Look alike?


Look alike?
Hi dear colleagues,
I would like some help with the correct English for the times when you see for instance a little girl with her mum and you want to say that they look very much alike. So what exactly would you say in this situation?

She looks just like you?
She resembles you?
She ´s just a little copy of you?
She has the same face features as you?

Correct me if I ´m wrong and add some more ideas if possible please?

Thank you

She looks just like you/she resembles you/she ´s a little copy of you  ... yes, these are fine. ´Resembles ´ is a little less strong. ´She ´s a little copy ´ - informal usage.

A few more: She ´s your spitting image! She ´s the image of you! You are like two peas in a pod! She ´s got your very face on! She ´s a chip off the old block! (more about character than appearance).

´She looks just like you ´ would be the better phrase.
Another expression to use would be - ´she ´s the spitting image of you ´
