A Relative’s Guide to Gifting Clothes (Instead Of Toys!) This Christmas

Tis the season for giving but Christmas gifts for kids don’t always have to be the toys they’re asking for this year. Especially if you are a distant relative, friend or coworker who’s not privy to their wishlist for Santa! Here’s a little gift guide for giving clothes that’ll not only be holiday gifts that parents welcome but also appreciate and utilize (until their kid’s next growth spurt!).

For The New Kid In The Fam (Newborn)

A baby’s first Christmas is always exciting but they can only wear so many “My First Christmas” bodysuits… Gift something to make new parents’ lives easier! A good Christmas present idea could include a multipack of cute bodysuits, pants or even outfit sets that mix & match easily to help give them back some time throughout their day.

For The Kid That Loves Anything Cool Or Cuddly (2-4 Years Old)

Toddlers are in the stage of discovery (& obsession!) so styles with their favorite animals like dinosaurs, cats or bears will be the perfect Christmas gift. They’ll love that they can grow their collection of one critter or dabble in a couple of their favorites!

For The Kid That Loves To Run Around (5-9 Years Old)

Comfort over style is what most elementary school kids will want to wear every day. Luckily, athleisure has become such a closet staple that embellished track jackets or hoodies with comfy coordinating joggers will be an awesome outfit to gift!

For The Kid Discovering Their Personal Style (9-11 Years Old)

Gifting big kids can be intimidating because of their growing exploration with personal style. Instead of stressing about giving something cool, think about giving them something useful! Cold weather accessories are seasonal, always needed and come in a range of fashions that’ll (for the most part) be easy to gift & blend with a kid’s unique style. Make sure to add a gift receipt, just in case!

The Ultimate Gift Add-On

Once you’ve picked out Christmas presents for kids, just add the finishing touch: a gift card! They’re a perfect surprise and let kids pick out what they really want or need.

Congrats! You’ve made it to the end of the gift guide. Christmas shopping for kids who aren’t your own will be easy now that you’re armed with great, non-toy present ideas. Keep calm and gift on!

Capturing Holiday Moments (And Style!) With Grandkids

The holidays are upon us, which means spending time with the grandkids! For so many grandparents, this time of year is what they look forward to the most. There’s nothing quite like seeing the anticipation on children’s faces as they wait for the big day to arrive or the excitement as they open up their presents.

Be sure to capture every moment so you can remember them for years to come! Try doing this by giving them the CUTEST holiday outfits (BONUS: great outfits = adorable pictures for your family photo album!) Consider surprising them with some of these festive looks this holiday season!

Baby’s First Holiday

The newest little gift in your life is ready for some holiday cheer (and probably a nap!). Your new grandbaby is only going to have their first holiday season once, so make it extra special by dressing baby in the ultimate outfit.

For girls, that means a festive jacquard dress. These styles include red and metallic options—perfect for Christmas. Since many of these dresses are sleeveless, don’t forget a coordinating cardigan to keep her warm. Be sure to accessorize her look with a matching headband and sweet little ballet flats.

For the new little man, outfits incorporating plaid button-downs and argyle sweaters are just so handsome! You can even try picking a sweater and button-down with coordinating colors or patterns to layer together. Pair either top with chinos—they’re comfy (and stylish!) enough to crawl in.

Holiday Dressy

The best part about holiday dressy styles at The Children’s Place is that there are matching outfits for toddlers and big kids! Just like the baby girl outfits, you can get your toddler and/or older granddaughters a jacquard dress full of holiday spirit. Then, add a personal touch with some super sparkly shoes so her style will shine with every step! And she’ll definitely need a purse to carry all the little gifts from her stocking. Then, consider finishing off her holiday outfit with necklaces, bracelets, and other jewelry.

Your grandson will look dapper in colorful plaid and argyle sweaters…just like the new baby boy in the family! However, he can dress up his holiday outfit even more. Get him a coordinating tie and suspenders—he’ll feel (and look) extra special. Don’t forget to make sure he’s dressed from head to toe by getting him some shoes and socks. Dressy slip-on shoes are comfy and match just about anything. He can even wear socks to match his Christmas sweater!

Something For Everyone – Matching Family PJ’s

Keep holiday style all in the family with matching family pajamas! Consider giving your family a sweet Christmas Eve surprise by getting them the perfect comfy and cozy pajamas to celebrate in. The best part? There’s something for everyone to wear…including you! What better way to capture your holiday memories?

Rock around the Christmas tree in super warm (and fun!) fleece Christmas pajamas. Our one-piece sleepers come in sizes for kids and adults. These styles feature holiday designs from Christmas emojis to “Santa’s Squad”.

