Even though I don’t have any boys of my own, I’ve always enjoyed shopping for them. I enjoy the challenge of trying to find a few standout outfits in a sea of khaki shorts. You really have to dig, which is definitely not a problem when it comes to shopping for girls. So here, a few ideas for dressing your little men for the holidays – no khakis required!
Black Cord Eton Suit with White Shirt and Red Holiday Plaid Shirt, $94: This adorable minature suit from Lavender Blue has all the details of a memorable holiday outfit: rich fabrics, beautiful colors (the plaid shorts will complement his sister’s dress beautifully!) and fine details, like the cording around the collar.
Classic Argyle Vest, $48, Striped Shirt, $40, and Corduroy Trousers, $38: This classic outfit will please both you and your son: it’s dressed up without being fussy, and won’t make you cringe when you look back on the pictures years from now.
Hickory Stripe Vest, $39, and Old Land Shirt, $49: This stylish vest has cool details, like patch pockets and pinstripes, that make it extraordinary. It looks smart over the button-down shirt with a pair of black pants.
BrooksEase Junior Jacket, $198, Plain Front Dress Trousers, $88, and Tie, $39.50: This classic combo has been sprucing up little boys for almost two centuries, with few changes. It’s flawless and foolproof.
Vest and Tie Tee, $32 and Cord Pants, $28: Planning a more casual holiday celebration? Then this tongue-in-cheek take on a classic holiday look might appeal to you. The comfy tee has a screenprint of a vest and tie, accented with sewn-on buttons. Too cute!
Plaid Shirt, $36, Sweater Vest, $42, and Cords, $28: I love this festive red and black plaid shirt and matching sweater vest – special without being too stuffy.
Lambswool Scotty dog crewneck sweater, $89.50: Boys rarely get to sparkle, but this stylish sweater gives him the opportunity to shine at your holiday gathering.
Argyle Vest and Herringbone Pants Set, $49.50: Spiffy style for the littlest ones, this 3 piece set is smart and budget-friendly as well.
Sharkskin suit jacket, $168, and Thomas Mason patterned washed shirt, $85: These luxurious pieces can dress up anything from khakis to jeans, and the great quality make them a worthy investment.
Cord Pants and Jacket, $29.99: After several high-priced options, it’s refreshing to see that you can still get a cute, complete look for your little guy for less than $30. The orange stitching and helicopter on the back of the jacket make it extra special, and the sturdy fabric means it will hold up to a whole winter of rough play!
