Why a Special Thanksgiving Outfit for Kids?
When it comes to family gatherings, the focus is often on delicious Thanksgiving dinner and time spent with loved ones. But let's face it, adorable kids in even more adorable Thanksgiving outfits are a sight to behold! Dressing your child in a special outfit not only makes for great photos but it also adds a festive touch to the Thanksgiving holiday. Even if the turkey ends up a little dry, if your kid is sporting a "Gobble Gobble" Thanksgiving bodysuit, all the rolls are homemade—at least, in the photos!
What's Trending: Popular Styles for Baby Boys and Girls
Thanksgiving fashion for kids has come a long way from simple onesies. For baby girls, a Thanksgiving dress with matching headbands in fall colors is all the rage. You might opt for an embroidered cardigan to go with it. If you have a baby boy, consider a plaid long-sleeve bodysuit with a bowtie and corduroy pants.
These outfits are not just limited to "Thanksgiving turkey" and "pumpkin" themes anymore. Brands like Burt's Bees Baby and Children's Place offer organic cotton rompers and tees with playful turkey prints and slogans like "First Thanksgiving" for your baby’s first Thanksgiving, giving you an array of choices to dress up your little one.
Should You DIY or Buy? The Newborn Thanksgiving Outfit Dilemma
While there are plenty of ready-made outfits for baby boys and girls, some parents opt for a more personalized touch by going the DIY route. You can easily find the perfect outfit set that includes a turkey print bodysuit with bowtie, matching suspenders, and even little gobble foot socks. However, if you want to add a personal touch, why not embroider their initials or their first Thanksgiving date on the outfit?
Remember, whether you buy or DIY, comfort is key. Look for soft, breathable materials like organic cotton so your child can enjoy their Thanksgiving day to the fullest.
Toddlers to Pre-teens: How to Mix and Match Thanksgiving Clothes
As your kids grow, they may want more say in their Thanksgiving outfits. For toddler boys, a long-sleeve tee paired with denim overalls creates a cute but rugged look. Toddler girls might prefer a Thanksgiving tunic with fall-themed leggings. Let's not forget accessories like a cute headband for girls or a funky "Happy Thanksgiving" hat for boys.
One can never go wrong with classic fall clothes like flannel shirts for boys and plaid skirts for girls. Mixing and matching these items can result in the cutest outfits that are not only trendy but also comfortable for active kids.
What About the Guests? Dressing Your Kids When You're a Guest
Being a guest at someone else's Thanksgiving dinner doesn't mean your child's outfit has to be any less cute. If you're attending a more formal gathering, girls can sport a more refined dress, perhaps with tights and a shawl, while boys can wear slacks and a dress shirt. However, for a casual setting, a Turkey Day outfit like a sweatshirt and comfy pants is more than adequate.
Just remember, you should also consider the host's household. If it's a laid-back setting, casual but cute Thanksgiving clothes set the mood just right!
