I wrote a post on this exact topic last year, but I felt like it definitely needed some updating. If you could see our DMs, you would know that this time of year – EVERY YEAR – strikes fear in the heart of every mom in the world. What to wear for family photos? I hate that. I hate it SO much. I hate that SO many women feel this pressure! Holiday cards are supposed to be fun! They’re supposed to make everyone happy!
Like I said last year, my main thing with holiday cards is to BE YOURSELF. Do what is authentic and true to your family. Heck, last year our holiday cards went out with photos of David hysterically crying on the front. Because you know what? That is what really happened! He LOST IT in the middle of the shoot. That is David, and that is our family. You can see the whole thing >>> here.
Anyhow… this year, I’m not sure what we’re doing. Between the move, my chemical peel, and life… we’ll get to our holiday card photos when we get to them. But to ease the minds of all the mommas in our DMs wondering what to wear for their family photos… here are my best outfit ideas for holiday family photos.
Shop Holiday Family Photos Outfit Ideas:
Classic Holiday Look:
Emerald, navy and red. If you stick with those colors for holiday photos – you just can’t go wrong!
Neutrals ALWAYS look amazing together for family photos. Pairing ivory cableknits, camel cashmere, or grey cotton sweaters together with khakis or jeans is always a win!
When I am feeling lazy and I don’t want to figure out complete outfits for everyone in our family… I go the PJs route. It is amazing, easy and COZY every time!
My Favorite Places To Shop For Holiday Family Photos:
This is an amazing new boutique that we love and I have selected a couple of their items that I LOVE for holiday photos. You can get to their site >> here. The jacket I am wearing in this post is AMAZING for the holidays and I also LOVE the tartan mini skirt too!
I LOVE JCrew Factory for classic styles for the WHOLE family! This cape is my absolute favorite!
I LOVE Old Navy for basics for the whole family. They have adorable outerwear options that are easy to mix and match — and they have AWESOME inexpensive PJ options as well!
For the guys – you just cannot beat Bonobos for their classic shirting and chinos options!
I have a couple of different places on Amazon that I LOVE to shop for myself and for the kids. I LOVE these sweaters for me. They are PERFECT for any neutral photoshoot you are doing. I also LOVE this brand for the littles. They have amazing holiday dresses for girls – I just ordered Caroline a TON from here!
