Classic Christmas Sweaters
While “ugly Christmas sweater parties” are all the rage these days, a classic Christmas sweater never goes out of style. When choosing what to wear for Christmas photos, look for a basic red cable knit or a simple design in just a few colors.
As you plan the perfect outfit for your family Christmas photo shoot, don’t forget to pick out a few props! Family traditions—like leaving out cookies and milk for Santa—can provide great inspiration for these finishing touches.
Matching Your Little One
You don’t have to have Christmas picture outfits that match in every way in order to complement your little one. Pick a particular item—like a plaid vest—that matches, then complete the rest of the outfit to fit your individual styles.
A Touch of Gold
If your Christmas outfit is fairly neutral in color and patterns, take it up a notch with your accessories. Sparkly gold earrings, bangles and a watch dress up this red and white outfit in a stunning way.
Winter is a bright and happy season, but it’s also cold! Keep warm during Christmas photos by layering a cozy vest over red and black plaid. Dark jeans and bright red boots complete the look perfectly.
Dressed for Snow
Taking Christmas photos in the snow is a wonderful idea, but don’t forget to plan an outfit that’s as comfortable as it is cute! Red boots and a knit beanie will look great in pictures and keep you warm as your photographer snaps away.
Mix and Match
As long as no one outfit is too busy on its own, don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns, textures and colors in your family’s Christmas photos. This family mixes neutral sweaters with a bright coat and blue jeans with a sparkly skirt, yet they complement one another perfectly.
