Inside: Adorable matching Christmas outfits for siblings: children or adults!
Christmas is just in general such a cute holiday. There are beautiful and sentimental elements to all of the Christmas traditions that we know and love, but overall the entire holiday is surrounded around cute and fun vibes.
Some of these come down to matching Christmas outfits for siblings– whether they’re kids or grown adults, it seems to be a common theme in a lot of families that siblings tend to match. Whether it’s pajamas for Christmas morning or matching flannels for family photos for the Christmas cards to go out, there’s a matching vibe going on throughout the family.
If you need to get some inspiration, I’ve collected 19 of my favorite matching Christmas outfits for siblings– young or old!
These are way too cute– I know you’re going to love them all. Get ready for the Christmas season in style and get matchy with your sibs!
Matching Siblings For Pictures
Taking family Christmas photos? Matching the kids (no matter how young or old the kids are!) is always a classic element to a Christmas photo.
If they’re children, it’s always a little easier to match them up in something a little extra and a little on the more festive side. The older they get, while you can still match them in coordinating sweaters or flannels, the matching gets a little trickier. Unless you put them all in the same pieces, which can be a fun vibe too!
But if you have adult kids that you don’t want to force to be exact outfit matches, there are some other sneaky ways to make sure they match accordingly.
Colors. If both parents are in one color and all of the siblings are in another, it’s a simple but effective way to match the siblings for photos.
Certain pieces. Put the kids all in sweaters! Or leather jackets if you’re more modern, or sweat suits if you’re super trendy! They don’t have to be exact matches but matching certain pieces can help bring the photo together. And leave the parents in something a little different, whether in color or in style.
Exact matches. Or maybe your style IS to match the siblings in the exact same pieces. If they’re little kids, you can swing the reindeer sweater, but if they’re older you may want to go with the same red cable knit. Or something of the sort.
Coordinating Kids Outfits
Kids are so fun to experience the holidays with– it’s like being a child again when you get to see it through their eyes instead of your own adult ones after so many years! So playing dress up with the kids is too fun– and coordinating them for whatever occasion is a good time.
So how do you coordinate kids’ outfits? If this isn’t an area of strength for you, then no stress. I’ve got some tips!
We’ve already touched on it a little bit, but there are a couple different ways you can go to match sibling outfits. It all depends on where you want to be on the scale between subtle and super extra. There are some inbetweens, but likely you will end up on one side or the other.
Bare minimum version of this is matching colors. As long as the colors coordinate, you’ll be golden. You can match them using all reds, greens, creams, gold, or black. Using different shades is a fun way to coordinate their outfits and add creative dimension using color. Having a red plaid and a red solid counts in this case– it doesn’t have to be matching solid colors.
We all love to see little tiny sisters in matching dresses: a little black velvet or a green plaid dress made in both of their sizes is a precious way to dress your little girls up for Christmas. Same goes for boys– a little pair of matching suits are way too cute!
Matching With Your Siblings
Older siblings looking to coordinate for the Christmas festivities? Sometimes it can be fun to go all out and get the same tacky Christmas sweater and call it a day! But if you want to do something a little more sophisticated to match with your sibs, plan it out according to theme and style.
Decide on a dress code like super casual with leggings for the girls and jeans for the boys or something a little dressier. Then choose colors and pieces. If this is for a family gathering, make sure everyone’s personal style is still in play, but match through the vibes. If y’all all want to go a little cozy chic, do it. If you want to go a little edgy street, do it. Matching isn’t all about the exact pieces used but the style!
Now, snagging a green cardigan that you all love is a cute idea as well. There are just so many ways to match with your siblings for Christmas, just have fun with it!