Try some matching family PJ’s that your crew can wear all year long! Styles that declare Mom the Queen, show that your granddaughter’s the Princess, or your grandson is the Best Kid Ever are always a win. Don’t forget to check out PJ’s starring some of the trendiest things in kids’ fashion…unicorns and dinosaurs!

Pro Tip: Have everyone gather around the perfect backdrop for the ultimate holiday photo opportunity!

No matter what you choose, you’ll be sure to create the best holiday memories (dressed up or down!). It’s all about spending time with your family, so why not do so with the best holiday style? Be sure to share your Christmas moments with #MyStylePLACE for the chance to be featured!

Break a Leg (Not the Bank!): Outfit Ideas For Your Kids’ Holiday Concerts

Parents everywhere know that as the holidays approach, so do the annual “Holiday Concerts” at school. Most schools put on some type of holiday recital, typically involving the kids all standing on stage in the auditorium singing Christmas carols. And every year, the school tells you how to dress your kids for their concert (Spoiler: It’s usually in black and white).

Here are some concert outfit options that are certain to have them stealing the show.

Girls’ Standing Ovation Styles

When it comes to her holiday concert outfit, she has a few different options that won’t break the bank. A white long sleeve shirt is a great investment because she can wear it again and again. Pair this with a black skirt and ballet flats for a dressed-up look. A black skirt is great around this time of year because she can reuse it for all of her holiday celebrations. Don’t forget to complete her look with a pair of tights!

Black pants and boots are other staple styles that she can always wear, and they make for a great concert outfit. Make your life easier…she might already have this in her wardrobe! Complete her look with a trendy cold-shoulder top she’ll love in a light color.

You can never go wrong with the perfect holiday concert dress. Try a style with metallic or glitter details so she can sparkle on stage! She’ll be sure to shine in the spotlight. No matter what outfit you choose for her, try adding touches of rose gold and other metallic details to complement her white and black outfit. The perfect accessories, like shoes, jewelry and headbands, are sure to get the job done.

Boys’ Break-A-Leg Looks

Let’s be honest, Mom…boys usually dress similarly at these holiday concerts. It’s because a white oxford button-down shirt with black or navy chinos is a timeless outfit that never goes wrong. The best part is that he can get year-round use out of these styles since he can re-wear them separately with everything else in his closet. But don’t worry….there are ways to liven up his concert outfit.

Give his look a stylish twist…try substituting his plain white button-down for a light colored one with a stylish print. Or, instead of having him wear the usual dress shoes, add some fun with his favorite hi-top sneakers or slip-ons for a casual-dressy look.

Want to make his holiday concert outfit really stand out? Accessorize! Get him all dressed up with a coordinating tie or bowtie and suspenders set—he’ll look (and feel) extra special. No matter what you choose to dress him in, we know he’s going to knock your socks off (and the rest of the audience’s, too!).

So get ready to hear your kids sing their hearts out and look fantastic this holiday season.

Holiday Style Help: How To Wash Flip Sequins & Faux Fur

The holidays are fast approaching and that means gifting and dressing the kids up in so many sequined & faux fur styles. Because who doesn’t love a fab embellished party look?! However, their extra special outfits also require extra special care and attention. Washing these kinds of styles in a normal washer & dryer is usually a party “Don’t” (with some exceptions), so read on to learn what it takes to keep their sequins shining and faux furs furry all holiday season long!

How To Wash Flip Sequins

Your kid’s flip sequin collection has grown faster than they have and now you have to take care of them, too! From holographic sequins to shiny metallic ones, here are tips on how to wash sequins…the little discs that keep them blingin’.

  1. First thing’s first. Got stains? Dab ’em with a spot treatment. Do not rub the stain! Repeat: DO NOT RUB. Rubbing ruins the fabric itself, plus enlarges the stain’s diameter. Instead, test a patch of fabric with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. If it doesn’t damage the style, dab the swab at the stain working from outside and moving inwards. Keep dabbing until the swab absorbs the stain. Change to a new swab before it’s fully saturated to avoid redistributing the stain.
  2. Hand-wash in a clean sink or big basin. And try not to wash extremely different colored items in case they’re dyed a certain way… You don’t want things to bleed on each other.
  3. Always wash the style inside out! Focus on cleaning the actual fabric because that’s what gets the most action (especially with kids always running around & sweating!).
  4. Wash in cold water. Hot or warm water will run the risk of melting or altering the sequins, making for a sad kid and an awkward-fitting flip sequin experience.
  5. Wash with mild or all-natural detergents. Regular formula detergents have certain chemicals that can tarnish embellishments and harm delicate fibers.
  6. Swirl the style (or gently knead it). Do it enough to get it soapy! Then flip the style back out.
  7. Clean the sequins with a gentle, once-over swipe. Then flip the sequins and do the other side of the graphic.
  8. Rinse thoroughly & squeeze out the water. Fold the style into 3 or 4 folds, being careful not to squish the sequins in a way that moves or misplaces them too much. Then, gently squeeze out the water. Do not wring it out.
  9. Drip dry first (to get excess water out), then lay flat to dry. Their fave flip sequin style should be good as new in a couple of hours!

