Keep reading for 10 suggestions to help you find the perfect boutique baby Christmas outfit for your holiday photo.
The Best Baby Girl Christmas Outfits
Baby girl formal dresses are typically lacy, frothy creations that will make your baby girl look like a Christmas angel. Whether you are taking your holiday photos as a family, or just want pictures of your baby alone, a baby girl Christmas dress boutique is the perfect place to get the perfect dress. Here are five sweet baby girl party dresses that will put the perfect finishing touches on your holiday photos.
Poppy Lace Dress and Bonnet
: This frothy creation has two layers, a layer of ivory silk with an intricate and delicate crocheted floral lace design over the top in a lighter ivory. The dress is shorter, more of a party length compared to the full length of the Penelope silk dress. A matching bonnet will frame her face adorably for the perfect holiday photo.
Penelope Silk Dress and Bloomers
: While this beautiful ivory silk dress with bloomers is marketed as a christening dress, it's a perfect gown for a formal holiday photo shoot. Just a bit of embroidered netting lace on the bodice makes it simple and understated, yet so perfect for your little girl's very first Christmas dress. For infants the skirt is long, like a traditional christening dress, but for older ages the mid-calf or ankle length will allow for some movement. Matching silk bloomers allow for a variety of classic and adorable poses for your baby.
Gwen Romper Dress:
The Gwen romper dress is a combination dress and romper, with a romper under-layer of super soft cotton for freedom of movement. The outfit may have been designed for your baby's comfort, but the long skirt of beautiful lace will offer a gorgeous classic look for all of your holiday photos. For coordinating accessories, you can also order a cap, fitted bonnet, headband, or booties to match the dress.
Fiona Gold Dress
: This gorgeous, classic party dress is just right for your baby's first Christmas. The under layer is a beautiful gold colored silk, with an overlay of delicately embroidered floral lace organza in ivory for contrast. A wide satin sash ties at the waist for a vintage look. The length is long on an infant, but could be a shorter dress with more freedom of movement on a toddler, thanks to the custom fit of the tie waist.
Victoria Puff Sleeve Dress
: This gorgeous, vintage-look lace dress features beautiful silk in either pink champagne or ivory. The ivory lace overlay features edge lace instead of a hem for an extra special touch. The dress can be purchased with a matching headband, bib, booties, or even a christening blanket, or order a full matching set of accessories.
Our Top Baby Boy Christmas Outfits
Baby boys may not wear dresses, but that doesn't mean they can't dress up! There are plenty of dapper outfits to choose from when picking out a baby boy Christmas outfit for your perfect holiday photos.
Elliot 3-Piece Suit:
Nothing is cuter than a baby boy in a 3-piece suit! This navy jacket is trimmed in white for a classic look. A white cotton onesie and white terry pants complete the look. For a truly dapper look, don't forget the separate matching newsboy cap! This look is perfect to go with one of the girls' dresses above for matching Christmas outfits for boy and girl.
Grayson 3-Piece Suit:
For a slightly lighter look than the Elliot, check out the Grayson 3-piece suit for baby boys. The quilted jacket comes in a soft gray (available in shades of sea foram and coral as well) with white trim on the collars and pockets. White pants and a white onesie come with the suit, and you can complete the look with booties and a newsboy hat that matches the jacket.
Elijah 3-Piece Suit
: This white 3-piece baby boy suit presents an breezy vintage look similar to the look of men's white linen suits in decades past. The jacket and pants are a matching soft quilted cotton with a soft white onesie underneath. A matching newsboy cap is available for this baby boy's suit as well.
Harrison Sweater 3-Piece Suit
: For a more casual look that's still classic and adorable, check out our 3-piece suit with a sweater jacket. The light blue sweater has vintage details and the white pants are textured. The outfit is finished with a soft white onesie. The matching newsboy cap can be purchased separately, and is the same color and knit as the sweater. Pair this with the Penelope or Gwen for a perfect pair of newborn Christmas outfits for boy and girl.
Navy Ribbed Cotton Top and Leggings:
This baby boy Christmas outfit is another casual look that's perfect for a nice holiday photo. Choose between three colors, navy, white, and ivory. Multiple colors can be purchased for mixing and matching. Pair with a more casual girl's dress for perfect matching sibling outfits.
How Should I Dress My Newborn in the Winter?
Professional holiday photos are the perfect way to celebrate your family during the holiday season, but it's important to dress your baby in an appropriate outfit to mark the occasion. A fancy baby Christmas outfit should be dressy enough to go with siblings and parents who will be in the photo with her, and should coordinate with the planned background of the photo. If you don't know what the background will be like, you can never go wrong with neutral holiday colors such as white, ivory, and gold for girls, and white, gray, blue, and navy for boys. To keep Baby warm when traveling to and from parties and photo shoots, check out our assortment of coordinating blankets, especially for our baby Christmas outfits in 0-3 months.
