Hanukkah Shirts: Eight Crazy Shirt Designs

Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday that takes place in the winter months toward the end of the Gregorian calendar year, sometime between November and December. It is a celebration also known as the Festival of Lights and follows the miracle of Hanukkah, in which oil for a lantern lasted eight nights when it should have only lasted one.

While we often see the Christmas décor and fashion pieces, Hanukkah has some lovely and stylish outfits and pieces you won’t want to miss.

Here at PixieLane, we’re sharing some of our top looks for the next Hanukkah celebration or party with loved ones.

What Should I Wear to Hanukkah Celebrations? 

Like all holiday celebrations, the perfect Hanukkah outfit will vary depending on the occasion. You can dress more formally if you’re attending an event with colleagues or co-workers or more casually if the Hanukkah party is geared toward family and friends.

As with all events, you can always ask the host for the dress code in advance. It’s important to note that Hanukkah parties often have a lot of food, so you want to make sure you dress comfortably in order to enjoy all the great dishes. Hanukkah colors are white and blue or silver and blue, so if you’re stumped for ideas, you can always adjust your palette.  

Which Shirts Should I Wear This Holiday Season?

If you’re looking to dress up for a more casual event or to find pieces that the whole family is sure to enjoy, PixieLane has you covered.

Here are some of our favorite patterns and options for Hanukkah party shirts you can try out today:

Graphic Tees

Kids always look cute in graphic tees—and so do moms. Graphic tees are comfortable and easy to wash, which is good news for dinner party guests. You can also really elevate the look of your graphic tee shirt with a cute sweater, fun, and comfortable shoes, or appropriate jewelry.

Find holiday-themed graphic tees with designs and styles for the season, like latkes, dreidels, and menorahs.

Slogan Shirts

And you can take graphic tees to the next level with slogan shirts, as well. There are many great slogan shirts to check out and enjoy this holiday season, which means you and your little ones are sure to find something you really love.

When it comes to picking out slogan tees for a Hanukkah party, especially if you are a non-Jewish person, it’s a good idea to check with your host or do your research to make sure the saying is appropriate.

Camo

Camo is a great option for busy kids on the go. The dark colors mean you don’t need to worry about racing home to wash after a spill, and camo can be elevated with a few cute pieces. 

Match your kids’ camo patterns with denim, converse, cute beanies, and more. You can find cute camo dresses for girls or even fun camo pattern options that can be dressed up for a comfortable look for parents.

Tie-Dye

Tie-dye is a classic pattern for a reason. If you really want to get into the holiday spirit, pick out a tie-dye pattern in shades of blue and white. Whatever color you pick for yourself or your little ones, it’s sure to add a fun and festive feel to the occasion.

Stars

The Star of David (also called the Magen David) is a six-pointed star and a common symbol associated with Judaism since the 17th century.

You can find lovely Star of David patterns to wear for the next Hanukkah party, or embrace the festiveness of stars and star patterns with a lovely shirt or dress. Parents and kids alike will look cute in stars.

Animal Print

Walk on the wild side this holiday season with bold and beautiful animal prints for kids and parents. Here at PixieLane, we carry animal print outfits and patterns in many colors and shades, but it’s always a fun and festive look. Dress your kids up or add a touch of animal print boldness to your next holiday outfit.

Smiley Faces

The holidays are worth smiling about. Celebrate the season with a smile on your face with smiley face patterns. Your little ones will love the festive nature of smiley face shirts in bright and bold colors, and you can dress the look up with a cute sweater or jacket so that it fits the festivities.

Ruffle Sleeves

When you want to elevate an outfit just a little bit, the ruffle sleeve is the way to go. Ruffle sleeves look great on short sleeves shirts, dresses, and more, and they’re a comfortable but adorable option for many great events.

Kids will look chic and classy in their ruffle sleeve shirts but will still be able to play games and enjoy holiday dinner. And ruffle sleeves are a great way for moms to stay comfortable and mobile but celebrate the holiday in style.
