Choosing Holiday Outfits for Boys + $50 OshKosh B’gosh Gift Card Giveaway


With the holiday season in full swing, we’re finding lots of holiday-related festivities popping up on the calendar. There are family get-togethers, church Christmas pageants, holiday concerts at school and so much more. when I was a little girl I always looked forward to a new, fancy dress to wear during the Christmas season. Fast forward X number of years later and we now have Little R who isn’t particularly crazy about the idea of dressing up for ANY occasion.

The good thing about holiday wardrobes for kids in the 21st century is that we can still look festive and ready for the holidays without having to be formal. That makes things a lot easier! These are some tips for choosing holiday outfits for boys.


Choosing Holiday Outfits for Boys


Think Comfort

The good news is that comfortable can still look good! You don’t have to resort to sweat pants and t-shirts, but choose soft, flexible fabrics and a cozy styles that let your kids have fun and enjoy the festivities.


Think Familiar

Like many kids, Little R thrives on routine. He is happy to do the same things every day, eat the same foods and wear the same clothes. Luckily he wears khakis as part of a school uniform every day, so he is comfortable wearing them. These Classic Twills from OshKosh look great and are comfortable at the same time. Khakis are perfect for any holiday outfit. If your child’s favorite pants can pass as part of their holiday garb, go for it!


Think Festive

The key to any holiday outfit is to make it look festive! The easiest way to do this is with bright colors that make us think of Christmas decorations, wrapping paper and all the other fun and bright parts of the season. This Striped Thermal shirt has bright stripes of red that just practically scream Christmas!
