Moms are usually caught up in trying to get their kids dressed for the holiday feast that they don’t have much time to get ready themselves. The trick is finding an outfit that looks fabulous without putting in much effort.

For example, a sweater dress with tights and a pair of boots is always in style for winter days and doesn’t take many pieces to look polished. If you have more time, you can add jewelry, a hat, a scarf, a coat, and a bag to take it to the next level, but you certainly don’t have to.

When it comes to hair and makeup, keep it simple so that you don’t run late. You may even want to invest in one of these human hair lace front wigs from TVHF so that you don’t ever have to worry about styling your hair for important events ever again!


The best way to dress for Christmas dinner is in a festive yet tasteful manner. The holiday season is a time when families come together and celebrate the year’s achievements. It’s important that you represent your family well while still fitting in with the rest of the guests at the event.

If you’re one of several men attending, consider wearing a dark suit with a lighter-colored shirt and tie. Consider wearing a nicer sweater or blazer with slacks or jeans if dinner is more casual. 


Little boys for Christmas dinner can wear any outfit. Your little boy may want to dress up like a reindeer, a snowman, or a Christmas elf. They may also want to dress in their Sunday best or even their favorite superhero outfit. The important thing is that your little boy feels good about what he’s wearing and that you feel comfortable and confident about how he looks.


Here are some outfit ideas for a little girl at Christmas dinner:

  • Dress your little girl in a festive dress, such as a short-sleeve green velvet dress with a puffball skirt  
  • Have your little girl wear a girl’s ruffle sleeve shirt in the traditional colors of Christmas with a pair of leggings, jeans, or under a pinafore dress 
  • You could also have your little girl wear a bright or sparkly dress so she will stand out among the crowd at Christmas dinner.  
  • Consider letting your daughter do something herself this year by wearing slippers or ankle boots that she can keep on during the whole meal.


Christmas dinner is a particular time for family and friends to get together, share a meal, and of course, some gifts. But what should you wear? Many outfit ideas would be appropriate, but here are some suggestions for baby.

  • Christmas onesie might be the most comfortable of the options, but it’s also the least stylish. You can always make them cute with some matching socks and shoes!
  • Dressy Christmas outfit – these look super festive and adorable with a bow or other embellishment on top of a dress or sweater. Get your baby dressed up in one of these with their favorite toy or blanket for an extra personal touch! They’re great for photos too!

Don’t forget to pack this cute three pack of burp cloths since you’ll need them once baby has their Christmas dinner too (whether it’s formula or breastmilk, you can never pack too many in your diaper bag).  

Wear what you feel most comfortable in. If the invitation says dressy, you can wear a suit or business casual attire. If it sounds casual, then jeans and a nice shirt will do just fine. You don’t want to make your host uncomfortable with your dress code, but at the same time, you don’t want to make yourself feel uncomfortable either.
