It’s That Time: Here’s All the Holiday Card Outfit Inspiration You Need

Believe it or not, it’s that time again – time to think about those family photos for your holiday cards. Yes, it feels like summer just flew by us, but before we can blink, it’ll be time to deck the halls. If you’re a constant procrastinator like me, you always miss the amazing Black Friday deals on holiday cards because your cards are not ready. This year, I’m determined to not let it happen again (narrator: she, in fact, did let it happen again).

Planning outfits for the family is always the trickiest part of the equation for me. You want everyone to look put together and coordinated with just the right amount of trends and accessories, but not totally matchy-matchy. For someone who leans on the side of fashionably-challenged, this is a true predicament. Factor in the time it actually takes to gather all of the pieces, keep an eye on sales, and then, get everyone dressed on the same day at the same time – enter, complete overwhelm. You might as well be talking about training for a marathon.

Well, we’re making it easy on you this year. Not only are all of these separates totally on trend for fall, but the majority of them can also be mixed and matched to make simple, aesthetically-pleasing outfits for the whole family that will photograph beautifully (read: no blinding white that will get blown out in every shot). Take our word for it, all the guesswork is done.

All that’s left for you to do is make sure the fam is smile-ready on photo day. My trick? Bring along a non-messy bribe, ahem, treat – my little ones will smile on cue for mini gummy bears any day of the week. Hey, you do what you have to, right?
