What’s more fun than getting into the holiday spirit with your little ones? Whether you love dressing up for Halloween in a family costume or you’re looking to take fun and festive family pictures to send to loved ones, there’s something special about making holiday memories in super cute seasonal outfits.

PixieLane is here to help you and your family find that perfect look every time. Our clothes are designed to meet the event and occasion in comfort and cuteness for parents and kids alike, and they’ll love picking out the next great holiday look.

What Are Classic Holiday Outfits for Toddlers? 

You can’t go wrong with the classics. Take a look at some of our favorite looks and styles for toddlers around the holidays.

Matching PJ Sets

Finding a matching PJ set for the whole family is a lot of fun. Not only will all the pictures be adorable come morning, but they will add to the sense of celebration and festivity that really makes the holiday so special. The best part is, you can pick out your new jammies together.

Christmas Dresses

The Christmas dress is a staple of any young girl’s wardrobe, and it’s not hard to see why. With so many beautiful color combinations to pick from and ways to dress up the looks that really fit the season, your little one is sure to light up every room they walk into. Don’t forget the shoes to match.


Jumpsuits and rompers are always festive, and they’re versatile, as well, which makes them easy to both dress up and dress down. They’re a great addition to any holiday event because they’re made of stretchy, breathable fabric, which means your toddler will be happy and comfortable.

How Can I Make My Toddler’s Outfit Festive?

Are you looking to add a little something special to your toddler’s outfit just in time for the holidays? These simple upgrades are fun and easy and can make a big difference when it comes to their holiday style. 


Everyone knows that the accessories make the outfit. If you have a fun and festive holiday coming up, like the Fourth of July, you can add a bright headband in the style or pattern of the event. Bracelets, necklaces, hair bows, and shoes can all contribute to the overall vibe of your toddler’s holiday style without causing any discomfort.

Holiday Designs

Of course, you can’t go wrong with a fun holiday design. Check out dresses with sparkles or tee-shirts with fun holiday sayings. If your little one is festive, happy, and comfortable, that means everyone is guaranteed to have a great time.

Matching Sets

Matching tops to bottoms is a great way to get a cohesive holiday look for your little one that allows them the flexibility and comfort to play. They’re also great for quick changes if the outfit gets dirty or stained, and there are many different ways to mix and match your favorite sets for a celebratory look every time.

What Fabric and Designs Should I Look For?

A lot of young children don’t like dressing up — and that’s understandable. A lot of the fancy clothing made for toddlers has itchy and uncomfortable fabrics and can feel tight and restrictive. But it doesn’t have to be like that! The right fabrics can make all the difference when it comes to your toddler’s holiday look.

Here are a few great fabric options to look out for:


Velvet is a Christmas staple. It’s warm, super soft, and always looks lovely. The velvet doesn’t even need to be red or green to really get into the holiday spirit, which means you can pick a more neutral color your toddler can wear again throughout the year.


What’s more festive for the holiday than a plaid design in Christmas colors? Plaid is perfect for girls and boys alike and looks great in pants, shirts, dresses, and leggings. If it’s chilly outside, you can swap the plaid pattern for warmer flannel, but both are made with soft, comfortable materials that your child won’t want to remove the second they’re able.


Star dresses are always in season, but they’re perfect for the winter days, especially with a little glitter. A lot of toddlers love that extra shine, and mini pinpricks of stars are a wonderful way to celebrate those chilly months.


Maroon is the classic Christmas color, and it matches perfectly with all our favorite shades of silver and gold, which makes it a great option for toddlers who love accessories. You can find super cute maroon dresses, mix and match them with plaid leggings, pretty bow ties, and shiny Mary Janes for a perfect holiday look every time.

Watercolor Tie-Dye

When we hear tie-dye, we usually think of summer camp, but tie-dye has its place in the chilly months of winter, as well. In fact, watercolor tie-dye is a chic and style design that really stands out.

The look has a sense of motion and movement that’s sure to draw the eye, but the outfit can be as comfortable and loose as your little one likes, so the whole family will get to enjoy the party.

Merry and Bright

The holidays can feel overwhelming, especially if you have to worry about getting the family dressed up for photos and events. But don’t worry. Having a few simple staples on hand can help you put your toddler into an outfit they’ll actually enjoy, and that’s sure to meet all the best looks and styles of the holiday season.
