When kids are little, yeah it's cute. I know a family with 4 girls, and the ages span from 5th grade (10 years old) down to 3 years old. None are twins. Yet they all dress identical, down to the shoes and matching hair style with ribbon. Last year, the oldest was one of my students, and even more ironic was that I also had the 7th grade boy-the only boy of the family. It's cute on the little ones, but not so cute at the older age, IMO. There's no individuality at all for the older girls who are school age.
I also have 2 teacher friends, both who have twins. The girls are 2 1/2, and they sometimes are in matching outfts, usually for special occassions. Not for every day though. The 5 1/2 year old boys tend to like the same shirts, but different shorts. They take turns picking out what shirt to wear that day.
