The holidays are upon us, which means…’tis the season for dressing up! Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas are celebrations that involve the whole family getting together. Bring your holiday style A-game by dressing your kids in matching and coordinating outfits!
Matching holiday outfits always add some extra fun to your festivities. Take it a step further and coordinate the outfits for all the kids in the family—not just yours! Try matching cousin styles, too, for an unforgettable photo opportunity. Another great benefit to dressing the kids in matching holiday outfits is that it gives you a goal when shopping for their annual Christmas dress or sweater. When you go into the store (in the midst of the holiday rush!) planning to coordinate all their looks, you’ll have a goal of what to shop for.
Now, get inspired! Check out some matching dressy and family Christmas pajama ideas below.
It’s all about the feast on this thankful day! If your family likes to have a formal dinner, make sure to keep their Thanksgiving outfits stylish and comfy. Velour knit dresses are a HUGE trend for this holiday season. Try dressing your girls in matching styles, but let them choose what accessories they want to wear – like tights, shoes, headbands or little pieces of jewelry. If you want to match your little guy to her, we recommend dressing him in a coordinating color. If her velvet dress is blue, try a blue oxford. Or, if you want to add some texture to his outfit, you can’t go wrong with a pair of corduroy pants for his Thanksgiving outfit.
Parenting-Pro Tip: Choose matching outfits that won’t stain. Your kids (like most!) will probably make a mess of themselves as they gobble down the turkey. Be sure to dress them in clothes that can be washed easily, and avoid super light colors.
You may have to dress them in formal attire for Christmas Eve dinner, but after the plates are cleared, bring out the family Christmas pajamas! Matching family Christmas pajamas bring so much fun to your celebration. Dress your kids (and all their cousins!) in holiday PJ’s, starring everything from Santa, to snowmen, to Christmas emojis, and more. Be sure to get a group picture of everyone in their Christmas outfits…it’s a memory you won’t want to forget!
The best part is that we have Christmas pajamas for the whole family, including the adults! You can join in on the holiday matching style by grabbing a pair for yourself, and even the other adults in the fam!
After all the presents under the tree are opened, it’s time to get ’em dressed up. No matter what your plans for the day are, you can’t go wrong with styling them in pretty dresses and dapper tops. Try an oh-so-festive jacquard dress for your girls. These styles scream Christmas, and some have metallic and glitter finishes for an extra sparkly touch. For boys, oxford button-downs and cozy holiday sweaters paired with chinos are classic looks. Bring his holiday style up a notch by accessorizing him in a coordinating tie and suspenders set.
The best way to make sure your boys and girls match is by focusing on a specific color. And because it just so happens to be Christmas Day, red is perfect!
