Salt-Water Sandals Mummy and Me Selection
Coordinated family fashion, or twinning outfits as it’s also known, has been around for a long time. The fashion designer Jeanne Lanvin is credited with bringing the concept to life in 1908 when she created a collection of dresses for women and young girls inspired by her eleven year old daughter, Marguerite.
Clothing historians have observed that matching mum and daughter outfits is a way of reinforcing the importance of the mother daughter bond and at SWHQ we’re all for that.
Synchronising your entire wardrobes might be a step too far for some but it’s hard to resist the charm of a little family coordination. You can dip your toes in the mum and me outfits trend with mum and daughter matching sandals. Scroll on to discover the joys of mini me style.

There are several Salt-Water Sandal styles that start in a child size and go all the way through to adult. The Classic, the Retro, the Shark and the Original can all be worn by young and old, giving you endless options for matching mini me looks. Why not strengthen your squad value with the Salt-Water Original? They start in a child size UK 4/ EU 20/21 and go all the way up to an adult size UK 8/ EU 41/42.

If you’d prefer your little one to wear the softer Sun-San sole, a great option for mini me fashion is to pair the Salt-Water Original with the Sun-San Swimmer which features the same woven straps across the toes but comes on the thicker sole.

The Shark is another great way to create mini me looks for the family as it comes on the thinner Salt-Water sole for adults and the thicker sole in the Sun-San range for children. There’s even a very sweet version for babies called the Sailor. This fisherman style comes in a variety of colours and offers extra protection over the toes.

Alternatively, you could work some mum and me fashion into your wardrobes this summer by mixing styles but matching colours. Choose whichever Salt-Water sandal you think suits the individual best and then pick a colour that everyone likes.
