There’s something extra special about snapping a few holiday photos with your loved ones. Not only does it help you to capture a memory of time spent with your family, but it’s also a great option if you’re planning to send out holiday cards to friends and family.

Wrangling the whole family together for a holiday photoshoot may feel overwhelming, but don’t worry. PixieLane has you covered when it comes to cute clothes, so you can focus on the experience and spending time with the people you love most.

What Should My Family Wear for Holiday Photoshoots? 

You’ve taken the time to plan a family holiday photoshoot, but what should everyone wear when the time comes?

Here are a few cute options that the whole family is sure to enjoy:

Classic Trends

You can’t go wrong with the classics. If you’re looking to achieve that lovely holiday vibe, consider a few traditional trends, like plaid patterns or matching sweaters. These looks will never steer you wrong.

Matching Sets

Capture the coziness of the holiday season with matching top and bottom outfits that are all about that special morning. They’re cute and comfortable and allow for a full range of movement. This means you won’t have to worry about your kids feeling itchy or uncomfortable during the photo shoot.

Coordinated Colors

One of the traditional looks for a family photoshoot that always delivers is the coordinated colors style. That may mean you all match, you go for ombre shades, you mix up different colors for the season, or you each wear a piece or accessory in one color to tie the whole look together.

What Is the Best Color To Wear for Pictures? 

If you’re looking to embrace bold and beautiful colors, it can be difficult to know where to start. 

Discover a few great color options for your next family holiday photoshoot.

Deep Jewel Tones

Jewel tones are classy and beautiful, and they always add a little bit of that holiday charm to the scene. Dark red and dark green are two gorgeous jewel tone shades, and they’re perfect for embracing the holiday season.

Darker Neutrals

It’s easy to match the whole family up in darker neutrals, and you won’t have to worry about spots or stains showing on the day of the photoshoot. Your family likely already owns a few of these staple pieces, so it’s easy to get started with some of the clothes already in your closet.

Earthy Browns

Or maybe you’re all about those fairytale vibes this holiday season. Earthy brown colors are warm and inviting and match with a little touch of bright color well. They can be paired with cute accessories and shoes easily. If you’re planning to have an outdoor photoshoot, earthy browns are a great option, as well.

Which Cute Matching Outfits Should We Try? 

If you’re looking to try out matching outfits for the whole family, you have a lot of great options. 

Here are a few that you’ll want to think about trying for the next holiday photoshoot:

Tie-Dye Jumpsuits

Tie-dye is always festive, and if you love a really celebratory look, then tie-dye is a great way to go. Tie-dye can be found in many different colors, especially for the holidays, and you can also have your favorite decals, like trees, reindeer, or other unique and fun holiday symbols adhered to the tie-dye jumpsuit. They’re cute and comfortable, and jumpsuits are fun for the whole family.

Tie-Dye Sweat Suits

If you have little kids and want to be able to swap out pieces without worry, then a tie-dye sweatsuit can be a fun alternative to jumpsuits. Pick your favorite tie-dye colors and find a fun background to match. The pictures are sure to turn out cute every time, and they’re a great way to represent your family’s personality.

Mommy and Mini Green Tie Dye T-Shirts

Mommy and Me outfits are always fun and festive, especially around the holidays. Blend the best of Mommy and Me sets with tie-dye and holiday colors and embrace gorgeous and comfortable green tie-dye t-shirts. These outfits are fun, and you’ll be able to wear the shirt again and again.

Mother-Daughter Dresses

This is a great option for many different types of holiday photos, and the dresses can be used for all sorts of celebrations all year long.

You can’t go wrong with cozy sweatpants! If you all match sweatpants in cute colors, you can have fun and personalized tops to match in shades of holiday colors or featuring your favorite holiday characters. This is especially cute for photoshoots at home by your tree or in your decorated family room.

Black Leggings

Black leggings can match any style or look, and they’re a versatile piece that you can use again and again. They’re also great for busy toddlers who are always on the move and can be matched with your favorite holiday pieces.