How To Clean Faux Fur

Furry jackets, sweaters and scarves are always fun style statements but they’re also big on needing extra TLC (tender loving laundry care). Most times you can get away with throwing them in the washer & hang drying, but always be sure to read the care label before you do so! A few general rules to follow…

  1. Got stains on their fave faux fur style? Follow the first step up above!
  2. Remove any pocket items. This’ll avoid ruining the fur while tumbling in the wash.
  3. Follow the same flip sequin washing steps 3, 4 and 5.
  4. Choose a hand wash or low spin cycle. The fur fibers will stay better intact. If you’re worried about machine washing, feel free to follow the flip sequin hand washing techniques.
  5. After washing, roll up the style in a clean dry towel. Squeeze out excess water. Do this with the style inside out, and then with its faux fur side out.
  6. Shake the faux fur to get its fluff back. Then hang dry it!
  7. Separate the dry fur with a wide-toothed comb. Be gentle and don’t tug the tangles too hard.

Washing special bedazzled or textured styles with extra care can be a little cumbersome, but worth it when it comes to getting their holiday party outfits to last through the season! These techniques will also help preserve the styles when they become hand-me-downs. Be sure to follow these tips & tricks…they’ll get the best out of their sparklin’ faves!

Matching Family Outfits: A Guide To Capturing The Best Holiday Style Ever

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.



Christmas Eve

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!

Christmas Day

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!

Which means…it’s time to team them up with Agent 3-In-1 and the Cold-Weather Crew (aka all our “snow-day approved” outdoor winter clothes for kids)!

Meet Agent 3-in-1

The water-resistant shell jacket is the outer layer that really saves the day when it comes to stopping the rain! Its water & wind resistant powers (plus sturdy storm flap!) are no match for the droplets to come. For tackling the extra-chilly snow, layer the shell & jacket together for a K.O. combo! Your kid will get twice the warmth & performance protection with its cozy fleece-lined hood & pockets, and the adjustable “no-snow” cuffs to keep out the snow.

Combine The Crew For Ultimate Protection

Complete your kids outerwear look with the rest of our Cold-Weather Crew: Captain Snowpant, Cadet Snowboot and their team of trusty Wonder Gloves. Each style coordinates perfectly with the 3-in-1 jacket colors …all while battling the cold. The fleece-lined gloves have sure-grip palms for making (& defeating) snowballs of all sizes. Plus, they’ll never lose each other thanks to the D-ring clips that keep ’em close together! Captain Snowpants is Agent 3-in-1’s main sidekick, sharing similar features like the fleece-lined upper leg and adjustable “no-snow” cuffs. Lastly, Cadet Snowboot’s faux Sherpa lining helps keep toes warm & cozy, but it also gets a kick out of stomping out snow with its heavy-duty treads.

Fighting the elements is easy with perfect winter outfits for kids! Just make it a priority to keep them warm & cozy by getting the whole outerwear crew together before the winter season is in full swing.

Tips & Tricks To Help Take The Best Holiday Card Photos

Already thinking about holiday card photos? You’re not alone!

In order to have those holiday photo cards ready to send out, you need to book your family Christmas pictures sooner rather than later. To make the most of those Christmas card pictures, here are some tips for what to wear and how to get the best family photos possible.

Should We Match?

YES! These days, it’s easy to find matching sibling outfits and styles for parents that compliment the matching outfits, so go all out! Whether it’s a theme, pattern, or color, you can all dress up or dress down — either way, everyone who receives your card will love the extra effort you put into coordinating outfits for your Christmas card photo shoot!

When Should We Take Our Photo?

You’ll want to schedule your family holiday pictures with enough lead time to get them back from your photographer and order your holiday photo cards. Also, leave enough time in case you need to have retakes. Coordinate with your photographer well enough in advance that neither of you feels the pressure of a looming deadline.

What Do We Need To Do To Be Prepared?

