Whether you are participating in community events this holiday season, you are planning to take the kids for photos with Santa, or you are simply celebrating at home with family and friends, dressing up is an important part of the holiday season. While you may have your holiday outfit ready to go, you may still be perplexed about how to appropriately dress your children this holiday season. Here are a some stylish outfit ideas for your little ones this year.

Little boys always look handsome in a button-down Oxford shirt, a pair of lug-sole dress shoes, and a nice pair of khaki pants. If the event calls for a more dressy look, black dress pants with brogue shoes and a button-down shirt is a handsome outfit choice. Top it off with a dress vest or blazer and a clip-on tie for a polished look; kids clip on ties take the hassle and frustration out of getting your little boy dressed during the holidays. Necktie Emporium,, is an example of an online shop with a huge selection of ties for every male in your family. A dressy-casual, but still handsome, look for your son this holiday season is a polo shirt layered under an argyle-patterned sweater vest; top it off with some moccasins and a pair of corduroy pants to complete the look.

Your little girl will shine this holiday season in a black, red or hunter green velvet dress. Velvet is having a major fashion moment, and it is always an appropriate choice for dressier events during the holidays. If you can find a dress with lace trim or glitter accents, it takes the look up a notch. Top off the look with tights and patent Mary-Jane shoes for a classic holiday look. Most little girls love twirling around in their pretty holiday dresses. If your little one is more comfortable in pants, a nice crew-neck sweater with a pair of classic trousers and ballet flats is also a feminine look that offers more comfort.

Dressing up, for many, is a time-honored tradition during the holidays. For some families, it is the only time of year where everyone gets dressed up and spends time with each another. You will love looking back at photos of your children and family members all dressed up and having fun during the holiday season.
