Taking your family to go get the tree is going to be some of the best memories you make. Picking out outfits for them may not be, but here are quite a few ideas for you to start building that dream wardrobe for your family photos at the Christmas tree farm.
1. Getting Cozy In Plaid

7. Mix + Match
Mixing and matching your Christmas tree farm outfits is my favorite way to curate the most beautiful family photos. Let each personality shine!

If you’re not going to pop in red or blend in green, a dark blue is another great accent color. The cool toned family will always look great together.
9. Bright Neutrals
Light and bright neutral tones are the easiest and most elegant way to go with this photoshoot.
10. Playful Patterns
Putting the little ones in playful patterns and the grown ups in colors that match is a cute way to let the littles look and feel little while they still are.
11. White Warm Splashes
These cuties donned their white dresses but opted for red or warm accents. This is a beautiful way to add some cohesiveness without fully matching.
Matching Christmas Outfits
Want to match completely? Here are some of my favorite ideas and outfits to do so.
This is such a fun tradition, and there’s something about matching during the holidays that make it a little less cheesy. Or more acceptable. Either one.
12. The Same Plaid
Using the same plaid, even differently is the easiest and most Christmassy way to match for family photos.
13. Festive Tees
Wearing festive matching tee shirts will be a winner every time. Cute and casual and so fun!
14. Like Father Like Son
These are the most precious father/son matching sweaters. Throw these on and you’ll have the cutest pictures around.

If you’ve got some little girls and some little boys, this is a really fun option. Flannel and tulle, what a combination.
16. Sleeping Reindeer
How cute are these sleeping reindeer sweaters! Running around the tree farm in this just shines “Christmas magic.”
17. To The Point
A “2023 Family Christmas” tee is so fun, especially if you make this photo a tradition. Track the years by the tee shirts!
18. Red Polos
If you live somewhere a little warmer, this style might be more along the lines of what you’re looking for. Grab some red polos that are still festive in color.

23. Winter Staples
A red knit scarf and a puffer vest are so great to have on hand, and even greater when they get to be used in a photoshoot!
Playing with different textures like this couple here is so precious. Velvet and knits are so perfect for the Christmas season.
25. Varied Neutrals
This couple’s shoots came together beautifully with all of the varied neutral details.
These complimentary knits are so cute, and they bring the couple out of the dark woods behind them.

I like this dressier version this couple did. Using similar colors like navy and dark green, and wearing a blazer and cute scarf.
31. Puffer Vests
I love a good puffer vest, especially if it’s snowing when you go, this is a good way to stay warm and stay flattering in photos.

I love this plaid skirt and how it pops in each photo! This is a great piece to build your outfits around to give it a little texture.

34. Fleece Blanket
This fleece blanket that this couple uses is such a cute accessory to add to your photos with your boo.

Mugs of cocoa may not be outfit accessories, but more photo props that make the photos so personal and cozy. I love this idea for a staged shoot at the Christmas tree farm.

Another photo prop instead of an accessory, adding a piece of mistletoe makes your kissing pictures more fun and festive!

A sled as something for the kids to sit on or play with is such a cute prop that adds dimension to the photoshoot.
Your Tree Farm Style Questions Answered
What Do You Wear To A Christmas Tree Farm?
I went to a Christmas tree farm for the first time a few years ago, and I did so much digging around to see if you were supposed to go in athletic wear to do some heavy lifting or if this was a dressy affair. And the true answer is that there isn’t a right or wrong one.
If you would rather wear a sweatshirt and leggings, by all means go right ahead! Get warm and cozy.
If you want to dress pretty for photos, have at it!
It’s a great photo op for everyone to passes through, and it’s always a memory with whomever you’re picking a tree out with. Come camera ready to snap a photo with your loved ones.
Expert Tip: The only must, which isn’t hard to adhere to in December, is closed toed shoes.
Walking around on these grounds can have all kinds of hazards and such, so go ahead and opt for boots or sneakers while picking your outfits.
Matching Vs. Coordinating Outfits… Which Is Best?
If you’re dressing a whole crew, or even with just your significant other, you can either choose to match the outfits or coordinate them.
Matching outfits are always so cute for families and couples, but if you want to coordinate there are a couple of different ways you can do this.
One way is through colors. Being intentional to choose colors that are easily paired well together makes it so that your outfits are cohesive even if they don’t match exactly. Browns with tans, blues with greens, reds with oranges are great starting points along with your classic neutral pieces that will just really tie it together.
Styles are the second major way to you can accomplish the coordinating look.
- If one of you is in knitwear like sweater or cardigan, you both should.
- If one of you is in a trench coat, you both should, of different colors.
- Another example would be if you were to wear leather pants and make your man wear a leather jacket.
Using the same texture or fabric goes a long way to make this coordinated vas. matchy matchy look happen in style.
Hopefully you’re already curating the best set of outfits for photos at the Christmas tree farm based on these outfit ideas above! Regardless of which route you go, there’s going to be stunning photos as a result, so no stress.
