Molly Vernon from Luxaby Baby & Child is back with her holiday outfit picks for the Big Kids. If you’re looing for the little ones, head over here. Whether you are having professional pictures taken for the holiday card or just preparing for the holiday revelry; Molly has your cuties covered!
Child – (5-7yrs)
This is the age to WOW! Put them in something fabulous ( it won’t be long before they won’t let you anymore). I have two favorites this year that I think are so incredibly stunning. Baby CZ’s Harper Dress in Navy and the amazing Gold Damask Party Dress by Rachel Riley. I’ve watched the girls light up when they try these two on and they photograph beautifully.
For the boy – it is time to take it up a notch. A blazer that is either textured or in a fun print is perfect for this age. I absolutely love a brown velvet cord blazer but if you really want to hit the ball out of the park the Tartan Blazer by Baby CZ is the way to go. Complete with elbow patches and leather buttons it is timeless and festive.
This is when things start to get tricky as they start having – wait for it- opinions on what they want to wear. I have had great success with this age group when you put the young girls in a fabulous skirt and simple top. My pick for this year is the Baby CZ Petticoat Skirt in either a solid or a fun print. Pair the solid skirt with a nice silk top or the print with a solid top in either navy or pink (my favorite would be the Baby CZ silk beaded shirt) and you have one fabulous party outfit!
I do have another favorite look for the more ‘sporty’ girl at this age – a tunic top and leggings. Baby CZ makes a gorgeous liberty print tunic made dressier with a beautiful satin bow to give it a dressier look and it is easy and fun to wear!
For the boys it is all about the blazer!!! You can not miss with the Vineyard Vines Two-Button Blazer in Navy. Pair it with his favorite Vineyard Vines tie (I suggest choosing one which showcases his favorite sport so he won’t mind wearing it) and you have the picture of handsome.
As always, you need to keep your children’s taste and personality in mind. You are not going to have a successful photo shoot if your kids are irritated by what they are wearing or don’t feel like themselves in the clothes you picked. Let them LOVE it and let their personality shine in the photo. Catch them in a candid moment when they are walking down the stairs instead of the posed couch shot. And hey, while you’re at it – jump in the photo too! Believe me, your friends want to see you as well.
Happy Holiday to you and yours from all of us at Luxaby Baby & Child!
