are probably going to be going to an amusement park within the month so I went out the other day and got the same outfit for all three of them (big sister included). As mentioned, they are easier to spot when dressed alike (not that I ever let them out of my sight )

I'll most likely coordinate them at first and definitely for pictures. But, once they dress themselves it will be their choice.

I dressed my boys alike quite a bit when they were babies. Now that they are older, they sometimes like to pick out their own clothes. I want them to wear what they want to wear although I do like to dress them alike for special occasions and pictures.
