Whether it is an outright rebellion or a subtle homage, it's fairly safe to say that our mothers have played a large role in defining our personal style. That's why today we're paying tribute to the stylish mothers out there leading by example.  From casual shopping trips to high fashion events, these mothers are instilling an appreciation for style and design in the hearts and minds of their little ones.  

What's the greatest style lesson you learned from your mother?  Tell us that you #GotItFromMyMama on twitter @SHOEmeca.

Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio sports stripes and matching black sneakers with her son Noah.  When it comes to mother-son outfit coordination - and not getting too matchy-matchy - this mother knows best.

Jessica Alba & Honor

Jessica Alba and her daughter Honor complete their casual outfits with clean lined, simple flats.  While undeniably similar in style, they're just different enough in colour and detail that they don't look overly coordinated.  Honor's sense of style is definitely growing to echo that of her mother's laid back west coast vibe.

Katie Holmes & Suri

Katie Holmes' daughter Suri is famous for being a formidable fashionista at only 9 years old, and we all know she got that style sense from her mama.  Spotted out shopping together in matching purple flats, Katie and Suri have such sharply contrasting outfits that their identical shoes aren't crossing into kitschy territory.

Kim and her daughter North West were spotted leaving daddy Kanye's fashion show with Adidas in New York earlier this year all bundled up and sporting similar black lace-up boots. There's no doubt growing up in such an aesthetically-aware family, baby Nori will develop a very distinct taste in fashion, and we can't wait to see the sartorial path she takes!
