From family dinners to the annual holiday card, there are a variety of reasons to get your little ones dressed up this holiday season. Old fashion statements such as smocking, are coming back big this season – thanks to the ever-fashionable Prince George. Today’s smocking looks are made fresh and new with novelty prints and details, but the classic silhouettes remain the same.
For all those parents wondering how to dress their children for the holiday festivities this year, we’ve tapped zulily’s kids fashion expert, Shawn Redman, to compile a few traditional holiday looks to keep your kids stylish this holiday season. Here are her tips:
· It’s no surprise Smocking is back and better than ever. For example, you’ll see
donning woven, tailored styles
that represent an emergence of a more sophisticated look. Pair a smocked tee
with pants (or a playsuit for an infant) for a classic holiday look. Prince George
· Bishop Dresses are another timeless silhouette that highlight smocking along the neckline, creating a sweet, softer look. For little girls, I love traditional red Bishop dresses with an embroidered holiday motif on the yoke (i.e. Christmas trees, Santa, poinsettias, snowmen). You can style it with tights and patent leather Mary Janes.
· Rompers, Playsuits, and Bubbles: These are classic one-piece garments that are perfect festive finery for infants. Style them for girls with a matching hair bow. For Boys, you can pair them with oxfords or slip-ons with knee high socks.
· John Johns are another classic holiday look for boys. They can be layered with crisp white shirt or turtleneck and paired with lace-up oxfords.