Getting an entire family clean, dressed, and properly groomed for photos can be stressful for parents, so plan wisely on the day of your photos. Have outfits hung and ready to go the night before, do as much prep work as possible (including having shoes ready, hair bows, and any other needs). Assemble a small kit including a lint roller, wet wipes, combs, brushes, and if you have really little ones, a spare outfit in case of diaper disasters.

Keep Everyone Happy During A Photo Shoot

In order to maximize smiles, schedule your shoot to accommodate naps and meals. Plan a fun family outing for afterward, and let the kids know about this pending treat. Have small, non-messy snacks on hand for children to enjoy in-between takes. Offer kids a quick break if they become tired or cranky during photos. Resist the urge to become impatient with them so you can keep the mood upbeat.

Should We Take “Creative” Photos?

Unique Christmas card picture ideas are usually successful only when the participants are excited about them. In other words, if your family is resistant to out-of-the-box ideas, don’t force the issue. Comfort is key for a successful holiday photo. Discuss your ideas and concerns with your photographer ahead of time, however, as they may have some creative suggestions you can present to your family. Just make sure that everyone is on board.

With a small amount of planning and preparation, this year’s holiday photos will be the best ones yet.

Creating A Kids Capsule Wardrobe: Dress Them For The Year (With Only 26 Pieces!)

Okay, so dressing your kids with only 26 items for a whole school year might seem like a stretch but it’s possible! Especially if getting dressed has become a point of anxiety for your kid or if laundry days have gotten too overwhelming for your family, that magic number (give or take) is the solution and it comes from the capsule wardrobe idea. What exactly is a capsule wardrobe? It’s a curated collection of clothing that mixes & matches together to make multiple outfits. It isn’t a new idea but it is a popular one that started in the adult fashion space and trickled down into the mix-n-match kids clothing world to help simplify busy lives.

Why do the capsule wardrobe?

Saves Time

For the kids that have a hard time choosing what to wear or give you a hard time on what you chose for them, the capsule collection will save the day! Fewer choices will make getting dressed in the mornings faster and easier.

Less Laundry

Most of us dread laundry day because the piles seem endless…especially when you’re a parent to more than one kid. With a capsule wardrobe, you’d be washing every week but it’ll be small loads that will also be easy for the kids to help sort (and put away)!

Empowers Their Creativity

Developing their personal style is the last benefit to having a kids capsule wardrobe. Working with just a couple of pieces will push your child to problem solve how to create a new look every day! Plus, as kids grow, they’ll have the chance to swap out styles and try something new.

How To Make A Capsule Wardrobe?

  • Make a checklist of all the styles they need. Don’t forget to take into account the climate you live in and adjust the number of pieces needed accordingly!
  • Next, take out all their clothes and start sorting them into 4 different piles: Keep, Give, Reuse and “Sentimental.” Keep should be the smallest pile, Give is for donations or hand-me-downs, and Reuse is for things that can be up-cycled into washcloths, quilts and more. If you’re emotionally attached to a couple of special pieces, the Sentimental pile is for you to store those memories away (but keep that collection EXTRA small!). To help with sorting, ask yourself these questions:
    1. Is it in good condition and is it good quality?
    2. Does it coordinate with at least 3 other items?
    3. Does the capsule wardrobe need this or do you just like it? (Use your best judgement!)
  • Once you’re done sorting, put the styles you keep back into the closet, cross reference it on your checklist and then head to the store to pick up what you’re missing. Don’t forget to ask yourself the same questions listed above to help make decisions. And know that it’s okay to continue editing the capsule collection even after your shopping trips until it’s to your liking (and your kids!).

The Checklist

  • 8-10 tops (keep these basic, but have fun with a couple of graphic tees!)
  • 3-4 pants
  • 3-4 pairs of shorts (1 denim pair + 1 chino pair + 2 active pairs is a good combo…)
  • 3-4 dresses and 2-3 skirts (for the girls!)
  • 1 sweatshirt
  • 1 light jacket
  • 1 heavy jacket
  • 1 pair of sneakers (pick a standout pair that coordinates with any outfit)
  • 1 pair of slip-on shoes (for easy on & off!)
  • 1 pair of dress shoes
  • 1 pair of sandals

Note: the above list is a suggested foundation for their capsule wardrobe. Keep in mind that where you live will vary what you need. You’ll also have to account for special occasion styles (like a suit!) or uniforms needed for extra-curricular activities.

Ready, set, capsule…

Capsule wardrobes may not work for everyone (especially if you love to dress up your kids!), but now that you’ve learned the fundamentals, you can tailor it in a way that works for your family. A kids capsule wardrobe can be daunting but it can also be rewarding – especially when it comes to laundry day!
