Toddler Holiday Outfits: How To Choose The Right One

When you think about holiday style, images of matching plaid PJ sets, velvet dresses, and cozy sweaters probably come to mind. Whether you’re dressing for a holiday dinner or Christmas card photos, there are plenty of opportunities to show off your family’s style. 

Still, dressing a toddler can be tricky. Our little ones love to play outdoors, and there’s usually a spill or two at the dinner table. We need holiday outfits as durable as they are adorable, which can feel like a tall order when you’re shopping for your next holiday event.

PixieLane is here to help with tips and tricks to find the perfect holiday wardrobe for your toddler.

How Can I Pick the Most Adorable Toddler Holiday Outfit?

Shopping for Christmas outfits is a lot of fun. The possibilities are endless, and the magic of the holiday season makes even the smallest purchase feel special. When you’re shopping for your toddler’s holiday outfits, there are three major things to keep in mind: comfort, durability, and style. 

It’s Comfortable

First and foremost, your toddler needs to be comfortable in whatever they wear. Holiday events can last for hours, and you want your toddler’s spirits to be bright.

There’s nothing quite like watching your toddler twirl around in her favorite new party dress. When your little ones are comfortable in their holiday clothes, you can rest assured that they feel as great as they look. 

Choose soft, blended fabrics that can stretch and move with your toddler, and make sure your little ones love the way they look: confidence is key. 

It’s Durable

As moms, we know that spills, rips, and stains are all business as usual when it comes to dressing toddlers. Kids love climbing trees, running through the mud, and coloring outside the lines, and we love seeing them have fun with their friends and family at holiday events

Instead of putting your toddler in a restrictive holiday outfit that will probably be ruined by dessert, find a holiday look made with kids in mind. Dressing your toddlers in durable holiday clothing will help them have fun, and it’ll give you one less thing to worry about in the holiday shuffle.

It’s Festive

From holiday dinners with your family and friends to school events to annual holiday traditions, everyone is excited to see little toddlers in their adorable, festive holiday outfits. 

This is one of the most adorable, fun shopping opportunities of the year, and the holiday spirit should be priority number one. You can find holiday outfits that are durable and comfortable while embracing the whimsy and joy of the holiday season.

Which Styles Will My Toddler Love?

You already know what your toddler likes and dislikes. Maybe they have a favorite school day hoodie or a fancy dress they want to wear every day. While shopping for the holidays, mix styles they already love with a hint of holiday cheer. 

From tie-dye to ruffle sleeves to Mommy and Me sets, there are so many adorable options for your toddler’s holiday wardrobe. 

Tie-Dye

Tie-dye wardrobe for the holidays? Why not! Tie-dye is a versatile pattern that your toddler can wear any time of the year. Red, green, or beige tie-dye loungewear is perfect for festive nights by the fire with hot cocoa, while colorful blue tie-dye pieces are an adorable look for a mid-day game of dreidel.

Ruffle Sleeves

Dress up a casual holiday outfit with ruffle sleeves! You can find ruffle sleeves on a variety of jumpsuits, tops, rompers, and dresses for a festive sprinkle of holiday joy. 

Whether you’re going to a formal event in your favorite ruffle-sleeved, glittery dress, or you just want to add a special touch to a casual sweater, ruffle sleeves are a great way to get into the spirit of the season.

Slogan Tees

Slogan t-shirts are always a sure-fire way to get your little one smiling. Pair your toddler’s slogan tee with sweatpants to keep them warm in the colder weather, or dress it up under an adorable, tiny suit for a trendy spin on formal wear. 

Best of all, it’s easy to find slogan tees made especially for the holiday season with festive sayings and holiday puns.

Mommy and Me Matching

Nothing says family fun like Mommy and Me matching outfits. Coordinated family outfits look great in holiday photos, and they’re an easy way to stick together at crowded holiday events. Wear matching family outfits on your annual holiday Disneyland trip to easily spot each other in the crowd or be the most stylish family at your local tree lighting celebration. 

No matter what your holiday traditions may be, matching family outfits are a practical and adorable way to have some family fun. 

Plaid Pajamas

Plaid pajamas are a holiday classic for a reason. They make any occasion fun and memorable, and you’ll cherish your Christmas morning photos for years to come. Not only are plaid PJs the most comfortable style of the season, but they’re also another opportunity to match with the whole family.

Merry and Bright: Clothes That Are Out of Sight

There’s no time like the holiday season. No matter which winter holiday you celebrate, festive outfits are a time-honored way to embrace togetherness and have a little family fun. 

From casual loungewear for nights by the fire to fancy attire for family events, holiday shopping is an adorable opportunity to spend some quality time with your toddlers. With these tips and tricks from PixieLane, you’ll be able to find the cutest looks of the season that your toddler will love!
