Some of our favorite holiday traditions include all the family members. When you were a kid, you might remember making pies with Grandma or wrapping presents with Dad. Heading out to the local hill to go sledding after that first snowfall is a feeling you’ll never forget. Setting the table for the big family dinner with the special napkins and dinnerware--it’s just a perfectly special time of year. It’s even the time when you got along better with your little brother even though he shook all the presents to guess what was inside.
Being with family is the start of all holiday magic. This year make it something to remember with a fabulous set of matching outfits. There are so many options to choose from. You can go the pajamas route to make for an extra playful holiday photo card. Or maybe everyone wears a coordinating scarf and hat combo. Some colorful and festive cabin socks paired with comfy sweaters are a look everyone will enjoy. And you can always include the family pet. Read on for some suggestions about how to keep the family celebrating the holiday season’s joy in comfy, matching ensembles.
Nothing can beat the classic family outfit coordination: pajamas. They make great Christmas gifts, they’re always comfy. Everyone loves lounging around in PJs. So step up your game this year with matching family Christmas pajamas in the bold red and blue plaid or teal and navy. Drawstring pants and button-up shirts are cozy for every member of the fam including the kids. If you want to go the more whimsical route, navy owl or holiday kitties are a bit more playful. Your kids will adore the fun prints and the flannel fabric.
Imagine waking up to a snowy Saturday morning, the windows frosted, everything is silent and covered in white. The kids spent the day in their matching flannel pajamas doing puzzles and reading their favorite Christmas stories. It’s a magical family moment. And we haven’t forgotten Hanukkah—the gorgeous blue Fairisle print adorned with menorahs is elegant and cozy all at the same time. Stay in your pajamas all day because, why not?
We haven’t forgotten about ways to keep your feet warm. Slippers are an easy way to keep the family coordinated and comfy. Your daughter will go nuts for the doggie slippers, and your son surely will hop around in his green frogs. Mom can get in on the animal fun with some adult-sized cat and dog slippers or sleepy owls to spend the day inside and curled up.
If you’re a socks kind of person, there are tons of prints and designs for Mom, Dad, Auntie, Grandma, even the whole extended family. Fuzzy slippers are perfect for the holidays, especially crew cut style for men and women in deep-sea navy snowflake or blackberry outdoor Fair Isle. And for your extra little ones, we’ve got toddler fleece booties in an adorable Christmas plaid, complete with a rib-knit top to keep it snug at the ankle and a rubber outsole to keep them sturdy on their feet.
When you hit the slopes or the local neighborhood sledding hill, keep track of everyone in coordinating winter hats and scarves. The easiest way to spot your kiddos as they slide down the hill? A bright hat with a pom-pom on top. The girls knit hat in navy snowflake with a big faux fur pom-pom coordinates great with a women’s Fairisle blue beanie with matching pom. We’ve got Dad on lock, too—a deep-sea navy snowflake cap with blue and white pom is extra warm because of the jersey knit.
If you’re looking for a more outdoorsy, cabin-in-the-woods vibe, then grab a set of trapper-style hats complete with ear flaps and extra insulation. The women’s version is a lovely natural cocoa color with warm fleece lining, and the kids’ trappers come in blue or a bold buffalo check.
Another fabulous way to coordinate for the holidays is to dress everyone in coordinating colors in the same type of garment. The best part? These items can be reused during other parts of the year. Wearing them as a family during the holidays gives the look an extra special touch.
Dress everyone in a pair of dark pants—maybe navy tights for the girls and some solid corduroy leggings for Mom. Then go for a similar style or neckline for all the coordinating tops. Our sweaters for girls come in a variety of cuts similar to those for adults. The cotton modal V-neck in burgundy or evergreen complements nicely with the women’s version in the same color palette. Maybe Dad and daughter can match in burgundy while Mom and son are in Christmas tree green. This kind of color blocking makes for fabulous holiday card photos or a fun dinner out.
Matching outfits bring the family together. With these looks and fun patterns in pajamas, sweaters, and accessories, the Christmas presents will practically wrap themselves.
